    Look up. Look way up.
    Some good news all.

    I am going to move back into the apartment complex where I used to live in a few months. Hopefully January or February the latest. Electricity included!!! :) (oh it's got a dishwasher too!)

    It worked great as my main machine for 3 years. Then I upgraded to SB-E but didn't quite have all the components I needed to bring this back to life. There are a couple things in boxes I have to find. I have a Thermaltake Frio that I want to throw back on it if I can find the back plate and screws. I know that they're in a bag together, but I don't recall where I put it. :banghead: I do still have the stock cooler if I absolutely must, but I would rather not. I just need to grab a case for it now and I'm going to be doing that very soon.

    Well thanks to Brandon I have some RAM on the way. That should definitely do it for my i7-950. Hopefully then it would start pumping out the #'s it should. :rockout:

    I'm not worried about it. Most hardware can handle a little zap. It's not like I'm rubbing it across the carpet or wearing socks either. :p

    I have a 7 month old daughter, I don't like the idea of a computer sitting wide open while running. I used to be able to push it up to 3.8ghz, but last time I used it I was running a stable 3.6ghz off of it. The NB will run at 2.5ghz last I ran it and I can squeeze about DDR2-880 @ 4-5-4-14 last time I tried iirc. I'll be tweaking it a little bit but I don't plan on running it too much faster than 3.5ghz and the memory will go where ever my base clock ends up taking me.

    Those chips clock decent for being 140W. The first 940BE I owned would do 3.9 stable at 1.52V under water but this chip I sent justin I never OCed.

    if anyone has a quad or tri core AM2 chip id be interested. i think its about time to let this 5200+ fold on its own but the GF still wants a gaming Pc and shes starting to complain about frames i might like a board to. I see a cap replacement in this ones future i already did 2 of the power regulation caps for the CPU but others are starting to look a little domed. LMK sometime.

    Ahh, I can see that if you have a young child that could be problematic. The only thing I have to worry about is dust and my roommate, and neither of those present too great of a risk to my HW.
    3.5GHz is still a nice boost from 3.0 :toast:
    140w for 3GHz? :eek:

    http://www.cpu-world.com/CPUs/K10/A... Edition - HDZ940XCJ4DGI (HDZ940XCGIBOX).html

    Thermal Design Power ?
    125 Watt (Socket AM2+/Socket AM3)
    139.6 Watt (Socket AM2)

    Shows 140W is for AM2 boards but what AM2 boards support a AM2+ chip?? Kinda confusing. It shows 125W on AM2+/MA

    The 940 is a 125-watt TDP chip. There are AM2 chips that use 140-watts but the 940 isn't one of them.

    CPUWorld also says the memory controller is 533mhz when it supports 1066. Doh!

    On the upside, an 880G board will support everything up through a FX-8 and can be had for ~$50 :toast:

    My i7-920 is on the way and, according to FedEX, should be here tomorrow :toast:

    You need to look for FX-62.
    Friend of mine has this and does not want to go on the SB-E.
