Oh there is nothing wrong with that Corsair AX power supply! They are great.

That Seasonic on the other hand is $80 less. Depends on the budget that RE has I suppose.

Well, I'm back from Vacation. Just swapped the i7-870 to Linux and looking to see what output it will conjure up now. Was getting close to 4k with Win7 Ultimate. It's amazing what a bios update will do for stability(especially a corrupted bios).

Hey guys, long time no see. Anyways been super busy with work stuff, and recently acquired a Supermicro H8QME-2+ motherboard with 4GB ram and 4 dual core Opteron CPUs. I have plans of building it up with six core CPUs and more RAM, and setting it up to crunch. I need to find a different case and heatsink's for it, as it's currently in a 1u case and is louder than sin.

Should be fun to mess around with. :D

Edit - I'm in need of a ATX style power supply with two 8 pin CPU plugs, anyone have recommendations?
If you have a PSU that can supply enough power, just get some 4-pin molex to 8-pin adapters or an 8-pin Y-adapter. That's what I did on each of my Supermicro dual 1366 boards and they work fine. In fact, one of them is cobbled together with splices and wire nuts. :/

Got the PSU replaced yesterday. Quick service from Corsair:toast:.

but now the HDD with the OS installed failed:banghead:.

Going for an upgrade. Placed an order for a Samsung EVO 120 GB for OS drive and 2 TB segate for other data.
Its funny both the drives are costing the same.

Anybody know where I can get a WIN7 SP1 pro/Ultimate 64bit, cheap?

I have decided that I have spent enough time fooling with my brother's computer. Fresh install is the obvious cure.

However, his OS was preinstalled on his Acer laptop. He has Home Premium but, I prefer the others.

I am booked for time and really should be in bed right now, gotta do the numbers post still! Any help would be greatly appreciated! :D

PM me if you have a copy you are willing to part with, also!

I have my three crunchers on an 8-port 10/100 switch, with the uplink going to a gig switch 25 feet away. The 10/100 switch decided to die yesterday, but I was able to take the uplink cable and go to my 4P cruncher. Brought home another 10/100 switch and swapped things around so they are all online again. At least I had the buffer full, and I should have some nice numbers tomorrow :pimp:

Hey guys, just wanted to say hi. I've been in the hospital for a few days and haven't been as active, though I've browsed a little bit. It's easier to browse on my Phone than to type, as the right arm with the IV keeps upsetting me.

So turns out I've had a bout of acute sigmoid diverticulitis and it was complicated by a slight micro perforation. No surgery at this point, but I'm stuck here til the scans show it healed up, which I'm hoping will be today. Need to talk to the GI Doc hopefully in the early am today; yesterday the GI doc woke me up at 6am and started talking medical while I was trying to wake up :laugh:

Anyway, I may not be active much til I'm back home since it's less comfortable, but I'll be back soon! And when I get back home, I have a new Project I'll be working on that I'll be sharing with the team soon :D

Til later :toast:

If you're in a pinch, you can install W7 without a key and you'll have 30 days to activate. You can extend that up to 3 times if you do a re-arm.

Just remember to press Next when the installer ask for a key; if you press omit you'll only have 3 days. Also uncheck the "Automatically activate Windows when connected to the internet" checkbox in the same screen.

Found a program that does an activation through KMS sites. Apparently, for the last six years, Microsoft has not closed the hole allowing for these sites to be accessed and the product code for your version is located and installed.

So, since I got him into Safe Mode, quite the chore, I talked him through a factory reset. That should solve some issues. Then, in a week or so, depending on me and the snail mail, I will send him an iso of Win 7 Pro and a copy of the windows down loader and boom, fresh, FRESH, install of a much better OS than Home Premium. Pro has some editing tools that home doesn't and thus can be streamlined a bit more.

I am looking forward to that, in a weird way. :rolleyes:

Anyways, I am now waiting for him to get through the "Factory Reset". Then it is still a few hours of updates and downloads before we are ready to set a good restore point. If all works as planned I can put the Pro Upgrade off for a bit, I love my brother but, it is a chore getting him to shut up long enough to listen to instructions.

He got us to this point by not following a very clear instruction, Do NOT allow anyone Remote Access to your computer, except me!!

Well, he thought he was talking to a Verizon rep and ended up completely effin' screwed!

I cleaned up what I could and then, somehow, he gave Windows Media Center complete control of everything, by default.

Meaning, nothing would open, including the Control Panel control of Windows Features!!

So, it is now 5 hours later and we have a fresh factory setting going down.

This will undoubtedly last into tomorrow!! :(

Hey guys, just wanted to say hi. I've been in the hospital for a few days and haven't been as active, though I've browsed a little bit. It's easier to browse on my Phone than to type, as the right arm with the IV keeps upsetting me.

So turns out I've had a bout of acute sigmoid diverticulitis and it was complicated by a slight micro perforation. No surgery at this point, but I'm stuck here til the scans show it healed up, which I'm hoping will be today. Need to talk to the GI Doc hopefully in the early am today; yesterday the GI doc woke me up at 6am and started talking medical while I was trying to wake up :laugh:

Anyway, I may not be active much til I'm back home since it's less comfortable, but I'll be back soon! And when I get back home, I have a new Project I'll be working on that I'll be sharing with the team soon :D

Til later :toast:
Get well buddy!!

Just read up on it and it seems that it is a fairly common ailment that has a nearly 100% survival rate, in our western culture.

Enjoy the low fiber diet, then start eating more nuts and corn!!

From the Wiki page,

Diet[edit]
Foods such as seeds, nuts, and corn were, in the past, thought by many health care professionals to cause or worsen diverticulitis.[4]However, there is no evidence that suggests the avoidance of nuts and seeds prevents the progression of diverticulosis to an acute case of diverticulitis.[5] It appears that a higher intake of nuts and corn could in fact help to avoid diverticulitis in adult males.[5]

You know - it's weird: the word diverticulitis popped into my head about 6 or 7 hours ago, which puts it about the same time you posted this.

Take it easy, Matt. There's nothing more important than your health :toast:
