    Aye, tell Toxic that there's no need to apologise for not doing the news. I don't know what that nutter's done to his rig, but I hope he can sort it out easily :)

    Afternoon chaps :o

    Thanks for being patient i got the itch to get cracking friday and it took wayyyyy longer than i had imagined, spraying cutting yadadada etc etc.

    By far the biggest pain was installing windows and getting it to recognise all 4 gpu's that took 24 hours alone :mad:

    But its all up and running and as soon as seti comes back online this evening i can get cracking, i am whacked out and intend to stick my feet up for a few hours and watch a movie or summat to wind down.

    Build is 90% done i look forward to your comments and criticisms but take it easy i was a watercooling virgin afterall :eek::D

    Glares @ Mr Biffa :p:p

    Let me know what you think i need the input to learn for the next time :)

    If yas promise not to beat me to a pulp and let me off with the news i will get cracking on a fiendishly difficult competition idea that was brought on by my m8 "the laughing toaster"

    The xeon L5640 hexxadodah was fine Mr Grimgoth sah, it was windows that gave me the headache :)

    Welcome back Mr TTB. It's been peaceful without you :D

    That new setup of yours looks beastly, well worth the effort.

    I completely agree; that build is incredible in both looks and cruncheriness! (Is that a word? It is now.)

    Congrats Tony, and good to have you back :D

    Badge? No, but you do get a new set of chains to keep you locked in your cell to replace the ones that you've spent ages gradually filing down. It's a godsend actually, as rusty metal chafes like mad after a while.

    I hope it's not contagious either; I don't really want rig[or] mortis.

    Don't worry, I've already got my coat.
