    Nopper buddy like I said last night it had nothing to do with the storm.. All we got was a little wind. My power issues came from a bad circuit.. :banghead:

    Good news! My i7-920 should be back from RMA tomorrow, and I have someone coming to look at my AMD X2 tonight. Between the i7 and whatever else I can get from the sale of the dual-cores, that should be an impressive boost! :toast:

    Bad news- power just went out over here and the winds are kicking around pretty hard now. :cry: The only thing that drowning out the wind is the wifey..... complaining about no power and the wind. :rolleyes:

    Not sure when the power will be coming back but most of my crunchers will be down until we get it back. Weather is set to improve tomorrow at some point so hopefully this only lasts a day or two.

    Will use my mobile connection when I can and will let you know when everythings back up...

    Stay safe Norton! Sorry to hear that your wife is giving you grief :(



    I've sold the AMD X2, so I'm on the lookout for new crunching power to add--I'll keep you guys posted! :toast:

    Starting to feel the effects of Sandy here in London as the northwest edge of the storm is hitting us. Nothing to what the coast is currently experiencing though.

    im soo stocked to be getting a Evga z77 FTW @ $124 :D Still debating on a 7850 or a 7870 to compliment the 3570K im planning to get for the mobo. The plan is to crossfire in April or May. Im sure either card(s) will be a powerhouse GPU crunching combo.

    the 7870 is $259 if you plan to crossfire you're better of with the 7970

    im prolly looking at 7850s as they are a shade over $200 atm and they fit into my budget better. I have to put money away usually for stuff over $150 (thats about my monthly limit) so looking at my options, the 7850s sound like a good choice

    Hi! I'm from the Internet
    And that's why I call CA my buddy :toast:


    Winds starting top pick up here and they are saying we will have snow by morning. They have Blizzard warnings in some areas around here but not us. This is going to be one interesting night. Hell they have closed everything down. The liquor stores closed down at 2 this afternoon but battery plus is still open.

    It will be interesting. Please, give a link after uploading the video to YouTube.
    I hope that you and your family are safe, as well as others who are affected by the hurricane.

    Well, I just got my replacement CPU from Intel. They shipped me a BNIP i7-920. I've installed it and I'm seeing more life than before. I'm creating a flash drive of Windows 7 now. Assuming the installation works, I'll install the Antec H2O-620 and overclock after class. Pics incoming!
