    Well I've seen that most can hit ~4-4.2ghz w/ a good board and cooler, and that should be a tad over 4k ;)

    Even a H50 should be fine...they're still very capable coolers. I've heard that OCed the X6s do draw more power than i7s, but it still should be fine :)

    Yeah...unfortunately, because of the size of the case, it would mean I could only do push or pull and not push/pull. I wonder if it would still be better than a H50

    there was someone that tested that and it was almost dead on with the h50 with only 1 fan so i wouldn't bother.

    Why not put a fan on the outside and one on the inside?

    i think it had something to do with the static pressure needed just couldn't be provided with only 1 fan. If i could find the source again i would be happy to post it up for you guys but i'm not having any luck.

    I think I remembers seeing that...and it makes sense, because a 50mm thick rad is a lot for any single fan (except, maybe, a Delta).

    Guys,

    Have any of you heard from Paul (Paulieg)? He's been gone from posting for a while. I left a comment on his Facebook but he never answered. Just want to make sure it's all ok for him you know.

    He has posted recently in Barbaric's PSU WTB thread. He mentioned he has been swamped with family, graduate school, work, and some powerlifting events he had coming up.

    No problem. I hadn't been seeing him around the BST lately either, but then there he was.

    Ion it seems that i am pulling ahead of you slightly but tomorrow you get a break. I have to turn my i7 off because we are going to be fogging in here to git rid of the winter bugs and spraying a bug barrier to help prevent them. So i have to cover the rig up and i don't think it would like me very well if i was to block all cool air from it.

    I have a hard choice to make... Buy a better GPU for folding(something like a gtx260 216 or a gts450,something like that) OR buy a quad core CPU(low end phenom II or Athlon II)

    if i go with the CPU it would leave me another board to add another GPU to later. I'm still OK with my old 8800GTS (i don't game much) but i really want more crunching power.

    Pulling ahead? Nooooooooooooo :shadedshu :(

    I don't see how that's possible, I have my i7 going basically 24/7, the C2D, the CD, the PentM, and the P4HT :wtf:

    I passed 3k WUs in C4CW with the last update :toast:

    I decided to finally jump into the action after reading up. I'm excited to help crunch for a change instead of just browsing the internet/gaming.

    I'm starting off slow so my parents don't get slobberknocked with an energy bill that's much higher than normal, so I'll only be crunching main rig about 7 hr a day, while the lappy will be on 24/7 (if it can manage it).

    Edit: Decided to crunch for longer as I think seven hours is too limited. Stepping up crunching time to 15 hours a day on the main rig.
