  1. Thanks, I will as soon as I learn how. Glanced at the OC'ing guide will have to study on it some more in my spare time.
  2. Haven't had time to play with it much and haven't done much reading on OC'ing yet but what I have tried so far is set my ram to [email protected] multiplier at 14 and raised cpu voltage to 1.45v. I have been able to run a 2900mhz at 2950 I get crashes.
  3. What you say is true I won't argue with that. After I made this post I googled it (I should have done this first), didn't come up with a whole lot but I didn't find anything negative either so I installed it. If I had discovered that it "sucked" then yes I would have sent it back for a replacement, it would have went back unopened and unused and if the seller required a restocking fee which I would expect under the circumstances I would pay it.
  4. If I haven't opened it or installed it and it was a poor stepping I would exchange for another one. It's the same as if I bought something from Wal-mart and got it home and it wasn't what I expected I would exchange it or get a refund . Almost all of us have done this.
  5. What about Team Xtreem Cronus 3-3-3-8 PC4000 Micron I have read some good reviews about it? Has anybody had any experience with it? It is still relatively inexpensive in comparison.
  6. Just got a FX 55 CABNE 0524TPMW is this a good stepping or is it RMA? How is this ram(Team Xtreem Cronus 3-3-3-8 PC4000 Micron) I see it is in the recommended guide but I have never heard of it? It will be going into a Opteron 165.
  7. Newegg has a MSI RX1900 CrossFire 512MB 256-bit GDDR3 PCI Express x16 Video Card $440 with a $150 rebate= $290.http://tinyurl.com/y4l6c4
  8. Newegg has a MSI RX1900 CrossFire 512MB 256-bit GDDR3 PCI Express x16 Video Card $440 with a $150 rebate= $290.http://tinyurl.com/y4l6c4 Are either of these cards any good?
  9. I was reading another thread and they were recommending against DDR400 said he should get DDR500. Should I be looking for something more than DDR400?
  10. Thanks, found a good price at Newegg but they are out of stock, don't say how long before it is back.
  11. How would this ram ( G.SKILL Extreme Series 2GB DDR 500 )http://tinyurl.com/yaf9nm be with this system. 165 0pteron Lanparty Ultra-D OCZ GameXStream 700-Watt eVGA 7900GT or 7900gto.
  12. Do you know a good mobo that would fall in that category?
  13. Which is better [email protected] or [email protected]? I can run my ram at both settings.
  14. Decided to take forum members advice from another thread and give Intel a chance. Looking for the best bang for the buck, max $350 for the cpu and mobo? TIA. PS. This is for a rig I am building for a friend.
  15. That's what I wanted to know, Thanks to all for all the great advice now it's time to order.
  16. I'll wait till I get the cpu and try the stock cooler, I didn't realize their coolers were so good. Thanks. I'll be putting a rig together for a friend, he does very little gaming, and I was thinking about a Opteron 180 is this a good choice?
  17. You have convinced me, thanks for the help. Do you know anything about the ones from Monarch, they are $10 cheaper than Newegg and since I live in TN. I have to pay 10% sales tax from Newegg? Now one more thing which cooler to put on it. I have read some good articles on the Arctic Freezer4 Pro, what do you think? Is my sig not showing up? I just edited it tonight maybe I didn't do somethig right.
  18. Is it as fast, I noticed the the 150 was 2.4MHZ?
  19. How is this cpu with Ultra-D, used mostly for gaming? How would a Arctic Cooling Freezer 64 Pro work with it?
  20. I have 2X512 ram but would like to get more someday. I have been able to get 2.6 on my old MSI board but not very stable. Have a OCZ GameXStream OCZ600GXSSLI ATX12V 600W Power Supply that I will buy, I think it is one on the PSU guide list. My last board was a MSI I had my ram set at 2.5-4-4-8 @500MHZ with this board I can't get more than 400 MHZ without crashing on this board, don't know much about OC'ing yet but what is better 2.5-4-4-8 @500mhz or 2-2-2-2 @400mhz? Thanks for the advice.
  21. I'd love to have an Opty and I see allot about the 165's, would it be worth upgrading from my 3700+? Is my ram good enough for it? What kind of OC should I realistically expect, I know there all different? I will be replacing my PSU soon. TIA.
  22. The programs he uses are a CT and Xray viewer and Vox Blast. I am going to google them and see if I can find any info.
  23. What is ccbbe steeping and how can you tell what you are getting when you buy it?
  24. Found a great deal on a opteron $36 which I couldn't refuse so this is what I have so far, still nead ram. Thought since I saved so much on the cpu that I will go with 2GB (1gb X 2).
