@ThE_MaD_ShOt - I like Eve's low cut, sexy case. I think she's in danger of a wardrobe malfunction though. Please post pix if that ever happens. ;)

And I have to ask about that white bucket in one of the photos. I hope you're giving your rigs proper bathroom breaks and not making them use that bucket. :D

Seriously though, very impressive farm. Very nice!!!
Gotta watch out for eve she isn't what she seems. LOL




Also they get there state mandated breaks and are allowed to use the big potty.

I definitely dig the mini-farm. That's really the best option until you build or buy something to specifically hold that many components. It's almost worth getting a short rack on wheels (20U?) along with some 4U chassis'. What you have costs a lot less though. :p

@BUCK NASTY - I believe the last time I seen your rack it was full of GTX260 or GTX270? And it didn't have the P4's.

Yep, I had a mixture of GPU's back then. Kinda funny how it coming full circle and I'm converting back to GPU's for F@H again. The Pande Group can kiss my arse!

Yep, but fortunately I'm in a pretty good financial position to support this conversion. Plus the 4P rigs will switch to WCG or be sold to another cruncher(wink, wink everybody:laugh:).

Might be a good opportunity to replace a bunch of these single-socket systems with something faster :)

Dude, you have too many rigs if the only useable space is on top of the Kitchen cabinets. LOL. Nice work Kai!

Oh, there's plenty of other space, but this spreads out the heat/noise/electricity demand across more space. I could easily fit upwards of a dozen under the bed....only issue is I'd have to stretch an extension cord across the floor and I'd rather not do that.

There's something to be said for moderation. I've gotten caught up in the points race myself and probably spent enough money over the years to buy a new car - not to mention the cost of running that gear. At some point it just becomes a compulsion instead of a hobby. But each individual has to judge when they cross that line for themselves. Unfortunately that's hard to do.

OCD runs in my family. It's rampant actually. But no one thinks they have a problem. I have one cousin who had to collect every top 40 or 100 or whatever song/album, etc that came out. I haven't talked to him in years but last I did, he had tens of thousands of vinyl albums and cds in his "collection." But no OCD issues. Nope. No problem at all. My mom held on to news papers that were several years old saying that she was eventually going to read them and she "collected" all manner of tchotchkes. But again, no OCD issues there.

Personally I'm happy to admit my OCD since by recognizing it, its no longer invisible and can't subvert me w/o my knowledge. I still might give in to it from time to time, but if I denied it, I wouldn't be able to fight it at all.

Oh I agree with you totally. I think I crossed the line right about the second 8350. Which is why after the challenge I am going to spool a few rigs down and just run full force for challenges.

My "new" 3770K cruncher:





It's the 3770K I had on my main rig for a year but I just didn't like the power figures I was getting from it while crunching but taking into account all the hardware I had on my tower that wasn't surprising.

I then got the itch for an AMD rig and hatched a plan: Take apart the rig, get an ITX board to make a dedicated cruncher and build an FX rig for gaming. Initially I was considering an H61 ITX board but came across an Asrock Z77X-ITX with a damaged USB 3.0 connector that fit in the bill :toast: I didn't want the cruncher all sprawled out on a table or something so I got an Elite 110 for it. As for cooling I still had my busted Kuhler 620 that Antec and Digitalife just kept kicking back and fort the RMA for and managed to fix the clicking noise following the instructions on this video (you can see the tape on mine on the top-down shot):


I'll keep it running stock for 24/7 crunching, on challenges it's going to be OCed to 4Ghz :D

I can't decide if you need a bigger PSU or a smaller case ;)

Tidy setup there :toast:

The Antec 620 does a great job--although I have a H50 on my 3770k. Given that it does ~5.5k PPD for <100W I love it. Great output and nearly silent :D
