What CPU are you using?

Just out of curiousity, what CPU are you using in your main PC. The PC you use everyday, not the PC on order, the CPU that is your workhorse.

Mines a 1700+. I need to order a 2500+ simply because of how cheap it would be an give me a great perfomance increase. I'd run mine at 2800+ though.
The beauty of AMD. :smile:

Athlon 1700+, Epox 8RDA (NForce2), Maxtor Diamondmax Plus 9 80GB 8MB cache, 2x256mb Crucial PC2100 in Dual DDR, Radeon 9800NP, Audigy, Z560s, MX500

  1. XP1600+ with 1 PC2400+ 256MB and more PC2100+ on a lovely and stable KT266A Epox 8KHA+.

  2. I had innumerable problems with my via chipsets. KT133,KT133A and KT266A.
    You should also get a 2500+ unless your waiting for the Prescott.

  3. It would be pointless on a 8KHA+, either lack of support, or simply that it won't perform that much better. I am looking for a quantum leap of over 2x performance, and that's up to the next generation AMD or Intel. I ain't switching till next year for sure.

  4. I have an AXP 1800+ working at 2400+ (FSB increased to 166MHz and vcore to 1.7v).
  5. Tbred B 1700+ running at 133x12.5 (2000+). I havent overclocked further because I dont need the performance and currently my comp is running very quiet.

    <A HREF="http://service.futuremark.com/compare?2k1=6752830" target="_new">Yay, I Finally broke the 12k barrier!!</A>
  6. I have a Tbird-C 1Ghz with a XP2400+266 in the mail.

  7. I run a P4A 2.4GHz with RDRAM(PC800=3.2GB/s).

    Don't pretend - BE!
  8. I'm running the XP2500, A7N8X Deluxe & a gig of Hyper X 3200. Changed to a 12.5 multiplier & went to 2800 speeds before I loaded the OS. Sweet chip I'm telling you.

    BTW, I took out a XP2400, A7V8X MOBO & 2 x 256 Hyper X 2700 & stuck it on the shelf. Yes, going slower was faster. :wink:

    I've got to get rid of my old stuff before it's not worth anything though. Been setting there for a few months now.

    Dazzle them with Brilliance, or Baffle them with BS! :wink:
  9. I have a P4 2.4C @2.8 or 3.0 depends of the weather (on hoter days I can't overclock so much...)

    Roses are <font color=red>red</font color=red>, violets are <font color=blue>blue</font color=blue>, post something stupid and I won't reply to you!
  10. AMD 2700+ running at 2.34Ghz 360 FSB, ASUS A7N8X Deluxe, 512k of HyperX 3200, ATI 9600 PRO 128mb, Maxtor DiamondMax 120gig 8mb cache, and a ridiculously loud 6000 watt sound system. (Guess what I use my PC for mostly :-))

    Some people are here to do geeat things with their lives... others are here simply because it's illegal to kill them
  11. Mine a 3.06 P4 Hyper Threading Enabled, Asus P4C800-E Deluxe (875P), 2 Maxtor 40gig "slims" in RAID 0+2, 1 Maxtor 80gig 8MB cache,2x 512mb Kingston DDR 400 (system is running at 266 cas 2.0 memory settings PAT enabled), Audigy, Geforce FX 5900 (debateing on getting a new card or not at the moment have 1500 to toss at something this month).

  12. AAAhhhh! This is a bad country to have a computer!

    Mine is a P3 550Mhz on a P3V133 (I think) and some reasonably low-latency memory (I checked the other day, can't really remember) with a 15GB HD on a ... ATA-66 interface, I think. Diamond Viper II with 32MB memory as a video card... AGP2x, of course... Getting slow and awkward to work with! This was top of the line when we bought it, so it's old...

    I'm thinking about getting a completely new computer by late 2003 or maybe early 2004...

  13. I'm running a 700mhz Athlon with 192megs of ram, 20 gig hd, 32mb tnt2-m64, on a Gigabyte mb that I can't remeber the name of it. Was top of the line when we built it though.
  14. celeron 1.1 oc'd to 1.4. (I know it's a celeron, but I'm not paying $400 dollars for the P3 1.4. Besides, it's a tulatin core, so it's all good). 512MB of pc 133 running on a Epox 3vsa2 mb using the Via Apollo Pro chipset. That, and my 9600 Pro.

    As each day goes by, I hug my 9600Pro just a little tighter.

  25. I'm running the fastest 2.4B combo I can think of, that is, I'm using PC1066 RDRAM (which for some odd reason beats PC2100 Dual Channel).

  27. Ive got a run of the mill TbredA (unfortunately i lashed out too soon to get a tbredb)

    so its a XP1700+ running at 1750Mhz @ 1.7v
    167fsb on a epox KT333 with 1Gb of ram @ 167Mhz, hardest mem timings.

    Doesnt do too badly. later on ill get a high end 166fsb barton once they come down in price.

  28. My main PC is a XP1700+ @ 2.25Ghz (196x11.5 1.575Vcore), with 512Mb of Corsair at 2-2-2-4 on an EPox 8RDA+

    My secondary PC (the second player in LAN games) is a XP2000+(pally) @ 1.4Ghz (112x12.5, 1.7-1.8Vcore(wobbles around alarmingly)... Can't get any more speed out of it - I reckon the Voltage controllers are shot, and it's overvolting the NB (Crappy VIA Asus A7V333) so can't cope with higher speeds..

  29. Hey, I have the same mobo and almost the same CPU! Mine is 1700+, don't overclock because right now I have enough power for what I'm doing. Also memory is not up to par to run with aggressive timings higher than 138, so not worth.

    About 2500+ for it, I expect to buy it in a couple of months, hope prices have gone down again. I know I can't squezee all the power of this CPU, but for fun and experience porposes I want to try. I don't even know if it would post! But if it doesn't run ok, I will sale it on eBay and I hope I won't lose too much money. But I wanna try!

  30. P4 2.53GHz on a Gigabyte GA-8INXP. Despite a couple of glitches after first getting it together (namely the AGP 3.0 not being quite up to spec with the Granite Bay chipset), it works great.

  31. AXP 2700+ T-Bred B 333FSB on MSI K7N2 Delta-ILSR. Along with Corsair TWIN-X 1024-3200LL RAM. Practically constantly upgrading, soon to be AXP 3200+ Barton on Abit NF7-S with watercooling. Currently 9700 Pro, soon to be 9800XT.

  32. Asus is known to overvolt north briges, some of their BX boards ran a 3.4 or 3.45v NB as opposed to intel's 3.3v spec.

  33. P4 2.4C OC to 3.0 IS7 HyperX PC3500 2X512

  35. I'm running a Toshiba Satellite laptop with a 2.0GHz Mobile Pentium 4-M, and 512MB DDR, PC2100 RAM. Not the fastest thing on the market, but it performs very well for me.

  37. Athlon XP 1800+, 1024mb ram, Abit KR7A-Raid motherboard. 2 80 GB HD's.

    Fast enough for my current needs. Maybe upgrade if I feel the need to play doom 3 whenever it comes out.
  38. I'm running a $40. 1700+ DLT3C @ 2300Mhz, 1.67vcore. Using an SK7 to keep temps at 40C.
