Joined Just then
That was very inspiring ~ thanks
Well guys, it's looking like I might have to start crunching only during the day now for the most part. The power bill finally came around and bit me in the arse.
When it cools down soon I'll go back to crunching at night as well.
woke up, first thing, huge headache, then....hmm whys there no music from my computer, then go over to it, and it just smelled of burnt hardware, iand i was like FUCK FUCK FUCK FUCK !!!!!
then i swappede everything
i almost cried
and then!!!! the post woman came with a NICE package
containing a psu and other goodies
plugged the new psu from KieX in, and BAM, it worked
What a coincidence she stepped by, a bit too much hehehe.
nah think the combo of running a oc'ed 470 with a oc'ed Q9550 was too much for my 500w PSU
but yeah it was damn lucky she came, didnt expect her until tomorrow
Oh dear. Looking in my Thermaltake Armor case I see... an Antec 500w. Well the load from the wall is about 250w including the TFT so that won't go anywhere
nah, i was pushing it for around 480w, shouldnt be a problem, but its been hot tonight i think, dry throat and such, so it might just have been too much for it haha
im just happy it didnt kille anything else
you should be good, no need to worry, antecs are good psu's
Trust me, I wasn't Was able to trade my Antec Earthwatts 430 for a EW 500, considered the efficiency is at its highest around 50% I hit the sweet spot now. Doing everything to hold back the power draw while still maintain a powerful system
what you got in the system?
Glad the rig is back Don, That post must have made you're day.
A BUUUUUUUUUUUUG. Just kidding.
That X2 555 BE C3. Stock 3.2GHz @ 1.43v, now 3.2GHz @ 1.25 with 4 cores enabled under a Corsair H50, can't OC right now cause I have some strange memory issues (4x1GB OCZ Reaper 10666, CAS6) and a HD5770 undervolted but almost at stock as well. Keeping the temps nice and low.
thats a nice decent system you got there, should handle most if not every game pretty well
im thinking about building something like that for a dedicate cruncher/gamer rig for when friends drop by
hell yeah, almost started crying hahahaha,
@ jejking I just posted pie and you my friend are getting fat.
Oh noes. I need more situps and magic Bruce Lee style crunches, fatty fat fat!
You should, it's a very good system and also quite cheap. Handles everything you throw at it pretty easily
Nice edit jejking, I must log off to let the other rigs have internet and report for a friend.
you can delete posts, just go to the edit and then there should be a delete option somewhere
yeah ive had bothe the pII x4 and dual 5770s before, loved it, then i went i7, and back to PII, and now Q9550
so i change hw every 3 months or so, or whenever i can afford it and need to/want to
Don got real lucky on that one
very much indeed
and thx again to KieX for a great deal on the psu and the other stuff great guy
The reason I won't have much of a PC budget for a while...
