    those slot A athlons were mental overclockers, never seen chips clock as well as them majority could hit a 75-80% overclock

    weeheee i recieved 2 on 4 of my waited delivery (sad the cpu werent in one of those) but i recieved a fine piece of Thermalright engineering: The Ancestor of the Silver arrow (or was it the Cogage who is the ancestor ... duh i cant remember)

    THERMALRIGHT Inferno Fire eXtinguisher(IFX)-14 and IFX-10 backside HS ... 840gr of pure pleasure without the fan ofc, im waiting on 2 TY-147 or 3 for it adding either 320gr or 480gr more to it xD [​IMG]
    the backside IFX-10, so thick alu blades ...
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    and the IFX-14 pure beauty, drop that on your feets and you're good for a reconstructive surgery... :eek:
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    only 4 heatpipes versus 6 on the Macho but WOW HEATPIPES! and i dont have thin pinky...
    [​IMG]
    also the bundle include a 4g syringe of Chill Factor
    [​IMG]
    as you can see i have more than needed since i usualy use Arctic MX-4 but that pics is fun
    the 2g satchel on the bottom is the Chill Factor II bundled with the Macho
    and this HS was sold to a ridiculous price of 20$ almost good as new with all accessory inclued... i paid 45$ for the Macho and 2g of CFII huhu naahhh they include a free 9.5" Ph2 screwdriver with the macho :D


    now it will go in a not so much nostalgic build but on a 2009 PhenomII X2 511 (Overkill isnt it?) it make me wonder ... i have a Thermalright HR-02 Macho Rev. A in my main build i wonder wich one would performe the best :D PhenomII X4 955 should be no challenge for the IFX-14 as it is not for the HR-02, or i can go passive and rely only on the 140mm Fractal Silent R2 with the X2 511 huuhuu

    [​IMG]
    i think i can go semi passive with the 140mm back and 230mm top
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    PSU in place and cable routing in a case that recieved bad review about its cable management
    [​IMG]
    just in case you wonder ... yes i plugged the 4+4 12v after puting all inside ... im masochist
    [​IMG]
    RED TAPE! to ease the back panel closing xD and yes the black cable crossing on top is the cable of the 140mm
    [​IMG]
    the IFX-10 will have 2 coolink SWIF120 in front and since i dont need the HDD rack it will be full airflow
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    a bit gettho but if it works then its a good one! its a Kingston ram cooler put in place of the 2 60mm slot in the Tt E S
    [​IMG]
    the CM TX3 Evo used previously ... almost small as the IFX-10 :D

    oh well the un shroud "athlon" was a PII or PIII have to seek model
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    ok more info its a PIII 500mhz

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    btw removing the cooler on the Athlon also removed a bit of my right index (rather a huge bit ... damn)

    good news the Athlon is a 2nd serie Pluto core (i hunt 1st serie but 2nd are fine tho, the older the more value they have for me )

    Geforce 6800. This thing is stupidly loud. Should probably replace the paste and blow the dust out of it.

    ATHLOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOONNN SLOT A wich core wich serie!!!!!11!!

    judging by the number it might be a Serie 2 Pluto Core just like mine but a 600mhz instead of 700mhz

    Slot A Athlon feels more premium than intel's slot1 ... metal IHS back and the HS mounting ... cooler master HS aswell? mine choped of a bit of my right index as i wrote previously :D

    Hi! I'm from the Internet
    I haven't a clue what the core is for either of my Slot A procs. One is a 600 mhz and the other in the Win 98 rig is a 800 mhz. And the 600 does have a Cm hsf while the 800 had a cm hsf, I changed it to a Thermaltake golden Orb.

    ARGON serie 1!!!!!

    here is yours and mine aside in the CPU world comparison
    http://www.cpu-world.com/Compare/29...s_AMD_Athlon_700_MHz_(AMD-K7700MTR51B_A).html

    the 800 should be a Thunderbird (serie 4 iirc)
    this
    http://www.cpu-world.com/CPUs/K7/AMD-Athlon 800 - AMD-A0800MPR24B A.html Thunderbird model 4
    or that
    http://www.cpu-world.com/CPUs/K7/AMD-Athlon 800 - AMD-K7800MPR52B A.html Pluto model 2

    no biggies between them http://www.cpu-world.com/Compare/27...s_AMD_Athlon_800_MHz_(AMD-K7800MPR52B_A).html unless you look the spec comparison
