    Bought a Celeron M 1.5ghz Notebook - Ram speed shows 100mhz 1:1

    There's no preloaded stuff as the machine came with no OS and I used the Pro license from what used to be her old desktop. There's some of the Acer power managment stuff in place just for behavioral changes when AC's unplugged and it drops to battery - but othewrise nothing much extra (daemon...

    Best deal/mobo for Opty 170?

    DFI is my recommendation. I've used my Ultra-D on my last three chips with nary an issue.

    Anti-Overclocker's thoughts

    So take his thoughts and post them on a forum such as SH/SC on Somethingawful or the like - where you have a wider base of interests both - including those both for and against OC'ing computer hardware. I'm sure int he end even the naysayers will side with the logical facts that we've discussed...

    Anti-Overclocker's thoughts

    The problem with knee-jerk replies like this (not meaning to pick on you) but the rampant synthetic benchmark results spewing out 'oh so why did my [insert benchmark here] go up when I overclocked' doesn't really help matters. The really rabid anti-anything folks will always have a (typically...

    Anti-Overclocker's thoughts

    I for one would like the OP's buddy to register an account here and help us intelligently and systematically educate him on his misconceptions and misinformation.

    super quiet fan/heatsink combo

    Don't vote for a fan you have not tried. I had an original series Arctic Cooler 64 which was a great little cooler - and nice and quite. The next revision was noiser and less effective (the pro revision) so your LGA version is by no means a direct comparison to the current revision A64 models.

    My AMD Overclock

    Your HTT is equivlant to what was the FSB on older architechtures. Your FSB / HTT is what directly affects your CPU clock speed. 10mhz on the CPU will add more performance to your machine than 1mhz on RAM. Therefore getting the best of both worlds - absolute BEST CPU overclock then going...

    My AMD Overclock

    I would dare say that whomever told you 1:1 was a bad idea, was misinformed or working with older/different architechtures and hardware. The A64 memory controller is within the CPU itself - therefore any changes to the HTT (FSB) directly affects the speed at which it communicates to the...

    P180 cooling optimization

    I was able to do 42C load temps with dual instances of Prime on my Opteron 165 running at stock values with just the Scythe Ninja passively cooling. Drops to about 34-36C when you add the 120mm. I'm also sure I need to re-apply the AS5 and reseat the cooler. I also have a 120mm intake...

    The best air cooler

    'Best' is much too subjective to give a firm answer to your question. There's a sticky in this very forum with reviews and advice on each current revision cooler. My personal recommendation is a Scythe Ninja if it'll fit your case. Otherwise XP-120 if it'll fit your board, or SI-120 if...

    Opteron 165 CCBWE 0550 UPMW - Ongoing Results.

    If you haven't already - give it more juice. The 'default' or 'auto' setting on the chip for vcore will vary between 1.300v and 1.350v depending on the motherboard. I would start by forcing 1.350 at 290x9 with your ram on a divider to keep it at or below 250mhz (I think the 5:6 divider gave...

    My AMD Overclock

    Need to know a whole lot more information about what you're running before anyone can tell you if that's 'good' (very subjective term by the way) or not. What OS? What Motherboard? What CPU? What socket type for CPU? What precise make/model/timing ram? How have you benchmarked your...

    Opteron 165 CCBWE 0550 UPMW - Ongoing Results.

    Yeah that's the same ram as what I'm using. I'm starting to doubt my statement that I've got it running at 260mhz 2.8v simply because I'm getting Prime errors on Large FTT's but not on Small FTT's (I'm not 100% sure on this yet - need 12hrs of priming on Small FTT's to prove my theory). If...
