    Oops!
    Cap'N Crunch

    [​IMG]


    Cap'n Crunch Chicken Fingers
    2 lbs of chicken tenders
    4 cups of Cap'n Crunch cereal
    1 egg
    1 cup milk
    1 cup flour
    2 tsp. black pepper
    2 tsp. garlic powder
    Vegetable oil

    Crush Cap'n Crunch cereal in a bowl and set it aside.
    In another bowl, beat the eggs into the milk and set that aside.
    In a third bowl, combine the flour, garlic powder and black pepper.

    Cover the chicken in the flour mixture, then dip into the eggs, then coat in the Cap'n Crunch crumbs.

    Coat a frying pan with vegetable oil and place over medium flame.
    Cook the coated tenders in the oil until brown on each side.

    Best served with honey mustard.

    It was set in the BIOS as 1.476, I set it to 1.39. The VID is 1.40- I was going to up the Multi, but I have a lot of research on AMD OCing to do and no time right now for OCCT Testing.

    side note: Put me in a battle with VW now and I bet I sweep him :D :D

    easily, i lost a few crunchers... also i dont run full force all the time on my phenom, because i experimented very much with the new SLI setup ;)in 2 days my q9550 should hit the road.
    in about 3 weeks, my x2 5000 should return. and in about 2-4 weeks, the nettop of my mum.
    i also may will buy another 775 board, with onboard, to add ANOTHER cruncher. also, an x2 939, and an am2 board, lay to rest, unused! i see, what i can do :D

    EDIT: Herr Mindweaver, i can feel with you. why cant it work for one time, and for always!!!
    i also dream of this:eek:

    Besänftige den Geist der Maschine. ein wütender Maschinengeist, ist das schlimmste was einem Rechner passieren kann, ausser einer geplatzen dual stage;)

    see it as a "Quest"... if we dont take this "Quests" we simply cant evolve ;)

    I think the Mega Shadow has like some special coating to help it with temps, not sure though. It's a sexy beast, I'll tell you that much though!

    Got the Xeon 3220 I was expecting and replaced my E8500 (great cpu) with it to crunch. It has been lapped which is a first for me.

    [​IMG]

    Taking it easy so far. Crunching at 100% for over 12 hours now. I will clock higher though when I get the time to mess with it:)

    This is with using the Koolance 340 WB:

    looks good hammer. Those are the same exact blocks I had when I fully watercooled my ASUS M3A32-MVP Deluxe Board. Just a different CPU block, but the blocks for the board were the same :)

    Very nice!

    BTW, I ran my Q6600 at up to 1.45v, so you have a lot of voltage headroom, and the P5E should give good FSB speeds as well
