    Shit, really? :eek: :confused:
    I'm running several other systems on stock cooling (I know, shoot me now :p ) and they do reasonably fine (CeleronDC runs in the upper 60s, C2D runs in the mid 70s)...I had no idea that I would have to underclock & under-utilize to keep the temps below TJMAX.

    New cooler it is then :cool:

    Yeah, gets quite hot in here though. To where I'm sweating just sitting at my desk. Another reason why you guys saw my numbers plummetted and drifted away.

    I've set my machines to only crunch at night due to heat. Freaking window AC doesn't work in our older style double windows. :ohwell:

    What's up fellas, just dropping by to say that I'm alive but I have not been on much and won't be on much for a while till I'm better. I've caught a pretty bad cold and cough. Been to doctors, taking meds but this shit won't go away. It's incredible what a bad cough can do, every inch of my body hurts, I feel like I got hit by a damn train. Sweating the fever off as I type this.

    I'll try to be on more, but I spend most of the day in bed, I've barely made it to work, just sucks, plain and simple!

    Get better soon! :toast:

    On a more positive note, at least you have your third star again! :toast: :rockout:

    Any luck with the 2600k?

    EDIT: Ordered an Antec Kuhler H2O 620; when it arrives I'll re-enable Hyperthreading and see how far I can push the i7 :toast:

    well I got to swapping a rig out for another one. I switched out the 940 at 3.4 for a i3 530 2.9 oc'd to 3.7. Will try oc'ing it higher once I get a better cooler then stock. Temps are sitting around 41c so not to bad. only thing I gotta figure out now is to get the wireless to connect on its own. Its up and running now but not net. Gonna let it run through the night and and then reconnect the net then to upload. That should help my numbers a lil more. Once I get a psu over 550-600w I can get my i7 up and running. Chips should be here Mon/Tues. Soo can't wait to finally have my Phantom running.

    Have it at 3.9 GHz now with some tweaks. RAM tested out good, had some settings that I don't remember setting :laugh: so I just switched those back and will see how it does.

    Well I couldn't wait till tomorrow as usual lol. I got it up and connected now and she's running. Temps were looking a lil high to me so I backed the clk down to 3.5 instead of 3.7. See how that goes. I'm gonna look around for a cheap decent cooler for it for now.

    So you're just going to leave the i7 at 3.9GHz then? Sadly low, but definitely better than BSODing at least :)

    Also, YGPM

    You should be able to do around 1.25v at 4.2GHz. Mine does 4.5 at just under 1.3v.

    Well I had it running at this voltage for 4.5 GHz when it was stable, just I remember tweaking some stuff with the new RAM and never got it stable again. I think I found what the problem was so I'm just leaving the voltage as is and then going up on clock speed.

    Ok I have the 2600K down and packed up for its transplant at work. I have one question. I have a Enermax Liberty 500W 44 Amp PSU, You think it would handle two 5770's and a 2600K @ 4.5ghz 1.33V?

    +3.3V@28A, +5V@30A, +12V1@22A, +12V2@22A, -12V@0.6A, +5VSB@3A

    I run a 1GHz 7950 and 4.5GHz 2600K on my Rosewill Capstone 550w, although it has a 45A single rail.

    I am thinking it will handle it just fine but in case it doesn't I will exchange the enermax with the corsair TX550M cause I KNOW it will handle it.

    If it was single rail I think it would be ok. But with a dual rail supply you may trip the ocp.

    CeleronDC is probably getting sold tomorrow, so I'll be retiring it. My Kuhler 620 should arrive on Wednesday, but I'll get it installed Thursday evening and see how it works. Shooting for at least 3.5GHz w/ HT enabled, we'll see.

    Brandon, how many rigs are you taking to the office?

    I keep one at work and four at home. I am just changing the I3-530 out with a 2600K combo at work. Games seem like they are taking FPS hits due to the Crunching and gaming at the same time.

    Just got a complete C2Q Q6600 HP system for free today. Owner was going to scrap it, as the OS had died.(Vista)

    I've already started installing a new OS. :D
