Glad to hear that! Looks like you and Brandon both added an x58 system lately
One more to add.... Rampage III Extreme w/i7-970
Pic of the new setup- running in my HAF 932 until a permanent case is found:
Looks pretty right there, nice to see! But I bet that HAF looks mighty empty inside
But does it look "HAF empty?" (waits for the sound of two drums and a cymbal falling off a cliff).
Hopefully I will have my X58 up by the first of next week. I have to order a single stick off preema DDR3 to make a full triple channel kit but while its on the way I will run 2x2GB DDR3 1333mhz.
One thing worth asking about is, does anyone have a H50 (or compatible) 1366 mounting laying around? Would need the backplate and top plate with screws? If not I will probably use my Evercool Transformer 4 that I got from CP 2 years ago which he also ran on a X58 with good results.
Im going on holiday to france, tomorrow . my i5 will be crunching the whole time
Couldnt get my q6600 to work though. seems the motherboard/cpu suddenly died. I will try again when I get home.
It seems I went over the #10k overall WCG rank mark and reached #15 for my own country. Both last night. Heh...
Also, forgot to mention - last week I gave my [almost] dedicated cruncher an extra 100MHz kick in the clockspeed and added one more stick of RAM as that single stick just looked too lonely...
Well go figure! Bad news on the X58 board that came in the mail! I got comformation that my CPU would be here tomorrow and seeing as the motherboard was deliver while I was at work had me excited...... until I pulled it out of the box and noticed the 6-8 bent pins in the socket......
I have had a string of bad luck getting a full cruncher going and now I have to complain to the seller on ebay that his "new refurbished" motherboard is not so new and not so refurbished....
I feel like giving up so many times
Did it have a socket protector installed or not?
Don't Give UP!!!! Hang in there and get her crunching!
Sorry it's been such rough going lately though
Here is full image shots of the socket and yep the socket protector was on.
Those don't look too bad. Get a pair of tweezers and man-up!
I got a sewing needle and a magnifying glass and go the worse ones semi straight but I will know tomorrow if it will post when my CPU gets here.
You could be lucky and just have bent VCC/VSS pins, which are plentiful. I haven't looked at the datasheet for LGA 1366 so I could be wrong.
I just noticed DSFL has disappeared from here:
And from here:
WCG Performance Chart
It's no secret they went intermittent a little while ago, we all know that. But when did they pull the plug? I didn't see any kind of announcement on this.
(and according to WCG's site, DSFL still had active work two days ago (2013-08-15). So yeah, this was kinda sudden.)
Aww well, I suppose I'm stuck with an Emerald DSFL badge...
"wuts dis new 'p22' project I see in the performance charts? Aww Gee Wiz, I am getting excited now!"
My c2d6300 machine that I have been trying to get crunching for awhile... I tried again last night. I put the system together and... the cpu started smoking and so did the plug powered into the cpu 4pin. I can't pull the 4 pin out of the cpu plug. I think the psu died. It is still in warrenty too. Corsair c600.
Gee, that sucks, man.
Well another hiccup in the X58 build... The CPU was shipped overnight express and guess what.. NOT ARRIVING TODAY! So I am guessing monday is the day it will come in unless they lost it.
Smoke and fire is a bad sign [/obvious]... hopefully the psu didn't fry everything :shadedshu FYI- I believe Corsair will replace components that have been damaged when their stuff goes bad.
On a related note- Ion's 4P will be idle for a little while. The Linux Mint installation got corrupted and I'll need to reinstall to get the rig back running again... won't have time to mess with it until this evening
Contact Corsair Brandon. Chances are they may send you a complete Intel mounting kit free or just for the shipping cost. Corsair's customer service is honestly second to none man.
Yep, I would try a processor in the board to see if it boots. Them don't look all that bad really. Could very well still make contact.
Jeez you really are having some serious shitty luck with this build bro!
Keep your chin up my man, it will get better!
Anyone heard from Ion?
It's a bit unusual that he hasn't logged on in a few days
It's possible that he's tied up getting set for the new school year- I'll give him a call Monday if he doesn't post on the site by then....
He is probablly just tied up with the move to school right now. That or he ran off with a wealthy older lady.
Most likely he's involved with the move- I was expecting a dozen PM's when his 4P magically turned into an i7-930 overnight
Waiting on word from him to see if he wants me to redo the Linux install and restart it or just pack it up and ship it...
EDIT- He's back!
Such is life
I've been hella busy this past week getting ready to move back in at school, and my brother got home Thursday after a month in Montana, so I have been otherwise engaged recently.
The good news is, now I'm back at school with the wonderful free electricity that it brings
Thus, my farm is mostly set up again. I have:
Three i3 2100s (gonna set up the fourth ASAP)
The OCed 3930k
OCed 2600k, 2700k, and 3770k
A C2Q Q6600
Two mobile i7s
Some awesome pictures, I know
OMG! Don't remind me of corrupted installs *knocks wood*
