  • Bye-Bye PIII, and Buy the Athlon!!! Obviously, its common sense to buy the Athlon - far better bang for the buck and excellent overclockability. If the Athlon was slower, Intel's pricing may at least have made a little more sense, but the Athlon is undoubtedly faster. I'll give a little explanation for intel's pricing... I work for a large international

  • I assume you mean that your current mobo has a mult setting of up to 3x. Can you run the current CPU at 3x? That would give you 266Mhz, a 35% improvement. To my knowledge, (I'm speaking under correction now), you can't find a socket 7 CPU that will override the mobo's mult setting. And its an OEM system, to boot. OEM mobo's are notorious for their lack

  • Once again, it depends on what you want to accomplish. Remember the Coppermine SETI@home fiasco? It got beat by a slower chip because of its smaller L2(but even much faster) cache, because the processor had to work with larger chunks of data that wouldn't fit in the integrated L2, so it had a lot of cache misses, and therefore slow performance (I cringe

  • Heya It all depends on what you want to do with the machine...450 is plenty, unless you wanna go into hardcore CPU-killing stuff like video editing/CAD/etc. If you just want faster frame rates for your games, your best option would definitely be to grab a faster video card, eg. a TNT2 Ultra - these cards ROCK and you can get them for very cheap these

  • OK, so I busted my Athlon :(

    I busted my beloved Athlon !!!!!! Oh, no! In my attempt to clock this (dead) baby to 1GHz, I machined a new waterblock from aluminium, as the copper one was too heavy and I was tired of strappin it to the case, anyway...putz that I am, I drilled the screw holes too big, so that, to get a decent grip in the waterblock, I had to use bigger screws - guess

  • Heya It all depends on the board ya have...I had a epox s7 mobo with via MVP3C chipset...it had multiplier setting from 2.5 all the way to 5.5, in .5 inc's, and had FSB settings from 66 all the way to 112, with additional settings for 124 and 133 in the BIOS, but those were useless. I managed 475 with a k6-2 400, not TOO bad, i suppose (I busted the

  • Heya Congrats on your new planned purchase: "AMD Athlon - The CHOICE OF CHAMPIONS!" I gotta say that you have balls, wanting to overclock yer spankin new 900 Athlon. In my opionion you gotta axe yerself a couple of questions before going ahead: 1) Do you really need the xtra 100Mhz? 1.1) Because the L2 is running at 1/3rd, you are going to get very
