    Always looking for a white LED fan, would have donated a blue LED 140mm Azza in exchange :eek:

    Ah, well, haven't seen any of those. I had a couple green ones that I used in my last SLI build, but other than that the only color ones I've had are blue.

    My guess is I will have to go retail for one eventually, seems like no one wants to sell them.

    Moved "old faithful" to the Antec Nine Hundred I had lying around:

    Still need to work on cable management, but not to concerned at this point. Couldn't install the EK wb I got as one of the screws has no threads:(

    Hopefully can find one at Lowes or Home Depot...

    Alternatively, see if you can find a tap and die set at home depot and thread it yourself! Of course, you'll need a vice too.

    Might just have to post that screw on Failblog :roll:

    That caseless setup looks far nicer than the mess I have on my desk. But I'm just using a mobo tray from a 1997 IBM, so I guess I don't expect it to look nice

    Will do, thanks :)

    Top-1000 would be really cool, I figure that it should be possible at some point :toast: :toast:

    That's my opinion. My dad made top-1000 at one point with just ~5k PPD at the time. I figure that if I'm able to get up to ~10k PPD (should be possible within 9-12 months) then if I can maintain that, top-1000 should be easy. Maybe even w/ my current setup (not counting GM's setups)

    Like I said, nothing is impossible. Set your goals and go for it. Do that and you'll have anything you want in life. It's cool your dad crunched. :toast:

    Oh, he still does. But his PPD is down now, not quite sure why. His WCG name is mpresler. I learned about WCG through him, so I'm very greatful that he crunches. I've been trying to get him to join TPU's WCG team, but so far with no success

    IBM RTP (stats here)

    I have a cruncher down for now, the power cord for my laptop has died. My dad said he might have a spare, in which case it would be coming back on in about 5 hours, but if not it'll be a couple days. Just to let you guys know :eek:

    Hey, I was at school :p

    I used half of one of the spare cords for the X31 (part that goes from the brick to the wall) and then the other half of the cord from the T400 and now it'll charge :)

    Only lost ~3 hours of crunching time. Not bad IMO :)

    I was just like "Hmm, I wonder what part is bad? I think I have a spare cord for my X31. Let's see what I can do with it", and it worked. Much to my surprise, I expected the transformer to be dead.

    Speaking of the X31, it's been going strong for over 2 weeks with no signs of stopping:

    It just submitted about 2 days of work, it disconnected from the WiFi over the weekend and was on the last WU in it's buffer :eek:
