Yeah. Thanks cp.
Hey gents, looks like I will have funds to do an upgrade end of the month. if money's tight, then an AMD 620. But if I can stretch it, either a 965 with one of the 785G chipset boards, or a I5 750 on a really cheap MSI or Intel board.
Which would make the better cruncher?
I think the i5 as it will clock higher. WCG is all about speed.
Ok. Not much choice in boards though. Don't know if either are reasonable o/c ers.
I would go with the MSI.
Guys, anybody know what happened to ION? He hasn't been on since the 12th and as far as I know he was back from vacation.
I don't know, hopefully nothing happened.
Same here man.
I hope that everything goes well for him
I've got quite a list of people that have just dropped off the face of the earth, that I'd really like to know where they went too. I hope that Ion doesn't make that list. I'm guessing he's just been busy.
I'm starting my Masters thesis now, so b/t work, school and kids, I'm guessing my TPU time will easily be cut in half for the next year or so. No way around it.
Wow, I hope everythings OK. I just sent him a PSU for an X-mas present and I was hoping it would get put to good use. I have his address to send a letter if he does not pop-in in the next few weeks.
Yeah, I would like to see a few people back, but hey maybe they are on to better things.
Good luck one what you are doing Paul, you do what you gotta do
Damn, keep us posted if you do send a letter or something man.
He still crunshing , he is probably busy
Hopefully just Xmas and the New Year have taken it's toll and he is still in a drunken stupor in the Bahamas
I think he was back from vacation already though.
You guys still got me! One of them on that list is FordGt right?.. I've not seen him in awhile, but I did see where you stickied My Ez config post per FordGT Paulieg. So, you've talked to him?
I'll update that post to to reflect the new version.
nah, ford's still around.
I saw him post in a thread the other day, maybe like 2 or 3 days ago. So yeah he's around.
I ordered my psu and cpu yesterday, I must receive them Friday, January 22
I chose an AMD 620 for the low price but my next purchase will be a i7 (with my tax refund)
What is your opinion about the Thermaltake Toughpower 650 Watts (i'm not a big fan of thermaltake but for 70$ instead of 110$ I thought it was a good deal)
I just got a PM from stanhemi who was worried that something was wrong here. I'm not going to be able to get on TPU nearly as much this semester as I was last semester, school is busier for me so I have less time. I'd just like to reassure everyone, things are still going fine here, I'm going to continue to crunch, but my posts are likely going to be limited for now.
EDIT: I would just like to apologize for all of the concern about where I've been, I promise I won't keep you hanging like this in the future
Nice to know that your doing fine Bro! We just missed you here in the forums!
I'll try to get on more, but I've been busy recently, and, unfortunately, I have to put school at a higher priority than TPU.
Which is in my opinion, the right thing to do! A big cheers to you man and hope school goes well for you too!
