    Well, I had about 3 hours of downtime on the i7 earlier, but it's back up now. Good news is that I cleaned the dust out of the H50 and temps are down from the mid 70s to lower 60s :D

    And I now have both GPUs folding :)

    I remember when I cleaned the coolers in my rigs a while back. Saw a total of like 40ºc lower between both rigs :roll:

    Wow. There was a ton of dust in the H50....far more than I would think would be possible after ~3 months of use. Very glad that I cleaned it out...much nicer temps!

    My house is like a dust farm. Two weeks ago I cleaned my rad on the 2nd rig, and now you can't see the core :(

    Well guys I have some annoying news...

    I'm currently sick as heck and I'm unsure how much crunching the X4 and X2 will be doing over the next few days, until I recover at least.

    Sore throat, runny noise, sinus infection, and coughing. Oh and that total general feeling of crap.

    its highly infective, once i had it, i started infecting all people around me, to different grades tho...it doesnt look like its highly airborne, but i think its very easy to spread over drip infection...meaning drinking the same drink, get coughed/sneezed on, kisses and so on

    Well, I had it under my desk, which didn't exactly help. Now on top of the desk (see pics below)
    Sorry to hear that :(

    Changed my caseless setup a bit:

    I have it in a more stable position (horizontal vs vertical) and it's better set up for when I'll have 3 GPUs in there. H50 rad is surprisingly stable.

    all of the sickness talk.
    It's going around in this area too.

    my rig was down for awhile this weekend. I came home to find both of my Yate loons on my CPU heatsink dead and a black screen saying "CPU fan error 1" :banghead: :banghead::banghead::banghead::banghead:
    some how i need to pull some fans out of my ass. I am now using my spare fans that i was going to use for the other rig i am building(waiting on ram and CPU). atleast the i7 isn't down any more.

    also i got another new gf the other one pissed me off so she got replaced. I'm not going to fuck around and get stuck in a bad relationship again :laugh:

    I've found that life can be easier without a significant other. No GF yet, gives me more time to tinker with stuff and more money to spend on PC hardware :laugh:

    Sorry to hear about both of those :(

    Sorry to hear about both of those :([/QUOTE]

    I find that so true but i tend to be one of those people that has to always be with someone.

    to stay somewhat on topic i am going to try and oil the fans up when i have time and see if it brings them back to life. I don't think i oiled them very good when i put them back together after painting the blades. this time i will take my time.

    Onedub did you happen to send the ram out yet?

    BLK you manage to get the CPU sent yet?

    and thanks again to both of you guys for helping me out :toast:


    @MJK get with it then ;) you can worry about going to hell later(like when you get there :laugh:)
    i found out today my new gf is bi so that means a 3-way wouldn't be much of a problem ;)

    yes that would be the one. going to use it as a dual for awhile till i can get a board to unlock it.

    thank you. things happen bro hope everything is cool now.
    The only thing i need now would be 120mm fans since my yates died.

    Would a 140 work? I think I have a XION 140mm somewhere that I'm not using

    i could replace the tricool that is in the front of my case with a 140(it fits 120 and 140 in the front) then i could use the tricool in the other build. So yes it would work but if it makes alot of noise or has LEDs then no thanks

    btw i am already running a 140mm CM in the front so having 2 140's would be kinda nice.

    Oh Tim...:)
    Real Love does not work like you think it does. (no offense, thats an experience thing... hell, i made enough errors myself regarding that:laugh:)

    If there is not one Girl, thats haunting your dreams, that you cant forget, and that keeps sneaking into your mind and your thoughts... well then, no Realationship you ever had, was more than a Crush...:eek:

    The things you state, they sound so much like my not-anymore-girlfriend, and your actings seem to be very similar, also. She probably has BPD, and i needed 6 years to get to know that... she never told me, she probably didnt even knew. She knew there was something wrong with her. Just not, what.:ohwell:

    I can tell you, if you dont know someone has BPD, you wont notice... they seem totally normal, just that in Friendships or Relations these People tend to drop out when they see their personal level is reached... then they seem totally egoistic,even egocentric and dead ignorant to outstanders, but in the belief of these People there saving themself! (sadly thats naturally plain wrong.. there are very,very few which can help themselves, they tend to worsen their life, by doing what they think is right and will help them, and then blame others for it,when they fail. They can even make things up,or tune facts, just not to feel bad about something. It can be treated fairly easily but there are millions that are undetected, and that will never realise their problem.
    Getting a feeling of sheer unwellness and fear, when no one is around, or when youre single, seems normal to them.
    at least, thats what i was able to determine thru my life with about 50% mentally damaged people;)

    i hope you dont feel attacked or patronized, but i felt i can kinda tell you a few things, about stuff that would interest you too :)
