    didn't help me much even with the i7 so i don't think it will help much but if you have it you might as well use it :D

    I'll have to find some way to mount things. Only fan spot in the case where I can mount a rad is a 120 on the back..and it's a single 120 there. How would I mount a double rad there? Screw a fan into the case (on the outside) and then the rad into the fan?

    I think I got it to work, anyhow let me know if you have one just in case. Thanks.

    That's Brandon's loop right?

    What's your question about?

    Yep :)
    He said he wants to downsize what's in his HTPC.
    It looks like as it is it's a bit better than my H50, but has far more room for expansion. And looks awesome.
    I probably would have gone for a different pump/block if I was building a custom loop (and a bigger rad), but it's a great deal IMO as a trade.

    You're WCing your X6 rig, right?

    Yeah, I'm not getting it until late August at the earliest, but I'm still excited :D

    And I'm being considered for an Editor position over at OCN :cool:

    Rad box FTW
    http://www.jab-tech.com/Swiftech-RadBox-MCB-120-Revision-2-Black-pr-3337.html
    you could get some really long M5 screws (not too long or will poke hole in the rad) and use 2 fans. one as a spacer and one as a fan to push air into it
    something like this

    mindweaver...........

    whats your current setup?

    i ran 3 sr2 rigs @ 4.4ghz full bore 100% load for 45hours and got 27.5k pts for me today and i see you avg about 26k ppd

    i just want to know what is comparable in more standard hardware.

    These projects are great fun and for a good cause and all, but don't get OCD about your ppd. there are always going to be people who have scores you just look and say WTF? But most of the time they're running it machines they don't actually own - sometimes legit, sometimes not (meaning with or w/o permission). I have no idea about Mind so this isn't directed at anyone in particular. And there are individuals that have their own farms with a dozen or more machines. The point is that you can't let it get to you because eventually you'll realize that it's race that never ends and that you're never going to win.

    Output is fun, but as long as I crunch I'm happy.

    CP how well does a X6 at same clocks as a i7 hold up?
    I could build a 1055T rig MUCH cheaper then a i7 rig so that means i maybe able to get it done sooner.

    Tim don't recall right now and I'm in bed already posting from the phone. Go to free dc and find me. Then look at my hosts and you'll see only two rigs putting out #'s. Those are the two :toast:

    @Tim

    Yeah, pretty much, just look at the average. I just downclocked the i7 to 3.6 GHz a day ago. Also keep in mind I game on my X6 so it sees downtime that a dedicated cruncher like the i7 doesn't see.

    @twilyth

    @CP it seems like the i7 is still alittle better but with the down time it's hard to tell for sure. But i think that the price difference is worth alittle less points. i could build a x6 rig for just alittle more then just a i7 cost.

    You can check my hosts out. I have a 1055T @4Ghz and a i7860 @3.4Ghz. I would get the 1055T over the i7 and just clock it to 4Ghz. The 1055T never goes over 37c with a Sunbeam core contact freezer. But if you plan on water cooling and not worried about the money. I would go i7 860 or 930 and set it to 4GHz.

    If you just plan to use air then 1055t. I like the temps a lot better than the 860 or 9xx. :toast:

    Yeah in my case the i7 still outperforms it in WCG, but it's not far behind bro :toast:

    Yeah that's true, much easier to keep cool.

    I just added 2 Scythe Slip Stream 120 Kaze-JYUNI 110cfm fans to my H50 push pull and a fan controller! :toast: I've got the Q9550 back at 3.8Ghz! :toast: Crunching strong!

    Hmm, not much less PPD but with a lot less heat. Maybe I should reconsider the i7's I had planned for X6's. Less heat and less noise would be much better.

    And some half/good news, I stuck my Q9550 onto sister's computer instead of her E6300. The good part is I'll now have 12 threads going instead of 10. Extra 1000PPD perhaps?

    The bad part is the £30 G31M-E2SL can only clock it to 3.48GHz. Although considering I could only get 320MHz more from the :banghead: unreliable :banghead: £120 Asus I'll be happy with that Gigabyte :D:respect:

    Same fans I ran on mine when I had them. Those fans just don't have good static pressure but they do flow some good air. :toast:

    Well according to HW Monitor my i7 draws less power since it's only running 1.188v as opposed to 1.358v that my X6 is running.

    And those extra two cores should be about another 1k PPD :toast:
