    dual 8800gts are so damn sexy, they will make for a decent rig even for the near future, sick oldschool rig brand.

    That PC was very good! only thing i would have changed would have been the motherboard and CPU. I would have jumped to a quad with a 790I sli board

    *EDIT* I WOULD LOVE TO HAVE A 8800 FOR MY HTPC!!

    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.

    Lol, the furnace vent hides some modding shame. :shadedshu: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. :toast:
