Added a bit, mostly on ram, but said a few things about good motherboards. See what you think, also, WTH does TCCD stand for??? I can't remember for my life, and everyone I ask doesn't know either. :banghead:

I dont remember the specifics off the top of my head, but TCCD is like a model number.

T= something
C= something
C= something

Usually voltage, density, etc.
the last D for TCCD however, Im pretty sure is for DDR500 speed (250mhz), and C is 200mhz spec.

Kinda like how BH-5 is a model number for ddr400. (5ns I think) ;)

Ya, maybe I will just not say what it stands for.:D Does the little bit I added for hardware for overclocking look good to you?

Its alright.. from nova scotia, so I'm guessing your not native to the english language.(or more appropriately maybe, american... lol). Props for being as good as you are though :)

I'll be running through it a bit now to fix things for ya :cool:

I also added a small bit about the celeron M, because its a viable option for cheap dothan systems, and reworded a bit of the ram thing because it seemed kindof confusing if I were a beginner reading it.. (clarified it mostly)

Djbbenn, that is the longest and most thought out part research guide I've seen. Congratulations! Oh yes and according to "Nubis" at forums here, TCCD is...

TCCD refers to the actual IC's used in RAM. the IC's (Integrated Circuits) are the actual black chips on the RAM stick. TCCD are todays current best overclockers reaching high FSB's with little voltage. BH-5's used to be the best, and many argue still are, but to really get the most out of them requires over 3.2v generally which most people either can't do without a volt mod, or simply the fact it's not as safe to run that much voltage 24/7.

I started this sooooo long ago LOL... I totally forgot about it. W1z was looking through it to get it going, but next thing I knew it, was 2006 and the guide was for 2005. I started to update it again, but I forgot about it again... Perhaps I should finish it, but W1z doesn't have the time to look over something so long.
