    It happens frequently. Usually the site the stats get pulled from goes down or something.

    Yeah, if not up in a bit, I'll get to work on it, but it always comes back on its own.

    When I finish ramping up we will be an even match, no OC for me due to the power usage. My rigs are running well and the temps are very good so I will stay with good company for a while :toast:

    Agree 100%- our accomplishment as a Team is where the best work is done :rockout:

    @radical edward- our badges were here a few minutes ago... maybe the server at FreeDC or WCG has gone down??? I don't remember where the badges come from ATM

    Interesting turn of events today. After having 3 old boards "die" in the last few days - either stop booting into Windows, freezing, not POSTing and all sorts of other garbage, I let them sit without batteries for a day and tried again. One began working properly after inserting different sticks of RAM a few times (was freezing halfway through boot), one POSted again with a new battery, and the other works with different RAM now. Don't ask me how changing the RAM (which all was working properly) changed anything, I have no idea! I could understand the one that would not POST with a dead battery though.

    I need to buy a couple CR2032 batteries and make sure all my batteries are good. Mad Shot's old board, which kills a fresh battery once a week, I think I'm just going to hardwire to a 3v power supply as buying $12 in batteries a month doesn't make much sense lol. Even though it's a battery killer, it still works great after 7 years!

    No unlock on mine (tried 3 different boards) :(

    It's just a great quad that can hit 3.8Ghz stable and cool w/o much effort. :toast:

    Tried 3 generations/3 brands:
    - Gigabyte 790X/SB850
    - MSI 790GX/SB750
    - ASUS 990X/SB950

    Unlocked on all of them and posted but instant BSOD upon Windows startup no matter what clock, voltage, ram speed, BIOS revision, or windows version I tried. :banghead:

    This is an earlier chip, I understand that the stable unlock rate has improved some with the chips now being sold.....

    My Sempron 130 unlocked, but it had a nasty cache issue I guess that made certain parts of webpages appear as if they were in "16 color" mode and Microsoft Security Essential would infinitely install until I disabled the core.

    But still, think of it as being like a Phenom 955BE but with the much better Thuban memory controller. :)

    You'll get there, your persistence will pay off! :toast:

    Exactly, and with the C3 revision too!
    It's like comparing 2 V8 engines... one with a solid lifter cam and holley carb vs one with a roller cam and multiport fuel injection :D

    I have 2 Thubans: 1075T (125w) and 1045T (95w). At the same frequency 3.0GHz memory controller 1075T is faster , despite the fact that the 1045T is overclocked by 10% (increased bus frequency).

    Well Hopefully I should be getting a lil more ppd. I just oc'd my x3 720 from 2.8 to 3.6GHz. All thanks to Jr's help. We'll see how long it lasts. It has no problem staying cool under a Havik 140 :D
