UPDATE- see below for chance to win this rig :)

This is what we have so far for ....

Kreij Memorial rig #5 (USA)
- Specs:
Case- BitFenix Pandora Micro-ATX Slim-Tower-
donated by @sneekypeet
Motherboard- TBA
CPU- Pentium G3258
donated by TPU forum member contributions
Ram- 2x2GB Mushkin (DDR3-1600) donated by @OneMoar
Cooler- Alpenfoehn Sella (92mm) donated by @sneekypeet
GPU- MSI GTX 750 OC 1GB donated by @OneMoar
PSU- Corsair CX-430 donated by @sneekypeet
HDD- TBA donated by @Norton
OS- Windows 7 Ultimate donated by @stinger608
KB/Mouse- Logitech MK710 Wireless Desktop donated by @stinger608

Our goal is to donate this rig to a US forum member and for them to give it to someone in need. Anyone interested in a chance to win the rig simply needs to post in this thread and tell us who you would give it to and why*. Current plan is to select a winner over the Thanksgiving holiday weekend and to get the rig to the winner in time for Christmas.
* the who and why in your post is optional but encouraged

Thanks again to all of you for making this forum AWESOME!!! :respect: :lovetpu:

Posting the rig specs again so those interested can have a look.

*Note- I've made the who and why part optional in case someone is interested in winning the rig but would rather not post that info openly. A post stating that you want a chance to win and that you intend to give it to someone you know that needs a PC is required as a minimum.

Winner to be selected by next weekend or sooner so there's still time to get in on this giveaway!!! :)

These are such a good idea i love TPU.

I look around in threads and I see people running Athlon XPs that are really eager to learn but dont have much in the way of a PC and this is a perfect outlet to help them. I was honestly in the same boat and @Urlyin help[ed me YEARS ago by donating a system and i held onto that system slowly making it better for years until I was where I am today. If he hadent sent me that first system disassembled I may have never put one together.

I would have never put the utility DVD together. or got a job in computers. I would still be working retail I wouldn't own a house or have a fiance or be in this state. I would have never found out i had an aptitude for it. or even a desire to learn about it had i never been presented the opportunity. In alot of ways like 8 years ago that Athlon system he gave me changed my life I just didnt know it yet.

To be part of a forum and to be around people that make things like what I experienced possible is a good feeling and another reason iv logged in every day since I joined.

Huh, I donated this for the challenge that ends today-



Is that not good enough to be considered a rig "geared towards crunching"? 50,500 PPD average for the 12th through the 24th, not bad compared to IONs dual Xeon rig he posted numbers from, which has a 57,600 PPD average for the 12th-24th.

Not to mention the i5 2400/H67 combo I have for the next give-away rig.

I got it from the generosity of TPU's crunching team. Just returning it to the team since I don't have room for it anymore. :lovetpu:

Oh, holy cow! Going to have to get my server up and running at my new place... Dual LGA1366 Xeons(which Xeons, I'm not sure. Going to have to run CPU-Z on it when the fresh install is done) with 8GB ECC RAM and five 250GB SAS HDDs in RAID5. Was trying to justify in my mind how I'm going to be running it 24/7 for a TS and fileshare server, well, crunching seems to be calling me now.

EDIT: Tell me, crunching folks: which (Windows) OS do you recommend for crunching on a server? It has SBS 2008, but was considering Win 7 Ultimate 64.

:rockout:

Linux (Mint or Ubuntu) do well for crunching on a server. I would defer to [Ion] or @twilyth if you need to run a MS OS on it.

Will the awesome ever stop pouring from this thread?
Of that I have my doubts.:)

Huh, I donated this for the challenge that ends today-



Is that not good enough to be considered a rig "geared towards crunching"? 50,500 PPD average for the 12th through the 24th, not bad compared to IONs dual Xeon rig he posted numbers from, which has a 57,600 PPD average for the 12th-24th.

Not to mention the i5 2400/H67 combo I have for the next give-away rig.
See. Not even 5 posts later.:toast:

Oh, holy cow! Going to have to get my server up and running at my new place... Dual LGA1366 Xeons(which Xeons, I'm not sure. Going to have to run CPU-Z on it when the fresh install is done) with 8GB ECC RAM and five 250GB SAS HDDs in RAID5. Was trying to justify in my mind how I'm going to be running it 24/7 for a TS and fileshare server, well, crunching seems to be calling me now.

EDIT: Tell me, crunching folks: which (Windows) OS do you recommend for crunching on a server? It has SBS 2008, but was considering Win 7 Ultimate 64.
I failed with my first attempt at win 7 ultimate 64 the other night. Ethernet drivers I believe was the cause. Tried booting from a Linux usb and it just hung forever without booting the preview let alone the actual mint install. My second atempt at win 7 64 went without a hitch but good lord all the updates, Ugh. After it was done I bare boned the os by removing aero, games, tablet support, Defender, most media features. Tweaked a bunch of services(shut them off or manual) Defraged the install after cleaning the discs. Been running for 12 hrs now so we shall see how well the return is. I plan to run for at least a week full throttle. If I can get Linux to install after that (prob a dvd this time around) I will run for another week to compare. My this is getting fun.

And this is a comparatively older one--a pair of Nehalem-EP X5672s. Sub-$250 too :)
But not as tidy or power-efficient as BarbaricSoul's Sandy-E setup.

I didn't mean to imply the current rigs weren't fantastic. Admittedly, I haven't been paying close attention to them as I've opted out.
