  1. thanks perhaps your board can't do such a high fsb with this chip, weescott got his to 5ghz using 12x420 did you take a read of that thread?
  2. nice work IG 5ghz has been seen on another forum but thats with vapo, is yours on water? http://forums.overclockers.co.uk/showthread.php?t=17811846
  3. wow the first thing i have seen cheaper over here in the uk than in the states as you can get that cpu for £170 (about $350)
  4. to get the same speed with the 3600 you will need a board that will do high fsb's and ram to match unless you use dividers. 3600 @ 3ghz = 334fsb assuming the multi is 9 (stock 9x200 = 1.8ghz) 4800 @ 3ghz = 250fsb assuming the multi is 12 (stock 12x200 = 2.4ghz) edit: just checked and the 3600 has a 9.5 multi so it will need to run at 316fsb to hit 3ghz.
  5. glad this topics here as my ram is getting quite toasty lately and i have been looking at ram coolers too, i was looking at water cooling like wdey says lol, heres what i found. http://www.frozencpu.com/products/5131/ex-...l=g30c225#blank looks ok but i already have heatspreaders and removing mine might prove to be too difficult, then i saw this one, http://www.koolance.com/shop/product_info....products_id=251 looks fantastic and it has water bags that instead of a solid block that you just slide over the ram so you dont need to remove the heatspreaders. only downfall with this is that it only covers 2 adjacent slots and as i have the ram in slots 1-3 i'd need to of these baby's
  6. just ran 3dmar06 again @ 675/817 with tweaked Vram timings 5598 http://service.futuremark.com/compare?3dm06=1353675
  7. nowhere near as fast as these scores lately but its still better than my previous 11,122 its also the top score for an amd cpu and a single X1950pro
  8. squeezed a bit more out of it and regained top spot for an amd and single x1950pro, even beat a few c2d's too 5448 668/810 http://service.futuremark.com/compare?3dm06=1226750
  9. 5369 number 1 score for an AMD cpu and single X1950pro, 64bit XP helped my score quite a bit http://service.futuremark.com/compare?3dm06=1180838
  10. after reading through some of the replies for that someone mentioned "topdesk" i just d/l a trial version and its quite cool http://www.otakusoftware.com/topdesk/index.html
  11. i wont, my card uses crossfire 2. an internal connection instead of the external dongle http://www.hexus.net/content/item.php?item=7016&page=4
  12. is it that hard to disable crossfire to use Vivo if its not supported? getting wasted only lasts a short while, these bits should last me a fair while longer. Hmm could do both if i remember valentines day
  13. i wanted to upgrade to C2D as it seems my cpu is a big bottleneck after looking at other people's performance with the same gcard. however, i just realised my gcard doesn't have VIVO and its a feature i use quite a lot so i'm thinking of getting another x1950pro which does have VIVO and going crossfire instead. this way i'll save some money and i can upgrade to C2D a bit later in the year. so now i'm after a good skt939 crossfire mobo. overclockers dont have any really so any uk store will do. dont really have to scrimp either now so any price hd porn
