    Just ran out and grabbed a cheap board from a guy on craigslist. The chip is fine. Looks like the board was the only casualty. Now I gotta sell it to pay for the 2600K I just bought. More crunching power!!

    You should really think about putting that awesome 2600K in front of a battery back up to keep from frying any other boards. Especially if your area is prone to power outages during storms.

    Tripp-lite has good offerings. We prefer to use them at work, although sometimes we use APC's units. (Although they seem to use crap batteries compared to Tripp-lite)

    Damn!
    I've been traveleing for a few days and got home to a 2600K that had stopped, "No Boot device found" on the screen. One reboot and it's running fine again, upped ther vcore a notch and hope that's enough.

    I have a APC Rack mount UPS :) This thing would handle 1200W I believe. Got it from one of our server rooms here at work that wasn't needed anymore. I would set it up but my PC is in the living room and my wife would not like this ugly large UPS in here HAHA

    I would sell the one I have since I pretty much have no use for it but new they are pretty expensive and this one is very heavy so shipping would kill. I will try to search for the model number

    Found a good deal on a 2600k. Should be on the way by tomorrow. Looks like I may be pushing for some pie soon. ;)

    I should hopefully have another 2600K running in the next two months max. Taxes coming soon and all that good stuff so we'll see. Still only good for like 11-12k max. Damn, we've step it up a lot, that won't get me far up the stats. :(

    Okay, Bogmali said he'd be shipping the Silverstone case today. I'm pretty excited to get this HTPC/Cruncher completed. It's nice having some many crunchers right now. Between the C2Q at work, my 1055T, the Laptop(C2D), Lauren's X4 945 and the X4 9750 from the HTPC I have 20 cores crunching away. :D

    I'm currently heating my room with WCG. I'm not sure if I'm saving money doing it this way, but atleast I'm helping something :3

    That's a lot of money for a 1000VA. Also, if you're running even a 400watt PSU, depending on the actual draw, that barely enough for 2 rigs. My i7-950 at 4Ghz draws nearly 300 watts on a 500watt PSU. So this would barely handle 2. And don't forget that you also have to run at least one monitor if you want to be able to shut things down manually rather than rely on the UPS software.

    The normal price for a 1000VA UPS is around $150. I recently got this cyberpower 1500va/900w for $160

    Thanks Kevinheraiz. That 955 crunched with me from day one.:)

    825,347 under my name, lots more under Stan's, and it helped a few other members. Glad to see it crunch again.:toast::toast::toast:

    Woah, I'm only at a measly 7000 :(. How many years have you been crunching for?

    Number 43 in Canada and kicking ass.:laugh:

    I'm down three rigs to help with the power bills, also gave away a amd 64x2 5600, i7 2600k, and the parts I gave you.

    Hope you find a better cooler. I have a few but it would be cheaper to find something near you this time.:)

    Awesome! I can't believe you gave away that much tech, that's close to $500 in parts! I couldn't take anything from you anyway, you've already given away a ton of stuff..

    I am sure its cause it a APC brand and rack mounted. These ran dual servers we had setup until we ordered a full 20KW APC system and switched over.

    Found the HTPC hard locked today, rebooted it and I'm running it at 70% until I get it installed in it's new case tomorrow. I plan to put new thermal paste on the CPU then as well, as it just has the stock AMD stuff on it now.
