    Much appreciated! :toast:

    I'm getting the SB-E, X79 board, and HD7770s from my parents tomorrow, so I should be able to get them crunching ASAP :toast:

    Just to check, the CPU has a stock cooler, right?

    Ahh. I see. Well, I'll get it sorted out. I'll pull the Xigmatek Gaia from the i7-860, put the HD7950 back into the i3-2100, and run the HD7770s and HD7850 in the SB-E setup.

    We got a taste of Canada yesterday- 2+ feet of snow everywhere here and the roads in CT are closed until further notice. You know it's a big storm when the plows get stuck :twitch:

    Will be spending most of the day today digging out the house and the cars. Hopefully the streets get plowed out in our area so I can make it out later today or early tomorrow and get some cleanup done at work :eek:

    Hope everyone in the path of the storm make out OK...

    EDIT: Looks like power is out where off-site rig #3 is running :( :banghead:
    It's only doing about 3,500 ppd but I won't be able to get it going for at least 2-3 days...

    @Norton- What a mess we have out here today. At least I didn't lose power this time, so far. The worst part about this is we're supposed to get torrential rain on Monday, don't pile the snow to close to your house if you can help it.

    Yes it is good that we didn't lose power this time... savor the small victories eh? :D

    I don't really have a flooding issue here so no worries on that. However, my back is dreading the 2-3 days of shoveling between home and work :(

    How much did you end up with up there?

    WOOOW they close the roads? We still had to go to school here in Canada -_- they cancelled the buses though, but we still had to make it to school... Apparently the buses are more important than the students, wouldn't want to hurt the precious buses.

    That's a good amount of snow, enough to immobilize a city that isn't used to it or prepared. But for us, this is what it takes to immobilize us: http://www.theweathernetwork.com/ne...&stormfile=london_on_walloped_by_snow__061210

    I'm sure I've shown you the videos I took of that day. We received about 42 inches and in some areas even more.

    Don't strain your back shoveling Bill ;)

    P.S.: I'm back to crunching now but only on off peak hours when London hydro charges the least for power which means overnights and on weekends. With my new job once my commissions and spiffs kick in (probably this time next year) I'll be able to go back to 100%.

    We can take a little bit when we get half a season in one day then it's a problem.

    As far as my back goes..... too late and I'm only about 1/2 done with shoveling :ohwell: Going to be a long week I think :eek:

    Good to see you crunching again!!! :toast:

    The i7-3930k is now running with both of the HD7770s from Mike. For some reason, it refuses to POST when my HD7850 is installed :(

    It's around 30 inches, 40 in the snow drifts. Got my bobcat stuck, almost to much snow. Might have to do it the old fashioned way.

    About six :p
    It was running just fine in the i3 today, so IDK what happened. I'm gonna try it out in my AMD X2 or maybe the i3 later.

    Cool, at least you know it's not the card itself.

    Ehh, I haven't tried it out since it was behaving oddly, so I actually know nothing. I will try it out later :p
