    Intel Xeon L5639 Hexa(6) Core LGA1366 Price:US $79.80 Used Ebay Seller

    So is there any source for a decently cheap motherboard with multiplier control? (After reading this thread I got motivated and was able to score a Xeon x5660 engineering sample for $62 :) )

    NOOOOO!! AMD Cancels Retail Zosma Phenom II X4's

    this move could also be simply to prevent people buying retail chips finding out they don't unlock and returning them (where AMD probably eats a lot more of the cost) compared to OEM chips where the warranty is mainly through the dealer.

    Large Raid setup advice/recommendations pls

    Hi trying to build a backup device for my lab (did one earlier this year based on people's advice here - only 10 drives and it was a great success): What we are thinking right now is: Case: SUPERMICRO CSE-846TQ-R900B (can I get an ATX board in this case..newegg has a special with an asus...

    Unlocking both cores x2 550 with ECS A780GM-A Ultra

    You can not unlock a brisbane chip, this is limited to the phenom II chips that have some of their cores disabled (ex x2 550, x3 720, sempron 140, or for cache x4 620)

    Sargas (Sempron AM3)

    Probably pair it with a sb750 board and unlock the disabled core(?) for a kick but start to an HTPC for under $100

    Unlocking both cores x2 550 with ECS A780GM-A Ultra

    I just checked the manual: In the M.I.B. section of the bios, there is an option for Advanced Clock Calibration also called (you guessed it ACC), my hunch is that if you turned this to Auto it would unlock the cores. It's on page 40 of the manual which is page 46 of the acrobat file...

    AMD executing with more proficiency while Intel Atom cliffdiving and I7 flatlining

    Agree with many of the comments: Basically AMD and ATI have taken a new strategy vs. Intel and Nvidia respectively. Go for cheap (not just manufacturing but also development costs which need to be recouped) platforms, and get performance by scaling ie. multiple cpu cores, or multiple gpu...

    Random restarts on a stable oc?

    for what its worth, random restarts on "stable" systems almost always fall on the PSU in my experience (in other words if your not getting any errors but every so often and sporatically the system restarts)

    will amd be making a comeback?

    truth of the matter is amd and intel are both fed, everything is getting smaller/faster economy is in the crapper, all the big corporate bucks are gone and prices are dropping like crazy, i think both companies are going to have downsize substantially

    frys b&m hp refurb laptop 17inch, bluray,9600m gt for $799

    If your looking for laptops in this price range (refurbs) I would suggest checking the sony outlet store, they had laptops with the ati 3470, and blu-ray burners for around $800, and the screen is 16.4" so likely a bit less bulky then this one

    Turn that X3 720 into a X4 945 BE

    I'm also wondering how these scale with voltage. I got mine up to 3.3 ghz 4 instances of prime stable at 1.4 V's. But the computer reboots when I start running prime at 3.4 ghz (this could be a problem with PSU as well its only 430 Watts. I haven't tried higher voltage wise because I'm on the...

    For those that bit one the eBay Opty 8346HE's

    Looks like I'm building my second octo-core system. Newegg had a blowout on an Asus barebones server: ($130 after $70 coupon) The ebay store still has these opterons (although now they are 8347's) so I picked up a pair...

    Finally upgrading from Opty 165..go with 3X 720 or what? please advice

    I would see how the 4th core activation works out. So far it can't be done with ddr3 boards. If a high percentage of people can get an active 4th core at a decent clock, I would stick with the ddr2 boards and a 720 BE as ram is super cheap ($20 for 4 gb). Then use the xtra cash to buy a...

    Turn that X3 720 into a X4 945 BE

    If AMD was really smart, what they would do is make a true black box processor (completely untested, shipped as a fully unlocked quad with at least 2 cores working at 1 ghz, then it is up to the user to test stability of the cores and max speed - if they could sell these for $100 to $125 range...

    Turn that X3 720 into a X4 945 BE

    Couldn't resist: Purchased the biostar board from Tiger direct for $110-$11 cashback = $99 and 720 BE from mwave for somewhere around $140 (had a $20 coupon from a pricing mistake they made) Looked later and realized it might just be a better option to get the Phenom II 810 only about $40...

    Was your Rebate wrongly Rejected?

    I agree with PXC, a simple call will almost always fix a problem with a rebate, however there is a handful of rebate companies you should just avoid, one of these is antec, I forget the others, I think sapphire/Diamond are notoriously bad

    Dallas Fry's B&M: Q9550 + ECS Mobo for $229, no rebates

    I understand the 9550 is pretty sweet processor but isn't it better to get the new core i7 processor for about the same price through ebay/cashback or i guess with this you don't have to upgrade mobo/ram
