    I lol when I seen your typing haha

    I still dont know what it says but that's what the imagination is for I guess lol

    So what time till that's all she wrote end?

    Edit the CPU i got replaced is as close to the same batch as can be.

    I didn't even screw with it. I popped it into the socket and set the oc settings i had saved in the bios and ran some benches and temps and everything are (is) almost identical. God I should go buy a loto ticket tonight :roll:

    three words:
    DAMN FRIGGIN HEAT

    with this heat and that overclock, my CPU temps are going by 10°C/18°F more than I'd ever want it to reach. In other words, I am worried that I might damage my CPU :(

    but f*** it, let's crunch!

    ahahaha!
    I haven't closed any of my windows for even a bit for the last 3 days.
    (Had to close 'em a bit three days ago due to a thunderstorm)
    So yeah, not much left to open anymore... and by "not much", I mean "nothing" :(

    Normally I turn my computer off at night but I think I'll let it run. It can contribute about 8 more hours worth of work to WCG and Steam is downloading >25 GiB worth of games so, it's win-win.

    Bumped my 8350 to 4.8ghz yesterday, and turned CnQ off. the stupid thing had it throttled to 4ghz. Running 100% load on all my machines, got fans on everything, turned up full blast!


    Edit; that titan would be epic. I don't meet the requirements tho, I think the winner is supposed to have 5 million points
