    Great job Stiven, I'm looking for drivers for my 2nd rig right now. It's nowhere near a 2600k, but it's another two cores at least. :)

    F150 is switching over a rig too, so he'll be putting up some decent #'s.

    just got back on the crunching bandwagon, about how much extra would it cost me a month running an X58 rig as well ?

    it varies depending on overclock,psu,electric cost,etc
    But for me it cost about $50 to run a i7 920@3.5ghz being powered by a 80+ bronze PSU with a 8800GT. I was also folding so that plays into it as well. I would say ~$20-$30 if you don't fold as well

    We got your back, get better, take care of your issues, you'll have a spot when you are good to go again my friend. :)

    Depends I guess where you live, I ran three rigs at one point with one of them being an i7, and it was about $40 bucks with two rigs folding.

    I have seen pictures of them but never seen them in real life - thats a STOCK cooler :eek:

    My 2720QM has been delivered today. Wife didn't like the look and felt it was all to heavy (2 kg). Well, she just got an IPAD2 so I guess everything else is heavy and ugly. It will not crunch before the 24th. Sorry.

    Well, here's another 2600K for the team. Money was tight, so scavenged old parts from the closet, tore apart an external drive and shared RAM sticks as well as using stock cooler for now. It ain't pretty but it crunches :rockout:

    I didn't get to set up my work PC today, I'll hopefully get it up tomorrow morning, Wednesday at the latest. When I do I'll make sure to get it running with WCG. :rockout:

    Did I mention it's a C2Q? I'm unsure of the clock speed, etc. But it's basically my PC to use and such. So if I can get my uncle convinced on WCG, he might install/have me install it on all the work PCs. Which is a wide array of desktops from C2Ds to i7s. :D
