I'll Break The Ice!

Post by OsamaBinAthlon » Sun Oct 12, 2003 12:21 pm

Okay, I'll admit it, I'm a chronic overclocker.
I run a P4 2.6c @ 3.5g 24/7 - it'll load XP @ 3.64g and run benchmarks @ 3.615g
http://service.futuremark.com/compare?2k1=7097786
The setup is as follows.
P4 2.6
Zalman CNPS7000-Cu
Abit IC7-G (with replacement N'bridge HS&F)
Powercolor 9800Pro
1024MB Corsair XMS3500
2x WD 360GD (RAID_0)
LianLi PC12 (many mods, 11x fans all told)
XPlite
It idles @ 35c (we're in sunny Australia buddy)
What you guys got?
:)

My Personal Daily Use Rig is an AMD Athlon System!

My setup is as follows:
AMD Athlon 2500+ Barton @ 200FSBx11.5 multi = 2.3Ghz @ 1.675V
Thermaltake Silentboost

ATI 9800 Pro 256mb
1024MB Corsair XMS3200 C2
Seagate 120GB SATA 150 HDD
Antec 1080B Case

Nothing too special, but it gets all the reviews written :) :shock:

The 2500+ seem to be the AMD CPU to get at the moment. They're pretty good overclockers. They all appear to be able to manage 2.4g with a minimum of effort.

I'll admit, I'm slacking on the OC front. I never seem to have the time to sit down and OC my system to find out what it can do. But anyways, here is what I have:

Intel 2.6C w/OEM HSF
ABIT IS7
512mb Kingston HyperX PC3500
Western Digital 120mb IDE HDD
Albatron GeForce FX5200 Ultra 128mb
Enermax X-Point Case
Thermaltake 360W-DF PSU

Hopefully the vid card will be switched out soon! :)

does the Arctic Silver 3 compound from down under seem to "liquify" over time like it does in the states?

if you are unfamiliar with what I'm talking about... check the thermal compound in about 2-6 weeks... with my experience, it doesn't keep its consistency very well. Arctic Silver Ceramique does a much better job at keeping its bonding consistency.

Let me know your experience with AS3... I'm curious.

Me neither! The AS3 works fine for me, but I'm running out so I'm going to get some Ceramique when I get a new cooler.

My overclocked rig is alright:

1800+ @ 2GHz (200x10), 1.68Vcore
2x 256MB Kingmax DDR400 RAM, 2.5-3-3-11
Abit NF7-S v2.0
Antec TruePower 380W
Volcano 9 @ 3500rpm (soon to be replaced, considering the Silent Boost)
Sapphire Radeon 9100 128MB @ stock
Maxtor 60GB ATA133 hard disk, on the Serillel adapter
Aopen DVD, Sony 12x burner

That's pretty much it. I'm looking at a new cooler, and then saving for an update to a 9600XT and 2500+ and some decent RAM.... I wanna get this baby running on a 215mhz+ fsb!
