    i had to shut down for an hour this morning as a T storm moved through the area and was making my lights flicker a few times, shut down both desktops just to be safe. Back up and running tho :D

    Best set the buffer on more than a day so that there is work you can do when internet is down shortly.

    I've had good luck with Unetbootin, although yeah. I don't think I've tried persistent storage all that much. IIRC, it throws it in a squashfs file rather than making a separate partition and mounting it.

    Unetbootin makes a SquashFS FS indeed.

    ok, so I've got a 1055t in the office up and running. I'm working into locating one of the 8350s at the office too.

    Currently both 8350s are off but the 3770k is running, I think it'll do over 9... 8000 if I manage to have it running 24/7 for more than a couple of days (there's some heavy rain in my area). I'll make sure to bring the 8350s on for the challenge though.

    congrats :D :toast:

    also, after 12 hours of usage the cooling pad has dropped temps 10 degrees :D mind you i had to take the backing off of the laptop (the panel that covers the memory and HDD) as there is no venting underneath the laptop, but the laptop isnt going to be moved much hence the overkill cooling pad and removed panel. I hope to run 24/7 on the lappy now :D

    Finally!!!!

    After its vacation in Puerto Rico my package of misc w/c parts finally went through the Post Office in Springfield, MA..... I should get it tomorrow :rolleyes:

    Will be nice to finish up my loop and get some pics before the side panel gets put back on and it goes back to work crunching and folding full time :)

    The Swiftech H220 in the rig is still running awesome with the new impeller.... whisper quiet too!

    Got it!!!

    I don't think the box would have survived another day...

    This is the "good" side! :twitch:

    They did deploy a "flexible multi-format packaging protector" though... aka a rubber band :laugh:

    Thankfully, the parts inside survived the trip just fine. :rolleyes:

    USPS has a tendency to screw up packages. Take a look at a case I was sent a year or so ago care of USPS:

    [​IMG]

    It looked as though it had been hit by a truck at some point, or dropped out of an airplane. The Bitfenix case in there did not make it.
