    I finally got my tim to get a few pcs up and running. I just need to chase down some s775 coolers and I think ram. I need to look up specs which I'll do here in a few to see what it supports. So as of right now I know I'm lookin for a few s775 coolers if anyone has some old ones.

    edit* I'm looking at ram right now.
    - 1.8 V (only) DDR2 SDRAM DIMMs with gold-plated contacts
    Unbuffered, single-sided or double-sided DIMMs with the following restriction: Double-sided DIMMs with x16 organization are not supported.
    4 GB maximum total system memory
    Minimum total system memory: 128 MB
    Non-ECC DIMMs
    Serial Presence Detect
    DDR2 667, DDR2 533, or DDR2 400 MHz SDRAM DIMMs

    I didn't know ddr2 went that low in speed. I first thought those were ddr speeds.

    Well, a while back, Mad Shot sent me some memory for my P4, Thanks Bud! EDIT!! That HDD you see on the side? CP was kind enough to send me that!!
    [​IMG]

    Then a friend dropped off another old comp for me to look at. It had a Pentium 4! My P4 machine had this in it and it was Jealous of the other P4!
    [​IMG]

    So, I switched up the CPU's to make My P4 happy...
    [​IMG]

    But now, my P4 won't boot. Methinks it may needs a CMOS resettting, post haste! However, I says to me, I don't wanna! So, maybe later. :)

    @Arjai

    You need a 400fsb compatible P4. I think you have near the fastest available for your chip set.

    Edit
    A BIOS update may give you the capability

    BIOS won't do it. Thanks though for the comment, made me do some research on the subject!
    Anyways, this is what I need to max out my P4 machine:
    Intel Pentium 4 2.6 GHz socket 478 CPU SL6PP 512/400 Northwood, part numbers:
    RK80532PC064512-OEM #
    BX80532PC2600D boxed microprocessor

    There is one that is a 400FSB 2.8Mhz, RK80546PG1041M But I've done numerous Bing searches and can't find any.

    Also, that 2.6GHz, the prices are all over the place! E-Bay has one for $15.50 and then there are places that want $139! Is it possible that somebody would pay a hundred forty dollars for an old P4?

    Anyways, if anybody can find me this CPU, on the cheap, I would be very delighted! So would my P4! :rolleyes:

    Looks like the P4 is going back to stock, 1.6. I may just put it off for a while though, rough night sleeping.

    P.S. I had a phone interview this morning to be an Apple tech phone center/at home call answer-er. They would send me a new Apple comp to use for the job and I would field calls from customers with iPhones and iPads that need help. Just a first step but, I'm a little excited. Training starts in July at 9.15 an hour, so at least I'll get paid for something! :p

    200mhz wont make much of a difference on a P4.

    If your motherboard supports HT that would be nice!

    Not quite yet. I'm still working with single cores but, when the P4 gets online, I'll have two cores! LOL, they will only be separated by about four feet!

    Post a WTB thread here in the B/S/T section if you're looking for a P4 chip. You will most likely get plenty of offers. Check t_ski's for sale thread- I think he had a bunch of them there at good prices.

    Congrat's on the job prospects!!! :toast:

    I'm still in need of some 4pin connectors for cpu power. I also forgot that I could also use some usb wifi adapters if anyone has some extra laying around their not using or don't need anymore. I'm gonna try and get a few more rigs up. They're the old p4's. I know they don't do much but I never messed with s775 and this was the cheapest route I can go to learn and play.

    Thanks fello crunchers. Keep on Crunchin'

    Would rather these go to a fellow member who crunches; PM me for details on an i3 530/p7h55 combo. This will be to fund an upgrade, with a big bump in performance.
