  1. BTW, one guy fried egg with Athlon XP 1500+ (Palomino) already.

  2. LOL... yeah, I saw that. I think The chip still worked afterwards didn't it?

    ---
    $hit Happens. I just wish it would happen to someone else for a change.
  3. my Palomino is hot enough for that

    seriously, i either HAD to have a volcano 7 on it running at 5000rpm (and sounding like ajet taking off) or the stock fan with a 9" table fan blowing right in the case JUST to keep it at 49C idle

    yes i put the thermal paste on right, and no its not overclocked ROFL

  4. My Palomino 1.9+ runs around 40c (under normal runnings) on a Volcano7+ at low setting (3500RPM i think). Under load it's arond 42-44c.

    My old T-Bird used to run 47c and 52c under load.

    AMD Is An Anagram Of MAD, Intel Is An Anagram Of INLET, Cyrix...Ah Who Cares?
  5. yeah, that chip survived after frying egg

  6. 100W though... that aint good. Thats getting into Itanium territory.
    And its comming from a smaller area. Gotta wonder about chip integrity, even with a heat spreader. Powerbill will be nasty too if you think of running 24/7 full load.

    I guess though its good news for aftermarket CPU cooler sellers! More huge slabs of copper comming right up! :)

  7. Hey poopy, you apparently forgot the CAPS LOCK on! :smile:

    Dark_Archonis stopped by recently and reminded us all that prescott samples have been circulating since november. Early samples might have been ridiculously hot - and I think it is very possible that someone measured such a chip for power consumption and started this rumor...

    I guess it is much safer for us to stop speculating and wait and see.

  8. We all know where that rumor can from. poopy.
  9. I'll have to see if I can fry an egg on my old Athlon 500 Mhz. That way I don't have to use any oil in frying. Wow a diet way of frying eggs no oil or butter.
  10. an an INTEL FAN person... you have to pray these TOASTER PRESCOTTS are early chips

    funny thing about that is... if these are early chips... why hasnt the heat issue been talked about till now?

    and it makes alot of sense combined with the MB issues with PRESCOTT that have been floating

    accept it now... PRESCOTT WILL BE DELAYED
  11. So Prescott is delayed what two or three weeks. Big deal.
  12. you ass, you made me hungry, I haven't eaten breakfast.

    All the things I really like to do are either illegal, immoral, or fattening.
  13. You know, you don't need to use caps for us to pay attention to what you're saying. You just need to think about what you're saying, and we'll listen carefully.

    Loosen up, poopy. I have nothing to do with the initial prescotts having high heat output... neither have you. And the damned thing isn't even out yet. We're also avoiding speculation about the A64...

    Isn't this heat issue just another "out-of-the-blue rumor"? So why are <i>you</i> making such a huge issue about it? Can you please answer that one? Because it puzzles me.

  14. He, like me wants eggs and toast.

    All the things I really like to do are either illegal, immoral, or fattening.
  15. well i hope it puts butter on the toast...i don't like dry tost too much

    So easy to fry yet tastes so good...
    Silicon: The other, other, other white meat :evil:
  16. btw...is 100+ watts the power consumtion or the thermal output? They are very diffrent things that i think some people may have confused...

  17. It's <A HREF="http://www.tomshardware.com/technews/index.html#073730" target="_new">heat</A>, alright...

  18. Quote:
    In order to meet such requirements Intel also had to increase the current for such CPUs, and that is an explanation why the most of current mainboards will not be able to work with Intel Prescott processors. For instance, the original Prescott 3.60GHz was intended to work with 78A IcccMax, whereas the real version will only be able to function with current increased to 91A.

    91 amps! assuming they run a 1.4v vcore (i am not sure what it will be) the 3.6ghz cpu will draw 127.4 watts that is quite a lot!

    So easy to fry yet tastes so good...
    Silicon: The other, other, other white meat :evil:
  19. I think it was a little less than that... closer to 1.25V or so. But it might still draw a lot of power...

    <font color=red><b>M</b></font color=red>ephistopheles
  20. 121.25 watts then...

    So easy to fry yet tastes so good...

  21. Too bad Intel already demo'd a prescott at IDF and overclocked it to 4+ ghz ON AIR....
  22. not saying that the presott won't reach high speeds...its just not as enticeing to get when you know it will gobble power and require some very high power cooling...

    So easy to fry yet tastes so good...

  23. The day that it's <i>required</i> to buy a $200 power supply and the CPU's heat sink <i>requires</i> a 120mm fan as a minimum just to run an Intel CPU, <i>then</i> I'll be concerned.

    That day isn't today.

    So I'm not concerned.

  24. <<Too bad Intel already demo'd a prescott at IDF and overclocked it to 4+ ghz ON AIR....>>

    and they ran what benches on it to prove it was a fully working prescott? who knows what they disabled to keep it that cool... maybe they cut off the FPU or disbled the cache.... just to get a HIGH CLOCK...

    but if u wanna buy whateva intel says as gospel... good luck to u
  25. well for these new cpu's i would say 400watts psu would be about the minimum...and 450watts would be a good number...i am not concerned about the power consumtion much...more about the heat disipation...

    So easy to fry yet tastes so good...
    Silicon: The other, other, other white meat :evil:
  26. DO you want some P&J on your toast too.
  27. yes...i would also like some orange juice....

    That would be pretty amazing...put white bread in your cdrom drive...wait a minute it pops out w/ a nicly made p&j sandwhich all tosted and neat....

    So easy to fry yet tastes so good...
    Silicon: The other, other, other white meat :evil:
  28. I'm all set with my 430 watt PSU.
  29. yup...sure are...wonder if my no name 280 watter will cut it...


    So easy to fry yet tastes so good...
    Silicon: The other, other, other white meat :evil:
  30. Sure it will just OC it. Maybe it will think it's 400.
  31. Orange juice I'll go out back an pick a few oranges for you. Oh ya you'll have to wait till December they are still green an growing.
  32. What - do you live in FL?

  33. You got it FLA.
  34. Same here - Tampa Bay area.

  35. That makes to of us.
  36. Go Bucs! Wanta help build a computer for a few bucks?


    <b><font color=red>It depends on what the meaning of the word "is" is. - Bill Clinton<b><font color=red>
  37. Lets see if the Buc's can do it again. Are you building a new computer?
  38. Yea - my 1st - I want to do the build, need someone to "baby sit" - so I don't plug something in wrong and fry the whole damn thing. If you're interested - I could pay a reasonable amount - kind of like a baby sitting fee - *lol*

  39. I believe they ran sandra and pcmark on it, go read the IDF overview
  40. ok man....better be fresh tho...

    basically to overclock a powersupply you need to plug it into an outlet that runs faster than 60hz...gota find a 3ghz AC outlet and you powersupply will be overclocked and running @ 18 terrawatts :smile:

  42. ROFL
  43. The only thing Prescott is gonna TOAST is AMD's ass. Muhahahaha.
  44. don't say that if i can't get P&J sandwiches toasted on white bread i ain't buying it! I think i'll go for a via c4 if it ever comes out...

    3 386DX-25's...12 volts...glue and some ln2 and a wicked amount of overclocking and you get a willamantee minus 36 pins, 33.75 million transistors and a couple hundred mhz... :cool:
  45. no actiually via probably will never make a C4...they will be crticized by george bush for spreading terrorist ideas...

  46. Enermax to the rescue 660 Watt PSU.
  47. With Scotty heat an Enermax Psu you will have lots of P&J toasted on white bread.
  48. i am sold enermax and scotty here i come...so much more fun than buying a toaster...maybee when T.J. (tejas) is released i can replace my refrigerator...
