    naw, its outside a case. Cooling is not an issue. PSU is the only thing I can think off. But the voltages are almost identical, why won't it happen now?

    Cool that's a good ps and single is always better.

    2.10v.. This set you have to set the voltage to get the 1066MHz or it will default to 1.8v 800MHz.

    Chicken are you using any kind of line cleaner?.. like a UPS? Do you have a lot of brown outs? If you're not feeding your psu solid maybe? Just a thought.

    naw, just straight into the socket.

    Unless I am drawing too much power maybe? I have 3 rigs in my room, but if the power grid was to be crapping or something then wouldn't all the rigs do the same. I switched cables to use the one that came with the PSU, maybe this cable is bad???

    You can always test the cable bro.. but I've got 15 year old cables that still work.. hehehe Most of the time its just the ground pin braking off.. Not really the cable failing.. Here if you don't have one of these http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16899887004 ... Pick one up or a multi meter.

    I think I got it figured out, I think.

    I removed the waterloop getting ready to start checking stuff out again. I removed it from the mobo tray, it was not in the case though, I was just using the mobo tray as the mobos resting place. I put my qx cruncher in the TT case now :D. So the tech station where the qx used to sit, is now home for the i7. its on stock cooler but i loaded my 4.3 Ghz settings and without load I just let it run furmark, and it ran for about five minutes perfectly fine. I am at defaults now and crunching :toast:

    It could have only either been grounding to the tray, or the block grounding, what do you guys think?

    seems we have less than 50% of the team crunching.

    i've been watching this for about 2 weeks now.

    any ideas on how to get this up a bit?

    how can we nicely get some of our idle members going again?

    To the members who have stopped crunching, please rejoin us in our crunching efforts, we dearly miss you. I understand that crunching can be a big power draw amongst other things, and given today's economy still not being as strong as it has been, this can be a tall order. But we are not asking for 24/7 commitment like all of us do, only that you do as best you can. Thank you to those who already are contributing, we look forward to regaining the support of any members who wish to contribute again, and we will always welcome new members with great pleasure.

    at that point your output should be very similar to mines, give or take. :toast: That'll be awesome.

    i hope so but i think yours maybe alittle higher still because the CPUs you have crunching are more powerful. But if i get a board for the other dual(after i get the quad) then i will have 17 threads then i think we will be neck and neck

    Damn it! Ewiz took forever to get my i7 860 shipped out, and now the UPS tracking has just shown "billing information received" for 2 days. It's probably going to be another 3-5 business days before I get the chip, and my points are suffering!!

    Good to see you back fits!

    yeah true, but that's why I said give or take, but shouldn't be too far off.

    Don't worry dude, as you can tell we got your back :)

    People have mixed experiences with ZZF. I've never had a problem though. They are just not quite as fast as the egg.

    ZipZoomFly is a perfectly fine place to buy parts, I bought 2 PNY 9600GSOs from them for $40 each back in June, cards arrived 3 days after order was placed :)
