    doctor bowtie!

    Hope you're still around and able to read my PM before the board goes under. It's sinking.
  3. $145 shipped on the q6600. does anyone want this .??
  4. HOLY CRAP! I thought the 6600 was still $266 on newegg... it's 220. wow. Lowered cpu price CPU pictures http://tweakmy.net/demos/cpu/ CPU stepping SL9UM MALAY L6407170
  5. lolz vista is bunk. didn't people say that about windows ME? even regular consumers held onto 98 se for dear life..
  6. Are you kidding? They do it because they have to. Cheap shared hosting sucks. I'd rather use my 30/9.5 mbps home FIOS connection than that.. it's usually faster, more reliable, and cheaper. any forum with semi-decent traffic on shared hosting is going to be terrible.. and after being around for several years, and being known as THE PLACE to get a machine that has all the prntscrn 4 GHZ LOLZ images _AND_ better stability standards than any OCing site on the net, you can bet there's enough traffic here to xxxx up your $7/mo hosting. This wasn't where you went to post "3 GHz X2" without some xxxxing proof that it's so stable you'd record an elton john concert with heavy realtime processing going on with that machine. I don't need this site anymore. I don't do anything that makes having a 3.92 GHz machine more important than a 2.4.. I never overload the 2.4, 3.92 is too loud, I have no use to fry my CPU for it nor cause me grief with everything using "niche market" components entails. Like having to switch to a 1.8v stick of memory every now and then so I can boot into the BIOS and set it to 2.2v for the g.skill or OCZ.... I could work on a 2.1 dual easily for the next few years and never give a xxxx. And even if I did need that machine, what I learned about _how_ to choose hardware and _how_ to mess with settings from reading all the posts here(and making a bunch of stupid ones myself) is going to stick with me until computers aren't silicon and metal anymore. but it'd be a shame to see a resource for new overclockers gone.
  7. I don't think it is showing its age honestly. It were if it were dated December 05, it would be honest; cause that's how long ago it'd have to be for me to pay $1K for a 939 machine, of any specification. LOLZ!

    3 worst descision ever made...

    as time and science progresses, religion is used to explain less, and takes up less space in our lives. just a thought.

    adam asked god for a companion. something beautiful, intelligent, kind, mature and fulfilling. god said that'd cost him an arm and a leg. adam asked so ok, what can I get for just a rib instead?

    a) choosing john kerry to run against bush B) choosing between hilary and obama to run against mccain c) choosing al gore to run against bush sometimes I wonder if the republican party funds democrats to choose people who will cause them to win.
  11. I'll have the stepping on the B3 later tonight since the waterblock is no longer blocking it. gotta sell all this stuff before I get shitcanned. Am I asking too much for this stuff? the last thing I want to be is the guy on XS who is selling used and abused opterons for 5% more than newegg because he got a decent clock out of it.
