    Alright guys, I hope to be back for good now. Been to the ER twice in a week, got a really bad Bronchitis that just doesn't leave me alone. They switched around my antibiotics, and so far I'm feeling better but still not 100%. I just haven't been able to be on lately, I've also been staying at my moms house too so I haven't even been around my PC much at all.

    Just wanted to drop by today and let you guys know what was going on. How's everything?

    I'm building an E8300 rig right now and I'll be transferring the E6600 to a case later tonight. I also have a Pentium D board/CPU that I might crunch on for a bit..decisions, decisions....

    But either way, it should be an extra ~1k PPD or so :)

    A couple reasons:
    - I'm running one of the low-profile Intel stock coolers
    - The computer is housed in a tiny mATX case with terrible ventilation
    - The room the computer is in is quite warm

    well my i3 is back up and running. once I get a few more psu's and hdd.s and a few cmos batteries i'll have a few more up and running. next i'll need to get a few gpus to make see of all the slots i'll have and put them to betas when they come and folding. Currently looking around for a decent switch something over 10 and a long enough Ethernet cord around 40'. that'll be the next project but a lil down the road once I have cash coming in again.

    Glad to hear you're ramping back up! :toast:

    Once I get the GTX460 I guess I should switch BOINC to a non-Service install so I'll get some GPU WUs....

    sweet grab there norton.

    my rig is having issues. the i3 is back up and running but it has no onboard gpu and I don't have an extra one. The one that was in it went into my i7 rig. hmm.. so I can't run it without one. gonna be hunting one down that the board will support. I stuck an old 8600 in there but the whole screen is artifacting and can't see a thing. I attempted to score one off Buck but he's not responding to my pm's. Guess I got rejected as usual lol.

    I had to idle 2 rigs during the day for the last few days... peaked at near 100F yesterday

    You still made the Top 20 with one rig idle though :toast:

    Will probably see you on the Pie tomorrow :rockout:

    Impressive :toast:

    I have three Antec Earthwatts/TruePower 650w PSUs...not as fancy, but should handle a mid-range dual-GPU solution fine...and they're cheap :D

    well it looks like I won't have the i3 up and running. I did for a bit cause I got it online and was able to connect to it through teamviewer but Now it won't do anything. I won't even get to the windows logo where its loading. The board doesn't have onboard gpu so I stuck an old card in there That worked the last time I used it. But now nothing.
