I would likely be inclined to RMA it after I got a different board in my sweaty hands.

BTW I finally figured out how to OC the rig you sold me (the Original Crunch Folding Rig!) and I have it at 2400 stable now.

Did you ever get anything better than that stable?
I would still go for an RMA.

And how did you get 2.4Ghz stable? I never got that far even.

Wow, crunch looks so awesome. Especially with all those Zalman 9500 heatsinks, they look awesome. I think I might have to get one.

Well I took a few shots of the rig as I toyed with it yesterday...amazing how much crud collected in the Zalmans in just a month.


Here's Crunch after extraction from his hard shiney carapace. Crunch looks the business...still warm from blasting me into 39th for the team effort. Taking Crunch out for service is a simple affair--I disconnect the Monitor and keyboard from the KVM, unplug the Daytons and PSUs fromt he powerstrip, Un cable the 3 HDDs in the exterior bay and lift out the entire deal with KVM still attached


Wrestled with Linux for a while with some minor successes--here's the DSL GUI and the pea**** colored text that reminds me of the old days...managed to get it on a USB and to boot from the USB drive...


By this time Linux is a fond memory as I charge along loading XP onto the 2nd of the 4 rigs...even with all the drivers and SP2 and related SW on disc, this all too familiar routine takes several hours per rig...if only I was up on how to slipstream the install...Hopefully this will last me until the next HW upgrade...


Note that it is now dark outside the window...I am on the home stretch...the fourth rig is coming online.


Everything recabled and checked out Crunch slips back into his shell ready for more Work Units...


Next dedicated Folding Farm in a Box is gonna get a bigger box

I must say that you really have some skills at building homemade cases. It looks really nice and clean.

load tmps are reasonable...I think Summer is finally easing off. I took off the top and noticed a pretty substantial drop in temps...which indicates a simple imodification to the case might be in order--the slot must be wider for better flow--maybe as much as 2 inches...which makes it vey tempting to redo the top altogether and fit the HDDs up inside.

This top would not be of the lovely teak though...as that is all gone pretty much. But I think some real glass in a wood frame would be a nice alternative.

Getting ready for the Raptor X upgrade this December...

What's nice about redoing the top is: besides solving the HDD issues it also gives me a chance to improve the cooling a bit. And I don't have to tear apart the rig and stop Folding to do it...

But seriously the next Crunch is gonna be in a bigger box...all the best OC mobos are ATX anyway.

Speaking of redoing the top I have pretty much settled on that as the next step to helping keep Crunch cool. With the current arrangement I am kinda stifling the flow--so by rasing the lid a few inches I can improve flow and slip some more gear under the lid.

Not sure if any of you have seen the nice monitor mod that was posted a while back...it got me to thinking about taking apart my old 17" and trying to mount it into the underside of the lid--and hinge the lid on pantograph hinges so it swings up and out and then I would have a built in monitor for the rig.

With an ultra flat keyboard I might even be able to put everything in the box!

How does that sound?

That sounds neat... turning Crunch into a somewhat not-so-portable laptop or something like that... LOL

You'll likely need something protective on that screen I guess... or be totally sure nothing can scratch or otherwise damage it...

I agree--the mod to which I refer encases the screen in acrylic...but something similar...

Aesthetically I like the idea of a nice piece of tempered glass (1/4") in a teak frame for the top of the lid--then a subframe of aluminum to hold all those pretty raptors up against the glass so I can watch them fidget away. Maybe under the Raptors I could sandwich the LCD screen...my monitor is pretty thin. So when it's closed it could be fun to watch and when it's open the back of the monitor would be ablaze with HDD activities...

I like the idea of modding the top, since it is something I can do without shutting the rig down.
