    :ohwell:

    Even what I'm doing certainly doesn't come easy, currently I have three i7 Quads, 2 C2Ds, and a PhII X4 going 24/7. It's loud, makes the room quite warm, and must cost quite a bit in electricity.

    What you're doing with your X6 is still very impressive :toast: :respect:

    Consistency wins over anything else..... I can't keep running at this pace forever. Although, it would be nice if I could :toast:

    @RadEd ditto on what Ion said!

    Even if you can't keep this up, you still have a lot going :toast:

    And I still have quite a few targets in the Team, and I'm #3 by RAC in my adopted country :cool:

    My PPD comes from my X6, Lauren's Phenom II 945 X4, the C2D rig I made for my mom, and my work C2Q.

    [​IMG]


    All of them are pretty much in use a lot, so they don't crunch often. Only my X6 crunches at 100%, Lauren's machine is set to 90% because her X4 is a hot running chip.

    Everything else is on stock cooling, so they are only at 50-60%.

    GLaDOS is my main rig, although I reinstall the OS every few months or so. :laugh:

    I do like GLaDOS as a name...Portal really is very fun :toast: :cool:

    The X4 certainly is a hot-running chip. I'd say that your C2D and C2Q should be capable of 100% load--if not, do you want a new cooler for the C2Q? I have a flower-style Zalman one that I can send your way if it would help :toast:

    You know I am hoping they RMA this board and give me back say a 880G or AM3 style board. Would rather have DDR3

    That would be sweet brandon if they would.


    That 1055t system you have is very capable of 3.5 to 4k ppd.

    I have doubts though cause you can plainly see the burnt marks but it would only be a 10$ waste if they dont

    Can't do that on the C2Q, it's a work machine and I'm not allowed to install my own upgrades. I am allowed to install whatever software I want though. :laugh:

    I've been too busy to play around with OC'ing on this motherboard. I played with the one second OC software once but it lowered the speed on my ram and made my machine feel slower. Once I have time after getting married next month I should be able to push to a decent OC. I do have an H50 so temps shouldn't be an issue. :D

    I was just digin around my storage building for something my wife asked for and found a P4 system LOLZ I took it out of the case to find the VGA fan seized and the Caps next to the CPU bulged and some leaking. I thought "Whatever" and tried to boot it up and BAM! installing windows now on it.

    If you have at least a 45-watt soldering iron, I bet you could replace those caps. You know the capacitance and voltage rating you would need, right?

    Nope just goofing off but I did test to see if it would play movies on my 1080P TV and it does nicely so I may just use when my wife wants to watch a movie or something.

    Yes I could but its not worth the time.

    Congrats to RadEd on the upcoming wedding :toast:

    As far as your X6 overclock, my 1045T is @3.1Ghz pulling around 4k ppd with temps in the mid 40's on the cores and about 50C on the die using only a stock heatpipe cooler.

    Is your chip the 95 or the 125w version?

    brandon had his at 3.5 or 3.6 iirc ... see if he remembers his settings

    Also, another forum member had a thread going on OC'ing his 1055T (think it was el mayo)

    Hi! I'm from the Internet
    Looks Like I am limited to somewhere between 230 and 240 on the fsb. 230 it's rock stable, 240 it won't load windows.
