we are. Im in the process of putting a little monster together. along with my i7 and my soon to be athlon x2, together they should put some impressive numbers! I just gotta finish what im doing to my car, may take me about another two months, decisions decisions :roll:
We should delay the opteron build for a little while, 6 cores coming out soon, 12 cores same socket to come out 6 months latter, meaning initial system 12 cores, 6 months later 24 cores :rockout:

Guess who lives in baytown.... Teara :banghead:

true, but I might be putting something together before though, obviously much more inexpensive :)

SIDE NOTE: Just caught up with this thread......

First thing.......Take the High Road, always, every time.....

I have not read the referenced thread since all of this is not worth the time....Take the high road, and you are always good. It saves time.

Do what you do, focus on crunching to save lives and you are good to go. :END SIDE NOTE

The real post is that H3 or I can provide you with the custom avi you want. It is a good team thing to do. Let either of us know what you want.....We are trying to standardize this though. I know it won't happen, but hey.....:toast:

I'm buy-sexual.If I can't get it for free I buy it.
Back in the 80's I was a Try-sexual. I'd try anything sexual:rockout:

Hey about the hired guns: that implies being paid. Anyone here getting money or some other compensation to Crunch? If you are PLEASE share your secret :wtf:

This would be a great job...I just can't seem to find anyone willing to pay me to do it.

I admit at first I was just going to poop out some points and skeedaddle back to XS.

But I'm not so sure now. TPU's team is starting to blend. I actually find I am spending at least as much time here as anywhere else.

Plus it's a helluva lot easier to get me some pie:D

ANd oddly enough the buttholes brigade has motivated me to push the team here higher.

Alright guys just got home from work and saw that my i7 rig ran prime all day at 3.9. Waste of time I know, but I don't like my wu's erroring out. :) Those of you ahead of me, better get the tire track remover out. :D Here it is:



I've seen others asking for pics so I thought I'd take a quick shot of my garage set-up. My i7 is on the desk, thats a P5Q-Pro with a Q6600 at 3.7 and 9800GX2 on the shelf. You can see my kill-a-watt showing 764 watts for both rigs. Thats my trusty old P160 under the desk, the i7 will go in it eventually. You can also see my getto 38mm fan I mounted from the wall to blow across the 9800GX2. Works pretty decent, my folding temps with it are around 80c. They were over 90c with out it.

Also check out my cheap ass speakers for listening to music while I'm out in the garage. :laugh:

Wow, that looks very similar to my garage setup, except that my i7 sits on a Highspeed tech station.

So guys, I need your thoughts and opinions. For my secondary crunching rig, should I replace the Q6600 with a QX9650 in my DFI x48 board, or should I sell the Q6600 and DFI board and get another i7 and MB?
