Sorry to hear about that Ed. I don't think it would seem right for the guy on top of the 3g's club and the race track to have an HP. I second what Cliff had to say and I am sure he could build you the same beast for alot less money. Might not be gold plated but would be the same under the hood.

Nice run and a nice tribute to a fallen partner newbie.

 

I've been playing with this E6400 on phase for a couple of days. I tested the board up to 518 FSB, the memory to DDR1000 but the CPU falls flat on it's face at 3.8 which is really . me off because it will do 3.6 on water. I'll have to check the mount when I get home tonight.

I third what They said... hell I build enough for all my buddies already, what's one more?

 

 

Be glad you don't have MY chip CP. It caps at 3.6 on a stupidly high vcore.

when your hands start to shake, just slap yourself with your left hand and clad your hands twice. this will relax your nerves and let you continue in overvolting that blue tooth toaster. @Ed i'll build you a system for nothing, it would just be fun putting a system for you specially since you buy such expensive .. :D

I beg you and i think i speak for everyone else,.. don't buy pre-build systems they are the voodooo!!

Don't do it Ed. Take someone up on there offers. The last time i used a prebuilt was in 2000, an HP pavillion. You will die of boredom waiting for it to do anything. Go on Ed, do the right thing, you know it makes sense. :D

Hey, Thanks guys. You are right. I would be bored to death, probably.

Really appreciate the offers. You all made me remember who we are and what fun we have.

 

Now for my current OC. It just put on the brakes beginning at 2,96 amd locked up at 3.0. Tried 1.6 Vcore but nothing, Errored out immediately in Orthos. I think that I will go to the Core 2 Quad and see if I can get it working with WC. I will be looking for someone to clear me out of the lead spot in 3G with the AM2 rig/ Who's going to do a Quad build with AMD. I want to see it. Imagine what would happen with a pair of FX-74. ASuS has a board for it. What is phase going todo with Quad or Dual-dual Cpus. Time to think 4G here guys, We need to establish a prize for an AMD 4G goal. Any thoughts?

We got love for you Ed. You get to play with the parts we all wish we could have and you beat the crap out of them in a very down to earth fashion.

 

With the prices of AM2 CPU's and my Mach sitting right here that just got it's final R507 tune and is pulling -23 Celsius load at 1.5 volts on a C2D I was seriously thinking of making a run at the top spot again. Can't see 4G's on a single stage unit, maybe a cascade.

 

I think I will hold out a long while before going quad. I can barely make use of a dual core and seeing programs only using 25% of my processing power would piss me off even more. It's not like I use my sig rig for anything more than playing games, viewing pron, or blue-screening Windows anyway.

Yeah, but even my system chokes on blu-ray pron. I mean, Casino Royale. :D

You probably need to review the rules for an OCDB entry. Prime95 can not be used for the entry.

 

You MUST complete the following benchmarks, in the following manner:

 

pic #1 - Run SP2004 (single-core cpu's) or Orthos (dual-core cpu's).

 

Use "Blend" option. (see THIS PICTURE for details).

 

The SP2004 (single-core cpu's) or Orthos (dual-core cpu's)tests MUST be run a minimum of 8 hours.

 

Here is mine. Hopefully i am not to late. And here is my overclocking database entry as well. Just thought i would do all of that stuff right now.

 

Here is my SuperPI run:

There is my OCDB entry

You still got that FX chip you used on the 3G top spot? I'm looking to purchase one and a dual-core opteron without the coldbug to put under phase so i can pounce on it hard until it breaks some stable records.

I might be going Quad soon... Not ;)

 

Well maybe... if I can find all my freakin' W2s and get my taxes filed finally (late I know), I might just decide to hell with everything else and get me a Kentsfield and some Mushkin PC2 and go to town... I'm just tired of waiting for AMD... j/k

 

I will go quad though, once AMD puts out their real Quads and the match is met between the two brands... whoever wins will have my first quad core buy within a few months of them being released.
