  1. now how do I put the banner in my sig?
  2. Maybe I'm being picky - But if you can't keep the comp running for more than 10 minutes... <shrug> Congrats on booting (at least once) at 3, tho. That's something, at least.
  3. Still sweet for getting it to boot at 3Ghz good job :D!
  4. Pus this

    Congrats. But, we live in the real world, not in the benching world or the banner world. I would work to find a stable point, not a bragging point.
  6. I agree with Scotteq. Its good to get a high speed, but if it doesn't last, then it doesn't mean all that much.
  7. Have you tried ~2.8GHz? I think this does matter, as there are some around here to claim K10 can't hit that 3GHz. If its not 100% stable at 3.0GHz, perhaps 2.8 or 2.9 will be better.
  8. Nice.
  9. 2.8GHz is stable 2.9GHz sort of I think I can get this stable at 3GHz but I don't want to kill it.
  10. I'm thinking you must be REALLY needing that 200mhz. If it is stable at 2.8, why push your luck at 3.0?
  11. what kind of cooling you got going on?

    i had a 9600 BE, and it failed on me, i just did a BIOS update. maybe it will be better now.. so i will try it again this weekend.
  12. right now I have the Swiftech H20 220 compact
  13. nice, what kind of case ya got that on.. i wonder if it will fit my antec 900
