    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!

    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 :laugh:, 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

    I see that you won, and deserved it for the detailed marker work if nothing else. :D

    Is it still in working order?

    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. :cool:

    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... ;):toast:
