The waiting is the hardest part

I decided to rebuild foldingfish with an 1156 i7 setup to boost my folding output. Going to try the bigadv flag on 8 cores...

I started buying bits and pieces as I had the money. Got my ABS Dark Beret 850W PSU (a beautiful beast btw). I grabbed an ASRock P55 Extreme so I can use my DD waterblock with 775 mounting. Picked up 8GB of Gskill 1600 Ripjaw RAM. All I needed was an i7 860. Bid on fleabay and picked one up for $240 shipped... Waited a week and figured it should arrive any day. Disassembled my q6600 rig and sold off the parts... It has been 4 days since I took my rig down and still no 860! It has been 2 weeks and it has not arrived... No response from the seller. I know it will get here soon, but the mailbox has become like a terrible Christmas experience every day. I come home from work, run to the box and find it full of ****e I don't really want. The only thing I hope to see there is not...

Tom Petty was right! The waiting is the hardest part.

Aw man, that's painful for sure! I'm getting my i7 motherboard and RAM this week (I think), going to have to wait until I have enough money to get the processor. I say setup Folding Fish back and keep it folding until the new processor arrives!
I sold the processor and ram, still have the 780i and the TX650 in the for sale thread.
On thursday I ordered DDR3 RAM and 750HX to run stuff, according to UPS it was scanned as arriving in MY TOWN last night at like 11PM, I wish I could just go pick it up from UPS store but I"ll probably have to wait til monday for it to come to my house :-(

At least it will pay off in the end. I wondered why you were selling parts for foldingfish. Nice to see its gonna be a ppd monster soon!
It'll be here before you now it and you'll have a monster. I want so how well bigadv works.

i've been thinking about messing around with an x3440 so that I can try out -bigadv, but then I'll need another 4gb as well.
