    Thanks norton! I wished this board was better on OCing. It only has two voltages to give the CPU other than AUTO and that is 1.43 and 1.475??????? WTF!!! Maybe its due to it being a older AM2+ board and this is a NEWER AM3 CPU? its updated to the latest bios.

    I may look for a mATX 880G or something later on to replace it so I can use onboard video and may OC alittle better.
    11 Hours on the OC running WCG 100% so I am assuming stability is good.

    My low end Gigabyte 880G OCs well and has been stable for weeks of 100% up time unless its just a good batch of boards. I don't need nothing more than that for a cruncher.

    Yea I need to make some changes soon as well. I need to trade the 790FX for a 880G and that will go into the NZXT Vulcan then I will need to find a Mid tower for the 2600K and Gigabyte board.

    So many changes LOL!

    Ouch. Yeah I really can't do that =/ If it was something out of my own rig I would be willing to listen. Probably going to have to have you ixnay on the SSD. More in need of a quieter,cooler gpu for her rig.

    @Brandon

    Crap. Alright. Will ponder a trade give me a few days to think it over.

    F@H is more of a Nvidia GPU program. ATI/AMD works but not as much PPD from what I have been told.

    Nvidia still owns, but AMD nowadays is doing much better than before. Don't matter if it's not much, lending them a hand is what counts!

    After many months deliberating (and increasing PPD instead :D) I think the bells are ringing for me to finally start decreasing my output.

    I'm having to reduce my costs and regain some capital as I'm having to save as much as possible for a forthcoming house move sometime in summer. Well, that and also an interest in travelling around Europe.

    This is not a farewell though. I hope to retain at least 30K PPD and I will do whatever my budget will allow to help keep the i7's within the team.

    Keeping on Crunhing :toast:
