But you did a great job with that board.(My first by the way)
Let me know if anyone from the team needs anything. I can help yah out a little.
Thanks, it definitely is a solid motherboard Hopefully tonight I can get the rest of that build finished. Can't deny that it would be fun to get an FX-8120 rig together though!
popswala is getting the board. Soory theonedub when the I7's need room for new rigs you are second on the list. (BP's on the top for an I7)
Sounds like a plan If this HDD ever finishes its low level format I will post pics of the finished Athlon X3 build later tonight. If I cant have an FX, I'm crossing my fingers its a stable unlock to an X4
If it does not unlock, let me know man. I have a Phenom II 555BE that unlocks. I would just swap ya for the x3.
Wow! very generous of you That is a sweet board
If I was home when you sent this message and in the middle of gathering parts for my next cruncher I would have been all over this.... unfortunately I wasn't home and won't be pulling parts together for another cruncher until this summer
It unlocked to a Propus X4 (no L3 ), but it still needs to be stability tested. Got into Windows with no tinkering, so thats a good sign. Do the temp sensors always get disabled when you unlock a CPU?
That's awesome Dub! I don't think any of the processors that unlock will have the L3.
Yep, the sensors are always wacky at best on a processor that unlocks.
Always for the cores but they are historically inaccurate anyways :shadedshu The main CPU temp sensor on the board should still be working fine
**EDIT- stinger beat me to it ****
Yea I had a system, I think it was a Asus Crosshair III, that reported an unlocked 550BE at 9C. Now 9C is about equal to 48F. Of course it was running on air.
You would have thought it was outside in 20F weather.
I wish my x6 would unlock to a x20. Then I would be cooking.
In more ways than one
Alright. I'm back lol. I hate asking but I figured I'd give it shot since I don't know when I'll be able to get one. Anyone got an extra cd drive sata layin around? Need one to install os on my soon to be cruncher. Thanks everyone
Why not just load the OS install image on a USB flash drive?
I could do that if I knew how? what size flash drive would I need?
.4gb for windows 7 and 1gb for ubuntu
Ubuntu rocks heh. Pops I have a ide drive if that will help.
lol, That would work if the board had ide. Not to familiar with ubuntu. Haven't used it in yrs.
If someone has a link to where I can read on how to do it by usb, that'll help.
Sent you a helpful link
Thanks man. pm'd ya back.
go to ubuntu.org they have a guide listed.
Well today my PSU for my 6 core EXPLODED! It was a 400W 20A I had from a prevous build and was testing 3.8Ghz OC when about the 4th pass of ITB it Physically EXPLODED! Sparks flew Everywhere! I though it took it all with it but I was lucky, I had a 275W psu that I do testing with and it posted with it but I did not load windows due to the lower wattage so now Im down a cruncher.
Would anyone have a PSU they could donate for the price of shipping or one they would sell cheap. My six core is dead in the water
I can hook you up brandon.
