Oh you're sneeky . But join anyways, or no Counter Strike:GO for you.
That looks pretty awesome!
GO GREEN or GO HOME! Nice build bro!
FX60, haven't seen one in quite a while now.
Is 2.8GHz the highest you can get? I remember seeing people run them at 3.2GHz+ 24/7.
Very clean build, I really like it. Nice work, man!
I bet people are "green" with envy!
Well, no one else said it.
Yeah, that's the max I can get with that board. I think that I'm limited by the power delivery circuitry as I've seen reports of people getting theirs to 250HT with single core Athlons and in fact that's why I used DDR500 RAM for this build. I guess a dual core comes close to the power delivery limits of the board as even after re-capping and putting some heatsinks on the VRMs I can't get it past 2.8Ghz (multi at x15 doesn't even boot) and anything beyond 205HT is unstable. Either that or the FX60 I got is a lemon :/
There's still room for improvement, specially in cable management but the thing is like a jigsaw puzzle now , I have to take it down in a specific order or some component would block another so I'm leaving it as is for the time being.
For anyone interested here's the build log with benchmarks: http://www.techpowerup.com/forums/showthread.php?t=161350
Speaking of cardboard computer's... Anyone remember this??
It was for the Vote for the best PC in a box Challenge by: p o s_pc back in 2010, original thread here.
T77's Cardboard 900
damn this is hilarious !
Thank you! It was all in good fun.
I see that you won, and deserved it for the detailed marker work if nothing else.
Is it still in working order?
I think it may start rotting soon...... Unless you keep it in your fridge!
I still have the case fully intact (and not rotting), but there is no hardware in it at the moment. We should throw a 2012/13 PC-in-a-box contest.. Hmmmm
Well, if there is one I have a project that's been on my back burner for quite some time that would qualify. Just have to find the time and money to do it.
Oh, woopsies, wrong thread..... I thought this was about the pumpkin pc.... cause that would be rotting
Okay it's official! I will be holding a contest for the Best Cardboard PC! Just give me a day or two to figure everything out and what prizes will be involved, I will ask the mods if this challenge is acceptable as well.
Stay tuned my fellow TPU'ers...
That's what I thought you meant.
Me and my big mouth. Now I've got to do it. Somehow.
In this time.
Why yes, I remember that
I'm in (if i have time). Got an idea already
Got a GT520 for Physx. I wonder if I can run it along with my PPU.
Finally worked up the energy to lug this monster down two flights of stairs to get better images of it.....
Looks really good!
