    I like it man! At least your mATX isn't boiling itself away to death like my one was :laugh:

    Woah! Good to see the full house. That's some good hardware in there. Makes me even happier to have this case now, cheers :toast:

    I think the only differences are no turbo on the i3 and lower clock speeds.

    I have an old P4 stitting here. Would it be worth setting it up as a folder?

    my old p4 3000MHz @ 3600MHz gives me 400-450 ppd but produces a lots of heats. I want to remove it from my farm it sucks too much power/heat for little ppd

    from a points and helping the cause perspective, of course it's worth it, anything is. But for performance/cost it's not. Gives you about 500 a day and it gives you tons of heat.

    Thats the problem with older hardware, uses too much power for what it produces. The i5 I just got going is only pulling 120 watts according to my kill-a-watt. I'm guessing that it will be about 1800-2000 ppd. I have over 1200 points pending right now with just about 12 hours of run time.

    Yeah, anything helps you get points, but is it really worth it?? The heat is what bothers me the most though.

    Awesome rigs everyone, keep them coming!
    @TheMailMan: probably not, P4s are terrible for crunching because of the high power use and low output. Anything is better than nothing, but an i7 uses maybe 50-100% more power, but does 10x the work

    My new, but old i7 Cruncher, same one I had before. It's back to papa :D

    I'm eventually getting rid of this PSU, too loud! I'll get something nicer to compliment the rack :D

    Yes it is a NZXT CS-NT-BETA-EVO Black ATX Mid Tower Computer Case. Inside is ...

    Gigabyte GA-MA790X-UD4P AMD 790X AMD Motherboard
    AMD Athlon II X4 630
    XIGMATEK Dark Knight
    Galaxy GTS 250

    A second Galaxy GTS 250 that crapped out is sitting beside the monitor.

    Above it is a CM 922 case with a MSI K9A2 Platinum system running a AMD Phenom 9950 and (3) GTX 260 video cards. I will eventually use that case for my 24/7 rig. First I need to decide if I will use the Danger Dan case for the MSI rig or get another case that will comfortable hold the GPUs.

    To the left of the NZXT case is a CM Gladiator 600. It holds a Gigabyte GA-EP45-UD3P motherboard running a Q6600. That CM case can barely fit the (2) 8800GT video cards that I'm using.

    Thank you sir :toast: Will look better soon :D

    Looking good man, can't wait to see it crunching, the H50 looks great inside black interior cases :rockout:

    Naw, I just hooked it up for Windows installation and removed it afterwards. It's just a cruncher, I won't be using it unless for benching so I won't need one. In case I do I have a USB one and I have a SATA one.

    From where FIH DON linked you too :toast: They are great.
    Love them, I popped them in, set them to 1600 @ 8-8-8-24 1T, 1.6v. Run strong and stable at advertised settings with not one drop of sweat getting them there.
