    Just ordered last night from the Egg:
    EVGA 141-BL-E757-TR LGA 1366 Intel X58 ATX X58 SLI LE (cool looking black MB :))
    OCZ Gold 6GB (3 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600
    COOLER MASTER V8 RR-UV8-XBU1-GP 120mm Rifle CPU Cooler (unitl I water cool)

    Should get the parts Monday or Tuesday and am going to switch out my current rig into an old AeroCool case and use a new PC Power & Cooling 500W PSU for it that I purchased as well. I am going to leave it water cooled using my sucky Exos2 set-up.
    So my new i7 rig will go into the P182 along with my current EVGA 275 GTX and ABS 1100W PSU.
    I am going to need to get a cheap GPU for the E8500 rig...
    But I will finally have an i7 crunching rig to go with my E8500 :toast:

    Well my E7200 cruncher is finally up and crunching, it replaced my socket 939 AMD rig, this setup should put out at least twice as much as my AMD rig did. For now tis setup outside of a case at default settings. I will put in the case tomorrow


    Special thanks to Paulieg who gave me a great deal on the CPU and especially Mike047 who sent me a board for only shipping :toast: you guys :rockout: :respect:

    Here it is, tomorrow I will isntall the Zalman cooler I had on teh AMD rig to improve temps a bit and bring up the clocks :rockout:

    Sorry guys, but my folks told me I need to keep my computer off when I'm not using it.
    I will still be crunching when I am using, but it won't be much. :(

    As a kid I was always in trouble for not doing what I was told so I was just thinking how I'd handle this situation. I could just see me just turning the monitor off when I was not using the computer. But being older and wiser I wouldn't tell anyone to disobey their parents.:)

    They are doing enough already to keep me out of debt with school and everything.

    Yeah, I kinda need to live with them since I can't really afford anything. This damn economy really hit me hard.

    I plan on it! It just won't be 24/7 like it has been lately. Just whenever I get on my main rig will it be crunching (and folding as well).

    You sure that's not a 600MHz? Didn't the slots only go to 600MHz? The 750MHz should have been a 495 pin socket.. :roll: :p

    nope, it's a 750MHz slot 1 pentium 3. trust me, I have it on my desk as I type this. here's the code from it: SL456
    and the code from my super leet pentium 2, which is installed in the computer, but I have it memorized: SL2HA
    there's another code for the pentium 2, again, memorized: 80522PX300512EC
