And finally finishing the "Job" with a heat sink and a fan.
It seems to me like a dangerous sandwich - But will it work?? Should it work
provided that slotket isn't causing problems??
I know this is a hard questions - but one of you guys might have tried this
"china"-slotket model! http://www.compgeeks.com/largePic_All.asp?InvtId=FCPGA-...
If your RAM is PC133, I would recommend looking for a 1Ghz or 1.1Ghz
Tualatin Celeron and overclocking it to 133Mhz FSB - you will get much
better performance since RAM bandwidth is more of a bottleneck than CPU
cycles on a 440BX board. The 1Ghz Tualatin is pretty much guaranteed to
run flawlessly at 1.33Ghz (I have 3 at 1.5Ghz), and you'd have to be
unlucky to find a 1.1 that won't do 1.46Ghz reliably (although you may
have to increase Vcore slightly - Slot-T has jumpers for that). The
1.2Ghz and higher chips have a much lower probability of stability on
Why is the 1400 is not worth the extra costs? 6?!? Think of the extra
"clockwork" you get from the 1400MHz processor. In one year it adds up to a
lot. Unclocked and a round-the-clock working processor supplies you with
atleast an extra 100MHz times a year equals more than 3.000.000.000.000.000
clock cycles. :-)) More than enough to send Apollo11 to the moon again. :-o.
A 1400MHz processor can always be overclocked to a higher frequency than a
1300 not considdering electron tunnelling.
My concers of mixing PC100 and PC133 was that it was not solely of the PC133
type. In that case I would have chosen the PIII-S Tualatin 133 @ 1.40MHz (or
1.13 or 1.26). It has additionally a 512KB full-speed cache.
