    Greetings from Sydney to Perth, from one WCG 24/7 cruncher (rickjb) to another!
    I've had some hardware failures with my Q9650/GA-EP45-UD3R system, including a comatose/dead Q9650, and could do with an extra C2Q CPU for diagnosing motherboards, plus short-medium term crunching until I decide to go to LGA1156 or LGA1366 stuff (not sure about i920 - it's fast but seems like a power-hungry juggernought).
    Back to the subject, I remember that you said you'd raided the forums for all the cheap Q6600s you could find. Would you mind telling me where to look? Maybe stocks have recovered since your raids.
    I've looked on TPU without luck, and eBay is expensive - a new Q9550 would be better value - A$320+.
    My problems are outlined at: and
    Thanks in advance

    Hi. I didn't mean to be unsympathetic. I just skimmed your post initially. I didn't realize you had a serious hardware issue untill I looked at it again. There are plenty of people who can help you with the router. I've set them up myself a few times so I'll help if I can. I've never used POE but have used some similar things and I'm pretty sure you can't have a surge suppressor between either transceiver and the wall outlet. So you would think they would make them a little more sturdy. But all it takes is one little power spike and it's fried. You'll probably be better off with wireless anyway. When I was in my apartment, I had the same problem and just ran wires along the baseboard and ceiling - a lot of wires. It always freaked people out and it looks like hell but I was never a closet geek.
