    I stopped short of my 40M, but if I had had a proper buffer, I may have been able to reach it :mad: Silly me :rolleyes:

    That stuff is expensive :(

    I'm going to try boiling things to death to see what that accomplishes. If things are bad again in a month maybe I'll have to resort to that. I'm not going to use tap water, I have another bottle of distilled from the grocery.

    Good luck on your 45m! :D

    It seems that WCG is prioritizing the hosts that receive new WUs. My 7750 and 7770 crunchers are out of work but the 7850s are still receiving some small batches, got 13 M tasks about an hour ago. 600 pages to go.

    Dang, its been in the 90s for the last week over here which is unusually high for this time of year. It's going to cool down before the summer hits in full force and 100+ becomes the norm, but I was not ready for this little heatwave. At least it didn't hit during the CC :D

    I can kind of feel your pain. The week started out hot, and then some crazy weather rolled in where we had some serious thunderstorms later in the week. All day yesterday was nuts and this afternoon was bad; I almost hit down yesterday for fear of lightning. I'm sure this weekend it'll go back to high 80's :(

    This will be my first summer crunching so I'm looking forward to it, already higher than normal temps in the living room. But since the GPU WUs stopped, it has cooled down quite a bit ;)

    It's been abnormally pleasant here--sub-70c for a week or so :)

    I've re-assembled the WC setup and it isn't leaking :)D) so I'll be installing it on the i7 again tonight.

    Nice, leaks suck like woah! I've had 2, 1 major and 1 minor; nothing fun.

    Did you clean out all the nasties? ;)

    I was thinking of redoing my loop this weekend, but I need to order new tubing before I do, which means it will have to wait. :(

    I boiled all of the fittings and the waterblock for another twenty minutes, and flushed both rads and the pump/reservoir combo with boiling water three times. I then re-built things with distilled water and two drops of Dead Water (we're supposed to use a drop per liter, and I used about 40% of my gallon bottle).

    So I hope so :)

    That sounds pretty intense and thorough, should take care of the nasties. It sounds like you did a really good job flushing it all out, very awesome.

    One can only hope. It's a lot of trouble dealing with this, and I'm really not sure how I can even get the tubing off of the fittings now :p

    I usually cut mine off with a slight slice up the fitting - not too deep to reach the metal and scratch it.
