    US only and NO RAM. I pass, fitting it will memory will cost a small fortune.

    Awwww snap! Got the Phenom II X2 555 to unlock to an x4 -- time for OC and stability testing --

    Microcenter had an AWESOME deal on a board and chip - Managed to get out the door for 120 dollars with the 555 and a sweet biostar board -- Great new bench rig!



    --- I wasn't expecting how good it feels knowing i just unlocked a chip --- This feeling beats out getting my i7 to 4.0 Ghz =)

    Nope. No pics.

    Damn, I kinda screwed myself out of it. It said in the Essay field to put the essay there or describe your essay in more detail... so I put a very brief summary of the essay I was going to write, but it just said thank you for your entry after I clicked on sumbit. Now when they read my entry, it will just say "I would use it to run World Community Grid..."

    looks like 3.8Ghz is going to the be sweetspot for this x2 --


    --- side note ---

    Anyone know what the max "safe" voltage is for most C3 Phenoms?

    Definitely stay under 1.5v, not sure if you need to stay any lower

    Thanks Ion! :toast:

    I knew that AMD's normally used a little more voltage than their intel counterparts - I've got this x2 running stable at 3.8 GHz with 4 cores on 1.41 Volts --

    Just wanted to be safe, so I asked.... On to OCCT's Linpack 3 Hour and 5 minute burn in test ;)

    I'm currently running @ 1.315v for 3.4ghz on my X4 955. Stock was 1.408, so I'm pretty happy with it. With your results, I'll try for 3.6ghz tomorrow on ~ 1.38v or something. At 1.408v, it's too hot/loud, but 1.38 should be OK

    Anything is a very welcome contribution, for the first couple weeks that I ran WCG all I had was a Pentium M laptop that put out ~175 PPD

    I has a laptop to do some work. :D
    Only worry is power. Will it affect the electric bill substantially? I'm thinking not, but I want to be sure as I'm not the one paying the electric. ;)

    No. If your laptop tops out at 50w (average for a C2D laptop), it would cost ~10 cents a day to run it if you pay 8c/kwh for electricity. So a total of ~$35 a year, which I consider to be very reasonable, especially considering that my laptop will out-produce a pair of 200w Pentium 4 systems

    It has a Celeron M 1.5GHZ cpu. Probably a bit of a sucker. :laugh:

    In that case, the power usage should be a bit lower, but you'll probably only get ~150 PPD out of it (approximately the same as I got out of a 1.4ghz Pentium M).

    just entered my essay for the "48 cores" from AMD --

    If I win, I'd use every bit for crunching! And what an awesome rig that would be!

    I hope that you win. Does the mobo take plain DDR2/3 RAM and how much is the minimum to run all 4 CPUs?
