    Bah. Looks like it's just not possible. Tonight, the power to the whole appartment went out for about half a minute. I figure the power strain of running 5 computers (3 in my specs, plus my mom's computer and the new one I built for my aunt) was too much for it to handle.

    If I told u.. I'd have to kill u
    Hope no damage was done. The 5 systems shouldnt be drawing enough to loose power. Is it an old building? Old electrical pannel and service?

    It is all about the crunching power of an i7:toast:
    I am sure gaming on a AMD rig is about the same, but we are crunchers as well as gamers...

    Could you turn off the Athlon XP and run the other computer instead? Should give ~2x the PPD ;)

    Nope. The Athlon XP does more than just crunching. I need it to be on.

    Well, in that case, I guess it makes the most sense to leave it on. What else do you use if for?

    Well, I got something that may help with my network that seems to be ever growing with new crunchers. (I'm need a hard drive for #3 and it'll be up and running! :D)

    [​IMG]

    Got them both for $9.99 at my local goodwill.

    Here's some links to what I have at netgear's website.

    Router

    PCI card

    I dont know if its a WGC thing that is taking out networking equipment. Strange we are running into problems. I lost a belkin wireless card lastnight. :shadedshu Have a back up so its not a real problem. Ive never lost or had any network problems in the past. Maybe with the oc's and the pressure we are putting on our rigs is taking out the weakest links? Ive lost a router and now a wireless card. They are cheap though, going to stock up with a few extra cards and an extra router, just in case. :toast:

    I've never had a wireless card fail, but routers seem to go out about every year around my house. They are just manufactured with cheap parts and just don't last.

    I actually invested in a cisco AP that i managed to get cheap - and an old pix 501 router - works great, and hopefully the stuff won't die anytime soon ;)

    My other WRT54G failed about this time last year, and during the summer months I lost my Linksys 54g USB adapter. I agree some routers just are not meant to last, and I chalk the USB adapters death to the heat.

    Hm... power went out today and it gave me plenty of time to lap my new AII x2 240. Load temp is now 23-25c instead of 30-32c.
