    Well, here goes nothing :laugh:

    Are these temps okay? I heard these CPU's can go up to about 80ºc safely, is this true?

    Looking good there. Max temps I've seen were high 75C+ during summer so yeah, that's safe to crunch on :toast:

    Never explored the 4.8GHz+ so yeah you got room to experiment. Crunching wise, 4.5/4.6 is the sweetspot of PPD/Watt

    I'll probably try higher and see, would be good for like a competition or something like that, but other than that I think 4.5 GHz is where it is staying.

    Out of curiosity, who is Munkhtur? He joined the team yesterday, and according to Free-DC, has nearly 17 million points, of which a bit over a million are WCG. Didn't see anything in the team member welcome thread, so I thought I'd mention it here.

    Seen him around here on TPU a lot, or at least someone with a similar user name, didn't see him join. Missed it.

    I can't find that username, but I swear there's someone on here by that username.


    On another note, these K's are beasts!!! Mine pumped out 5,883 points today alone. The one in the middle is the 2600K as well, but the old Windows install that I had for about two days. The last #'s are from the 1090T. I want to see what the 2600K will do now at 4.5 GHz. :)

    Found out today I might get a bonus with the next paycheck. Maybe I'll be able to keep the CruncherX2 after all?

    I still have tons of plans for Lauren's and I's computers. We'll see what happens next month after I get paid.

    CP I see you have 3 stars now! :rockout:

    That's awesome Randal, would be great if you could keep it. :)

    ...and yes, I do. I should end up with four once my average catches up. My goal is five though. :)

    What's your OC at on the 2600K? I've only gotten to mess with the low end Sandy bridge stuff at work and I'm dying to get a 2600K....

    Looking good CP.

    What did you end up mounting the Hyper 212+ to? The X6? Pent D?

    The X6. Running at 3.8 GHz, 1.408v, temps are around 48ºc.

    These are the temps on the 2600K, very good temps. :)

    The Hyper 212+ is a great cooler. I'm keeping mine around just in case. It has to be my fav bang for buck cooler.

    Yes dude, for $25 it is the best money you can spend on cooling solution. Not only that, but a good cooling solution. It's not the cooler itself neither. For $25 you get pretty much mounting hardware for any platform, the screws/brackets for another fan and all. Can't beat that.


    Speaking of the X6, it'll probably be sold soon, going to replace it with another 2600K most likely. That should hopefully be good for about 12k to get me the fifth star. :)
