  1. Not a fact for this chip, but does apply to some chips.
  2. Please respond only if you have facts. And i know it's been done with AMD chips. I've done several myself.
  3. Interesting concept, let me just ask are you trying to test the max load for a psu? If so, you'll have a problem with heat imho, because converting 1000w's into heat is a lot more than one expects. If i'm being a noob and understanding what your doing wrong sorry, but the details you gave were a bit unclear. The example foto is a good template, though i'd not think the resistors would survive long under that amount of strain.
  4. Hey, Just got a E4300, running it on an Koolance Exos-2 with Koolance 305-V10 cpu block. It's running at about 60C on load @ 3.15Ghz. Would like to know if it's possible to remove the IHS (Integrated Head Spreader). Should be able to obtain much better temps if it is naked i believe. Someone know if this has been done please give a link, with photos would be nice Thanks
  5. well it is custom... i could have put the cooler lower but i had the space.
  6. Simple Grade 11-12 science actually. A weight of 5kg falls into a box, in an ideal system, moving from left to right at a constant speed of 5meter per second when empty, what is the speed of the box with the weight in the box? Yep 5meters per second... So left and right arent effected by top and bottom interferance.
  7. Hey, Warning long post - but very much worth the read. (feels like kid getting new toys) Been a while since my last post Mostly because my pc was being modded So what have I done? First i'll answer a different question. Why have i done this. Well since i like Zalman's cooling solutions i bought a cpu cooler, gfx cooler and chipset cooler. On installation i noticed the chipset cooler is in the way of the gfx cooler. Not cool, as most of you know DFI puts there nforce chips at the back of the agp/pci-x slots. Not very good placement if your installing big cooling solutions. So after a while of thinking i thought about a solutions to the problem. I would make my own heatpipe and by doing so it will be lowered so that the gfx cooler can go over it, and my heat transfered to a different place and cooled there. Hehehe easier said than done. So i started looking for something that will deal as a chipset block. Guess what, those integrated heatsinks you take off your cpus and use as key chains can actually be usefull .I have 2 of them laying around, and they make an excellent model for encaptulating some heatpipes, plus they fit perfectly on chipsets (first planed on 3 x 6mm pipes, but settled for 1 x 15mm after much search and disapointment) So i fitted the IHS with the little arms from the zalman so i can put in on my board. All holes were drilled at 3.5mm and then tabbed to 4mm. Heatpipes bottom part has been silver soldered aswell as the top part. (Tried lead solder but i kept having leaks at testing on my test bed system). Putting my test bed to 90 degrees celcius and installing the cooler with the fan at full speed impressed me dropping the temperature to 29 degrees celcius. Fan turned off temps are around 80-90. Reason for this is the heat transfer gets to a point of balance, where it can't cool down the liquid. The idea of heatpipes are having a moving liquid by means of capillary. Capillary is brought forth by cooling one side and heating another side, the hot side then wants to become cool, and the cool side wants to cool the hot side. Some pressure builds up when the liquid is heated and my top part kept leaking, so after serveral tries i ended up putting a nut in the top of the pipe and using a bolt to seal it off with silver solder instead of lead solder. The main aspect wasn't really to cool it, but infact to just be able to put my gfx card in without having to bend my poor heatsinks. I'll post the pictures a little latter, as it's now 1:45am, and i don't know where my datacable for my cam is. It was a hell of a lot of fun making a heatpipe and having it work But there are a lot of danagerous aspects in creating one. Firstly the tourch used is very hot and I'd advice you to use it with causion. Always wear eye protection specially because your working with a pipe that could close up and build serious pressure due to heat. Secondly if your anything like me, there'd be lots of flameable things laying around. It would be wise to move them away from the area your working at (hey i didn't see the black powder laying there...) Things not to try Filling the pipe (oh i used oil as liquid, not compressed gas as it's much more difficult) and trying to solder it. In my case the pipe cooled off so fast that it couldn't reach high enough temperature to melt the solder. Which was pretty cool actually. Also don't try to enclose the heatpipe then heat it up too hot, what your doing is making a bomb if it can't cool down. Just keep that in mind liquid that heats up and goes over in gas form can easily blow up a 5bar pipe. (the one i used) Don't put copper on the grinder. Most grinders stones will crack if you then latter use it again. That also goes for alminium though. All in all I'd say I like the idea of having made my own heatpipe and would suggest those who are experianced to try it. So what was the total costs of this whole experiment?: 1.5Meter Copper Pipe 15mm $12 Filling of LPG gas bottle $10 2 x 1 meter Silver Solder Rods With Flux on $8 (didn't even use half of one of them) Old Duron heatsink and old chipset cooler. (Used for cooling heatpipe) 2 x IHS might not be in everyones collection, but i'm sure you could find something to replace it with. Brass nut + screw and seal MY Test bed i build from an old Asrock motherboard, i heated the motherboard (ROFL) and cleaned off most of the components. I used a hot air gun (very hot air the kind that burns wood yep i burned my table). I took out a copper core from one of the old 478 intel heatsinks (i have like 5 of them just laying around) then i cut it about 1cm in hight havinga nice core, i drilled a hole in the middle and screwed it to the board. Having a Silent tower II i was able to use the plate they give with to fasion off most of the types of sockets. Having different chipset coolers i also drilled the holes for that. So i can test basicly all coolers in my test bed. I put some resistor wire around the core inorder for me to heat it up. Also connected it to the power supply i build. One needs a very good power supply though as the amperage needed to heat up a small piece of wire is quiet a lot. Something fun to do is heat the core up and lick your finger and just touch the core quickly. Ttttsssss. ooooh ok it's hot HEHEHE, i just like doing that. Anyways, i'm planning on doing another onefor my gfx card next. As i'm very impressed at the moment.
