    Got the CruncherX2 sold today to a family member, sadly he wouldn't crunch on it. It's okay thou since now I can build another PC with my soon to be old mobo/DDR2 and the Phenom 9750. Should be fun and I plan to keep it around if I can.
    KieX, Chicken Patty and mjkmike say thanks.

    I put the i7-950 back together. Apparently my memory is shit since I have it variously identified as either 930 or 950 and I think I've referred to it here as a 920. C'est la morte.

    Anyway, I had a Hydro 60 laying around so I slapped that on instead of the Tuniq tower that was on it and I'm going to oc the piss out of that sucker. I need a heater in my office so I'm going to use this instead. A tired joke, but no less true. :cool:

    It's running now but only at 2.8ghz. I can only do shit in fits and starts, so it will probably take at least a few days. Plus I have to be in court to kick some lawyer's ass in a couple of weeks. So I need to prepare - you know, raw eggs, jogging 5 miles before 5am . . . . wait . . . fuck, I'm getting confused again.

    'Yo, who's the fat bitch up on the platform? Oh, sorry your honor.'

    Anyway, once I know it's all set up I'll move it and set up as headless. My DVI KVM only has 2 ports. I have a 4 port but it's VGA only and I'm not going back - oooohhhhhh, no, no, no.

    This post made my day! :roll: :roll:

    Anyhow, yes, crunchers serve great as heaters. But I only have a 2600K, doesn't put out much heat. :(

    Those temps are all because of chicken patty! He gave me this cooler last year due to me needing one for a build and it still cools the hell out of some CPUs!

    Good coolers and PSU's tend to outlive everything else in the system (at least that's what I find). The megahalems I had from the i7 920 days are beautifully overkill for sandybridge now, will probably keep them through the Ivy Bridge updates :laugh: But yeah those temps are more or less what I've had at idle on almost every single Intel I've owned since the Q9550 days :ohwell:

    Props to Chicken Patty for always helping out :rockout:
