It seems that re-capping was a good move. Gflops went up by 1.2, from 5.5 to 6.7
That's make me want to recap my board, but all of them seem in good condition.
Looks like I'll have to settle for 2.8Ghz, unless the copper heatsinks I'll get later improve the situation. Won't boot at 3Ghz no matter the voltage.
I got the sleeving kit but I'm still waiting for the molex pin remover so I started to sleeve what I could:
You might be able to do it with a firm piece of wire like a paper clip or a small screwdriver like a jeweler's type.
I think I'll wait. It's my first time doing this so I'd like to make it as easy as possible. I don't want to end up breaking one of the tabs on a pin.
Just got the pin removers in. De-pinning (is that a word?) the PSU...
I am down to 1 s939 system now. But it is still crunching along with a 4400+ in it now. Still running Linux but I have another cruncher in the work to replace it. So I will take it down and reinstall win xp on it and play with it.
It is a pain-in-the-ass job. I hope you enjoy the sleeving process.
Didn't turn 100% right (specially the ATX plug) but it's done.
I ran out of 9mm heatshrink Only 30cms for a complete PSU??? And that's after removing the PCIE and SATA cables :shadedshu
Rig is 95% done. Just waiting for some cables.
Since the build is practically done on the hardware side I'm now trying my hand with W7 32bit. If it works I think I'll stick to it.
did you heatshrink over the zipties?
Also W7 32bit didn't work. AGP 8x @ PCI mode... :shadedshu I give up,this is going to be an XP machine
XP running fine. I ran into a problem trying to run 3Dmark (System info error). Working on it,
In the mean time, IBT:
You may want to read this for a headsup, blame NV for this stupid crap.
NF2 combined with a R300 Series GPU is capable of running Aero and gaming.
Just NV never released a Proper AGP Gart to support Vista or 7 or even fix the Error when using a X2 CPU with Radeon or even GF graphics.
which 3DMark Program were you trying to use?
all 3 of them
you dont think its because of XP?
IDK XP after SP3 seemed to break alot of stuff.
here is a possible solution for NF2/NF3 users with Windows 7 and a Dual Core CPU
IDK, they were running fine in a previous install.
Trwov I have been waiting for you to finish this thing like a kid a Christmas waiting to open presents. Keep up the great work man .
ok, got 3dmark running. The Futuremark System Info was the culprit.
I've been doing some tests and I think that with the FX60 I'm hitting the upper limits of how much power can the board deliver to the CPU. I can't get anything above 200Mhz on the FSB to be stable, no matter the voltage... maybe a beffier PSU could help but that's a big if, plus I don't think I'm really stressing the PSU to the point of being unstable.
I've installed cooper heatsinks on the VRMs and the situation didn't improve so I'm going to have to live with a 200Mhz overclock. At least that'll make it as fast as the FX57.
Intel Burn Test
The OpenGL accuracy test fails (???) so it doesn't give a score:
Street Fighter 4
Devil May Cry 4
RE5 Game test
RE5 Fixed Test
Lost Planet 2 test A
Lost Planet 2 test B
The Last Remant
Final Fantasy XIV
Where are all the PCmark? Jezz, I need to find all those games to have a DM with ya.
Youve got to be shitting me, I threw one away at the beginning of this year, exactly like that (though dont remember the fab#). Didn't figure I would have a use for it, and would probably bend the pins whenever I moved out of my house.
I was going to donate it to you. Just for kicks ill check and see if I for sure did throw it away.
TRWOV- I was reading through the thread and noticed you had a PHY Lan Issue, I just wanted to mention some XP drivers do work with windows 7. Since you're XP only on this machine it dont matter anymore. I Assume this is 32bit you're running correct?
I could use one thats for sure as Trwov got lucky and got one for a steal.
