    I ran something like that for a short time. Are you going to cut the window glass and mount it?

    No, I plan on just opening the window enough to fit it and then covering the extra space up with plywood or something. What would you recommend for that?

    Don't use plywood. If it rains, the wood may come apart because of the glue.

    Move to Denmark. There we crunch and fold to keep us warm in the winter time. Or, if you for some reason decide to stay in Florida I would suggest a acrylic 5-7 mm plate to fill the entire window opening. That is not recommended at ground level, in a bad area, and when you are not home ;)

    Good point!

    my room is in the 2nd floor, so that wouldn't really be an issue.

    Home depot has that?

    I have a new Lowes close to my house, I gotta pass by when I'm ready to do this. Thanks for the suggestion.

    I was wanting to do the same thing for my crunching rigs, only I would be having the cold air from outside going into the intake fan!

    I just happened to look at my runtime today and saw this :D
    [​IMG]

    I've replaced my 5k BE with my Athlon II X3. It's currently crunching away at 3.3Ghz on 3 cores at stock voltage :rockout:. The 4th core is magically unstable for some reason now so I can only use 3 :(.

    they are not bad at all the C0's mine did 4.0 24/7 on a Noctua NH-U12P cooler, but they tend to get a bit hotter than the D0 version, but still a very powerfull cpu.

    and got my first wcg points today:rockout: nearly 7k, i know its not much but im happy :roll:
    i can even play while it crunches,

    I was looking around my BIOS and found the Save and Load Profiles option that I thought was missing :eek:, now to experiment on a 200 BCLK. Just have to move some of my excess hardware first :D
