  1. Ok, so my statement was incorrect. AMD's are currently owning the ORB, but there are a few examples where the Presler's are matching the AMD's scorewise. 3D '06 with 1900XT's is one of those situations. Thank you for the forum courtesy reminder, I will remember that. Anyway, back on topic. Currently running Prime for 6 hours at DDR2 1000 4-4-4-8 @ 2.2 volts.
  2. Well, that's it's rated speed, but it's not stock. You pretty much have to overclock the fsb in order to hit those ram speeds.
  3. I am currently Priming at DDR2 1000, with timings of 4-4-4-8. If it is completely stable, I will let you guys know. They are rated for DDR2 1000, at 5-4-4-9 with 2.2 volts. They will also run DDR2 667 at 3-2-2-8. They last I saw, they were going for around $250 for 2 x 512mb sticks. I paid $230 at Fry's.
  4. Nope, they are Micron D9 fat bodies.
  5. Conroe's are not out yet, so they won't be all over the ORB. The Preslers are doing very well though. Just trying to share my oc experience, that's all.
  6. I can not bench at DDR2 1100, just boot into Windows. DDR2 1000 is completely stable though. The real world tests will have to wait, as I am limited by my cpu/cooling. In order to posts these screenies, I had to drop the multi to 14, so the cpu speed was very low. There are all kinds of dividers on this P5WD2, so it's easy to play around with the ram, but my max cpu speed is 4.2ghz, so I can't even test the ram at DDR2 1000mhz, since that would be 4.25ghz and I can't hit that. I can do DDR2 1000 with the cpu at 3.5ghz, but the bandwidth scores suck because of the cpu speed. What? The Preslers are alrady kicking butt on the ORB, and when the Conroe's come out, kiss A64's bye bye.
  7. I disagree that it's the only thing that matters. IMO, it's pretty kick azz to see ram speeds that high booting into Windows, even if it's not stable. However, funny you should ask. I ran Prime 95 Blend test for 24 hours last night without a single error at DDR2 1000, with timings of 4-4-5-15 at 2.2 volts.
  8. Hehehe, I am about as giddy as an English school girl right now. Not Prime stable, but loaded into Windows none-the-less. Can't wait to pair this up with a Conroe.
  9. Hey Ace, just curious, have you started on my sig yet?
  10. OMFG, that dude has a serious anger issue. :shake:
  11. What he ^^ said. I noticed that you have 2 gigs of ram. 2 sticks or 4? What speed? That could be your problem if you are using PC3200 ram. We need more info please. And BTW, what kind of speakers are those?
  12. Call me traditional, but... I love the smell of fried bacon, scrambled eggs, and crispy hash browns....in the morning.
  13. The caps themselves won't necessarily improve oc'ing performance, but it will make the board more reliable for long term abuse. Now if they upgraded the power regulation circuitry, then it might be "worth" the extra money.
  14. Absolutely, take all the time you need Ace. I hope everything turns out well for you bro, take care.
  15. Ace, or anyone else for that matter: I would love a custom sig. I am a Star Wars fan, so maybe something Jedi related? Obi Wan is my favorite, and the only thing that I really ask for is a lightsaber somewhere in the sig. Any takers?
  16. No, SDRam will NOT work in the RD slot. You MUST have RD-Ram. You can use either PC800 or PC1066 in that Dell, it doesn't really matter. RD-Ram is no longer produced, so it's very difficult to find. Don't even think about buying new sticks, as the prices are outrageous (as you have noticed). Your best bet is to look for some on Ebay<---your cheapest solution by far.
  17. Generally speaking, review sites usually receive cards about 2 weeks before launch, but they have to sign NDA's. (non-disclosure agreements)
  18. According to that article, the 7900's will be more competitively priced than the 1900 series. I guess only time will tell. However, with the dismal failure to keep 512mb 7800GTX's in stock at msrp, I think that Nvidia will indeed make these cards available around the $500 price point. The only major issue keeping these cards at reasonable prices is the 512mb of 1.1ns ram. That stuff is uber expensive.
  19. Well, you can blaim Nvidia for that one, they are the ones who don't comment on unannounced products . However, I know that some of the Japanese guys will have these cards pretty soon, so expect some leaked benches in the next week or so.
  20. I don't know where you heard this, but the G71 isn't supposed to be out till around late March, early April.
  21. You don't want to keep that cpu for very long, do you? You vcore is crazy high for a Prescott on air. You temps are good, but I would seriously consider staying under 1.6volts. Heck, the max recommended vcore on air 1.525, so you are playing with fire, IMO.
