expect even higher scores on thursday then
I can see I'm going to have to end up buying the HR-03-GTX for myself at this rate.
hey, ill do a proper review on thursday, let that be your decision maker
We really need a User Review Section
I know, have you PMed W1zz about it?
Yeah he said he didnt like the idea
Im up for it, get a petition going.
Also, gunna try to break 4GHz on super low volts tonight.
And, you know you wanna fellas.
Wish there was something on there you were looking for which I had to sell, I need monies
Offer me something... i may need it.
All I have is 2 x 1GB DDR2 XMS2, a s478 Intel Cooler and an AGP 9600 Pro 256mb, lol.
lol, maybe not then, haha.
Alex, i noticed my highest fsb had not been added. I edited my post to show the pic properly. Page 13, post 308.
400 x 10 @ 1.2v :
You people talking about KFC the other day made me crave it...I had to go with the girlfriend last night and get a 15 piece bucket.
Ace, this is your screenshot of 550fsb so Alex don't need to go looking...and its on page 11 not 13.
Good to see us P45 folk still kicking along A small challenge to all: Make me proud, and break 600FSB!
when i can be arsed, i'll aim for the 600FSB break too.
Busy looking/buying things at the moment.
Oh and Alex, i have the 1901 BIOS.
First post updated, did I miss anyone?
And @ aCid888*, ace80s post was on page 13 for me, it depends what settings you have in the User CP
I have it displaying more posts per page....I totally forgot about that
Either way, I posted the SS here so you didn't need to go looking to verify it.
*Looks at his E5200 and sighs*
The highest FSB I got was 420, and it could not load windows.
I might go hunting for second hand quad cores.
Cheers for that but I had to find it anyway as I link back to it in the first post
Get a E8400 and be happy.
Old quads aren't the way to go for high-fsb speeds, you need 45nm quads to break 4GHz easily and they aren't cheap.
We have quite a few high clocked Q6600s in the Highest FSB scores.
Still the best VFM quad IMO. I cant justify the extra on a 45nm, not that I wouldnt have one if I found a good deal
Q6600's are great, but top out usually around 3.6GHz for an older one with acceptable volts.
E8400 will live 24/7 @ 2000fsb/4GHz very happily and unless you spunk the extra cash on a 45nm quad I can't see a point in getting one....65nm are harder to cool, give less returns for the volts you give them and are old now.
I like my dual's as clocking is fun and getting high GHz is always exciting.
Here's a SS so you can add what BIOS version I use.
High Clocks are fun, but I havent really seen much benefit in exceeding 3.6 GHz, i didnt even really notice a difference from 3.2 to 3.6.
Its only nice having over 3.6 for benches and e-penis. I only took my Q6600 to 4 GHz for those reasons, lol.
