    Thanks!
    I'm almost certain he'll have no issue with it, but I'm not going to get my hopes up (and I can always get whatever he doesn't get)

    oh jesus christ, you'll gonna lose your captain if you'll don't talk him outta learning the "Melbourne Shuffle" Oh god, what a work out lol. Maybe is because I'm a fat cow that is out of shape.

    Anyhow, I was wondering, who had some spare parts laying around to build a cruncher? Reason? Well I will soon have a mobo and CPU free and I would put it up for a contest. I even have some DDR3 RAM to throw in. We'll need a cooler/PSU/HDD to get it going. Anybody got anything to pitch in? If we can finish the rig I guess it's just planning from there on. I got a little something for this contest though so let me know guys.

    What mobo/CPU?

    Once I get my i7 and depending on how well the X4 955 stuff sells, I may put some of it up. At 3.6ghz it's good for ~2400-2500 PPD, depending on WUs

    Other than that, I'm completely out of spare hardware, I gave away the spare HDD, PSU, and RAM I had to my friend building a Q9400 rig (w/ my old Q9400 + Zotac mobo). I could probably freebie one of my copies of XP Pro to a cruncher

    Cool, that rig should do 2k+ easy with a mild OC! What are you replacing the UD5 with? Another i7 :laugh:

    A rig Paulie helped me purchase. He's a heck of a individual, this guy deserves all the help he needs if he ever needs it. I would do anything for him with my eyes closed. And no gay thinking guys :shadedshu

    That's awesome, I take it you're planning to OC? Maybe ~3.8k PPD from it at 4ghz?

    Let's have a round of applause for Paulieg! :toast::toast::toast::toast::toast:

    As I said in PM, I'm not sure what I'll be able to donate, but I'll crunch to the fullest extent possible.

    I am sorry but I need to scale down a bit for this summer. I have been running 5 i7 920's for a couple months now but need to seed that money else where at this time. If anyone is interested here is my FS thread:

    I will ramp-up again this coming winter; but for right now I need to scale back as I want to spend the extra money (electric bills) on trying to catch some world trophy rainbow trout with a fly rod:)
