    You guys have been going at it for a while now :toast: Good crunching guys.

    VW, what happened, why did you output drop so low? You were having internet problems right?

    That would be awesome, I need some more friendly rivals! Only ~200k more points to go and you'll overtake me :p
    VW was a great rival, but something has happened recently :confused::confused:

    Well, my QX Cruncher has developed instability. First it was rebooting, now it is hard locking. Unfortunately I won't have time now to check it as I have to go to work in just a few minutes.


    Nevermind, I figured it out I think. I had set it at stock clocks at 400*7.5 = 3GHz. It is supposed to be 333*9=3Ghz. So I was running a higher FSB with everything at defaults causing it to be unstable I suppose. It's set up correctly now, let's see if the problem continues :toast:

    Great to have you back Stanhemi. Really glad you're out of the hospital. Sorry about your condition. Sounds pretty grim. But as HammerON said, it could be a good time to make some healthy adjustments - "turn crisis into opportunity". We all you wish you the best, now and in the future.

    I was scared when I heard the doctor talk about cancer, but fortunately the very first test showed a problem with the thyroid gland.

    I want to crunshe 5x more stronger now :rockout::rockout:

    thanks for your messages :toast: :toast:

    Nice to have you back and sorry to hear about your condition bro. I'm glad it's something that can be dealt and contained as long as you do what you need to do.

    My fiancee's mother has an inactive Thyroid. It's not as bad as it seems, stanhemi, and is easily controlled with the medication.
    stanhemi and Chicken Patty say thanks.

    How many of you P55 owners have the Foxconn socket? Any issues?

    My new P55 SLI has a foxconn socket. I read that the socket issue has been fixed and it was not an issue if you weren't OC heavy, but still want to know. I think I can return it and get another one and check it out, but its a 40min drive one way.

    Also, is there a way to determine the manufacture date of my EVGA board by the serial?

    It only affects people that have an insane OC. I have a P55-UD4P and P55-UD5 and have none those issues.

    Probably not, I think it's for more like 4.5ghz+. Anandtech has a good article on socket burning, I would suggest you read it ;)
