I love new PC bits, so I was curious.
However, I haven't updated either of my beasts in awhile, not properly.
Last things I put in, are a BenQ 1650 in PC no.2, and a nice new monitor for PC no.1.
Latest "upgrade" was recovering an old HDD (20 GB), that I put in an external box.
Not really important, but definitely 20 GB more in my system :bigsmile:
added 2x160GB Seagate PATA HDDs a while back...not much over the last few months though.
new GFX card ... AGP card Nvidia 6800GTX
I cant remember in what order so I;ll just say in the past few months; I swapped the two 256mb ram cards out of my laptop for two 512mb ones, added the 1650 to the desktop, replaced a dead CPU heatsink fan, replaced 80 pin IDE cable.
19" Iiyama ProLite screen, last week - looks a bit plasticky but the "picture's perfect" and at only â‚¬235 I'm pretty pleased with it so far.
Also working on a K8N Neo2 w/ Venice 3000+ setup to finally replace the core of what's in my sig. Will need some extra work to make it as quiet though .
AMD Athlon 64 X2 4400+ (Toledo) Dual Core. It rocks. :iagree:
I've had it clocked to 120% and stable with the stock heatsink and fan. The RAM was getting a bit warm though. :bigsmile:
Have you tested with dvd shrink? I read somewhere that it can use both core to do compression :eek:
on a stock fan that is pritty good!
The stock heatsink and fan.
WOW is that the fan and heatsink that came with the AMD cpu :eek: ME what a AMD rig NOW!
That is a sweet heatpip and fan!! :iagree:
Here is another shot, you can just about make out the AMD sticker on the hub of the fan.
Is it a noisy fan?
Upgrading can be adictive My toys are in my signature
Nope it's very quiet, at the moment it's spinning at 1188 RPM. CPU is 36c
Those are some nice new toys :iagree:...there's nothing like buying PC bits. Except maybe buying media :bigsmile:
Did you do this test?
Yep it uses both cores.The disc was a DL pressed DVD around 7.9 gig
An entire shrinking in 10 minutes? /ME want one of these puppy :sad:
