Guy like me caring about mother earth like to recycle old parts and make system back to life. Problem is that people go crazy and overprice old hardware so it ends up that everyone have parts but no full system. These parts will end up months later in dump probably.

Send it to me so I can upgrade from my 4600+ :p

Nevermind you are too far. :(
Haha, yeah maybe few kilometres too far :D


Updated the bios from my #2 rig and seemed to help in overclocking:


Before updating to the newest beta (I had previously the latest non-beta) the max fsb what I got was 302MHz, higher than that didn't even boot :toast:

I'm quite sure too :D

382 is currently the max which I was able to get even to Windows, but I couldn't yet get that ~3GHz p95 stable. Must try harder tomorrow, maybe I find out some trick to push it more ;)

That's a 945 Express chipset board, isn't it? Pretty impressive you got it this far, but CPU willing, 400 is achievable.
What do you have your NB voltage at right now?

What do you have your NB voltage at right now?
Yes, this has 945P chipset. For some reason, the NB voltage setting DISAPPEARED from bios? :laugh: Not a smallest clue why it did that :D

As I said, I'll be continuing to tweak the crap out of it later, but even that 380fsb 24/7 would be ok for now. The GPU in that machine is HD3870 Ultimate (passive) what truly needs some new thermalpaste because it runs hot as hell with those old pastes. Had to put an old fan from Athlon64 boxed cooler to cool it down :D

But well, let's see how that 2GB DDR2-800 module will work what I'm getting from my buddy later today. Officially I think that this P5LD2 doesn't even support 2GB modules, but I found out that at least some Corsair 2GB sticks have worked. So I'm pretty sure that it's gonna work and I can finally toss out those damn 533MHz 256MB sticks. :)

Edit: But damn, I didn't remember these CPUs run so cool, I'm running this with an old copper-core Intel Boxed-cooler (those which came with Pentium D's) and the cooler doesn't make barely any noise. Also, the temps are ~60C even in full load. :) And runs Sims 3 pretty well, my girlfriend plays it pretty much on that PC. :D

well low battery Canon SX100is doesn't do better pics than my UMI X1 ... i wonder if its really battery related or am i a such bad photographer ... will retry later but for now :

Arima is Rhapsody yep but the PCB is blue and they have more electrolyte cap than chemcap.
IMG_1124.JPG IMG_1125.JPG IMG_1134.JPG IMG_1130.JPG
the socket H1 is less behind the HDD/ODD and more in the airflow of the front fan i have installed, swapping cpu allowed me to see which one has a overheat problem: going from 29° to 99° in a matter of second, it has to be not normal ... since the second one with the same HSF keep at 28°


my favorit type of pics : the flash make the fan appear still but the rotation make the wings go semi transparent (and they are solid black/white)

Damn it would be cool if it would be possible to "quad crossfire" them :D

Finally got the DDR2-800 module and seems to work flawlessly even it wasn't in ESD bag, and I had lying in my pocket until i plugged it in my 2nd rig :toast:


edit: Damn that machine had a real boost when upgraded from 1.75GB to 3GB! Now running prime95 on that so I'll find the highest max overclocks, the other memory module is a Quimonda 1GB 667MHz so I'll need to test one MHz after another, since the RAM runs now at 740MHz :D Max temps 71C at 2963MHz 1.44V on prime95 :toast:

Here are today's results: http://valid.canardpc.com/5xpbhx

Even 1MHz more fsb and prime95 crashes on other core in 15 minutes. Guess I'll leave that on 2.96GHz, and buy an E6600 or something else, they are something like 10-15e price as used in Finland :toast:

It's been some time since I haven't been here,and I fixed my tablet,so I'd think of taking some pictures of my rig,as I've got a new board.(ASUS P4P800-VM)
Before doing that what CPU should I choose for it?Here are the options:
a)1.7GHz Pentium 4,Willamette core
b)2.40GHz Celeron D,Prescott core
c)2.66GHz Celeron D,Prescott core
By the way,I replaced the old HDD I had in there (10GB Seagate U5 Series,IDE)with a bigger SATA HDD (80GB WDC Caviar SE)and installed Windows Vista Home Premium SP2.

I would use the Pentium 4. Celeron's are pretty sub par really. I think you would see better performance with the P4.

That, and the Slowerons are Pres-hot cores. Not to mention the P4 is a Willamette. Should OC decently.

Okay.
I took a picture of it,here it is.
EDIT:Whoops,posted too soon so image didn't upload.Fixed.

I don't need OC for 2 reasons:
1.I use toothpaste as a "poor man's thermal paste"(which does it's job quite good,40-45*C idle)
2.This board's BIOS doesn't have any OC features.

Then definitely don't use the Celerons, the Prescott cores won't do well with toothpaste, lol.
