    Got it working, though i definetely not overvolt with stock HSF. Won't do the 2 hours LinX run, cause it'll be 5am in Israel when i'll finish it. :) Here's 2 tumbnails for SuperPi_mod (@ 3.7GHz/1.35v) :

    after seeing these 4ghz clocks on the PII you guys are making me want to go back to AMD :banhead: I think i am going to build a PII cruncher next wouldn't cost much more then a i3

    you get better clocks, but such a clock on x64, with an AMD proc, is quite an Achievement!:)

    why dont you like Intel, Pos?

    Yeah amd has really come together ATM IMO compared to the early PII's... I'm loving these new Revision chips especially this one.

    I'm really looking at the PII X2 555(its the C3 dual core)
    or maybe i just need to open a window push the voltage on the i7 and see how much i can get out of it.

    I think i am just a fanboy at heart. I won't give up my i7 just because of how much of a cruncher it is
    on my i7 i get 4ghz stable @~1.3v keep in mind it is a C1 and that i am new to clocking Intel so i think as i learn i can get more out of it on the same volts

    :laugh: I take that as a complement. David is a good guy(from what i know) so thank you :toast:
    I think i just ditched my plan to build a i3 lan box and replaced it with a X2 555 :p should be good.
    If i was to post here with board,CPU,ram etc would you guys be willing to give me your input on if it would make a good cruncher/lan box?
    Its true it was made more with the "pros" in mind but it still is a hell of a gamer I can't slow it down.But i still get lag in TDU but i think that is just because of a poorly coded game. It plays about the same on my current setup as it did on my x2 4600+@2.5ghz and 7900GS :wtf:

    Thats a Word!
    246x17.5, no Matter what it will cost?;)
    with x12 NB and HT under 2000?

    A game that lags on such a fast Machine? seems to be impossible. they really must have employed amateurs to program that :D

    lol of course pos! We always welcome new brothers (and sisters) into the clutches....err loving arms of the AMD brethren.

    Full...what rad are you running again? You're making me go crazy (yet again), and the other rad isn't here yet. I'm gonna go check the post tomorrow since it hasn't showed up to the house yet. I'm assuming it is backed up because of all the snow we had dumped on us recently.

    can i get some advice on this

    starting with the board. this one seems to have caught my eye because it seems decent has nice specs layout doesn't look bad and price is about the same as what i was going to pay for the i3 board

    ASUS M4A77TD AM3 AMD 770
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813131603

    Now the ram is the same that is in the i7 there will be 2 sticks in the AMD build. From what i have seen from this ram and what i have got it to with the i7 i am considering buying it for the AMD build also. Now I know its only 2gb but i haven't had any problems with XP and 2gb of ram for crunching and slight gaming/everyday use like surfing the web. Any other task that are more demanding would be done on the main rig

    ram X2
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820148196

    CPU
    this kinda goes without saying much. I am looking for a cheap CPU based on the C3 stepping and with a possibility of unlocking to a quad. The X2 555 seems to fit the bill perfectly

    the 120.2 rad CP gave me.... I think that's what it is hey David?

    oh and to note.... i have two 120mm fans pulling air through the rad and my custom cut thin foam air filter on the back side cuz im lazy to remove the rad to wash it clean :rockout:

    Kei I sent it out by ground since money has been real tight sense x-mas but if you want I can take a photo of the receipt to show ya? It was defiantly sent to you bro...it will be there tomorrow I bet.

    the main reason I got this cpu is for the fact a c2 chip wont run the memory at 1600mhz with more than 2 sticks.... I ordered another set of these nice OCZ plat 1600 tripple chan rams to have more memory. my local guy was telling me their hard to get from his supplier all of a sudden, but it'll happen in the next two weeks
    Kei says thanks.
