    remember that those lanbox's get VERY hot, see if you can find something else with better cooling, maybe a used rogue or something like that

    I want something small and easy to move around if i want to take it to a friends house or something. The reason for the i3 is because they are one of the cooler running Intel chips on that socket and i wouldn't be going for any high clocks or anything. BTW i spilled water in one of my crunchers it didn't seem to have got on anything but i took power away from it as soon as it happened and have it drying out with a fan blowing on it. I will give it a try in the morning i really hope it didn't get on anything but the fan and bottom of the case. I can deal with that.

    I have been using it on one rig the past week and it seems stable. It has a nice feature - it report and send right after completion.

    I felt the urge to share some good news with the team.

    I have been offered a job, waiting for contract and got another really good job pending. So in another month or so I should have an i7 crunching with all it's HyperThreading goodliness :)

    If all goes to plan, I may just get the i7 early on my debit card (interest free) and pay it back with the first wage. I've been lusting to have one for ages

    I'd say wait a little more and save for the 6core AMDs, that extra time should also solve the extra cost

    Well, finally have a i5 750 sitting on the shelf, awaiting an EVGA P55 LE and 4gb of TEAM Xtreem PC3-15000. Hopefully that will be next week's project.:D

    Encouraging to see new rigs with good PPD's being added all the time. Nice to see from the Milestones thread that we get new members all the time too.

    I cant wait. I'm like a kid waiting for Santa. :) Im getting ready to start building my new shop (man cave). The kids and GF have taken over the house, I have just one bedroom for all my stuff. :( Going to build a 20'x20' fully finished shop/tech room. I need somewhere to put all my comp gear and gun collections. Will start a "project log" when I get started. Half the building will be for my collection and ammo, the other half will be for all my systems. TPU is going to help me design the puter setup. :rockout: Just starting to draw up the plans so I can submit it to the city for approval.
