All yours mad shot. I got a new PSU coming so I will be crunching a little bit again on the htpc.
So, I probably don't deserved it but, how come everybody has those cool cruncher tags? Well not everybody but, Team members have them.
Do I have to pass a test, point total, time span?
Anyways, just an observation mixed with ingnorance.
Those 2 power supplies still funtion well. I have one in my 3800+ x2 cruncher and the other is in my Kt7a server. They have served me very well.
You have to get 100k points to get the badge
This is a bad after noon .....
Ah, I see. See, I do learn something every day!
? Vas ist das?
Intel Burn Test
I think I have you covered.
Last night I took my 275W that I test with and got the cruncher back up but undervolted and running 75% so wattage I would assume to be around 125W total. Hope that will keep my numbers afloat until the new one gets here.
Great that Mad Shot helped you out was trying to figure what I could do to help but was running into dead ends
Take care of that X6 first- better to have lower points for a while than a dead system....
I was trying to sweet talk the wife into letting me buy BOWs PSU but money is tight this week
Really sorry about all this B. Wish I could had helped further but I wouldn't want you running the PSU I am about to pull. It's ok for low power stuff, it's like a 250W that's specc'd on the label for 500W. Ask him if you could do a loan, seems like a cool guy.
Same here she's been watching out for packages like a Hawk
Mine absolutely flipped out when I told her I spent the PayPal cash from selling my GT240 for a Corsair CX430. Then once I explained she changed her ways.
PS: She's a software girl. I'm a hardware guy. Deadly combination
Those cheapies really suck don't they :shadedshu
I think Bow's trying to finance a replacement mobo that UPS busted on him while in transit...
That's a geek country tune ain't it!
Not necessarily. I bought this in 07 for $30. I couldn't ask for anything better. It's been through 5 builds. Just time to retire the old girl.
This is the PSU that Mad Shot is hooking me up with. It should handle a 1055T OCed to 3.8Ghz with only hard drive right?
Antec TRUE430 430W ATX Power Supply
That's a 20pin and I didn't see the 4 pin mobo header?
*** EDIT- I got an old Mad Dog 350w in my s939 system- can send that if it helps... I know it has the 4pin but not sure if it's 20 or 24 pin??? ***
Careful brandon. It's only got a 4 pin cpu connection. You can do without the +4 but an 8 pin on those Thuban's are necessity if attempting to OC also. You may have to keep it stock.
My MSI K9A2 Plat only has a 4 pin CPU connector, not 8
Here he has it installed
Then I would watch attempting to run heavy overclocks on it. Nothing past 3.3Ghz.
@brandon- If you don't come up with anything by tonight PM me and we can work something out... I have an idea that may get you a Corsair 850w Silver rated modular PSU
I have clocked many CPU's on boards with only 4 pins? I havn't had an issue with the board just the PSU that exploded.
I just PMed Mad Shot to have him hold off shipping the PSU until I can figure out what would be suitable for the 6 core.
Exactly my point. The board may be able to take it but attempting to run that type of current through 4 wires ....
I may beg the wife to let me buy BOW's PSU then order a 8pin to 4pin adaptor (Heavy Gauge). I had one of these before in a build.
