    One of these days your DNA is going to switch from a double helix to 0' and 1's or your rigs are going to assimilate you :p:laugh:

    Perhaps so. Provided the last HP that I have left sells tomorrow, I think this system may need a Tahiti card :toast:

    Nothing but the best (for this purpose) but do remember that there is less then 83 days left of GPU work. You will have cherry pie without it since I'm going to travel again and we all know that as soon as I'm in the airport my rigs start acting up :laugh:

    New projects coming....

    New projects are coming in 2013 and maybe some additional badge opportunities! :rockout:

    No details yet but here is the post from the WCG forum:

    Ehh, actually I won't---come May 12th, everything but maybe one or two i7s gets shut down. I just can't run everything when we have to foot the bill for the electricity--while I could cover it, my parents aren't willing to let me. But I may just stay where I am...and I'll have everything going again mid-late August ;)
    Awesome! I'm all in for new projects--need new badges to search for :D

    I have two new systems coming online soon--a Q6600 and an E8300 :toast:

    What tasks? Some of the CPU tasks take well over ten or twelve hours, depending on the processor that you have.


    The fan in the PSU on my 3770k rig exploded this morning--I'm weighing the pros and cons of trying to RMA the PSU now versus just deciding to hell with it and running it anyways. I figure I'm only running a DC draw of ~90w on it, and it is an 80+ PSU, so it should be OK.

    When I got it on Tuesday the fan rattled and scraped a bit--I woke up this morning to no rattling or scraping, but the fan off and a blade detached from the hub. The system itself was still running though :toast:

    Just put another fan on it, sure you can work that out.:)

    quick question, what would be better for an i5 3570K a Hyper 212 EVO or a Zalman CNPS10X ? i'm going to be grabbing one of the two and am wondering which would be better.

    Oh, I'm sure I can replace the fan, but that would involve voiding the warranty--which I'd rather not do, given a choice. So I may just send it back to them and decommission the AMD X2 for a week again :p
    I find the retention bracket on the Hyper 212+ to be maddening--I'd suggest the Xigmatek Gaia.

    On the bleeding edge you have a Noctua U12P. I use that on my i5 3570K and I can guarantee it's possibly one of the best ones you could ever get (it's equalling my previous H100 temps inside a Fractal Arc Mini). But I've only heard good things about the 212+ so you might as well get that and celebrate the task of bolting it together with a beer afterwards (and still have some money left over).

    If you can find it on NewEgg.ca I suggest you take a look at the Xigmatek Dark Knight Night Hawk Ed. It's price dropped recently on the US NewEgg site. It's a fantastic cooler and a very easy mounting solution! :toast:

    It does a great job of keeping overclocked Bulldozer/Piledriver chips nice and cool ;)

    The Gaia is $32 on Newegg.ca, i could go for that, it's just that there are shiesty ppl in my apt building and sometimes ppl don't get mail. Case in point, my wife's father won a $350 Rockstar branded BMX and these ppl signed for it, faking the signature. As long as I can get it ffrom newegg with a signature AND Identification required, i will go that route.

    Welp, I've blown the circuit breaker again...hopefully they'll get it fixed before the weekend. I guess when it comes back I'll need to move another system or two to the other circuit--probably should have done that anyways.

    Considering my i7/HD 79xx systems push 300-400 watts, I wouldn't be surprised. I don't know how you manage to put up with all those rigs in your dorm room.

    I just don't understand that--you said the GPU is ~100w, the CPUs are probably ~100w (for a SB/IVB), so I'd imagine maybe 250-275w tops. My problem is that the 4P setup uses an enormous amount of electricity, and the Folding setups with their GPUs probably aren't great either. The 2700k, 3930k, and 860 are still running, as they were on my roommate's circuit.

    I think things have started to come back one, as I've just noticed computers start to pop back up in my Teamviewer list. I'll run back to the dorm and turn things on and rearrange right after I get out of this class (just over an hour).

    I'd say between the two circuits I'm easily pushing 2000 or 2200w. If I can get the Q6600 and another i7 on my roommate's circuit that should be enough.

    EDIT: And the HD7950 is running on a 350w PSU, so I don't think it would be using that much power...

    How much ampères do all your devices (including coolers and fridges, lighting and so on) pull out of the wall, per power circuit group? An electrician once told me that if a fuse says "fuck it" it is usually either too much ampères or moisture. Or your fusebox is past its prime.

    Fridge is on the roommate's circuit, lights don't seem to be on any circuit I can tell of, cooler is a box fan in the window. I'd assume ~20-23A for the crunchers (~5A on the roommate's circuit and then the rest on mine).
