    With any luck I'll be installing WCG on a 3ghz C2D that does nothing but sit idle 24/7...I'm not sure if I'll be able to, but I'll see what I can do :)

    They never have a good reason for it, unless they are one of those people that leave their rig off 75% of the time. :shadedshu

    I'm afraid I might have to underclock soon or set WCG to a lower CPU usage %, with the temps here (85 F), my X4 955 is running at 57C, which is too hot for my tastes (I like to keep it under 55c at all times)

    Major power issues. Have to replace the entire breaker box. To prevent damage I am shutting down everything until the electrician finishes work (Sunday at the earliest). Bye bye production and a nice chunk of $!!

    Damn thats to bad. If I was closer to you I would come and do it for cost, and a few beers. Beer after the work of course. :) How much is that setting you back? The ones that I do usually run about $1500 or so complete.

    Better of dropping the clock than using less than full throttle.

    If only I lived a little further north :laugh: The electrician is a family friend so it's not going to be astronomical, but I will not know the final figure until tonight or tomorrow morning. I will expect the worst for the time being. I'll give an update with final cost after the work is done.

    I clocked my 2 965's back for today. Temps are up near 60c. In the evening and overnight I clock them back up. Not quite warm enough to warrant firing up the A/C yet. In the next few weeks that will change though. :toast:

    Well, I'm hoping to pick up an H50...I have $5 now, but as soon as my friend pays me back what he owes ($75), I'm picking up a H50...I've already agreed to write a review of it for W1zz

    CP, any reason you have your X4 965 clocked down to 3ghz?

    Trying to keep things cool and quiet in my room. At 3GHz I can basically run it passively if I wanted and room heats up a bit less. I7 is at 3.8GHz but at less voltage than stock so it's also running a bit cooler.
