    Yes I did. The System has been up and running a bit less then a month. The reason for it is I am wanting to get a project car again and I need the money for it soon before it is sold. Also I will be moving within the next couple of months and I don't have the room for 3 rigs so i am down sizing to just the i7.

    Well, I'm sorry to see it go, but I understand that you have to do what you have to do.

    I can't imagine downsizing to only one rig.

    Its going to be different going from having a total of i think 6 rigs down to 1. But i am going to be moving in with a girl and we agreed that there isn't enough room for everything so we are both down sizing. (glad it isn't just me having to)

    Well, with fifteen computers currently in half of my dorm room I don't see how three would take up too much space, but I'm glad that you two are already talking through things :toast:

    A switch got locked up and prevented 3 of my rigs from sending results for who knows how long. I noticed yesterday when checking up on my hosts.

    I'll wind down starting Thursday since the holidays are coming.

    Well, good luck getting your motherboard replaced :toast:
    So you've purchased all of this hardware just to run it for a couple weeks? That seems exceedingly odd to me...

    You misunderstand. The hardware is for the dedicated crunchers, those will keep going, but I have to shutdown everything since I'll be away for a week.

    That makes much more sense--I'm glad to hear that they'll keep going when you get back:)

    Pretty much had everyone bail on the hard drives. I just wanted to give the WCG community first dibs, I will try to get a FS thread up tonight.

    Sorry man, not really in need for HDDs now. Plus shipping them overseas probably would kill the deal. Else I would definitely have considered buying one or a few.

    That's the one that won't work as a second card in the AMD rig or as a single card in the Q9300 rig, but works fine in the kids' i3 rig. I don't want to take their machine away anymore, so they can have this card (or I'll sell it for a different one), and I'll move some of the other cards around.

    I had a similar issue with a Powercolor 7770, wouldn't work on any of my two Gigabyte boards but worked fine on the 780G board. I used the fail-safe defaults and it worked then. Worth a shot I think.

    Fail safe settings in the BIOS? That's worth a shot. I'm assuming that there a setting that can be tweaked somewhere to make it work, but I have no idea where to start and little time to make it work.

    Yes, a 7770 is faster than my 6950 at 4 WUs.

    Wait for the 7790 to come out at the end of this week/early next week- may not be the right card for WCG but it will likely affect the price of the 7770/7850 ;)

    Would be nice if W1zz would run a quick batch of WCG wu's on his Radeon reviews so we can see the completion times :)

    good to know :D its going to be a trade with a good friend of mine who mostly plays BF 3 so he'll have the extra oomph of a 6870 and i gain a faster WCG card :D
