    I maybe in the market for a 2600K soon, IF anyone has an extra chip laying around I may trade you my sig combo (with maybe 2GB stick depending on chip im offered) for your bare 2600K chip.

    My wife is picking me up a ASROCK Pro3-M Z68 board!


    My Low voltage clocking I7 920 would make someone a GOOD cruncher!

    January/February I may need to scale down my farm. If so there will be a few 2600K's going round for a nice price.

    EDIT: Depends on a lot things, mainly whether I pass my work probation or not at the end of December... then how much a new place is gonna cost me. 2012 is going to be a rocky ride.

    Got the CruncherX2 into a case today, which seems to have improved temps. o.0 I think where I was keeping the tech bench prevented warm air from escaping properly.

    Anyways, until I get a better cooler for it will only be crunching at 80%

    Well if you do end up parting out that rig Brandon I would be very interested in the x58 i7 920:rockout:

    Or I am looking for a x58 i7 of some sort very, very soon if anyone has an extra they wish to sell.

    Good luck dude. You're probably safe though right? I don't know how it is where you are, but generally they can you before the end of your probation if they don't like you. :toast:

    One thing I've learnt about business is that you should assume nothing and prepare for everything. Perhaps I'm being overly cautious but rather that than find myself stuck in a rut for not planning ahead properly. :)

    If you don't find someone willing to do a trade, you could part the mobo, chip, and ram out for enough to grab a 2600 though. Just a thought.

    I think it will be kind of tough to find someone that wants to basically downgrade. Of course there may be a few that have extra 2600's around and would like to get a full combo.
    Good luck none the less man.


    Edit: Hey Brandon, check with Audituner man. I just seen that he has a 2600 for sale man. http://www.techpowerup.com/forums/showthread.php?t=155872

    I dont expect anyone to downgrade, I know alot of these benchers have a handfull of chips that would love to trade just bare chip for a X58 combo (CPU, Motherboard, 1 stick ram)

    Hi Peeps. I just joined your team yesterday. I hope you guys have room for one more wcg cruncher. My old team just sort of imploded a few months ago, granted it was a small team, but it just didn't seem to be any fun with me being the only cruncher that was still crunching wcg. ....... so.. Hello :toast:

    I'll have to admit, I saw the little blurp about TPU on the stats page at Free DC (a stats site I use) and after that I did lurk on your forum for a few days before I decided to join up with you guys. It seems so strange to see crunchers interacting with each other. My old team only chatted on AO...hell IM ....;) Ithink I could be happy here.:D