  8. If you were wondering what the capablity is of the sempron cpu's look at my sig. Also currently my 3100+ is only 2% below an AMD Opteron 152 2.6Ghz 1ML2. So in my opinion it's the best cpu ever when working $ for performance. I mean it's not every cpu that overclocks 700+ Mhz @ almost stock voltages. Also only a few that can really run so fast that you need the latest ram on the market to run 1:1. I'm currently looking to invest in OCZ PC5000 or better.
  9. Gonna get the 90nm 3100+ 754 soon, i know they are garanteed (sorry for spelling) 3Ghz on air.
  10. Yeah, i wanna see the bandwidth, clock speeds are easy
  11. Below is my system details. Volts are atm. CPU 1.72V @ 37C Chip Set 1.66V @33C RAM 2.9V If i put on 285Mhz, it starts up but when i do memory test it fails. Oh and if it boots in windows, prime95 generates errors. Even if i use a memory devider. If i increase CPU + Chip Set volts errors are less. Though cpu is then at 1.9V and Chipset 1.9V temps about 60C idle
  12. If you check my sig you'll see i have a Asus N6600GT 128MB AGP DDR3 gfx card. Well so far i have overclocked it and i am pretty much impressed to all what i have seen. But now i want to know how fast it is really going. So i loaded up everest. And when i click to get my gfx details it shows nothing. It does recognize my gfx as Asus 6600GT but it doesn't show me any memory bandwidth speed, triangle stuff or anything. Anyone know why or how i can get it to show this. Thanks NoSnipeLimit
  13. Just wanted to note that the AMD Sempron 3100+ isn't 64bit, it's 32bit...
  14. Ok, firstly i've been gone for so long it's no funny. Feels like i'm a noob again. Last time i checked AMD used a 2x Multiplier for FSB. In otheword you'd have a 400FSB cpu and it would run 200Mhz x multiplier. I just bought a DFI LanParty nForce 3 250Gb UT mobo. Now it uses HTT which in the bios has a multiplier ranging from 1-5x. I've had that setting set to everything in my bios. Usually what happens is i boot, i try running a game the pc crashes. If i set it to auto it boots up fine. My real question really is: WTH is this HTT why did they implement this? What is the advantage/disadvantage? Why can't i see any performance gains or anything. And why would it crash when i try change it? Cheers NoSnipeLimit
  15. Hey, has anyone here got any 880/880pro mobo. I just want to know if it's worth it. Cause i've checked and there really isn't alot of them. But those that are around look pretty nice.
  16. Hi, I've been looking at the Sempron and Athlon (Thunderbird,XP, Barton) if someone has benchmarks for the sempron vs any of the athlons even against a palimino, could ya post the links here? Thanks
  17. Don't worry, it's working now...
  18. Why is it always done when i wanna look at points?
  19. The extra agp helps, aswell as more volts on your agp. The extra volts keeps the signal strong to the card. Resulting in higher OC rates.
  20. Hello, I've recently got the Nvidia GF4 MX440 64MB, with RAM HS and some other random HS mods i got my Core to 320Mhz and my RAM to 530Mhz. This is though without a volt mod. The card is though not one i've seen someone do a VM on, this card is made by Nvidia them self. If someone would like to see pics how the card looks plz say so, and if someone knows how to mod this card plz also say so
  21. Yes the 9700 is in the same price range but it's not available here.
  22. Has anyone bought one of these and tried to overclock it? I'm looking at the card ProLink 128MB GEForce-FX5900XT x8-DDR. I know this card is better than the Radeon 9600xt on standard settings. But what are the difference when these 2 are overclocked using cooling from say Thermal Take (Max 3) or that zalman one. If anyone knows of a link or has these benchmarks of those 2 cards i'd be very greatfull.
