    didn't win the Phenom II X4 840T so an Athlon II X4 620 will have to do. Shipping tomorrow, hopefully it'll reach Mad_Shot by the 6th or so.

    Not as amazing as mjkmike's donation of the 3930k and ASUS P9X79 Deluxe motherboard I won in the last challenge, not to mention the 16 gig of RAM, TX850 PSU, and 3 ASUS HD 7770 video cards that he included in the package. What I'm donating is NOTHING in comparison.

    Bother servers will be onboard for the Birthday Challenge as well as the i7-870. I wonder if it's worth enlisting the A6-6420K in the HTPC? Hmmmm..... I kinda forget what that Cherry Pie taste's like....

    Won't get much ppd. I would think 2kppd or just less. My A10 5800k gets ~2500ppd. THe total power usage for the system while crunching is ~150w or less.

    You probably should just start a new thread for the main challenge and maybe have Buck sticky it?

    Yes, they are different. It's rather complex to describe the difference, but it's more satisfying to "steal" a pie, than make it yourself.
