That is the case Lauren choose for her new case.

The X6 is for my rig, and the mobo and ram I was looking at were these.

MSI 990XA-GD55 AM3+ AMD 990X SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 AT...

CORSAIR XMS 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 ...
Good choice, I personally have never owned an MSI board, only a socket AM2 one way back in the days when I knew nothing about PC's. :laugh: But I haven't heard anything bad about them. So I think as far a board you are okay. As far as RAM as good as that kit is, I just got a CL8 RipjawsX kit from G.Skill for like $64 shipped 2x4GB as well. Bro I absolutely love this RAM and without any effort, they run at 1866 MHz. :toast:

I'm a MSI guy. We use Asus at work thou.

I've had good luck with Corsair and G.Skill ram, but I'm going with a bit of a Corsair theme here.

I will also be putting the Athlon X2 up for sale here in a few days. I'd love to build a 4th cruncher but I just can't. I might have to downsize how many PCs I have in general. So it might just end up being My PC, Lauren's PC and the laptop. But we'll see.

I'm currently at two crunchers, my next step is to replace the 1090T with a 2600K cruncher. This way I should easily be in the 10k PPD area, and then depending on how it goes with the heat and space, I might add a 3rd cruncher. But I definitely can't do more than that because I don't have the space.

Speaking of boards though, I have had great luck with ASUS boards on AMD systems. I got 3.6 GHz on air out of my Phenom 9850 on a TT Big Water setup. Crappy WC'ing if you ask me but the ASUS M3A79-MVP Deluxe board helped me out big time, since them I've fallen in love with ASUS. Even on my 2600K rig, it's amazing! :respect:

Yeah, I have to say they work well but I prefer the way MSI's Bios is. Most of the Asus boards I've dealt with are a bit tricky to get to some settings. That and I hate that case intrusion BS.

MSI's are very good boards! As for the case intrusion on Asus boards; it can be shut down in the bios Ed.

I know it can. But every time I deal with one it's on by default. Which is a pain.

Got my 1055T into my main rig and had it crunching last night. Also got Lauren's rig into a new case and put my 945 in her computer. Transferred the "CruncherX2" into her old case and installed the Older Phenom and now it won't post and gets stuck in a booting cycle. I'll get it figured out after work today.

Will do. I'm pretty sure it was something stupid like leaving the 4 pin mobo connector unplugged or something. I was just too sleepy to deal with it last night. It was 6 PM when UPS showed up and I didn't get done working on computers until midnight. :shadedshu

Our work computers are fine. Most are C2Qs, or i7-870s. One is a Phenom II X4. It's just that most of the customers in our area are still holding on to their POS Dell P4s from the early 2000's.

It's nice to finally get some of them to purchase new SB i5's thou. They are always happy with their new machines. :D

Nice. Yeah our machines are all kinda different. Most of them have 2x2 GB or 2 x 4 GB. As for HDDs, they can be just about anything. Lol.

Hey gang. My numbers will be down this weekend. I now have a FX 8150 and a H100 to go with it. The 955b was in the the 990fXa-UD7 but after a bios update it will go back home into the M4A785-m. I also got 4x4 vengeancelp for the new cruncher. I think I may be the first crunching with this chip so a few days at stock and then just let me play.

I'm going too that place again so updates are open.
