    Thank you for offering :toast:
    I am already covered on everything right now. I'm sure it could be of some use to someone else

    Gigabyte is quite nice, except when it comes to coloring and BSEL-Mods...(they tend to read the cpuid, instead of the FSB the proc tells them.) Havent had a Gigabyte till now, but the one a buddy of me has seems to be quite ok, and wasnt expensive :)

    Yep, remember those, very impressive!
    I'm surprised that it even supports the PhII chips...you'd never get that range of support with Intel boards.

    Will it even boot or whatever w/ a 125w PhII?
    I've also had a good experience with GB and their tech support....I'm probably going to get a Gigabyte GTS 450. Cheapest one after rebate, non-reference cooler, quiet, looks great, and a good warranty. Can't wait

    May have a board on the way for trade for P_o_s_pc that will allow better overclocking. Will allow him to squeeze some extra ppd out of one of his cpu's.

    @Magikherbs

    I may need that apacer stick. Time will tell and I'll keep you posted.



    Damn guys I really need to come out of hiatus and start crunching again. I havent for the past couple weeks trying to dial in faster 24.7's.
    p_o_s_pc, Magikherbs and [Ion] say thanks.

    Jr. I have a sweet i3 550 set up coming my way very soon. Ill have to get with you so we can get it dialed in. The person I am getting it from has clocked it 4.6GHz+ with pretty low voltage. Its going to be a 24/7 cruncher, so stability will be a must. Can't wait. Haven't decided on cooling yet though. Decisions decisions. :shadedshu

    An i3 shouldn't need much, I'd imagine a Hyper 212+ would be more than enough for sub-4.5ghz

    Its my first Intel setup, so its a little intimidating to say the least. I know AMD well enough to throw the juice to it with confidence. But this one is going to be like reading Chinese. :laugh:

    if i can cool my q9550 @ 4100 mhz and around 65c with the 212 then the i3 will be cooler i think



    we got you ;) anything you find difficult just ask away :D

    I was cooling this i3 on a stock cooler @ 4Ghz 1.21v and it was hitting 65C linpack. CM 212+ will be fine. Yeah it's not a problem hit me up via pm's. Just remember it's not the heat that kills these chips, it's the voltage. Oh and if you can OC an AMD chip you can OC the i3.

    EDIT:

    With the dark knight at 4.4Ghz 1.32v I hit 54C linpack, current settings stays at around 50C. Personal usage I'd say about 45C load.

    Overclocking an AMD processor is a lot like OCing an Intel iX CPU, not as different as 775->AM2/3 was :D

    Great price for such a highly recommended cooler. That's the one I will be getting. :rockout:

    I have that cooler and love it. Works great, and cools my X2 clocked at 3.0Ghz just fine. Pretyy soon it'll be cooling an X4. :D

    Remember, iX series CPUs have very high heat tolerances... anything under 80c load (max load, Linpack) is supposed to be considered acceptable for 24/7 use. They take up to 100c but you really don't want to go there... kinda like video cards.

    That's certainly true, I've run my i7 at ~75c for most of it's life. Only recently that it's now running in the 60s

    I'm interested in getting a 2GB stick of DDR2 667 to drop in my server so I can have 4GB memory in there (and dual channel).

    Anyone have some Gentle Typhoon 1850 models they want to sell? Would like to get 2 of them, but even one would be cool.

    Thanks!
