Poor Bill had a 'Coffee' incident!

Poor guy spilled coffee on his machine! :shocked: He got a 1/2 gallon of %80 isopropyl alcohol so I hope he can save his i7 950 with a pair of GTX480's. If nothing was burnt then he should be OK. :yesnod:

He just made the sub 3000 club too, think golf.;)

Ouch man, that's gotta hurt! That was an excellent video card. R.I.P. Welcome back. ^*^

Wow Bill, what a comeback! :shocked: ^*^ You're even folding at low power during the night which I thought was a nono.;) You didn't happen to replace your dead 480 with a 580? :whistle :drool: :lol:

I have a second PC online it is a small one that runs silently so i can leave it on overnight, I have been trying to get my hands on a 580 but they are as elusive as Bin Laden at the moment even the wholesalers here have none in stock.

So i roll along doing the best i can.


HAPPY NEW YEAR TO EVERYONE.
