    differences between the fx 55's

    As that I have both the CH and the SD cores. I can tell you what it boils down to. It really depends on the stepping as to how well it will OC. most SD cores have issues with Cold bug and cant handle much more the just water or air cooling. it takes a special core for it to do so. Most on...

    need help found a FX-55 for $299. Real quick question!

    Nice thing about ClawHammer FX55 is the SOI. Also they used Strained Silcon. Also they have no cold bug issues. I have a FX55 Clawhammer and it easily Oc's to 3.5ghz with minimal ultra cold temp from phase or dice. All on a Neo2 platinum. Great chip. in fact im selling my even better ocing and...

    Affordable ($300 or lower) phase-change found!

    So is your only intent to post just to argue and be an ass. I completly stated my opinion and what I see. If you cant understand where i am comming from then you have little knowledge or experince on the subject. For some Joe Smo that decides to get one thinking he is getting outright extreme...

    Affordable ($300 or lower) phase-change found!

    My qualifications to answer are......... I have a Custom built single stage unit that runs -57 unloaded and -48 fully loaded with FX55 CH core or FX57 SD, I also have a dual pump cascade that runs -117 unloaded and -107 fully loaded with 275 to 300 watts. Without naming names someone I know...

    Affordable ($300 or lower) phase-change found!

    Its also very underpowered and not very load capable. be the equvilent of running H2o Cooling on a higer oced CPU. There is a reason that GOOD if not Great units start around 700 to 900 bucks. This thing needs a bigger compressor, larger condensor and a better evap. as well as good gas. It may...

    Post your oc with Vapo LS/MachII+ s939 and BH5 or Tccd

    Ummm WOW!!! :eek: so does this mean you think the strangle hold AMD has on the performance is over?? I hope not. Those are some very nice piece of hardware. How is the ATI with coldbug.. Any issues? And is that a 3" mousepot there next to GPU pots?

    Anti-Overclocker's thoughts

    As I would agree that This guy is about as full of shit as anyone here. I find it amazingly funny of all the people here that think the FX line of CPU's are nothing, but yet have to continually compare against them. Even though you may be able to OC that 144 or 146 or 165 to those STOCK levels...

    AMD Athlon FX vs X2

    A few things wrong with your info First off is that the Very first FX was the FX51 and then a FX53. Both did require ECC memory and wer based on the socket 940 as Opterons were at that time. Then came the Hammer cores. First 939 FX was a FX53 and it did NOT use ECC memory it ran @ 2.4ghz...

    DD Maze4 GPU Fittings SUCK! Is there an alternative?

    OK.. The pic you are looking at is Upsidedown of the real orentation of the board layout.(not being a smart ass. Just stating) so YES where you circled there would be interferance by the card above(if you turn pic over) if using a Dual slot cooling solution like i have mentioned..Look to the...

    DD Maze4 GPU Fittings SUCK! Is there an alternative?

    Maybe you need to read my post again. I have the same cooling set up as the orignal poster does on my DUAL 7800GTX's and I have ZERO.. No ..None.. Zip of interferance with any slots on my mobo at all. Why you ask. Cause I picked a board layout thats smarter and did not put things in the area of...

    DD Maze4 GPU Fittings SUCK! Is there an alternative?

    Hmmm.. Funny to see how a crummy lay out from a board manufacture becomes the problem of the water cooling company.. If you were Using vid cards that had to have DUAL card slots say like the 7800GTX 512 cards you wouldnt be able to touch those spots as well. It really helps when a mobo...

    The PC power and Cooling 510 deluxe has more output then the OCZ 600. in reality.. The PC Power and cooling is rated conservativly @ 510 w @ 50 degrees celsius. and 650w peak. The OCZ is rated actually much less at the same temp then the PC Power and cooling is.In fact it would be lucky to do...

    Motherboard opinions

    Well even though you dont want SLI.. the best Ocing boards out still yet are SLI capable boards.. Just get it and dont use the other slot. Just cause you get a SLI Capable board doesnt mean you have to run SLI. I say go for either the DFI Experts.. OR the DFI SLI DR. Also another REALLY great...

    New DFI SLI-DR "Venus" Motherboard

    THE KEY most important thing is the Caps.. ALL 100 % Solid State Capacitors.. That alone is figuring to give higher clock capabillity then expert. (or so has been discussed) The price I have heard here in the states will be 225.00 to 250.00 Not sure what Other Items will be there as far as...

    SATA lock for ports 1 and 2 on MSI K8N Neo2

    Once again.. If you overclock (basically AT ALL) the SATA ports 1 and 2 will not function and will probably cause boot issues, Blue screens, corruption of data, ect.. So DONT USE them if you plan to OC..

    SATA lock for ports 1 and 2 on MSI K8N Neo2

    You cant tune it that way.. Just wont do it.. It normally goes haywire anywhere from 205 to 220 fsb. The really do not like to opperate above stock setting when using #1 and #2.. Just switch to 3 and 4 and you can be free of this issue..

    DD Maze4 GPU Fittings SUCK! Is there an alternative?

    The problem is not the fittings or the heatsinks.. But the poor spacing on most mobos.. unless you have the new Asus or the DFI expert or the NEW MSI board.. then you will probably have this issue.. Mine does.. But I also dont use any other slots on the mobo..

    SATA lock for ports 1 and 2 on MSI K8N Neo2

    SATA ports 1 & 2 if used will work.. BUT if you overclock they will become UN-stable as they do NOT lock.. That is why using the ports above the Vid card area (ports 3&4) are a MUST..

    IHS: Should I remove it?

    If you can go down to the hardware store and find some lil sticky back pads (kinda like the ones that were on the old Athlon XP cpu's) it will help you to keep from crushing the core..

    IHS: Should I remove it?

    As far as it being just careless.. no. I can tell you that it takes very little to crush one of these cores. Ive seen the most experinced overclockers do it. No matter what the cooling situation was. air ..water ..dryice/Ln2..Phase..ect. It just can happen. Now as far as -5 degrees more in...

    IHS: Should I remove it?

    Actually I know several people that have and have not removed the IHS. Some that do it get gains and some dont.. Ive seen several of the top Ocers with IHS still on and get FX57 into the 4.0 ghz area with it on. So its a mixed deal when it comes to results. you may get something out of it. you...

    Benchmark/Overclocking Software List

    I would recomend to add The A64 Tweaker for Ocing tools. Also how about for game benchmarks the fear bench as its probably right now the most grueling and also include FRAPS for game benching. For ID tools about the most comonly used is CPUZ as well. All the stuff i mentioned are used by lots of...

    Ive used serveral of all the above, But when I oc to higer limits i need to have the most.The Most stabillity, volts, amps, and clean signal. I use the PCP&C PSU's. The best built there is. The 510's are great. (i also have the 1kw) plenty to use there. Ya cant go wrong

    Wall hit on my FX-57 ? (water cooled)

    You would be better of getting a Board that will do what you want. Like the DFI or the new MSI. They will have all the voltages you could want. Especially the DFI.

    4ghz AMD FX-57's?

    Its is not possible for any of the opterons to hit 4 ghz. (atleast the 144/146/148) Its not an issue with them being a bad cpu to not be able to OC very well as they do..., BUT it takes very special conditions to be met to even have a FX57 even do so. Its all about the correct combination. Its...
