    :toast: Thanks to a very very helpful and considerate person on our WCG team I have a socket 775 board heading my why at only the cost of shipping. Which will then lead to having my E7200 from paulie, up and running :D that rig should easily double or more the daily production of my x2 rig. Looking forward to that :D

    i used to have a few things laying around, got rid of my 9950 a while back and a board I had. About all I got now is some DDR2 RAM :laugh:, maybe just DDR, not sure if I have spare DDR2

    no chance. proc ist not even supported, so no bios update regarding 955´s

    at least not until biostar does so, the board runs perfectly fine otherwise

    i have non tracers... the yellow, clipless one...

    i hope so too. it would be very practical using physx/fold with it, and using the hd4850 for graphics, as soon as it returns from rma

    Holy hell my room is a sauna. 94 (98 tomorrow? Yes!) in Tacoma is absolutely unheard of for more than a day at a time... its been like a week.. I have one big fan pointed at my face and I still am losing a gallon of water per hour I swear. Put the hand on the exhaust fan... its just a heater... Can't wait for my i7 and the heat it will produce... oh boy.

    Crunch on!
