    Hope it's not something I said/did. He's a great guy that helped me get my HTPC/cruncher going.

    Got my M5A99X EVO (refurb), A 4GB Crucial Ballistix Sport 1600MHz stick and a "refurbished" Hyper 212+ today from Geeks.com. The awesome news was that they actually sent me a Hyper 212+ EVO which looked brand new (a steal for $13) and the RAM I'm going to swap with my E350 APU box so I can get my old Ripjaws back. The M5A99X came in a plain box with ASUS Refurbished tape and a bag with just about all the accessories, and the board works. However, the bad news is that the middle white PCIe slot is broken and nothing is recognized in it, so I had to change my plans and throw my 550 Ti and GT 440 in this machine in top/bottom slots. Don't want to spend $15 shipping the damn thing back, especially when there aren't any left at Geeks anyway. Despite that, I hope it continues working for at least a year as I only paid $90 for it.

    Those are great boards... got one in my main rig! :toast:

    As far as condition, I think you can RMA direct to ASUS and get a brand new one if this is one is messed up... as far as I know the warranty by serial # back to date of manufacture???

    I don't know about through the roof, but it's around 650,000 ppd. It's not what it used to be before Stanford changed the points, but it's the best I can do.:rockout:

    That would be sweet! I wish I could install WCG here at the office. That's about 90 cores crunching. But IT is too stupid and stuck up to even bring this up with them.

    We had two spare xeon quads for a while that I crunched but that was only for a month or so until they were needed elsewhere.

    If things continue to work for me and my girl, we plan on moving into a two bedroom apartment. In that case I can have a spare room just for PC's. At that point I will also be making more money. So then I can build a nice little farm. In the meantime I cannot have more than two crunchers , which sucks. :(

    Atleast you have two CPU's with HT! Your I7-950 probably puts out more than my Phenom II/Athlon X4 combined.
