  1. not all xeon mobos require ecc ram. That's up to the chipset used on the mobo.
  2. EMT64 and AMD64 are the same thing. That's marketing for you.
  3. No, xp pro will work on dual HT xeons as well. Check out the review of the smithfield EE chip over at hardocp...they're essentially running 2 HT chips in xp pro. It correctly shows 4 logical processors.
  4. They tend to perform pretty well in benchmarks, but it's really due to the extra 1mb of L2 cache and not the 64-bit extensions. For the most part, the cpu scene didn't really change much...amd's still own at gaming, intel's own at encoding. No extra instruction sets are going to change that. What I DID find fascinating, however, was the performance gain seen by both chips when they enter a 64-bit environment. The A64's tend to gain more performance from going 64-bit than the intel's do, probably because the A64's were designed from the ground up to be 64-bit, while intel had to add the support later.
  5. PT880, PT890, K8T800 Pro, and K8T890 all have them. The one on K8T800 pro was kinda flaky, but the one on K8T890 works fine.
  6. Silicon is the second most abundant element on earth, right next to oxygen. We're not going to run out. go to the beach and look at the sand...1/3 of all the atoms there are silicon
  7. I have the AX8 and I love it. You guys can slam via all you want, but I'm running 250htt 1:1 with my 3200+ winnie on the ax8, stock voltage on the NB. I'd definately recommend it to anyone.
  8. you don't need a server os to run dual cpu's. 2000 pro, xp pro, and linux/unix of any form will all take dual cpu's.

    pure-ftp works great...that's what I use on my gentoo-based server. Ditto on the apache as well.
  10. ...why? I have one of those in my ftp server. Just because it's *gasp* a few years old *gasp* doesn't mean it sucks.
  11. I run a 32 mb boot partition. It doesn't need to be big at all...all it does it hold the kernel boot image. You can see for yourself how much you're actually using...just type "df -h" from the console. I've never used more than 15 megs of mine before.
  12. You can't detect thermal throttling without a special utility...the clock speed doesn't actually decrease. It just throws idle calls into the cpu to sort of "nullify" some of the cycles. It's not like cool 'n quiet or anything where the lower cpu speed shows up in cpu-z or wcpuid. You were probably getting it and just not realizing it.
  13. Yeah, there's something else going on here. Thermal throttling is the most likely cause.
  14. eh...I honestly don't know, as I've never used digital out. But they allow you to tweak pretty much EVERYTHING about how the chip works...the kx's really shine in that regard. If it's possible for the chip to do it, the drivers will let you.
  15. I honestly don't think it's your northbridge, marty. You say it fails after just a few seconds...there's no way the nb could overheat that quickly, short of having no heatsink at all on it. You've got something that's not quite right in there...maybe a bum stick of ram, maybe a failing mobo...who knows. But it's not a heat issue if it occurs that quickly. I actually had a scenario like that once...My 2400+ tbred b on an A7N8X deluxe couldn't finish a sandra arithmetic test or pass prime, even at stock speeds. But it was stable through benches and games all day at 2.4ghz...I never did figure out what was wrong with it.
