Thats what I was thinking, or put it in the other cruncher and sell that cpu, Also need a new SSD.
A 1045T should get you $100 any day of the week
I dont think I would need to reinstall O/S, if I was just doing a swap.
You should be able to get it done with just a BIOS reset....
have to shut the laptop down as its getting too hot and its going with the kids and their mother when they move at the end of the month
This is the exact upgrade I just did. I expected more performance than I got (judging solely on 7-zip performance, which should have been excellent). The 1100T (and PII X6s in general) are still rather good processors. I managed 4GHz-4.2GHz fairly easily on my X6 (with decent voltage) and a (measly) 4.6GHz-4.8GHz on the FX with a bit of voltage (and somewhat high temps). Despite a ~14% clock speed increase on the FX, single-threaded performance actually went down (in 7-zip multi-threaded benchmark, per thread performance). It made up for this with 33% more threads, of course, but still. Actual single-threaded performance is up, thanks to the clock speed (see Anandtech bench link below)
..and yes, the OS would boot just fine between processors.
Anandtech Bench Comparison
My 5800k also never leaves 3.8ghz. It actually runs 3.6-3.8ghz. Some weird quirk in the bios. Cadaveca mentioned in his review of my motherboard and they still haven't fixed it. I do use the apu as both cpu and gpu. The ssd is fine in there because it is pretty much new. Mine is not sluggish.
Yours obviously has something very wrong by ppd and sluggishness. I used to think mine should at leach match my old phenom 965 but, I have now accepted it wont. I don't know what to do for performance for mine.
Thanks for the info
If you can keep it cool (sig says Corsair water? Should work), the FX would be an upgrade. I'd say if you can get a good price for the FX, it'd probably be a good way to go. All up to preference though.
(Oh, and I suppose my overclock isn't as bad as I thought. People with my board, my proc and water are actually seeing less speed on more volts with no word on temps. Considering I'm hovering around the 50c mark under load, I may have more room.)
You may want to consider @TRWOV 's experiences with his amd rigs too.
@manofthem, I got my 3930 just now. Unless I have extra complicatations I should have everything switched out tomorrow and what not. How far along are you?
I have an old H50 that I would upgrade also.
thats next on my pc list, to build an AMD box either A10 or FX, depends on my money situation in the coming months
With 4 kids, 3 still at home its AMD for the cost all the way.
I posted these a bit ago in the PC ATM thread. Just finished my rig late last night, everything back together and running pretty well. Also got the i3 moved into the old Haf but no pics of that yet.
I wonder if I can Crunch on my LG-G2
Lift for said Durango. Love mine.
2000 because I use it too much.
Seems like it might be between 2500 and 3000 at 4,2 GHz.
Yes, you can. There's a BOINC client you can run on an android device while it's plugged in.
I was hoping for more
Shouldn't it be more? I would think it would equal a phenom quad at 4-4.2ghz.
Maybe if I overclocked it and threw in a dedicated GPU...
Do you really think a dedicated gpu would help? An overclock certainly would help.
@james888 how's that rig maintenance going? Looking forward to seeing some pics thrown up when you finish
Two down and the x79 to go. I have 6 cores from 2 cpu's crunching again. Ended up having some friends come to town surprising me, but taking me from my work. I have many pictures taken, and will post when finished.
X79 6 core running. I desire to overclock it first before it crunches. Test for stability and what not. Previous owner had it at 4.7ghz at lower volts for this kind of chip so... Excited.
Just a guess really. Honestly I have no clue, but I'd be willing to try. Should at least help a little due to the fact that the GPU shares system ram, so a dedicated card should free that up.
I upgraded this rig to Ubuntu 13.10, and it seems like there is a small amount of graphics corruption: the cursor is squished with a floating box below it.
My turn next for a build since I just finished up the two I was working on
This is a rebuild of my folding rig so I can dedicate the 2nd FX-8350 to full time crunching
Specs (some new/used and some parts from my other rigs):
HD 7970 LCS
SeaSonic M12II 750
CM HAF 932 case (my old one- it's a bit beat up but still great for a water cooling setup)
Just need to get a decent HDD for it
