    Somehow, the thought of a Death Star in near Earth orbit, makes me wonder where sewerage goes.

    Hi TR, Where to begin? I've been selling off a lot of excess computer parts to finance some needed upgrades. Building a new water cooled box and playing a lot of golf. Retirement has been good and living on a short golf course makes it that much better as I play almost every day.

    new rig: MSI 990FXA, AMD 955BE, 16GB Patriot Sector 7 1600, ABS 1100W psu, SB Audigy, 2X Evga 680GTX FTW w/EK waterblocks, Koolance 980 bay res/pump, Koolance 3x120 rad, shroud/fans, Koolance CPU 300 V-13 and 1/21n tubing.

    I have re-purposed everything except video cards/blocks. I even moded the Koolance 720 INX case by removing the hdd bay to make room for the vid cards. Still a work in progress but very near completion.

    Awesome machine! I"m glad you went with AMD processor. I still don't regret my Phantom II. I know Intel's are faster, but I'm having no problems whatsoever.

    I ran 5 AMD quads for a while. I will run up to 3 as I cut back on the folding some. I have always had 2 video cards in them as well.

    Wow, crazy! That motherboard must have 6 PCI-Express slots!
    I think the deathstar might be able to run on that ;)

    Sorry, just trying to "tie" our conversation into the post subject
