    I'm in need of a mobo/ram/CPU combo if anyone has one sitting around.

    I got a HDD, PSU, Case and video card already.

    I guess I can call this new cruncher dead :( Was goofing off in ubuntu when I inputted a command in terminal and as soon as I did the monitor shut off and had to hard reset, Once I tried to reboot its no post. Tried 4 different ram sticks/slots unplugged everything no go.

    well that was a waste of time

    I felt the same way as you when I put together UltimateVortex. But then I woke up on saturday morning and realized i had put my 1055T in the wrong way. Lucky me I didn't fry anything.

    Be sensitive dude! Geez!
    Nothing worse than a burnt component. :shadedshu

    Have Ubuntu loaded as a VM on the X6 with 2 cores and 4 GB RAM. Man this is cool. I've messed around with EXSi and CentOS before, but never got around to tinkering with Ubuntu. I have a feeling this is going to be my project for the week.

    Maybe this next cruncher I'm building.... I'll use Ubuntu instead. :D



    Looking for a Althon X2 or C2D. I'd like a mobo that can use DDR3.

    I'd really like an i3 or i5 though.

    I'm a fan of msi. I do still have my doubts about getting a dud but thats with every board. Sry to hear bout you luck with them. after 2 times I'd call it quits on it also. Time to make the switch.

    I haven't had any problems with MSIs newer boards. I may have just been lucky though.

    I hear ya, any of the remaining 775/AM2/AM2+ boards are usually junk. My ASRock G41M-S3 works alright but like my ASRock Bulldozer setup, the vdroop is ridiculous.

    I as well has had good luck with MSI boards on various builds I've done. What my buddy had horrible luck with was a Asrock Socket AM3+ board, think the 990X. He need up trashing it or selling it after a RMA. Not sure but it just wouldn't work for him.

    Hi! I'm from the Internet
    I have had a really stupid problem with Msi boards here lately.

    @Brandon can you rma it one time then sell it off? Atleast you will get some money out of it for your trouble. But of course make sure it works fully when you get it back. Also what command did you run in terminal?


    @Radical Edward: Isn't Ubuntu cool man. I really like it. I have 1 Cruncher running it and another on the way when my lowpro vid card gets here.

    The Celeron Dual Core is being decommissioned tonight; I've found a buyer on Craigslist :/
    At least on the upside I'll be building a few more dual cores in a week or two that I'll then crunch on until they're sold.
