    I will be replacing my x2 later down the road with another six core, welcome to the all x6 club :laugh:

    I am just adding and adding, and the heat gets worse by the day, I'm effin' nuts!

    Yeah I know, I meant GPU folding and having to use an 8k series or newer NV GPU in order to be effective. If one were to fold on some CPU's, how many points would you need to get a folding badge?

    How's my sig looking? :D

    Last rig will be up tomorrow, getting late and I need to install windows and stuff, I'll do it tomorrow with time.

    Here are some pics of the 3rd rig and last 8800 for folding. Ready to go:

    That looks awesome CP!
    I love that tech bench! And those Zalman coolers!

    It'll be especially sweet with another X6 :D

    And I spy another slot for another folding card :D

    Is the GX2 folding yet?

    @ CP Love that MB I have one myself with a 1055t and a 5870 it's my main rig. going to flash the bios from f8h to f8k soon and then try for better overclock, I hope f8k is better than f8h because I hate that beta.

    let me get out the old 40 or 60gb (don't remember what it is) and if it works i will send it to you for the cost of a small flat rate box(like 5 bucks)

    Well, I've been offered a (minimalist) custom loop as a straight trade for my H50, so I think my i7 will be seeing water shortly.
    This is what it looks like ATM:

    If I get it, I'll probably replace the rad with a 240. Any suggestions POS?

    Cheap is nice :)

    I'll probably get the MCR220-QP because I've heard good things about swiftech. Any suggestions for a res? Which one do you have?

    a cheap good res and the once i have is the Swiftech micro res v2
    http://www.jab-tech.com/Swiftech-MCRES-Micro-Rev-2-pr-4312.html

    here is a nice one if you have a floppy drive bay
    http://www.crazypc.com/products/bitspower-350-reservoir-93301BK.html

    the thing about a res is you can pick almost any res that you like and still work fine. aslong as they don't have anything that reduces the flow or size to a smaller size then it shouldn't hurt temps at all.

    as for the Swiftech MCR220 it cooled my i7 all on it's own before and temps weren't bad.
    I also would recommend some Yate loon medium speed fans for the rad if you get it. There quiet and cheap also move a fair amount of air.There isn't any need for the 38mm fans with the low FPI of the mcr220

    yate loons i was talking about http://www.xoxide.com/yate-loon-mediumspeed-120.html

    No FDD bay, that's where I keep the HDD (HDD cage removed)

    Looks like I'm going to get this kit and then instantly need to invest another $70 in it :shadedshu
    Still a pretty good deal I guess :eek:
    Do you think that pump is powerful enough to run both rads? And do you think it would help any?

    Nice :)
    So do you think the 2nd rad would help much?
    Go to the appropriate sub-forum for your question, and click on "new thread" :)

    If you want to try WCG (and I'd appreciate it if you did), check out the link in my sig :)
