    Hey guys this is my personal rig....DFI Infinity UltraII M2 that i modded to SLI and my 3600+ Brisbane that can hit 3ghz. I was wondering if someone would trade me a low end skt 775 core 2 duo (dual core) and maybe a cheap over clocking mobo that supports DDR2 i know it may not be a good trade but im looking for atleast low end components it can be a conroe core w/e as long as its skt 775 dual core...and non netburst and a cheap mobo that allows fsb adjustment....im willing to nagotiate but thats all i really want.....i cant reach 3ghz anymore because my mobo has a hard time with my 2x2GB i can run 1 stick or my old 1GB sticks and get 3ghz but it has trouble handeling that much data...tested upto 305FSB heard it can go higher...ask for more info its a rockin mobo

    thnx

    Solaris.

    ne one? ill give you a laptop

    Celeron gen 1 skt 370 700mhz 128mb sdram 10gig harddrive..its a dell c500...needs a new batt and tope face platye(touch pad is dead and touch pad is connected to that)

    i know id be taking a step up and whoever adopted my rig would be taking a step down...but she's a sturdy rig and has only presented me with happyness along with problems all to common with an OCr FE: clock to high it gets mad and beeps at you.

    Dunno what ur budget could be, but you could snag an Abit IP35-E for around $90 that'll take DDR2 and Conroes up to around 500FSB...that's 3.5ghz on my e6300. I'd say make a budget that you can comp with at least mostly for after selling your current MB/CPU combo, and start doing some research. I'd have to say a good P965/P33/P35 board would treat you nicely with a budget. There are always used C2D's going for sale all over...dunno why, I ain't letting my C2D go till she fries or I get a quad core! :D

    Bump for the one and only Solaris17 (A Kickass Mod(der)! :D ) Hope someone can come through in the trade for ya!

    The E2160 would be better then the E2140 but ok... The mobo i would recommend http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813128084

    It is a P35 so i would think it would overclock good also it is a Gigabyte.

    not to intrested in crossfire....but i guess it depends....this board only supports 667 officially...but iv had 800mhz sticks in it OC'd and it didnt have a problem.....but i also booted the board with 667 ram in it also at the time...i guess i could pull the sticks i have drop the 800mhz stick in and see what happens...also if i remember correctly the board supports a ram divider in the thousands like so

    533
    667
    800
    1000

    or something i can boot to tell for sure if youd like. :)

    as for proc...any AM2 dual core its flashed with the latest bios however..it will NOT support phenom their is no support bios update for it and its not an am2+ mobo

    Also, just letting you know. an e2140 + MSI P31 Neo 2 would work well for you.

    Both good clockers and low budget inexpensive. Also, I looked at your 3dmark06 results. @3Ghz I score around 2500 marks on cpu. So just letting you know go e2140 or above.

    If you get that proc make sure you can get a board that will do at least 333-395 fsb. I noticed they perform best when mixed with loose timings and high memory frequency, usually a 4:5 divider.

    Oh and FYI, 35C acrossed both cores @ 1.44vcore is the sweet spot for 3.1Ghz on stock cooling with stock thermal paste switched out.

    EDIT: No no no, to benefit using the E1200's and e2xxx's you would need a board that does at least 333fsb. I don't think the ECS can handle it, can it?

    its down to the chipset really, ECS produces decent boards, they really do.
