    I noticed that about the Northbridge on some AMD boards. I have an extra 120mm fan inside my case that helps direct some air over the video card and across the NB. Seems to help pull the heat off of it and drops the temp about 10C ;)

    We'll see on Top 10. It's getting tough to hold on to a Top 20 spot lately!

    :laugh::laugh::laugh: Yea no shit man. 150 miles away and can walk and get it faster than shipping. :laugh: Wouldn't surprise me. :laugh:

    And damn!!!!!!! Just scored yet another smoking deal on the following:

    Gigabyte EX58-UD5 Motherboard
    Intel i7 920 D0 Stepping CPU
    3x2GB OCZ Reaper 1866 DDR3

    Ended up grabbing all of that for $170 shipped!!!!!!!! Flat could not pass it up!!! Maybe sell all of it, or try to put together another 8 thread cruncher. :rockout::rockout::rockout:

    At [H]ard forums!!!!!!! Shot the guy a PM about 5 minutes after he posted it!!! Good member also. Hell, he said he had over 10 pms by the time I made the payment. :laugh:

    I don't think he realized how cheap he was selling it for!!!!!! Damn, the chip usually goes for about $120 to $140 and that motherboard usually goes for about $100. Ram, ah probably $30. None the less, I figured that was a frigging steal!!!!!!!!

    2600k deal may fall though... I'm having second thoughts about it, and the guy may end up using it himself anyway. On a side note, I'm working on getting my 920 up to 4GHz. I'm considering lapping it as well. The big 4... just may finally get there.

    Still not sure if I am going to be able to keep it though. Money is so damn tight at the moment and really couldn't afford it, but damn! How do ya pass a deal up like that. :laugh:

    Well, I haven't yet asked about the i3-2100, but I did ask a friend of mine here about putting WCG on his laptop, and now I have it running on a Core i7-3610QM (2.3GHz turbo to 3.1 on 8t). I'm not sure how much he'll be running it (this is his gaming/school laptop), but it should be at least 12hrs/day I'd imagine. Currently, it won't get work (it says that the project is down), but hopefully that will be solved soon. I'll get a SS of it crunching once it gets work! :)

    Hope your internet starts working again soon.

    And about the off topic posts thing, I believe the problem we've had with you posting is that you were trying to post tons of posts everywhere, most of which were either lacking usefulness or were in subjects where people were asking for advice and it was unlikely you had first-hand experience or supporting evidence with the matter to offer credible advice.

    You basically posted 800 things on the forum in less than 2 months of being here, when most people usually take almost a year or more to do that. The point of forums most of the time is to find the threads pertaining to topics you know or actually care about enough to offer valid arguments or advice in. You lost your credibility in a sense because you were outright churning out posts like an assembly line and most of the posts offered little or no helpful material in them.

    Most forums are used by adults, so you are seeing our perspective on this matter. You will probably understand in a few years why some members aren't exactly happy with your posting habits.

    I don't believe any of us are mad at you as a person. All we ask is that you have better forum etiquette, which means posting fewer posts and making them as meaningful to the community as you can. :)

    He uses it exclusively on a stand--otherwise I imagine it would get warmer still. I've told him that if the temps are making him uncomfortable I'll set the CPU usage lower or uninstall it.


    Free-DC doesn't seem to be working here either :confused:
