    Awesome!
    Will you OC the i7 again then?

    The way I tend to run things (which I believe makes the most sense) is all of my CPUs on WCG, and my GPU(s) on F@H. That way each project gets some help. I think we're actually increasing our buffer against the Canucks, our PPD has been higher than theirs for a decent while now :toast:

    naw, I'll be doing suicide runs with it as it'll be my benching rig. So I need it to stay in tip top shape :D Not suicide runs, but I'll be pushing it harder as it'll not be my primary rig you get me?

    Both fans are blowing air towards the rear exhaust. Kind of a tight fit, had to remove the top 120mm fan...

    Wow, that HSF is a monster! And I though my GeminII was big :eek:
    Do you plan on OCing more now that you've been able to lower the temps?

    That's how I run here as well, with the ps3 thrown in for folding, just for good measure.

    So, I now have rig dedicated to TPU WCG/F@H. My work came through with an unexpected bonus, plus I was able to get this together pretty cheap. I picked up a Giggy UD4P with a bunch of bent pins for $30 and was able to get it going. Then got a 920 for $225, ram from Paulie for $100, already had hd, gpu, psu. Running the rc of W7 for now. Not enough to grab some pie, but a decent contribution to the team. Here is a screenie, notice my temps. It's on a shelf in my garage with about 56f ambient right now.

    Awesome! :toast: :toast:

    There goes my chance of being able to overtake you :( :ohwell:
    Sounds like I'm going to need to upgrade some more :D

    BTW, is that an 8800GT/8800GTS 512mb/9800GT(X)(+)? That's the same PPD I get on my OCed 8800GT

    8800GT with shaders at 1724. I did have 2 GTX260's but sold one and one died :( But I still like the 8800GT-GTS and GTS250's as performance per watt. I'm pulling 314w with this and I was over 400 with the 260. Plus I had to run the fan at 80% and it was loud as hell. With the 8800 I have an accelero and a low speed yate.

    That's the same shader speed I run on my 8800GT, and about the same PPD as well

    Okay CP, Noctua NH-D14 versus Mega Shadow.Let's test at stock (default) and run 5 passes of LinX and IntelBurn Test.
    Then we can choose an oc to test at.
    Sound like a plan?
    I would prefer not to have the rig not crunching for a long period of time though :)

    I REALLY want to see this. I'm running 2 Mega's right now, but I've been very close to buying a Noctua NH-D14. Let's see some results!! :D:twitch:

    What updating exactly are you talking about?

    .


    Thanks a lot bro, that was a heck of deal you got going there :toast: Thanks a lot for helping out dude :rockout:

    Sorry bro, I was out all day.

    Hammer, is your setup in an open case or in a closed case. let me know so I know to run it with side panel off or on. I am undervolted at stock as well. I can do a run like that and then you can undervolt as well. Default voltages might not be the same anyways for us. Let me know bro. We need to create a thread for this.

    My output was a bit lower today, I had some issues on the Q9400 that resulted in all 4 tasks being aborted :mad:
    Hopefully things are fixed now, we'll see tomorrow morning :ohwell:
