G80 ran hotter, and had broken H264 hardware decoding. oh and G80 didnt have HDMI audio either.
I will try to do some benching this weekend with them, see how they do.
If you ever decide to get rid of one of them, let me know! i can do some trading with a 8600GTS if you would like
I'll keep you posted if I Do
Can an Athlon II x2 be unlocked to a x3 or x4? Or is that just for the Phenom series?
No. I think the X3 can be unlocked to an X4 of even a PhII, but the X2s are native dual cores and can't be unlocked
There are some but they were the very early ones.
The give away that any Athlon II might be hiding a Deneb die under the lid is to look at the core code printed on the chip. You can figure that out here at cpu-world. If the core code includes the Athlon and Phenom then there is a Deneb core underneath. Whether any of it can be unlocked or not is any guess until tested.
It shows that my core code is only good for the Athlon II X2, Turion II Dual-Core Mobile, and Turion II Ultra Dual-Core Mobile. Thanks for the info anyways.
At least you know what to look for now. I cruse ebay when I'm looking for either an Athlon or Phenom. Usually people will have already tested them and sell them as being able to unlock and its just a matter of the board your using whether you will have the same results.
I got my X3 435, 550BE, and 555BE all off ebay without paying anything over retail price and actually a couple of them a little below (not to brag just so you know). All were confirmed working before hand, have never given me any problems, and clock pretty well.
I think the 435 is the jewel of them all since when I just leave it as is, under my D14, 40C is hard to reach even when using 1.4v core and cpu-nb and pushing 3600 core and 2500 cpu-nb. Runs nice and cool all the day long. Fully unlocked and running stock speeds and volts (1.325 core, 1.175 cpu-nb) under the D14 will never see 40C regardless.
I'd really like to get my hands on a C3 with a Deneb core. I think that would be a real gem if this 435 is any hint.
Threw everything into my Lian Li Rocketfish.. I'll get things organized better once my mobo waterblock gets in.
You're making far better use of that RF than I ever did of mine....I remember having an ITX rig in mine
Ha! That would look funny, you could paint a mural around it!
Looking good erocker. Glad to see the RF is finally back. Now gotta mod the baby!
Lol, the furnace vent hides some modding shame. laugh: My plans are to move the HDD rack right up behind the PSU. That should leave me room for the two xspc 120 radiators. The Koolance triple will go up top, and the pump/res. combo will sit at the bottom of the 5.25" bays. Hopefully my CHIV block gets here soon and I'll take the day off and do it.
Lucky man being able to take a day off.. lol. I hope it comes soon also man. The idea's that your thinking up sounds good. can't wait for it to happen.
let me know how the block works out for you buddy, really tempted to get one. I havent watercooled a nb and sb in 5 maybe 6 years..... lol
Here it was
There's more cables than there is computer in that thing!
LOL ION such a large case and so small a mobo
Every piece of that rig except the HDD and optical have been sold....but that was a nice rig, low power, not too loud, and reasonably fast. Although a bit overkill in terms of case
here are my rigs ATM from the outside. Not very often you get to see them closed and how everyone else sees them.you can see the old CRT in the background on my 2nd rig
My setup ATM:
Currently with a 9600GT that has as much vRAM as I have sysRAM
Cable management has deteriorated, but the PSU seems to be doing better now that it can intake air easier
that being said, I am curious...would the airflow of the rear exhaust fan interfere with the intake of the psu? what airflow direction are the H50 fans facing?
H50 is intake.....not that it really matters, this computer hasn't seen it's side panel in months
The front fan doesn't move much air shadedshu), so it's impact on the PSU air supply is minimal
oh there is no side panel??? Well nevermind then
