Folding@Home 20th Anniversary Folding Competition - Lots of prizes up for grabs !


Recommended Posts

I ironically, for once, didn't have any crashes.  But, most of my rigs are stock ish anyway, I mean I guess PBO with IF / Memory overclock could be argued as not stock.  That EK AIO looks neat, and considering my current build plans it'll definitely be finding a use so :wheee_orange:.  Still folding when not gaming, gotta help build the team back up. :)  That was a lot of fun, hopefully next round I'll have another Ryzen / RX580 rig setup to join too if my CPU ever ships.

PSA:  If you have been folding since the start and your systems haven't crashed yet, they are stable.  That is all, have a great day.

I can safely say i had the most crashes out of everyone, i'll take that award.

 

Also repasted my 980tis today and got the temps back in check. Nice and clean. What isnt clean is my apartment. Dropped my 570X Side panel 3 inches onto my desk as i went to set it on the case and it exploded like a ballistic missile. I had glass 20ft across my apartment. And of course everyone is out of stock on them. If anyone has a Corsair 570X Case / Side panel they'd be willing to sell hmu xD.

RIP sidepanel...

I can imagine the mess, have fun with all the glass you'll find the next few months :classic_blink:

Yea those are the only 2 i found also. Corsair has apparently been marked out of stock for months on and off. Hopefully i get a notification of a restock soon. I asked their chat and he said it wasnt discontinued at least. MNPC is the only instock one and 50$ for a technically used panel plus shipping is just a bit much. Id kinda rather just buy the case during a sale and hijack a panel lol. We'll see as the weeks go by i guess.

Very glad to hear you recovered. I hope you were not ventilated. Take extra Vit D and some ibuprofen for a bit. COVID is very inflammatory and causes lasting cardiac damage. If you have any questions unanswered by your primary care doc, shoot me a PM.

Figured I'd update, thanks again E and the sponsors!  The EKWB 240 AIO arrived safe and sound today.  Debating on putting it on my 3600 or saving it for my future x570 build.  It's too pretty to cut up so I won't do that to it yet.  :p  

It's still in the box, so sorry, no pictures yet.  Don't want to mess up the wrapping till its time.

Rest assured, it'll be seeing a good thermal load here soon enough. 🔥

Did either of you receive any kind of confirmation that it shipped before hand, or did it just show up?

I did get an email from the carrier before it was shipped, notifying me that a package was on its way, and the email matched the package so yes.  I didn't know that's what it was until it arrived though lol.

You should schedule all of the events 5 years in advance, and pay out the prizes 5 years before the events start. 

 

Now what's your brain doing?
