Damn, two rigs are down and don't have time to fix them, sorry.
Hey guys just ordered an i7 860 today!
I think you have the same bug as me. Just did one new buid(i7930), upgraded main rig(955 to 1055t) and threw in another (new home for 955)
How is that 1055t?
I was wanting to get a 930 but I couldn't justify the added cost.. lol The 1055T is kickass so far. I noticed something pretty amazing.. It clocks down to 800MHz when idle and light use.. and will jump up to 2.8GHz when needed and keep going up to 3.3GHz. I haven't tweaked a thing.. hehehe everything is still on auto. I'll try to get it to 4.0Ghz tomorrow. I've seen where a few ppl were only able to get it to 3.7Ghz-3.8Ghz.. That's still great for a x6 processor. Oh well i'll better head to bed... My eyes are burning..lol I'll update tomorrow.
Edit: I wish AMD would go pinless.. I know they said they would never do that... but I still say never say never.. I mean really if they keep adding pins where will they put them..lol Surely they would save money by doing it. Don't get me wrong pins are cool but.. it's a whole lot easier to lap pinless processors..lol
My AII throttles to 1GHz when not in use (it would be 800MHZ, but it just drops the multi and voltage, not the fsb... heh)
Although, this almost never happens cause of WCG, hehe...
Nice! and yea WCG puts a stop to all of that..lol but still a nice feature for powersaving htpc's..lol
WCG servers must be down. I have lots of work units to report but nothing gets through.
BTW, I'll probably be "downgrading" my rig to an i3 shortly, I'm hoping for 4-4.2ghz, so it should actually bring a minor boost in PPD
That sounds like an upgrade too me.
server back up! yay
i havent been on lately, and there is different reasons for it
1. my internet has been down for almost a week and will be down for 1 more at least / getting new ISP because of problems with the one i have now
2. im going to the hospital to get checked, been having chestpains, very bad headaches + i got this thing as big as a golfball in my leg that has to be removed, dont worry its not something bad afaik
so all in all a bad week for me....but ill be back soon guys.
Don, if there's anything you need, let me know. I'll do my best to help you.
I wish you best of luck Don
Magny Cours are all made using the LGA process... they dont have any pins anymore.
see for yourself:
you get, what you wished for!
AMD has been using LGA for years now, in one of thier server platforms.
I must say I vastly prefer LGA to pins, I've broken way too many pins on various CPUs (fortunately, none on the X4)
Hey guys... So over the summer ima get a 1055T and eventually a mobo and such. My question is, are kvm switches easy to use and somewhat cheap? I wont be able to afford another monitor for awhile and desk space for my current AMD box is limited. I havent had any experience with these b4 so please excuse my noobishness...
Trivial to use
I've never broken cpu pins. I only like LGA better because it's easier to lap, and the mounting system is more secure.
@ [ION].... From the Egg.ca http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Produc...&Description=kvm switch usb&name=KVM Switches what of these are good and will suit my needs? Im assuming that ill need a 2 port one? It will be the X2 240 and the 1055T on the switch.
This one may not be the "best", but I've had good luck with Rosewill products before and the price is excellent: http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Produc...7&cm_re=kvm_switch_usb-_-17-182-157-_-Product
Would these x6's work in my board, if they come out with a lower wattage model?
It should say it on the manufacturers site.
It wouldn't say, cause I only got a 95w board. These CPUs are 125w, thus not officially supported. I was wondering if any lower wattage models came out, would they be supported...
Could always grab one and undervolt it. lol.
We'll have to wait and see if they release one with a TDP of 95W, If not I wouldn't try it.
