should be am3
that means i'm going to have to sell off my AM2+ and grab a AM3 board
@ Erazer & pos
Pretty sure you would need an 8 series to run them but don't quote me on it. Does thuban have quad channel only or can it also do dual channel? i'm thinking if it does dual then it COULD possibly be backwards capable with AM2+ boards.
Looks like dual channel capable & 125W. Odds are that current 140W capable(mainly 790GX & 785G) AM2+ boards would only need a bios update.
if thats the case that would be a nice drop in upgrade... Having a i7 and X6 crunching that would be some nice points
EDIT:It seems i will have to have a DDR3 board
Also JR are you still looking to get a different board?
I was told over at OCN that my 785G board would support the Phenom II X6 (or whatever they are going to call it ) with a BIOS update, so if I still have my Phenom setup by then (may get bored and get an i7 before that), I'll upgrade to an X6 for the PPD boost
I guess I would probably rather have a Phenom II X6 than an i7 860, despite that it would probably be slower in WCG.
cant wait to see how much ppd amd x6 could do guess im gonna wait lil longer to buy new WCG rig even tho im really having bad itch to buy
almost bought another q9550 for 169$ damn microcenter w ther sales
i only paid alittle more then that for my i7
on subject of i7.. I am going to reinstall the OS i am having alot of problems and i'm sure its not the OC as it passes Linx as many times as i ask it to. So i am going to put windows 7 on it after i reinstall XP 64bit on my other 2 crunchers.today all the crunchers get a fresh OS
MC got i7 920 for 199$
thats what i would grab if i was you
Thats a heck of a deal!!!
might as well ask u guys, im thinking getting i7 860 (225$) gonna be mainly for crunching im looking for a good mAtx board able to OC pretty well and cheap good ddr3 mem any suggestions? i preffer to shop in MC
how many gigs of ram? how many PCI-E slots you need?
4g one pcie should be fine but mainly gonna use onboard, again it mainly for crunching
Anyone ever have issues with LinX crashing your display drivers? I really seem to hate Linx, think I will stick to OCCT Linpack fo stability testing on my WVG rigs.
might grab the ram but i need MB with onboard vid
if i am right i don't think the i7 can be used with onboard video only the i5 and i3 with the built in GPU can
hmmm well that sux, i need to do some more research
i thought mAtx board with onboard vid can run i7s, wow totally got the wrong idea
the i7 is down for the count i can't get it to do shit but BSOD even everything all stock and even when installing windows it crashes. I have tried everything that i can
you need the new i3/i5 6xx series i think to use the onboard vid as the gpu is in the cpu, and you need a H55 board, not a p55
Ew, that's gotta suck hard. Clear the cmos, pull the battery... make sure the QPI voltage is within .5v of the memory voltage
Try that and let us know Tim..
already done all of that. and still no go. It does suck hard. I am going to work with it alittle more and see if i can atleast get it to post again
Hrm... boot with only the essentials. one stick of memory, one drive, one optical drive, use onboard video if you have it
so how did this happen... it just up and randomly started being gay?
yes it randomly started being gay. It was working fine and i went to restart it because it wouldn't load anything and it started that shit. I got it into windows now. I'm not sure what fixed it but i did all of the following
reseat CPU and heatsink
cleaned gold pins on ram
blew out the CPU and ram sockets
reseated GPU heatsink(needed done anyways)
put a fan over the NB
i think that is about everything. I am now running LinX to be sure its stable
