    That's the full ATX one (I had 2 of them- Mad has 1 of them now)- my new one is mATX :cool:

    They look better with the black heat sinks

    @ GreiverBlade- a couple of our crunchers/folders have run those boards :toast:

    Someone took those heatsinks off and tried to strip the paint off and failed miserably then they tried some harsh sand paper which was mega fail. :shadedshu

    It looked like pure shit but preformed good with the I7-920 with clocked 1.31V 4Ghz 24/7 crunching

    iiiiiiiffff i would won the Euromillion ... i would be a cruncher who would have a couple of those ... but murphy likes me and loto doesnt... pretty ridiculous isnt it?

    edit ... if i had won the euromillion i wouldnt take a couple of 7990/titan ... i wouldnt go for cheapo card ... but rather some ASUS ARESII dual 7970ghz ed... limited to 1k sample you say? naahhh ship the 10% to me!!!

    This is what my SLI3 overclocked a 980X to using the HyperX T1 ram set that's waiting to go into my next build :)
    Crunching 24/7 at this clock too!

    Hat said on his FS thread that the I7-920 I am getting does 4Ghz 1.3V so I am hoping this board I am getting is up to that challenge

    Maybe they were trying to increase the surface area of the heatsink.:p

    There has been a thought in my mind, but I don't think it is a good idea, I suppose. The proposal would be to have a CEP2 challenge from 6-13 oktober (letting the challenge run (more or less) in parallel to the World Solar Challenge 2013), but because of practical reasons we probably won't do that. Not everyone has an internet connection capable of doing (many) CEP2 WUs and I am not able to asess the researchers ability to suppy enough WUs during a spike in crunching activity; especially if we will attempt to seek a wider audience than only those teams already crunching for WCG.
    So if such a challenge will be there, it will be similar to the Mothers' Day Challlenge I suppose, w.o.w. only asking existing WCG members to join.

    So, will we consider a CEP2 challenge to be held in that period and if we do, will we be only asking current WCG teams or will we be asking other BOINC teams to join the challenge as well?

    October is a good month for a challenge- we could do all projects but with a caveat that CEP2 has to be run as well. Would you want to follow the World Solar Challenge 2013? (ex-10/19-10/27).`

    You're free to start a planning thread in the WCG section here to discuss like we've done in the past. As usual- count me in :)

    Hey team, be sure to check out the latest giveaway: Call of Duty Ghosts!

    Unfortunately there are no bonuses for WCG members, as this really isn't my own giveaway (hosting but not supplying), but I would like for all to share in it. Thanks guys :)

    I am thinking of sending my phenom 965 off to the pastures so to speak. I am becoming more concerned with ppd/watt and it does not produce in that area. My 5800k produces roughly the same if not a bit better ppd for a total system usage power of 150w. I have a spare lga1155 motherboard that just needs an rma. I think it might be in my best interest to find a lga1155 cpu to fill it after that.

    What do you guys think of ppd/w?

    An i5 >3Ghz would give you a nice 4K. VulkanBros' 3470s were giving him 4.2K

    AMD setups are more about ppd/$ than ppd/watt. For the price of 2 Intel setups you can put up 3 AMD crunchers.

    Well the reason I got it in the first place was to be steam roller ready. That is taking forever though and my concern is becoming more about ppd/watt.

    PPD/W also ends up coming down to PPD/$, since it means less cost in your electric bill. I've been pretty lucky, too in that I've gotten some awesome deals on 3770K CPU's, including a couple that were less than you can get an FX-8350 for retail.

    Look around for a 95w 1035/1045T.... my 1045T's seem to pull 3.5-4k ppd @ stock and the chips run pretty cool. Should improve your ppd/w :)

    Guys! I still got plenty of stuff in my FS thread, I also added a 235e 45W dual core CHEAP! MAKE ME OFFERS and I will do payments and deals for TPU crunchers!

    Yesterday my 4P setup did 27k points on 35.5 days of runtime--assuming that it should be capable of 31.5 days of runtime/day (reasonable, IMO) that translates to 24k PPD :D

    Certainly a well spent $650 :)

    is that good? :p

    j/k :D that rig is running sweet- nice and quiet and the only thing that seems to get warm is the psu. I do have it in a fairly open space in the basement so it will likely run a little louder/warmer in your dorm....

    That's fine--we also have an AC unit here and I think it should do very nicely indeed. That should go very nicely with all of the i7s :)

    giving the i5 2400 several hours off :( I just dont trust that Tt TR2 500w for long term 24/7 usage and its already gone a week straight. I need a 80+ psu asap :p

    also i should have a laptop project later today :O i7 Asus with a GTX 560M and 12gb ram. It needs some cleaning and a new dvd drive, but for the price im getting it at its a steal if its fixable :p (ps $150-200 depending how much work it needs, this is the model http://www.asus.com/ROG_ROG/G74SX/#specifications ) G74SX

    Laptop in possesion :D there is a few horizontal lines on the screen and it needs to be cleaned proper on the inside (prev owner had many cats and never took it in for cleaning services). New screens are about $100, so i dont mind investing in that. It also needs a new DVD drive. Im thinking $150, $200 tops for payment as this laptop needs a decent amount of $$ put into it. After i get it running proper i want to start doing WCG on it :p

    You silly, the lines come from possibly broken solder joints or other abnormalities in the screen. ;)
