    Is calling your electricity provider an option at all? Are you sure that there isn't possibly a problem with the regulator itself, like an overload or a faulty component?

    The government is the electricity provider. I have better ways to spend my time than wait 45 minutes on a line.

    I think I'll try with another regulator. I need one for my media center anyway.

    I spliced a diode into the +12v line to the pump--it took maybe 15 minutes including finding the soldering iron and all is now well. I may send the H100 off for RMA at some point, but no need to ATM.

    Rebuilt my Junior rig with the spare A880GZ I had and the Xig Night Hawk/FX-8150 that was left over from the upgrade in the water cooled project rig :)

    [​IMG]

    I used a pair of Noctua NF-F12 PWM 1,500 RPM fans for the Night Hawk and the temps are pretty darn nice! :pimp:

    Just waiting on a 2x4GB ram set- using a couple of the 2GB HyperX T1 sticks I have for now but the rig is sluggish with only 4GB of ram... though it may have something to do with the 8 CEP2 projects that are running atm. :rolleyes:

    Wow, awesome! :toast:

    I have my 2600k setup--I will get pics "tomorrow"

    Specs are:
    2600k @ 4.4
    P8P67 EVO3
    Corsair H100
    Antec 550w (old, not sure what model)
    80GB HDD
    4GB DDR3 1066 (HP system pull)
    Cooler Master Centurion

    Running Linux Mint 15 x86_64

    Total cost for the system has been around $370 or so--not bad I'd say!

    So in the end You decided not to go with LMDE, heh. Was it the wi-fi?
    I assume You went with Mate. Right?

    Congrats of assembling that box, man! All for the Greater Good™! :toast:

    Nice setup! the EVO board is an awesome board!

    on my side, Great news!

    I wanted to make a small server, but I needed to buy a Celeron sandy bridge + board, but I founded a mega deal from a guys not too far from my home. He was selling a board + an i7 2700k for like 300-350$, then I asked him if he was the one who has an ads for a 2600k. He said no, but if I want, I can grab the 2700k for 100$, since he doesn't need it and it's not selling!!

    so Main rig will have the 2700k, and server might have the 2500k :D

    Thats such a good deal. I sometimes feel like I am the only hardware enthusiest in my area. I know there must be others but they don't use craigslist.

    Actually, no, the WiFi card that I was planning on putting in it I had actually put in the 3770k and then forgotten about. It's running over Ethernet bridged through the Atom setup (which is actually providing internet access for all of my HPs as well)

    And yes, MATE x64 :)

    So far it looks like it will be pulling well upwards of 6k PPD. We'll see--that would be sweet. I'd like to see if I can find somewhere to run the 2700k so I can get it crunching again :D

    What do you get from the 8120?
    So far very happy about it! I'm running a painless 1GHz OC and with a 120mm fan sitting on top of the video card blowing at the board, it runs plenty cool too :)

    That's an incredible price--that's only $25 more than I paid for a i3-2100! Enjoy! :D

    Here's the 2600k. The case won't fit a 240mm rad, so it just sits at the bottom. At some point I'd like to find a more permanent solution.

    Currently, it pulls 5.8k to 7.5k points / day. The PPD doesn't want to "steady out" for some reason.

    BTW, I am throwing in another box next week. It's not much, just an Athlon 64 X2 @ 2.3 GHZ. But at least I won't be paying for the power it consumes as it will be "leeching off" muh university :)

    That is surprisingly variable, but on the whole still quite good output :toast:

    I'm always glad to see another WCG rig come online, regardless of specs :)

    Well, finally got some free time. Not with the girlfriend, no cars to tune, just me at home with nothing to do. I actually owe that to the rain, had two cars to tune today but the rain screwed that up. Anyhow, installed the H60 I got from the last contest in the AMD rig, and also booted back up my i7-950 rig. As of now, I'm back at full force with the rigs in my signature. :toast:

    How are the temps on the 8120 with the H60?

    So far at 60% CPU usage 35ºc. Used to be 50-55ºc before :eek:

    Trying to get my c2d 6300 crunching.

    It is currently set up like this but only for the moment.
    [​IMG]

    It isn't downloading any WU's though, I don't know why.



    I also am working on an experiment, thread here.

    My 2600k idles higher than that! :eek:

    Why would you only run it at 60% CPU usage?
    Cool experiment! It's always exciting to see how many WCG systems you can force into a small space. That's what I like about the i3 HPs--they're small and stack nicely :)

    LMK if you need/want a faster C2D for that board... :)

    I had some stabiliy issues even at stock clocks like it is now at just 60% before. I always suspected it was due to heat. Now I want to make sure it's stable like this before I crank it up. If it is, then the problem before was heat. :)

    That makes a lot of sense. I suspect that any heat issues should now be thoroughly an issue of the past ;)

    So you have the 2600k, 950, and 8120 all going now?

    Any word on GPU work in the near future? I was thinking about snatching those 7770s from _larry before Mad Shot gets them, but they're not really an upgrade as far as gaming performance (vs 5870).

    Nothing. There is supposed to be a new project from the Ontario Cancer Institute before too long (although I don't know how long) and the OCI was responsible for the GPU-accelerated HCC project, so there is hope, but we don't know for sure.

    One can hope, though ;)

    I've run the 1090t+2x1055t for a little over a month now and in view of the power consumption I'll do the following:

    - Relocate the 1090 to the CCTV PC. Replace with a 8350 down the line.
    - Sell the 1055s, the X4 620 setup and get a couple of 8350s.
