    Prime 95 + XP-M driving me insane

    I have a XP-M 2500+, and it will run 3200+ at 1.65v, perfectly stable. But then if I try for anything more, prime95 will fail the torture test. No matter what. Even if I try 2v it will still fail at 2400MHz. The thing that bothers me about it, is with 2v, I can get to windows at at least...

    Xp-m 2500+ @ 2500, should I try for more?

    Just installed my Mobile barton 2500+, it's the stepping that starts with an "I", I forget what all of it is. I was worried at first when it took 1.7v to get to 2.4GHz, but now I have it running at 2.5GHz with 1.8v ( moves around, It's actually somewhere between 1.78v and 1.86v at any given time...

    thermalright heatsinks and Abit NF7-S v.2.0

    I have an NF7-S revision 2.0 and I just got a thermalright SLK-947-U, then I looked at thermalrights site and they say that the v2.0 of my mobo is not compatible with the SLK-947U, but it is compatible with the SP-97, the SLK900A, and the SLK-800U. Is this really incompatible, with what I...

    Learn from others water cooling mistakes...

    I'm about to be putting together my first water-cooled PC, and I figure that before all the crap comes next weekend, I should do some reasearch. One of the best ways of avoiding problems is to learn from the mistakes of others. The setup will be: Dangerden AMD64 RBX Athlon 64 3400+...

    eheim 1048 and 1/2" tubing

    I'm planning on setting up a Eheim 1048 and all 1/2" stuff. Eheim lists the pump as having all 1/2" fittings, but dangerden lists it as having 1/2" OD fittings, which might imply that it is for a 1/2" ID hose, or may mean something else. Will this pump require an adaptor for 1/2" tubing?

    What are the "Thortons"?

    now, is it just me, or does that seem bassackwards? I mean, here you have a small cheap to produce core like the t-bred, and you replace it with a larger more expensive core like the barton, and cut half of it off and under clock the FSB. This would only make sense if they were doing like...
