That's what I thought!
I maybe in the market for a 2600K soon, IF anyone has an extra chip laying around I may trade you my sig combo (with maybe 2GB stick depending on chip im offered) for your bare 2600K chip.
My wife is picking me up a ASROCK Pro3-M Z68 board!
My Low voltage clocking I7 920 would make someone a GOOD cruncher!
January/February I may need to scale down my farm. If so there will be a few 2600K's going round for a nice price.
EDIT: Depends on a lot things, mainly whether I pass my work probation or not at the end of December... then how much a new place is gonna cost me. 2012 is going to be a rocky ride.
Definitely keep us posted and let us know if we can help in anyway.
Got the CruncherX2 into a case today, which seems to have improved temps. o.0 I think where I was keeping the tech bench prevented warm air from escaping properly.
Anyways, until I get a better cooler for it will only be crunching at 80%
Well if you do end up parting out that rig Brandon I would be very interested in the x58 i7 920
Or I am looking for a x58 i7 of some sort very, very soon if anyone has an extra they wish to sell.
Good luck dude. You're probably safe though right? I don't know how it is where you are, but generally they can you before the end of your probation if they don't like you.
One thing I've learnt about business is that you should assume nothing and prepare for everything. Perhaps I'm being overly cautious but rather that than find myself stuck in a rut for not planning ahead properly.
I probably wont part out so if i dont find someone that wants to trade I guess I will have to send my wifes christmas present back to newegg
If you don't find someone willing to do a trade, you could part the mobo, chip, and ram out for enough to grab a 2600 though. Just a thought.
I think it will be kind of tough to find someone that wants to basically downgrade. Of course there may be a few that have extra 2600's around and would like to get a full combo.
Good luck none the less man.
Edit: Hey Brandon, check with Audituner man. I just seen that he has a 2600 for sale man. http://www.techpowerup.com/forums/showthread.php?t=155872
I dont expect anyone to downgrade, I know alot of these benchers have a handfull of chips that would love to trade just bare chip for a X58 combo (CPU, Motherboard, 1 stick ram)
Well its now offical! I have a Z68 board on the way! Now to get the X58 combo up for trade on TPU when I get home for pictures.
Hope you can figure it out soon bro.
I just got offered a 2500K but I really want a 2600K, I am going to hold out
i wonder how Ion is doing, also blkhogan. been way too long since we heard from them
ION is pretty much a lost case, can't get in touch with him. blkhogan, has anyone heard from him?
Hi Peeps. I just joined your team yesterday. I hope you guys have room for one more wcg cruncher. My old team just sort of imploded a few months ago, granted it was a small team, but it just didn't seem to be any fun with me being the only cruncher that was still crunching wcg. ....... so.. Hello
Welcome aboard! There's a great group of people here and in the Folding section, if you have any questions don't be afraid to ask.
I'll have to admit, I saw the little blurp about TPU on the stats page at Free DC (a stats site I use) and after that I did lurk on your forum for a few days before I decided to join up with you guys. It seems so strange to see crunchers interacting with each other. My old team only chatted on AO...hell IM .... Ithink I could be happy here.
Stick around, this place is hella fun.
its a family, we take care of eachother, true story
Welcome! Make this place a home
+1 to the above. We're glad to have you!
