    Safe voltage ... anything under 1.8v and 57C Orthos with a REALLY good air cooler. I have a Tt Volcano 7 on my tbird 900, its a 1.75v defaulter.

    Oh yeah that is a handy little site. A bit of a rough Engrish translation going on there, but I'm understanding most of. Pretty serious. haven't got around to flashing my BIOS yet because it seems my floppy controller on the mobo is shagged! who ever heard of that?

    Just wish i could push mine further, I think its cooling on the mobo limiting the OC, as the Ram is designed to run at 500MHz, CPU is staying cool but i guess the NB/SB and VRMs cant stay cool enough, Also i have to run a Mod Bios otherwise it will be read as an unknown CPU at 2200MHz.

    What video cards are paired with those CPU's? I just wanna see the CPU score in 3dm06 to see how they fair against the modern day wolfdales(score is doubled due to dual, remember that).

    The 2100 is paired with a FX5700 128MB 4x AGP card, and the 3200 is paired with 6600GT 8x AGP

    3DMark06 would be terrible lol, it be lucky if the 2100 machine will finish it with out crashing.

    How about 3DMark05?

    Sure! Would be interesting to see. Think you can hit 8-10k with those in 05? **nonchalantly sets a goal** :p

    lol ok, i can tell you now that the 2100 machine wont hit 8k at all, it just hits over 8k now on 3DMark2001 lol, the other system MIGHT hit 8k, we will have to see :)

    Yea i know :toast: Indeed i would be surprised if it hits over 7 also, i would have to put a HDD back into it, install a OS and also put some RAM back in to. If i have time ill do some OCing to ;) I wont be able to do the tests for awhile, but ill try to get them done asap

    I will consider sending it your way. I plan on getting in crunching if i can get a board for it. BTW it maxes alittle over 2.3ghz@1.75v thats 100mhz more then i got with my old board


    EDIT:does anyone know of a good cooler for Socket A that you can still find? I'm thinking of throwing together a small WC loop when i get the money for it but would like to have air.(it does have holes around the socket)

    lucky you, my 2500+ M won't budge beyond 2.2GHz, Seems CPU stays cool but i think the System temp is what jumps High, System temp i believe is the Temp Reading for the Chipset/VRMs. Im really unsure why it won't go further than that.

    i'll throw my rig in here. I've got an Athlon XP 2400 (2.0ghz) on an MSI KT333 mobo. 1.5GB of pc2100, an MSI GeForce4 Ti 4400 (315/630). Finally updated it with a Sata card and an 80gb sata drive to make it last longer. It got just over 10K marks in 3dmark 01 and i think it managed somewhere in the 4200's on 3dmark 03.

    I still have it around after initially building it back in 2002. It run windows 2000 as a base OS with a virtual Win 98SE for some older 2d games. Ran 24/7 for 3 years... went into a closet for a year, ran 24/7 again for another 2 years. Now it runs about 36-48 a week. up until a few weeks ago, it was still using the original 2 20gb segate hdd's.

    Ok here is a screen shot of my old computers score in 3DMark2001SE.

    System Specs are:

    AMD XP 2100 OC to 1.85GHz
    Nvidia FX5700 128mb
    2x512 RAM Kingston 266MHz
    80GB HDD
    GA-7DXE Mobo

    How do you run 3DMark05 with out going on the net to see the scores?
