    I want to keep my job :laugh:

    Naw, Install should be about 30, then let's say about 30 more for installing updated drivers and the necessary software. I'll be good.

    Bad news. I am forced to sell my Xeon 3220 rig as I need some money:( I will give crunchers breaks on what I can.
    I am going to try and keep my three i7 rigs though:) I just broke the top ten for our team, but I doubt that will last long.

    I was very close to selling stuff, but by the time I get the paypal transfer to my account I would have gotten paid already so not worth it. GOod luck and hope you can get your things sorted out soon. :toast;

    On my Q9550 I liked to keep temps down below 60, but I have seen people well into the 70s on 24/7 OC.

    Yeah it is a lot of posts. Girlfriend? meh, the right one will come eventually. In the meantime I got my hookups. :laugh:

    Well these maxed out at 62ºc during the last two weeks or so according to real temp, that was the absolute max the whole time it was up and running. It should be fine. Thanks.

    I am bro. The efforts of getting my friend to start crunching with two quads again, a couple of PM's and even some outside of TPU PM's that didn't go to well, I couldn't let these efforts be ruined because I was down a rig. I can go to sleep in peace now. Both rigs up and running, #'s on the QX will be down a bit as the work was lost, but still less damage than if I left it off till tomorrow after work. Good night ladies and gents, Captain is outta this one. :toast:

    Wow, either they validated alot of pending WU's or that triple core that I recently added has had a bigger effect then I expected.
