With these nice and warm welcomes, I think he will stick around.
Hahah, you may live to regret saying that ...... I think I'll do you all a favor and leave my shoes on for now
I would hold out for the 2600K as it has hyper-threading
More threads for crunching power
A core with hyperthreading vs. a core without is about a 30% performance increase. Not huge, but significant. I agree with Hammer, though, your combo is worth a 2600k, hold out.
No no no no no no!!!!! I demand you take your shoes off!!! I have a foot fetish!
EDIT: Oh and welcome Zach.
Hench me saying we are all "clowns."
Of course Chaotic is the clown captain...........
I've seen other forums and...well, TPU was a fit for me. I registered for an opinion on my first major build, not only did I get excellent advice but I also got a warm welcome. Here it's all about technology and fun. I love TPU @stinger >
The board my wife picked up!
a floppy connector? srsly?
anyway, you'll be happy with SB
I thought that as well, I would rather have a spare IDE instead of floppy personally.
yeah if it HAS to be a old connector i''d take IDE any day
This is one of the better mATX boards, I would have to say though that the ASUS Maximus IV Gene-Z would be the best of the mATX 1155 board.
the p8p67m-pro is a VERY good board aswell, it almost matches MIV Gene
The color scheme of that board is awesome.
So I'm thinking about getting this server mobo and processors to use here. But I just don't know if I have the room. I think my max crunchers is 3. So I wanted to give anyone here at tpu first pick on it.
It's a Supermicro motherboard X6DH3-G3 with 2 intel Xeon Nocona CPUs, 2GB DDR2 ECC Ram, and 2 copper intel heatsinks.
You getting rid of that?
Yeah, I just don't have space for it. I'm pretty sure this thing would make a decent home server. Maybe even a pretty good cruncher. (Both CPU's have Hyper Threading from what I've read.)
I don't have the case or anything like that thou. It's just the mobo, heatsinks, cpus, and ram.
Edit- Well I also have the connectors for the built in RAID card for 6 Sata drives.
These are single cores with HTT right? Have any idea what kinda PPD they'd put out?
Yeah, they are the single cores with HTT. I'd expect something along the lines of whatever a X3 would put out. But that's just a guess.
Shoot me a PM with the price you want to let it go for.
Got no power fellas. So I think I'm just gonna open the windows and hit the sack. Gotta work in the AM. I'll keep you guys posted.
So I got paid today and made a bit of a newegg order.
Don't mind the cheap headset or the MX-2. Just some random tidbits I needed. Next month I plan to order a new mobo and DDR3 RAM. It's nice when you get a bonus. It really is.
Awesome bro! I was eyeballing one of those Silverstone cases the other day, for some reason I just felt like buying one. But I ended up getting the NZXT case from Peet. Great little build so far. Any particular RAM/Board you have your eyes on?
That is the case Lauren choose for her new case.
The X6 is for my rig, and the mobo and ram I was looking at were these.
MSI 990XA-GD55 AM3+ AMD 990X SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 AT...
CORSAIR XMS 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 ...
