    Moore's Law is not proven wrong. Moore's Law is not about speed.

    Actually Moore's law states that every 24 months, the number of transistors of computers doubles, not computing power.
    This was misinterpreted by an Intel big-wig years back (House was his last name, that's all I remember. I'm sure if I could be arsed to Google it, I could find his full name) as every 18 months and it was misconstrued as processing power.
    Generally speaking, an increase in transistor count is also an improvement in performance, but this is not always the case, hence my posting this and clearing the confusion.

    well, might not be nostalgic but i wanted to share that pics i found on facebook in a random WTF computer post... at last the owner has the reason why his fan stoped working ... and judging by the lizard look ... it has been a long time before he'd notice it ...:rolleyes::roll:

    Yea some of them would overclock close to double. I had a 700 and I think I had it at 1200 or something like that. :p

    those slot A athlons were mental overclockers, never seen chips clock as well as them majority could hit a 75-80% overclock

    weeheee i recieved 2 on 4 of my waited delivery (sad the cpu werent in one of those) but i recieved a fine piece of Thermalright engineering: The Ancestor of the Silver arrow (or was it the Cogage who is the ancestor ... duh i cant remember)

    THERMALRIGHT Inferno Fire eXtinguisher(IFX)-14 and IFX-10 backside HS ... 840gr of pure pleasure without the fan ofc, im waiting on 2 TY-147 or 3 for it adding either 320gr or 480gr more to it xD [​IMG]
    the backside IFX-10, so thick alu blades ...
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    and the IFX-14 pure beauty, drop that on your feets and you're good for a reconstructive surgery... :eek:
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    only 4 heatpipes versus 6 on the Macho but WOW HEATPIPES! and i dont have thin pinky...
    [​IMG]
    also the bundle include a 4g syringe of Chill Factor
    [​IMG]
    as you can see i have more than needed since i usualy use Arctic MX-4 but that pics is fun
    the 2g satchel on the bottom is the Chill Factor II bundled with the Macho
    and this HS was sold to a ridiculous price of 20$ almost good as new with all accessory inclued... i paid 45$ for the Macho and 2g of CFII huhu naahhh they include a free 9.5" Ph2 screwdriver with the macho :D


    now it will go in a not so much nostalgic build but on a 2009 PhenomII X2 511 (Overkill isnt it?) it make me wonder ... i have a Thermalright HR-02 Macho Rev. A in my main build i wonder wich one would performe the best :D PhenomII X4 955 should be no challenge for the IFX-14 as it is not for the HR-02, or i can go passive and rely only on the 140mm Fractal Silent R2 with the X2 511 huuhuu

    [​IMG]
    i think i can go semi passive with the 140mm back and 230mm top
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    PSU in place and cable routing in a case that recieved bad review about its cable management
    [​IMG]
    just in case you wonder ... yes i plugged the 4+4 12v after puting all inside ... im masochist
    [​IMG]
    RED TAPE! to ease the back panel closing xD and yes the black cable crossing on top is the cable of the 140mm
    [​IMG]
    the IFX-10 will have 2 coolink SWIF120 in front and since i dont need the HDD rack it will be full airflow
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    a bit gettho but if it works then its a good one! its a Kingston ram cooler put in place of the 2 60mm slot in the Tt E S
    [​IMG]
    the CM TX3 Evo used previously ... almost small as the IFX-10 :D

    oh well the un shroud "athlon" was a PII or PIII have to seek model
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    ok more info its a PIII 500mhz

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    btw removing the cooler on the Athlon also removed a bit of my right index (rather a huge bit ... damn)

    good news the Athlon is a 2nd serie Pluto core (i hunt 1st serie but 2nd are fine tho, the older the more value they have for me )

    Geforce 6800. This thing is stupidly loud. Should probably replace the paste and blow the dust out of it.
