    ATX Yonah Motherboards

    Simple question really. If I want an ATX motherboard with a Core Duo, is my only choice that one AOpen one that is $250ish?

    Overclocking Issues

    I thought the wire mod was for changing the vcore? You can unlock lower multipliers with this too?

    Overclocking Issues

    I've managed to overclock my board (Asus A7v333) and processor (AXP 2200+ T'bred) to 1898 MHz (13x146) before stably and could go beyond possibly, but I want to extract more FSB first, only problem is my lowest multiplier is 13. Is that the lowest one can get on this board? I am running the...

    Overclocking Asus A7v333

    I've managed to overclock my board and processor (AXP 2200+ T'bred) to 1898 MHz (13x146) before stably and could go beyond possibly, but I want to extract more FSB first, only problem is my lowest multiplier is 13. Is that the lowest one can get on this board? I am running the latest BIOS (1017)...

    Upgrade from Athlon XP

    Thanks for all your input guys. I guess I am going to go with the DFI board along with the TwinMOS RAM. This'll certainly save me some money over the Corsair that I was going to go with. Oh well, more money for other things I guess!

    Upgrade from Athlon XP

    Excellent, thanks for all your input on the issue, I think I'm going to go with DFI for this one. Now, onto my second question about RAM, what would be my best choice? Should I stick with low latency/low clock speed or the other way around? Which would be best for overclocking?

    Upgrade from Athlon XP

    So I would not be losing anything by using the DFI board over the MSI one? And were you referring to the MSI board being quirky with the Venice core?

    Upgrade from Athlon XP

    Argh! I forgot to look at the pic, looks like you're right. Something else I'm concerned about with this board is the clearance around the processor. I'm going to use a Zalman 7000AlCu cooler, will that have enough room on that board?

    Upgrade from Athlon XP

    I looked at that board, but it doesn't look like it supports parallel ATA. I'm not updating my hard drive at the moment, so I will need PATA at least for a little while. Expandability to SATA is perfectly ok though, just that I need at least 1 PATA input.

    Upgrade from Athlon XP

    I'm going to finally upgrade my system from an Athlon XP 2200+ Thoroughbred to an A64. I've pretty much decided on the 3200 Venice as well as the MSI K8N NEO2 Platinum. I am confused however on what RAM to get. Would going for low latency/low clock speed be better than a higher latency with a...

    Klipsch Promedia 2.1 with RSX

    Has anyone here thought about swapping out the satellites on the Klipsch Promedia 2.1's with Klipsch RSX-4's or the like? Do you think it may be worth it to do so?

    Fragbox 2 PSU and Mobo

    I'm heading off to college in a few months and I'm planning on building a SFF system around the Fragbox chassis, mainly because of the greater expandability it offers. Are there any other PSU's other than the one Falcon recommends for it? Also, I'm currently looking at the MSI RS480M2-IL, but...

    new headphones

    Argh, in my multitasking while I was typing my last reply, I forgot to mention that the Audio Technica A500's are also in consideration, so it's down to those three cans as of now.

    new headphones

    Actually, I think I am going to steer away from the afforementioned earphones and stick with the headphones, so I guess that its down to the Grado/Alessandro set or the HD-497's. What advantage do the Sennheisers (if any) have over the Grado/Alessandro pair and vice versa?

    new headphones

    How comfortable are the ER-6i's to wear for extended periods?
