    Ok guys, today was my final day of work which mean my only cruncher has been turned off and brought home :(

    I have ideas of moving it to my HTPC and running it 24/7 but it will take some time. I will run the 6950's (or 7970 when/if it arrives) for certain parts of the day to draw in some numbers.

    This all around sux.

    Newegg screwed my address up :banghead: luckily I have a friend that works for UPS here in Kingston, she's just going to sign for it and drop it to me after shes done work around 11 am :D p.s she works graveyard, so i can get it before 7pm as my place is super close to the facility and they drive furthest away and make their way back

    mhm, just knowing that by the end of the month i will have a sweet gaming setup (that crunches a bit) and also a dedicated rig for WCG is enough to keep me happy :D

    installed it and ran some stability test and the card got so hot it would throttle clocks down to 650mhz :( I took the card apart and repasted it now it will hit 1050/1500 at 85 deg 47% fan! I am really happy.

    Made a quick sale on my P55/i7-870 system today along with some RAM, a CX430, Hyper 212 EVO and Samsung F1 as it is getting a bit long in the tooth, and I figured I should sell it while it still had decent value. So, I will lose ~4K PPD and I have to bring some old systems online to accommodate the GTX 465 and 2x 460s, but it gives me some money to save up for Haswell, possibly. Hopefully the GPU stuff stays around for a little while longer considering I have 5 7xxx cards now, but I guess other projects are out there that support them.

    My dumb self forgot to plug the ethernet cable back into the DP Xeon system when I left yesterday--IIRC I have a 3-day buffer on it, so it should run out of work about when I get back to school on Sunday. So numbers will be down a bit for now...

    I scored an i3 2100 for a decent deal so I'm thinking I'll throw the 7770 on that, and when I get the 3770k, I'll throw the 7870 on that. Only thing is if I'm going to do that, I'll have to get a z77 mobo for the 3770k.

    I'm thinking about going itx on the 3770k and 7870, maybe a bitfenix prodigy and an itx z77.... Maybe, nothing is decided. i may just wait to get the 3770k and see what happens. :confused:

    You're going all out--:D

    What motherboard do you have? Even a H61 would be fine for the i3...

    I have here an MSI z68 gd55, the one I pm'd you about a few weeks back lol. From what I could tell, it would run the 3770k well enough.

    Then the i3 came along. I had looked at it several days ago, before the 3770 but passed. Then tonight I made an offer and paid for it :) So I can put the i3 2100 in that perfectly, but I need a new mobo for the i7

    So I don't know.

    Right.

    If you use the i3-2100 to update the BIOS, the Z68 should work fine with the 3770k for OCing--then you could get something like this ($45 AR w/ free 8GB RAM--yummy!) for the i3

    Not a bad find at all. So you think the z68 would be fine with the 3770? That was my initial plan, but then I started getting the other ideas....

    I'd check the CPU compatibility list to make sure it supports IVB CPUs w/ the newest BIOS--but since you're just doing a straight multiplier OC probably to a sane speed, I see no reason there should be an issue :toast:

    I don't think I'll need to OC the 3770 much, if at all. It'll be running the 7870 with 8-10 WUs, and it'll do that comfortably. I'm not decided yet, may still decide on something else in the mean time.

    Thanks for your input! :toast:

    10-12 on a 7970. Mine are doing 10 each, but I'm thinking of bumping to 12 each, as it may allow it. I believe some are running 12 on their cards.

    Congrats on the 7970! and GLWS :toast:

    I run 16. On my system it offered the best time to complete a WU for the number of WU's. It is a bit extreme but I am not using the system for while it is crunching.

    16 WU on a quad-core CPU? Just wow:twitch:
    You are running i5-2500, right? Seems a bit extreme. What is your average daily gain?
