    I typically don't like to leave things on when I'm gone for more than 2 days, but I'm glad that you do :D

    I really see no end in sight to my horrible PPD, but I'll keep doing what I can do

    The way I look at it is that I leave my home at 8am everyday or so, come back at 6pm or so, rigs are left unmonitored anyways so screw it!

    I wish I could go on a short vacation:(
    I coach a high school girl's volleyball team (will be my fourth year) and the season started last week. So now I work 40 hours a week at my state job plus I spend about 25 hours a week coaching until November. Then I will help coach our local area girls club volleyball team until April of next year. Then I will take a vacation:)

    Have fun Mindweaver (if you go):toast::toast::toast:

    I'm a bit worried about leaving my system OCed unattended that long. But I guess it could just go back to stock or down a couple hundred mhz while I'm gone :eek:

    I'm WCed as well, but if my H50 leaks, Corsair will cover everything it damages under warranty :cool:
    Probably the best idea...and it's not like it's hard to OC again, disable turbo, up the blck to 182, and up the vcore to 1.29 and I'm done

    Didn't know that, time to investigate :eek:

    Still not like it's time-consuming just to re-OC...more so to OC the GPUs actually
    TY!

    That's a good idea. Although, 3.8ghz is rock stable for me, so I need nothing lower :p (at least normally)
    What's your Home Server going to be?

    Except for that there isn't anything more to do to eek more points out of your system. Only changing WCG.org my Projects to do the projects with an higher credit reward.
