    Cooler Master Introduces New Vortex Plus Low Profile Cooler

    What about Xilence's slim models? On the AMD side there are 2 good-looking slim coolers w/heatpipes from Xilence. I don't know their performance but 2 heatpiped version supports max 95 Watt TDP CPUs on the other hand there is no info about 4 hp model...

    AMD Brings in New Desktop CPUs, Cuts Prices

    It is said Athlon X2 processors can't be overclocked much, so it is better to buy the fastest one you can afford. But this one is different. 3.25 GHz is nearly %150 of the standart speed.

    There is also an option in BIOS to change DRAM timings manually. If you set it to 333 MHz rather than Auto, that can help.

    Yes, I think it'll probably do. I overclocked mine to 218 MHz FSB and it is running quite well.

    I don't know how to do it exactly, I heard about this issue yesterday. Another user "Wile E" advised me to change the multiplier to an even number or overclock the system a bit to match the expected memory speed. There isn't a setting about core multipliers in my BIOS but I can change the FSB...

    Yes, a Brisbane. Mobo is Asus M2A-MX featuring AMD 690V and SB600 chipsets identical to yours. edit: It seems 300x2=600. But it often changes depending on the workload if C&Q is enabled.

    I have a 4200+ too but its multi is 11 giving 2.2 GHz. max core speed. Cool&Quiet is enabled in my system. The multiplier decreases to 5 when idle, enabling 200 MHz. memory speed but generally it's 9 while on the net giving 360 MHz actual speed. I see 399 MHz rarely. Also, the FSB/DRAM divider...

    Thx. Does this issue only affect Athlon ULV types? It's not mentioned for Phenoms.

    DDR2 800 combined with 5050e According to this article from TweakTown, because of a divider based setup on the CPU speed, the built-in memory controller in Athlon X2 4850e processors can't handle DDR2 800 memories at full speed. They can work at a speed of max. 712 MHz. What can be the max...
