Depends, I know that I pay about $0.27 per KWh, Manofthem about $0.37 per KWh, Vinska is somewhere in between that IIRC.
In us money!? That's preposterous. Where we moved from was $0.14 /kWh, which I thought was rather high. Plus meter fees and whatnot which are almost as much as the actual power cost

I know that my parents' plan includes "weekends and nights" rebates, maybe I got that too but I do not know for sure since I have the billing semi-embedded in the rent (if I use more or less than projected, I (get) compensate(d) (by) the owner of the building and not the electricty company). That is also why I said about, because $0.27 is the national average retail price (it is a small nation, so the average is close enough since corporate policies cannot differ much across such a small nation).

How much is power there?
At the current $ / € exchange rate provided by my national bank, it is 0.187$ per kWh
With this same exchange rate, it was 0.199$ per kWh until a couple of weeks ago

The price has been dropped a bit Recently. The government probably contracted to import more cheap[er] power from Belarus. At least, that was the reason for all the power price drops that occurred after the price increase spike we had when our nuclear power plant got closed.
And anyway... It is a bit hard to make a proper comparison when the $ / € exchange rate keeps fluctuating.

:laugh:
the only difference between ivy and haswell is the max tdp and the internal gpu is stronger. if you are using a dedicated gpu you dont need a stronger igpu and dont need a haswell.

But don't forget, Haswell FTW :rockout:

:oops:I hate to do this because it creates more work for @Norton , but I need to say thanks but no thanks to the motherboard. I already have too many irons in the fire. I also feel bad being such a small contributor and ending up winning substantial prizes two Challenges in a row. (that's not why I'm not taking it-I want it to go to someone who will use it)
Thanks everyone!:lovetpu:

:oops:I hate to do this because it creates more work for @Norton , but I need to say thanks but no thanks to the motherboard. I already have too many irons in the fire. I also feel bad being such a small contributor and ending up winning substantial prizes two Challenges in a row. (that's not why I'm not taking it-I want it to go to someone who will use it)
Thanks everyone!:lovetpu:
OK let's try something different.... If you crunched for the Team during the Challenge and you want the board then do the following:
- post here saying you want it
- pick a number from 1-10 (I have picked one as well)
- if your pick matches mine, you get the board
- if my number is not picked after 4 trys, the closest number gets the board

*Remember- board should be used for a cruncher build for you or to help get a family member/friend started in crunching

**UPDATE**
theonedub picked the right number and got the board... congrats!

Looks like you can have a FM2 motherboard if you want it!
OK let's try something different.... If you crunched for the Team during the Challenge and you want the board then do the following:
- post here saying you want it
- pick a number from 1-10 (I have picked one as well)
- if your pick matches mine, you get the board
- if my number is not picked after 4 trys, the closest number gets the board
