Default Hardware casualties from the CC?

So, what died? There must be fatalities from the heavy, constant folding required by the CC.

For me, only an Antec TP550W, probably from old age.

What's weird though, is that not a single GPU (8 of 'em) blew up (yet), nor was there a reboot from my 2600k...

Incoming Black Cloud.

Lost a fsp 600w Epsilon PSU, same thing John I think it was age + CPU+GPU folding that did it.

Actually surprisingly both of my SR-2's have been rock solid stable since the competition. This is the longest both of them have been running since I first bought them.

Saw a dead Beaver on the street yesterday, it was made to look like an accident, but I'm sure a hit squad was behind it.

My video card doesn't seem to be too happy anymore. It used to run at a full 99% when starting this challenge but now it hops all over the place, from about 30% to 99% as of the last day or two. So it's either going to go soon or possibly a reboot may fix it.

None....yet. And that includes two overclocking GTX 590 cards. So much for them being "fragile"....
