    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.

    nah think the combo of running a oc'ed 470 with a oc'ed Q9550 was too much for my 500w PSU :laugh:

    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 :D

    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 :D

    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 :D

    im thinking about building something like that for a dedicate cruncher/gamer rig for when friends drop by





    :rockout: hell yeah, almost started crying hahahaha, :banghead:

    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 :nutkick::p
