    Thing is the wall is too thick, I gotta check Lowes and see if they have some with thinner OD.

    A bit over 2/3 of the way to my Silver in C4CW, so I've added HCMD2 back in for a bit of variety :)

    I'm posting this here and at the F@H team thread as well, just need some advise.

    I don't know how I am going to do it, but I can't stop crunching or folding. I have a serious issue with heat in my room. Got both rigs crunching and folding, all in my signature. Downstairs it is 66ºF right now, up stairs in my room it is 81ºF. Thing is thermostat is downstairs and it cools it quick, however, up stairs it can be burning! Any ideas on how to limit this heat?

    NOTE: Both CPU's are running default clocks and undervolted, cards are running default clocks/voltages.

    Any chance you could develop a push/pull duct system going from the cold room to yours? If you have central air, try to see if you could get a fan in front the duct going to your room, and put a fan in front of the end of the duct that empties out into your room.

    do you have a window, or the possibility, to open 2 windows, so the wind can flow thru your room one way in and one way out?
    thats the emergency way to bring down temps for me.
    also, a running roomfan on the window directed in the way the wind goes, so you can increase push/pull effect, has proven to be very efficient. between closed windows without fan, and closed door and open windows with a fan are between 7-12c core temperature difference :)

    It'll be wayyyy too long. That's out of the question.

    Bro it's super hot and humid, opening a window will only make it hotter.

    Sucks here man and the air conditioning system is poorly designed where I live. There is no insulation, so even at night at that heat from the day is still trapped and the 2nd floor which is where my room is gets really really bad!

    I've got some bad news guys, seems my father is in the hospital. So my time at TPU for the next few days might be much, much, less.

    you thought about putting some of your rigs somewhere else? you could easily monitor them with a vpn tunnel, like radmin :)

    No idea. I got a call from two of his friends and they said he got in a ambulance this morning. I can't even find what hospital he's in. :(

    I hope everything is okay. It would've been nice if the friends at least told you what happened or where it happened so you didnt have to call every hospital in town.

    I know where it happened and SOME details. But only what they knew. It seems my dad might have taken an overdose of his meds in a attempt to take his own life. :(
