    You're welcome.:) That's the thing with server parts, some of it can be quite hazy and with little information on the internet. My personal problem with Amazon and eBay is that many CPU's even use the wrong pictures leaving you even more confused as to wether two items are compatible or not.

    Sucks to get an item sniped when you're about to buy it lol. Either case you can get some awesome deals states side compared to us europeans. But hey, you got something totally new to build and experiment with so that'll provide a few hours of entertainment. :toast:

    CEP2? That could be tricky. They have high requirements for internet use and PC power. I think majority of our team should be ok, but people will also need to know how to remove the limit on WU given per day.

    ^^I have SSD in my lappy so I can't hear how much it suffers :) but my daily PC has a HD and it works hard to times. The reason for the limitted amount of CEP2 WUs were memory usage so you need to check if it frezze from time to time if you run 100 % CEP2. Mydog - make use that you change the profile that you are using. I use "home" for some reason. Forgot why.
    KieX and Mydog say thanks.

    Just got a i73930k,P9X79 PRO. Will work on it this weekend. Haven't built a rig in months and was getting that feeling we all get.:laugh: Was also a gift to myself for stop smoking for the second time and cutting down on the beer. The casino is one thing I should stop but they keep giving me money.:)

    PM me if you need a 1055t and a MA790FXT-UD5P.

    Crunch on and crunch harder.:rockout:

    Edit: The 1055t is going to stinger608. Think I will keep the Board for a backup.

    Remembering your past posts about casino trips, I'd say that's a good thing to keep doing :laugh: Congrats on quitting smoking, that's always difficult. :toast:

    I could sure use that 1055T in my cruncher at home. I would put it to crunching 24/7 100% for u :)

    I got all of the parts today but I don't seem to have an extra case. I do have a couple of really cheesy HTPC cases that are in parts all over the house, so I guess I'm going to have to use one of those.

    UPS had said Monday for my parts which were coming from TN but USPS said the chips were coming from FL and would be here today. I should have figured something was wrong if USPS was going to ship their package further and in less time than UPS. Oh well. I'll try to get psyched up tonight and maybe get to work on it tomorrow.

    First I need to get the Tivo set up. The cable co's DVRs are ancient and you can't pause anything without it starting back up after about an hour. That was driving batty, well, batty-er. Not to mention the fact that it only holds about 20 hrs of HD programming. I recorded an amazing documentary on the Smithsonian channel that was 2.5hrs all by itself. If you want to save something like that, it reduces your space by more than 10%. Screw that.

    But the Tivo is an old model and requires something called a tuning adapter. So I want to get that done first. It looks pretty simple though. I just don't have a lot of rack space left.

    I used to be at the casinos at least twice a month, but I've cut them out just about entirely now. Obviously they were not treating me as well as you :laugh:

    If you do get around to selling the motherboard down the road, drop me a PM. I've got an AII X3 I would like to attempt to unlock and have running for a little bit.

    I belive I had a close call during the night:eek:

    Left a window in the cruncher room with a slightly to big opening, during the knight the temps dropped to -20C:twitch:. Roomtemp was 8C when I got up this morning and the two SR-2's had watertemps of 3,6C and 7,8C, luckily no leaks.
