Update: welp I had a loss the other day, after a fortunate night at work, testing systems, building them and troubleshooting systems in HASS, get home to flick on my system and poof...she took a crap on me whilst I was out.
Anywho, come to find the thing isn't powering up, removed DIMMS, cpu and tried and nodda, also I removed the PSU and tested it in a dif old old old board I have and it powered up right away.....come to think of it....a while back I noticed a USB power surge balloon in windows, I was busy with other stuff at the time and disabled the notification about that one....whoops! (cause yep I forgot)....I think that has something to do with it.....anywho, getting my RMA together and sending to gigabyte...z77 ud5h (got when it purdy much went live) so I'll get a new one.
in the meantime, I'm gonna invest in a x79 mobo or something like that and possibly pick up a xeon or two thru my workplace, hopefully rather soon as I would like to get folding come sept 5th. hell if no xeons then I might grab a 3960x but those 2690s look sweet....would love to grab two of them or hell even quad would be something of a drooling ppd awe sight to see....anywho I'm done rambling but will be back in the game in no time.....
I love when I have a reason to buy new hardware test and play when not old but old hardware goes down...sad but oh well....hmmm so many options now....might grab something along the thunderbolt line and play with that....all in all regardless what I do, I shall start a build log when I have all my parts, thoughts in a clear and concise and semi concentric order and plan. *~cracks a beer open and takes a puff~* welp take care everyone, time to hit the sheets and then browse some more computer parts....today is payday!!
edit: either or...I'm getting my 3570k folding and getting some new **** too and fold that as well...yay...I'm excited to be building a new system....well actually 1 and 1/4 heh regardless, still fun!Edited by Doozy420 - 8/31/12 at 12:52am
