Sadly that's an old pic... I used to have all that stuff
i already have a XP-M 2500+ in, only gets up to 2.2GHz stabily, after that it crashes hard no matter what voltage is applied.
2.2 is 3200+ speed. I hit 2.2 with my 2500+ xp-m on stock mobile voltage. I ran it at 2.4 with a very small bump in voltage. I can't remember exactly what the voltage was though.
I think with a bit of voltage those XP-M 2500's really can speed along I think I have managed to hit 2.8Ghz with one with water cooling... I hope to see if I can find another few to get a few higher scores
after 2.2 the 2500 M I have here would crash under COD 4 even, that was just with a multiplier bump (Yes I was able to run that game on the 1950 pro here at decent frames in MP even).
Ive about given up on it. Ill eventually return to messing around with it once i get a new machine built of the APU line
Damn it!!! For some reason that system is not booting. I am kind of leaning toward the video card taking a shit, but have to test it further. I have a DVI to HDMI cable that is known good, but I am not getting crap when I boot. Going to switch over to the 6600 Nvidia card and try again. I hope that is what it is!
Me too man. I have 1 more of those combos in my collection.
Now here is some crazy nostalgic adds!!!!!!!!!!!
Ran across this on "How To Geek." Was kid of looking for some old computer adds. Very cool.....Kind of creepy though. Think of them prices in the inflation now if they were not mainstream!!!
2 cents a byte was my favorite Here's a project- add up all of the bytes in your PC and see what it's worth
- cpu caches
- hdd cache
- gpu memory
- gpu caches
The dollar amount has to be unbelievable!!!
Yea no kidding. Probably worth hundreds of thousands.
Would be fun to do...........If a person was really bored.
try millions... i did this little experiment when AT&T was charging 2 cents per kilobyte... I decided i'd be one rich mofo if I charged them that rate to install windows vista on a few computers (at the time)
once I have funds again I may buy Skt A Chips and see how far i can push them, course after i build a new rig (whats a rig good for if its burnt up lol)
I've heard the mobile ones fair better with overclocking... and i think they came unlocked since it was necessary for the bios to downclock them to save on power.
XP-M 462 were unlocked, 0339+ for Desktop parts are locked
2500+ i have only goes to 2.2GHz stable enough.
i think that's what i managed to get mine to by some fluke... managed to get the bus at 400 rather than 333 somehow lol. It was short lived though... Abit's bios update killed the system... 3 hits from lightning didn't help either.
200 (400 Effective) x11 (5.5 Effective)= 2200.
Too bad Via wasnt pushing High End Performance on the AMD platform at the time, even though their kT880 chipset supported 4GB of ram
wouldn't have done any good considering the Athlons weren't 64-bit capable.
you know very well MS could of enabled over 4 gigs of ram without changing to 64bit
Indeed, it's called PAE (Physical Adress Extension), albeit not all benefits of x86_64 would be in effect.
Heh, first post on this forum, might as well be here.
I've got a fair amount of stuff, but I'll start out with my dual P3 Xeon retro rig.
If you've seen this board before, you'll notice two things ghetto-modded in there.
Antec Earthwatts 380W
Dual P3 Xeon 700/1Mb SL49P @784Mhz
2GB Micron PC133 ECC
Leadtek WinFast A350
Generic USB 2.0 Card
SB Live! CT4780
Quantum3d Obsidian2 200SBi
HP ML350 Hotswap Bay
Hitachi 73GB 10K
Seagate 73GB 10k
Too bad no AGP 8x Dual Athlon MP/XP motherboards were released that enabled full Overclocking capability. Ohwell guess have to write a bios to do that huh
The graphics card cooler reminds me of an audio or video (VHS) cassette.
What OS do you run on it, by the way? A flavour of Linux?
That's one nice looking old school rig
Not for Athlons, but I recall existing some for Opterons.
I know Tyan had an duel opteron mobo socket 940 though so not really old old school
And MSI did do an duel socket A mobo the K7D Master
but good luck in finding any Athlon MP CPU's anywhere
