    Well, I have slowed down my 3 main computer, the G3220, 2500k and 2700k from 100% to 60%

    Less heat, electricity, and "damage" since the 2700k is clocked to 4.5ghz 1.32v, I'll maybe wait till the WC setup will be ready to push it back to 100%.

    I will have a good drop on PPD, but it is only for summer. Going back on automn at 100% to heat the office :D

    Well, after 3 OS installs and a corrupted bios update, the i7-870 is up and running WCG again. Currently clocked at 3.8ghz/1.38vcore/66c on water and has been stable all day. Had to install windows to get everything optimized, but may install Linux if it runs stable for the next few days. I'm running this rig in the dining room, due to the heat from the servers in the spare bedroom. Trying to keep the temps down on this rig.

    So team, can you maybe through a suggestion my way. I got a free broken amd a8 laptop that broke because it was jumped on by a child. I couldn't get it to show a picture through its hdmi port, so I figured the motherboard might be broken too. I took it apart and checked, the motherboard is intact and looks like it is in good condition. While apart I took of the broken screen entirely from the laptop so now it is just the keyboard body side.

    Its only external video port is the hdmi. If I can fix it, I have a free low power cruncher. I am out of ideas on why it wont show a picture at the moment, so here I am picking your brains. Can anyone think of something I maybe should try?

    I've seen it where a bad palm rest would keep a laptop from booting. Can you removed it, disconnecting it completely?

    The touchpad? Once I figured out how to open the darn thing, I was good, and now I can take detach anything. Hp used about 30 screws when it only really need 6, at least when I put it together.

    Tomorrow my 4770k should be back up and crunching. I've been messing with my pc for several days now after that leak, changing and moving stuff, and tomorrow night looks to be the night. :)

    Tried to get all my systems back up and crunching last night. The 4820k went up, but 2500k and celeron can't get internet and I don't know why yet. I don't have time to troubleshoot, as I will be gone for a week on a work.

    The palm rest usually means the touchpad and the entire area below the keyboard. Depending on the brand and model of the laptop, it could be a fingerprint reader, speakers, IDK what else. Most laptops that means the entire top of the shell around the keyboard. Sometimes there could be a short somewhere in that.

    The wires used to connect the keyboard and touchpad to the MB, are usually very small and delicate. Replace, or Sister, them and it might solve the problem.
