    Okay here is a question for ya:
    Why the hell did you have your cell phone in the shower with you? I assume that was what you meant when you stated "I dropped mine while I was taking a shower and it's dead."
    Just curious:laugh:

    See your i7 and rise with 4 dual Xeon HT in one rig (old server). It might be a hassle to get it to work but if it does I will have PIE ;)

    Between the spilling water in a closed case and this, I'm starting to think you may need to stay away from water. Either that or you're developing a water based superpower and haven't got control of it yet.

    A buddy simply puked in the inward sucking cooling fans of his rig. that did the trick for him,shorted his board to death :laugh:
    maybe one of POS heatpipes went leak, and lost its content (water probably,with additives)
    :eek:


    some people claim other things! you probably got a charm enchantment then:D

    I can be stupid sometimes. With all the bad luck i have been having with water i still left a bottle of water WITHOUT the cap on the edge of my desk right above the 140mm fan on the 300 (AKA the i7 rig) that would have been a epic fail...I could deal with killing one of the duals or even the Phenom I but i think i would kill myself for killing a i7

    thats great. I am thinking of selling mine :wtf: but my dad(he doesn't give a shit what i do with my rigs 99% of the time) told me that it would be stupid of me to sell it and that he won't help me at all (not even send the stuff out). He was really impressed with it when he was using it and i even had Prototype,WCG and F@H(GPU) running in the background. i do got to say it does do great and is hard to slow down
