  1. Progerien, ofcourse if your upgrade path is directed toward dual core CPU, the 65 nano fabricated AX2 would be the ideal upgrade path for U. But i think for its price, single core AM2 3000+/3200+ is a decent stopgap before getting that dual core one.
  2. Progerien, why don't you get a 3000+/3200+ Orleans, they're dirt cheap and OC very well. DDR2 800 divider won't be a prob with those CPU i believe.

    Oops, that's an Orleans core, not Windsor one, sorry. I guess what has happened in Venice core happens yet again in Orleans core, the lower grade chips actually OCs better than the higher grade ones. Most 3200+'s reach 2.9 GHz or more here in my country -with enough juice , some folks even reach 3-3.1 GHz with just 1.55-60v with their 3000+ APMW/MPMW, outstanding result for a 70 US$ chip. :drool:

    Mobo backplate?!?

    Yeah, this Infinity board has a slightly different CPU socket bracket design than the reference, using a plastic pin rather than a screw to plug the bracket onto the MoBo. Actually it's different than what DFI shows us in their website, which uses screw -AFAIK if the plugging uses screw, then the MoBo MUST have a backplate, usually a plastic one.

    You've got a dualcore bro, it would be tougher to push it any higher. Watercooling would be better for sure, just don't use preinstalled product, build it on you own with some selected parts -and they don't have to be EXPENSIVE parts, trust me on that.

    Just got a new OCZ gameXtreme 700W

    Nope, not crazy nor overflowing with cash, i just think that as long i can keep the temp within reasonable level, the rather high Vcore wouldn't hurt, eventhough i must say the chip longevity must have got reduced somehow.:cool: And i believe it's not the voltage, but HEAT as your chief OCing enemy, CMIIW.:confused:

    4pin CPU Fan header

    @radodrill, thanx for the enlightening info bro, appreciated.

    Yeah, decent OCing on single core Orleans, though the CPU batch is not a good one, 0620 SPDW. It's my 24/7 setting, cause it's gaming stable, though not quite prime stable -always fail after running for about 3 hrs. :cool: The RAM is memtest stable though, and adding Vcore to the CPU doesn't help at all, so i'll just sit back and enjoy, i'm not planning on putting my set up in OCDB anyway.
  9. The AM2 compatible bracket would look exactly like this : Notes: The AM2 compatible bracket would work with any TT HSF that use bracket in the first place, even their waterblock product.

    I've been pushing my 3200+ Orleans @3.04 GHz with 1.65v Vcore for the past 2 months under watercooling. I wonder what's the longterm implication, though it runs quite cool with water, full load at just 50 c using CoreTemp.

    Comparing it with the result of Evercool original working in Denver, i guess this knock off does a pretty decent job afterall. Just make sure you lap it good before installing it onto the board, the original finish is BAD -horrifying BAD fo sho !

    The HSF is made from pure copper, to fit in the green Infinity MoBo, you've got to mod it a bit, by drilling a new pin hole to it. The stock chipset HSF diagonal pin hole space is about 2 mm shorter than what's available on this HSF, so i drill a new hole about 2 mm downward, and skewed it a bit to the right, to make sure it won't hit the little long silverish coloured resistor (?) a bit under the chipset spot. Don't forget to use the stock HSF pin on the new replacement HSF pin hole, simply because the original replacement HSF pin is too tall and interfering with the HSF fan.

    Here are the pics of that Evercool chinese imitation HSF : With this chipset cooler, chipset temp dropped from 63 c pre installation to just 47 c after.

    4pin CPU Fan header

    I think it comes from Intel standard CPU fan, which requires the 4th pin to control its RPM accordingly. It's a legacy from P4 presHOTT days, but my AMD 3200+ Orleans stock fan only has 3 pins, yet the MoBo can control its RPM according to the CPU temp without the need for the 4th pin, so what gives ?
  15. 3.3 GHz is rather hard to achieve with 90 nano AMD chips, especially without extreme cooling & for daily usage. Hopefully, 65 nano parts will fix that.
