    I hear you David. Lauren and I are looking for a new place ourselves. Just can't find a place we're happy with/can afford. :shadedshu

    Thankfully I supposed to get a raise to $20 an hour here in a little while. :D

    My power bill has not been bad at all. 172.79$ was our total bill for last month and thats not bad considering the AC has been set at 75 deg (which gets quite chilly sometimes) and I have three 24/7 crunchers (2000W of PSU power) and my main that I run from 6:30AM to around 11PM (750W PSU power). Then factor in large items like hot water, washer/dryer, stove, microwave 3 LCD tv's, 5 ceiling fans and MANY MORE.

    Power is why I'm gonna need to move 2 of my systems. Luckily I found homes for them in 2 secure locations that I travel by often and they will be with folks I trust not to fool with them. Will be moving them at some point after the reconfiguring is finished :cool:

    I may have to move some of mine to a different part of the house BUT I do have some wireless USB cards to get a good connection.

    Not sure, but at stock should be around 3k PPD.

    Power bill is why half my farm got stripped down and shipped to freinds. It also helps justify the new SB-E build that is soon to be built.:)

    No Brandon, even my 2600K is at 4GHz only. Helps with heat man, my little place gets hot fast.

    Ahhh I see! yea I am glad I put these water coolers on two of my crunchers! It knocks down the heat and the noise for sure!

    My thing is the AC Is off while I'm at work so temps go up a bit. When I'm home I have tons of headroom to overclock. It's just during the day, I have to keep that in mind. But I will watercolor eventually. I think I has a full loop actually ready to use, I just wanna invest in making it a little prettier. :)

    On sandy bridge, an H60-70 would be perfect as long as you had two nice 120MM fans to do a push/pull at midrange clocks. The 2600K @ 4.5ghz runs about 62-64 full load with only one 37CFM fan on the H50 clone

    I have a custom loop because I wanted to do a nice looking custom loop. Right now on air, it runs at 48-49* full load.

    Ahhh I get ya! Yea I did a full loop on my I7-920 but never really liked it too much. I may do a full loop again but the advances of the closed loop systems have got me wanting more of those.

    Closed loop systems are awesome man! I once had an H50 and loved how easy and maintinence free it is!

    Contemplating a H100 for my main 2600K :) I would like to push it further and crunch it full time as well. I could do 4 deltas on the rad and get VERY good temps.

    I'm considering building an intercooler/aftercooler of sorts for my air cooled systems by using an air/air type heat exchanger using the AC duct near the PC's in the Summer and the outside air in the Winter. It's still in the mental construction phase though.

    4 yrs of college engineering courses makes one think of such things :laugh:

    I had thought about creating a duct that would go from the crawl space to the PC some how cause most of the time its VERY cold even in the summer under the house.

    If you are struggling with heat, then open-air rigs near a window is my suggestion. Made a world of difference to having them inside cases.

    Also CPU temps around 50-60C tend to be ok without massively heating the room. Not like the days of running i7 920's at 85C through summer heat waves :laugh:

    It was some crazy times. 2x GTX 275's folding inside a HAF932 with a 3.8GHz i7. Also had a HAF 922 with same processor and 2x 460's. I had to sleep in the same room too.

    So happy when I sold all of it and went 2600K. Less heat, cheaper electicity and more PPD. More importantly, no dehydration, dry mouth...
