Then definitely don't use the Celerons, the Prescott cores won't do well with toothpaste, lol.
I've actually tried that once with this board,and even though temps were 80-85*C they were still stable without a problem.
Obiviously touching them was impossible,as they were so hot you could cook on them.
With the P4 I would only get that temp if the toothpaste was very dry.

Strange that they were stable though.
At how high were the temps I was expecting the machine to reboot to a black screen,requiring me to turn it off to let the CPU cool down.

Sad sad day for me. My last Nf2 board took a dump. Bios went wacky and now won't do nothing. I am going to see if I can find a replacement bios chip. I still have other 462 boards including a Via kt880 board which is a very nice board and it actually holds its own against nforce 2 boards.

Oh that sucks bro! Hopefully you can find a replacement bios chip for it.

I think there is an outfit that sells all kinds of them..........Hmm I think it is called "bios man" or something like that.

Yep, found it: http://www.biosman.com/replacement.htm

Maybe check with them. I think they do a lot of selling on Fleabay as well.

Seems that HP thought about having 2 PCI-E slots....maybe for SLI?
i dont think so since it would be single slot and X16/X4 electrically, at last not SLI since it wouldnt get the SLI ready from nV (need a X8 minimal iirc) but CFX has no minimum, like my FM2A88M Ex4+ who has Crossfire ready and can only do x16/x4 2.0/2.0 or X16/X4 3.0/2.0 (with a Kaveri Apu).

EDIT... wait ... the Powercolor 5450 is single slot ... and cheap enough for me to try something with that DC7900 ahahahah ... (either way i need a 2nd 5450 i will never run a GMA 3100/4500 again)

wish i had someplace like that :(
yeah ... on 3 PC's they sent to the dump only 1 was not re usable (DC7600 PIV S775) the 2 other :

DC7700p
tech diagnostic : motherboard fried,
my experience : onboard video out of order (work fine until you install the video driver)

cost of the reparation: less than 27chf for a 5450
bonus: free Win XP Pro license (even with the end of support i still love XP )

DC7900
tech diagnostic: motherboard fried (Uh? does he know his job?) and PSU too (oh i bet he added PSU to make believe he was knowing what he did )
my experience: oh well started just fine on the VGA or the DP after removing some dust and other joyful things... seems that one SATA port recognize the HDD in the bios but not in win7 (working on it)

cost of the reparation : 0chf ... aherm ...
bonus: free Win Vista Business license (whaaattt maybe its vista but still it is free .... on a second thought i think i will keep it under 7 Pro ... )

Okay, I talked about this a couple of weeks ago..........:laugh:

Wait for it.............









This sucker includes dual Opteron 285 dual cores.
Thinking I might throw this together and put Windows Server 2012 Essentials on it just to mess around.


Has 6 gigs of ECC ram and them crazy solid copper heat sinks!
Even still includes the video card chip that you can swap for single card or SLi.
This thing weights a ton with them heat sinks.

Only problem is; the north bridge fan is junk. However I am thinking I might be able to pull it apart and put some sewing machine oil in it and I might be able to save it for awhile LOL.

Ya know, in theory it should. I think it would depend on the application being run. Several applications don't utilize dual processors. I know some use multiple cores, but there are a lot that won't use multiple processors.

I mean in terms of performance.For example,how would Sony Vegas 11 work on that system and if it's as fast as a high-end AM2 system.
One thing I noticed on my 2 rigs,is that while my AM2 is slower on Windows 7,the other rig (Socket 478,P4 1.7 Willamette,896MB DDR400 RAM,80GB SATA HDD)is very fast.The 478 rig runs Vista Home Premium SP2.

Oh jeez, I would think it would run circles around an AM2 system running something like Sony Vegas. Have to remember, that was specifically designed to run server type programs and utilize the multiple processors.

I can't imagine an AM2 performing near what a dual opteron 285 system would.

Also keep in mind, the Opteron 285 was made to run multiple applications and mainly designed for running in pairs. They are still very capable as a single chip but it really shined when coupled with another one.

They were near $400 when released also. Crazy.

Just for reference, check out some of the personal reviews on the Egg:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16819103004

Granted, I don't hold much trust in NewEgg personal reviews, but some of these really spell it out; " I have two of these running and they can''t be slowed down. I run very graphic intensive applications and these work wonderfully. AMD has produced a fantastic processor here."
