    ok, so my fellow dane mstenholm, who you all know i think, he gave me a server thingie, with 4 single core xeons with HT, they only run@ 2,7ghz, and there is no oc options in bios(surprise:eek:)

    he is a very nice guy, and very friendly imo.

    we had a little coffe, i saw where he lived and some of his rigs, very pleasant experience all in all :toast:

    and here it is , its approximate 80cm long, and 45cm wide, and 20cm tall
    and i do not lie, it weighs about 40kg, maybe 35, but holy moly its heavy :D:D

    Looks nice.

    Any idea on how long WCG snoozes when you tell it to snooze? I have to set it to snooze (or completely shut it down) when I play some specific games, but if I just tell it to snooze, it seems to come back on its own...
