Time to get the project back on track
I've actually had a few mishaps with it over the last 2 months of being MIA. Had some bad capacitors on my RIVE and when attempting to remove it to check everything I accidentally ripped off a pci-e slot because I forgot clips actually held the gpus in
. ASUS wants $120 to fix it, but have been too lazy to send it in. Picked up another from the egg that day which was DOA and cross shipped the next. Had all ram go bad as well which was RMAed with Corsair. Awesome service I do have to say. Had everything with in 2 days. Will have new OC numbers up over the coming week or so. Thanks to Intel's new awesome OC protection she's been getting tons of voltage and I'm nothing more than thoroughly impressed.
It seems since I've been gone there's been talk about enterprise SSDs. Plans are to inherit an OCZ R4 from our business for this project in May. Will have numbers and benches then for the SSD. Should be a nice addition. Waiting on GPUs kills me since these cards are beginning to suck it up. Would be nice for nVidia to let us really know what is going on. The GK110 chip needs to be out NOW!
My "Project Atlantis" build has been fully disassembled and parts are going to powdercoat this week after I submit our semester project.
Those who have watched this thread for the long haul will remember my murderbuggy project. Everything is running and mostly g2g. Aluminum body is currently under fabrication and had was able to put her to the test last week. Only issues that need to be resolved is forgetting that I "need" wipers and to find a way to stop monstrous exhaust flames, because you know trees like to catch on fire.
Fellow forum member exxistence is also in the preliminary stages of beginning a fully custom Danger Den Double Wide Horizontal build in preparation for Million Man Lan this summer, so keep your eyes open for that.
