Rig gallery updated in your honor, Craigleberry! BTW: Nice cables!
hey craigle, if you ever use a big cooler such as the TT big typhoon or the Thermalright SI-97 with a 120 MM adapted fan, you may have to remove the aft fan and mount it externally.
how do yall upload images?
check out the images- sorry its not any better but its a Phone cam
Yes Lucky this is just for my kids to play with..I know it would be a tight squeeze fitting a big air cooler.(My main rig has a Thermalright IFX-14) I will just whack some mx-2 on and lap that heatsink O/C the cpu with that ram I should (touch wood) get an o.k result. Nice Motherboard eidairaman1 lol.
Edit... I will need some help with Overclocking this puppy.
Updated post 2 eidairaman1. C'mon guys post those mad overclocks so I can put them on the leaderboard also!
no major overclocks for me until i get cooling for NB,SB,VRMs, lap the big typhoon Cooler lapped, Bios from NEO over at DFI Club, and possibly a few large intake fans 120. Also Craigle, the Motherboard is the same one you have for your kids system
Yer thats why I said nice motherboard eidairaman1 in my last post.
system specs tell it all, maximum overclock i could obtain was 2.36 GHz but with the current bios and cooling thats the limit, with better cooling and a different bios i can probably obtain 2.5GHz at the least, as some have reached 2.7-3.0GHz on this pup, not bad for old technology eh?
Nice looking old skool PC!
The case doesn't have bad layout.
Better than mine anyway.
The motherboard has some nice colours.
Haven't seen a DVD/CD drive that big in a while.
Nuffin wrong with old socket a CPU's. The first pc I built was a socket a, I fried the chip with too much voltage cracked the sads with it and basicly switched to Intel. But I had some spare stuff lying around and the kids keep on getting on my pc moving files around the place so I thought time to build em one. Plus I will learn more about Networking and filesharing in the process. Its all good.
LOL Widjaja hasnt seen a DVD rom that big in a while hehehe I have a draw full of hdd's and old cd roms and the like lots of old skool crapola that I have pulled from systems over the years... My fiance is sick of tripping over it lol.
not to mention lock it down so they cant do anything but run stuff you install, and surf the internet at sites you approve. BTW i wouldnt recommend overclocking more than 5MHz at a time to prevent any failure, also make sure the timings for the ram are Factory spec before doing overclocking heh (easiest way to get core speed up)
Socket A aren't that sensitive to overclocking are they?
my motherboard certainly doesnt like being pushed hard all at once, its a gradual build up, but it seems 2.36GHz is the max i can obtain with the current setup here are the results of my 205x11 overclock.
I dont think they do as well as the core 2 duo's. But we will see... just as long as I dont kill this one
I'm almost certain the AMD CPU's are clocked closer to the limit than C2D.
X2 3800+ will most of the time clock just as high or higher then the higher end X2 CPU's.
This is coming from a 939skt user.
Havnt had a great deal to do with amd's but it would seem that way.
well here is the aquamark 3 score with the CPU at 207x11
Only Problem im having with aquamark 3 is the monitor will blank out with flicker returning to the results screen, im having to do a hard reset (pull power) on the monitor to return it to function- i am unsure what causes that. The Other Thing is with the Overclock the 3D mark Score went down to 3989 Points.
i have a ECS KT600-a sempron 1ghz and 512mb of ct-5 (does 500mhz 2-3-2-6) sitting next to me waiting for a HDD to run
i have a 10GB one. I think it works, want it? Pay shipping and it's yours.
i think i can get my 60GB maxtor working again if not i'll PM you about that
Download the maxtor maxblast software, version 5. It's a pain in the ass to work with, but it does wonder's with drives
it will only work if the drive will boot past the BIOS
oh... so true.
Strange are you using LCD or CRT? I will try and beat that score yo but will not get close .... I just read in yer specs you have X1950 pro agp I only have 9800 pro in my socket a rig. I just had a bit of a shock with my main rig... Turned it on this morning and ran cpu-z , core temp and Orthos just to see that it was still stable and after 30 seconds Orthos returned error!!! I rebooted looked in bios and found the ram divider was set to Auto It should be on 2 and I never changed it. Seems we have gremlins living at our house It works fine now but geez I tell ya what I was thinking the worst
