    Ok guys, I am back from the field, We had a wet soggy weekend training. I am still bummed about missing out on the 1055T, would have made a nice cruncher to get my numbers up but oh well life moves on. I just got back my Asus RMA and Corsair RMA so I will see if it will post and then let you guys know the results.

    Sorry to double post but I just got to work and I have been going over what systems I will have crunching and they are as follows.

    Athlon X4 630 with MSI K9A2 Platinum
    Athlon X2 4200+ with M3A78-CM
    Phenom II 550BE (Maybe Unlocked) with Gigabyte 880G

    So that leaves my 3800+ with Biostar TF7050-A2. What I plan on doing is posting these two on the Pay it forward thread as free for the price of shipping (Which is like 11$) and I will link the here to that post for the crunchers.

    I want to help out the crunchers and TPU as much as I can with this.

    Yea I made the mistake of throwing all my old Pentium III Cases away :(

    Im hoping to upgrade the 4200+ for another quad or six core soon when I can come across a good deal. I want to atleast have 12 or more cores pumping out PPD!

    It's overkill for her as she's using a dinky 17" LCD. Crap, now that I think of it those are similar specs as to what I had when I first started here. :laugh:

    LOL nice! I sold a that exact model number motherboard last year after getting it from a friend. It was a rock solid motherboard for stock settings! He had a similar setup such as a 9750 Phenom I 9850 blackedition, 4GB OCZ, evga 9500GT

    Well as my luck CONTINUES to run out more and more here lately, I just got the combo in today and first I opened the motherboard and found 3 our of the six clips holding the massive heatsink for the VRM, NB, and SB chipsets were missing!!! So then, I goto open the Phenom II 550BE box to check the CPU and its NOT a 550BE its a Athlon X2 3600+ WTF!!! It was just put in a 550BE box. Now Im out over 250$ worth of network switch gear trying to help a college guy out with his networking courses!

    Sometimes I think of giving up and sell it all.

    He said he's sorry and never looked in the boxes before he sent them to me (HOW DO YOU NOW LOOK AT WHAT YOU ARE SENDING SOMEONE?). He said he is going to send back my switches in the morning. Waiting a week then going through this stuff on another cruncher I had lined up makes me so mad. I take one step forward and 10 steps back

    He told me to keep the motherboard and 3600+ so after I finished inspecting, I setup the combo on a box and powered it on and to my surprise it posted fine so now I will have to find some screws, nuts, and rubber washers to hold down the heatsinks.

    Hi! I'm from the Internet
    Well I am starting to rack up some numbers. Albeit slowly right now. Crunching on 1 core right now and was able to do 10 packets in 24 hrs. I'll go ahead and run it full steam on this system as soon as the Seti packets get done.

    Its not good though. 250$ worth of switches plus fiber patch cables and a 6 pair fiber patch panel for a motherboard that I have to fix and a 20$ CPU + 40$ is not great. Im still really bummed out.

    Once the motherboard is back to normal I will have a MSI K9A2 Platinum and a 3800+ CPU for sale or trade :(
