    Look up. Look way up.
    I remember once going through de la Verendrye National Park while on a trip to Val D'or in northern Quebec. Halfway through the Park of nothingness is a Shell station equipped for 18 wheeler cab repair. Needless to say the repair bay is HUGE to lift those cabs.

    We stopped and turns out the owner is a hunter and he bagged himself a moose. My first time seeing one up close. It was hung from the ceiling of the truck repair bay and it's rear end was still about only 2 feet off the floor. it's back legs were on the floor. It's tongue was sticking out and was as long as my arm!!!!! :eek:

    Well, back to crunching! :rockout:

    Nice! You going 1366 or 1156? I have to say this new i7 860 is kick ass! Of course it may have a lot to do with the new SATA 3 drive too. But as much as I like the 860... I got to say I really like the 1055T just as much or a little better. I've got the 860 @ 3.3GHz and it's around 65c with a zalman 120 push. It's almost a push pull because there's only about a .5" gap between the cooler and the exhaust fan.. lol The 1055T is @ 4.49GHz and it's not gone past 39c with a Sunbeam contact freezer! I'm really stunned at how well it stays cool (I keep my server room at 69f). I'm sure the chip is running hotter than that.. I figure if it says 39c it probably really 49c, but still that's kickass @ 4GHz.. :rockout:

    The 1055T crunched around 5800 points yesterday for Stanley! :rockout: Well I'm going to get on the treadmill before I talk myself out of it... :roll:

    I'd like to move to Alaska for the weather.

    Seriously... I like the cold. Anything over 70* is too hot for me.

    I will have the X2 240 back up on saturday sometime, I finally came into spare funds towards a PSU. Also my 6 core setup is on hold atm due to unforseen pregnancy and the cost that go with it. I may look into just getting the 6 core and putting it in the Asrock mobo (it supports it w/ bios update WOOT) till i can get enuff for the rest of the system.

    Me too. I hate heat, and my damn AC isn't working. Gotta call the an HVAC repair man. So much for my i7 ram, AGAIN. Seriously, I might as well sell the stuff. Every time I think I have enough to get ram, something comes up. :(

    Oh man that sucks! My air went out last summer in july! It took the repair man 2 days to finally figure out what was wrong with it.. It was a switch that put it in heating or air.. Luck it was only 70 bucks for the switch, but I let the guy fully service it and it was around 220 total.. So, good luck man! :toast: hope it's something simple. :toast:

    I had both of my rigs off for about 3 or 4 hours today. I took them over to my buddies house to get them dusted and cleaned. Seeing about a 10ºc drop on my AMD rig with my fans on low :eek:

    However, the only downside of this is that the HDD on my i7 slid out from the bench tray and fell down my stairs, now the rig doesn't boot, HDD is not turning on I guess. I'll take a look at this when I have some time and if not I'll go ahead and reinstall windows on a IDE drive I have laying around. I'll keep you guys posted.

    With the rigs off, if you looked through the fan into the cooler dead on, you would not be able to see any fins on the HS. There was a thick layer covering the HS. I'll put it to you this way, with the rig running and the fan at 100% if you put your hand behind the HS you would not feel any air going through. If you put your hands on the side or on the top you would feel it. It was actually getting blocked and the air was being forced out the sides :eek:
