Temps

my 955 BE is running a bit too hot for my liking (43 C idle) with the boxed heatsink/fan and it's really starting to worry me. i've done no overclocking and my motherboard temperature is only 26 C. is this normal?

Windows XP SP3 (32-bit)

I built my first computer from scratch about 5 days ago, but one problem is that XP recognizes my 955 BE as 2.08 Ghz, not 3.2. (and 3.25 useable RAM). Is this a limitation of 32-bit XP or have i got a defective processor? i know i have to have a 64 bit OS to use >4GB of RAM. same with processors? CP...

Re: New Gaming PC

you could always get a dual/tri-core phenom ii, buy a motherboard with a core unlocker and use that. you'll get about the same performance for about half the price. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813186168&Tpk=Foxconn%20A7DA-S%20AMD%20790GX http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...

too many fans for motherboard

i recently got a NZXT Lexa S crafted, and paired it with an ASUS M4A79XTD EVO mobo, and it doesn't have enough fan connectors for the case. i can only use 3 out of the 4 case fans (there's a top intake, rear exhaust, front intake, and a side exhaust i think) so which configuration would give me the ...

Intel or AMD?

So right now, i'm stuck trying to decide whether to go with a Core i5 650, or a Phenom II X4 955 BE. I know i will keep this build for at least 3 years, so the main factor is price to performance and upgradability in the near future (3 years or so). It's a semi-gaming rig but mostly streaming video ...
