whats the status on the board?
btw can i join
also .. the package still hasnt arrived ...
Yeah you can.
how ur mobo been acting now?
Oddly enough it doesnt want to POST now at 430FSB... that is ODD. I'm guessing I need a new NB cooler, like 22AUD for a thermalright one
ok? what model?
can you believe that the usps still hasnt sent back my stuff to the return address?
Wha.... thats bad :shadedshu
what Vmch are u using for 430fsb?
ok, im joining,
core 2 duo @ 1.83ghz (socket m)
12" active digitizing touch screen
finger print reader
motion sensor, accelerometer, vibration sensor
windows vista buisness
80gb SATA hdd
Hm, support, eh. How about how to get my Q6600's cores to clock lower than 1.6GHz on idle?
(Not really sure what the point is in joining a club house, but may as well ...)
put ur windows power management on max battery and enable speedstep in the bios ...
I'm a *nix guy, read my specs. I have enabled SpeedStep though, that's what's allowing scaling to 1.6GHz on idle.
I found this, but it's a bit vague. Plus it doesn't give the units, I wouldn't want ondemand trying to set it to 10^6GHz or whatnot.
Edit: I presume it has to be in multiples of the front side bus freq?
exactly it has to be multiples cause what speedstep does is change the multiplier ...
reading ur article now
edit: that article seems to be over my head
Speedstep? 6 x multiplier I beleive.
Yep. I'm going to change the the conservative governer and have it so that it goes 2.4>1.6>0.8, and see how that fares. If it's too slow at scaling (as has been warned) I'll just switch back to ondemand's 2.4>1.6. But it just seems stupid to set it that high on idle when it's doing zilch.
So is it possible at all on any OS to set it lower than 1.6GHz on idle? If not, well imo that's stupid.
Woot im going to get some OCZ Ram soon, ram prices are dropping sharply now...
I just got my core2 through, with the P35 chipset
2GB OCZ Reaper 1066MHz 5-5-5-15
I've been running TAT and some prime95, wondering if you guys can shed any light on my Speedfan temps for me... and also, anyone know how to force my Zalman to run a bit faster, the mobo wants to run it permanently on the lowest speed...
Ok, it seems you -have- to use EasyTune5 to adjust the fan speeds...
yeah theyre going to drop until back to school season .. the ram i bought was for 199 .. when i bought it, 129 .. now 99.00 for 2 gb kit .. might get one more and call it a day
well i called the PO yesterday, they said they found the package, but it got lost again on transit to the return adress.
Nah... the prices for low end ram has stopped dropping, whilst the high end is still dropping.
Mad .... a friend of mine got 4 gb of crucial for 190 US
74.99 after rebate ... maddd
Around +76mV only...
it has been sent to the return address .. now for shiiping to teh courier then me, wh00t
going off to UPS 2mrw, goin be on teh other side of teh island for a while! later d00ds
Just wondering, but what kind of temps do you guys see around 3.0 ghz? My E6400 with 1.4vcore gets up to 50-53C idle with a Zalman 9500 and I thought it was a bit high... should I try reseating the heatsink?
