    Yeah, Newegg has really spoiled us to the point that I hate shopping elsewhere. If you want a successful business model, just look at the Egg.

    Actually, you should look at ewiz too. That's where I buy a majority of my parts now, since I get taxed with Newegg. Fast shipping in general, and their RMA process is pretty decent.

    +1 to ewiz. Have some killer deals sometimes and always have taken care of customer (at least in my roommates and I experience).

    im excited i tried folding on my i7 but omg the heat was scaring me that and with the cards and the proc going at it she got unstable incredably easy. but im super excited now it took me weeks to get the WCG server running but i finally did it! drivers were a nightmare apparently no OS in existence likes the megaraid 500 card and i have alot of OS's but its doing it! and hopefully if the ocnnection doesnt drop out it will even upload WU!

    I was down 2 rigs for the majority of the day, so my numbers are down. Good news is, my i7 860 has now joined the family, and should start spitting out points in a day or two.

    I got robbed of pie twice today. The update before last Duxx had me by 3 points, and now Paulieg has me by just a few points also. This is BS, share with me guys :( :roll: Stock clocks are killing my output.


    How you like the 860 Paul?

    Can't say yet, since I'm waiting on the 1156 mount for my Megahalems. The stock cooler is so lame that I'm only running stock right now. I did play around with the chip just a bit. I was able to run BOINC for a few minutes at 3.9ghz 1.21v. Had to stop due to heat. I'm guessing this chip will fly once I get the mega on top of her. ;)

    you wouldn't happen to have a spare Mega right? I'd be interested in that, if not I'm purchasing one for my i7 my next paycheck. on stock cooler right now and i'm running stock clocks too! I won't be going water for a bit again, till I figure out if I keep it in a case or not. Plus, if results are good with the mega, I'll keep it on air :D

    No extras :laugh: I have 2 right now. I can tell you that it beats the TRUE by a couple of degrees, and has beefier mounting hardware. In some ways I miss water, but the Mega is the closest thing to water you can get, and there is no maintenance involved. If you grab one, get it from Gary at Sidewinders. He's got it for the best price, and he ships fast.

    What temps were you getting or are you getting with it and what settings?

    Sidewinders was the first place I looked, but PPCS has it cheaper and they are wayyy closer to me than Gary meaning shipping is faster and cheaper.

    On my 920 I was getting load temps in the low 60's at 3.9ghz. I am talking about serious load though, running BOINC at 100% during a LinX 20 cycle run.
