    Hi! I'm from the Internet
    Heh the board is brand new. It's been sealed in the box and stored in my closet for going on 10 years. It never got used when I was running slot A's. I actually just opened the sealed box today and would you know the friggin i/o shield is missing. Wonder if I can file a rma with Msi? LOL I believe I have a couple spare one that I can use with the board. That is going to be my old school build. Complete with win 98se.

    Thats right ion the mighty K7 is here now to rule crunching. LOL

    LOL I may hit you up for the win me. With this build I do need to stay with win9x/me. Now if the moon aligns right and the planet goes in perfect harmony I may find the long sought after motherboard I have been looking for for like 3 years now. The I will have my ultimate win9x/me build. I have everything else just missing the damn board and can't find the exact one I want.

    Hi! I'm from the Internet
    A atx not at form factor, Super Socket 7 board with the Via Mvp3 chipset and a Agp slot. That's all I want want. The only one I have found is on ebay right now for $103. Screw that I don't want it that bad. I could use $103 to upgrade my main rigs. I just wait one will show up for next to nothing then I will be set.


    Edit: One just like this one Clicky me for Socket 7 goodness

    I also have one of these heavy friggin things. Brand new in the pack as I felt the thing would rip the socket off the board due to it's weight.

    I do got's some stuff tucked away now. LOL

    :laugh:

    is that all one piece? it looks like 3 heatsinks stacked? what is it so i can google better pics of it and get a better look at it.

    * i found it. I thought it was close to an orb family by looks. dated back in 2001. Thats a classic.

    It's a Thermaltake Dragon Orb 3. The orange section comes off but it only houses the fan. The blue/silver part has a solid copper slug in the center. The slug is about 2 to 2.5" tall and about 2" in diameter.


    When I go to actually build the Slot A system I will update my old school build thread and post the progress there.

    Anandtech dragon orb 3

    I see what you mean. Is it kinda tall? it looks it a lil but it may just be camera angle. as solid as it looks. I bet it is pretty heavy. Not like chips got that hot back then as the weight is prob comaprable to the bigger coolers we have today.

    Camera angle. The thing is tall. I will get exact measurement tomorrow but I would say the thigh together is atleast 4 or so inches tall. And out weights my Hyper 212+ probably by twice as much. The one I have is for socket A chips. And they could get quiet hot. I ended up buy the Volcano 7 and used it instead of the Dragon Orb.

    Well, my 2700k hasn't even turned in its first batch of WUs yet and I'm already negotiating at [H] for the purchase of an i7-920 and a motherboard. Other than that, I'm looking to get a cooler from brandon, I have a HDD and PSU I can scrounge up, and I'll run it caseless on the windowsill right by the AC unit :toast:

    Sitting here staring at the 35°c CPU reported by my desktop while running Boinc, with the greatest distrust to the temp sensors so far. :wtf:


    Edit: Probably 36-37°c is more reasonable normal range. Depends on how cold I'm keeping the room. :p

    The 2700k did 4GHz fine, so I'm going for 4.3GHz now. I'm still unfamiliar with OCIng SB CPUs, but that will be solved with time.

    It's up to the more expected 37°c now. Which I still think is incredibly low. Don't feel like I've done enough to get it that low. :S

    What CPUis that?

    It certainly seems low to me, many CPUs idle in the upper 30s...

    My A6. Wish I had a IR thermometer. :S

    Edit: Though I did get the core VID/voltage down to 1,1 V.

    4.3GHz is holding steady with temperatures in the mid-60 C. About a 5c rise or so vs 4GHz (probably due to the extra voltage--1.30 vs 1.27). It passed two hours of Linpack, so I'm going to let it crunch, hopefully it won't BSOD or prove unstable :toast:

    :toast: looks like ".." will have some pie tonight! :D

    If temps go up too much on that cooler you can switch to a push-pull setup and probably get them down an extra 3-5C.... even if you just added one of those 1200rpm fans you have you should see a drop temps by a couple degrees C
