Here are a couple pic's I took of my rig using a Nikon D70s Tamron 90mm and SB-600 flash unit.
^^ Really nice picture.
is that a ram stick with a CPU on it?
They look like Old Pentium MMX chips maybe?
Nope. Socket 370 was the first chips to feature FCPGA, and that was the Pentium 3 days.
It's ECC DDR2. The extra chip is the controller that makes the error corrections.
FBDIMMS to be more precise
I dunno that there is any difference. There must be though...damn acronyms. Perhaps teh FB-DIMM refers to the complete module, and ECC refers to the IC compatibility or some such nonsense.
ECC refers to the error correction related stuff, FBDIMM refers to the kind of module (like SODIMM is for laptops or whatever). Could be wrong though.
the FB in FBDIMM stands for Fully Buffered and is explained better here
Huh. Completely different memory architecture. Uses a different bus, even.
Not something commonly seen in desktops...I don't know anything about FB-DIMMs, normal memory I know a fair bit...FB-DIMMs run with a bus clock 4x that of the IC. Cool stuff I have no idea about.
Nice random pic, Athlon!
FB-Dimms are used in servers and Intel Skulltrail mobos...
@t_ski Like I already expected
I got these free from the Christmas contest over at overclockersclub.com.
nice!! OCC has some good contests, and a lot of them. it's a great community over there as well.
How do they sound?
Very good so far. Just done a bit of gaming with them and trying different options.
Never had a high quality headset before, so they are definitely an upgrade over the much less expensive Sonys I've been using.
Very comfortable to wear too. Completely cover my ears and blocks out most external noise.
Thanks. I've learned a few things from you guys.
Use natural light, no flash, and nice white background.
