    Nothing about SB chips on there.

    Mosheen, I've read that SB is 15-20% faster clock for clock, but I would take that figure with a big bag of rock salt. The main advantage of SB is lower power usage, or so I've read... again, salt.

    Oh yes. I started in 2009 with just a 1.4ghz Pentium M, now I've added one back to my arsenal. However, if all goes well, it'll be sold to fund a faster rig.
    Won't help, it hasn't been updated for Sandy Bridge yet :ohwell: :eek:

    that would have been fine if i would have seen that sooner. I have been in the middle of moving again and haven't had the internet till now so haven't been on in awhile. If you still have it next month then i will take it. I have $3 AT. Things are tight but getting better

    If i still had my gigabyte board near me i would set you up with it for cheap. It has been painted and is old but would work fine.

    I will try and see if i can get it back from my friend. :toast:

    Well crap, our awesome captain sent me a chip for an s775 motherboard, however I had to part with the board before receiving the chip:shadedshu:cry:

    None the less, I have everything to assemble another crunching rig other than the motherboard.

    If anyone has a cheap, cheap, cheap LOL, s775 motherboard and is looking to part with it, let me know.

    Thanks in advance,:respect::respect::respect:

    I think it is an old 65nm chip bro! Just an old P4 s775 3.2 chip that he had laying around.

    Thanks man for keeping an eye out!!!!
