  1. If your thinking about OC'ing, get the mobile 2500 or 2600+...and then grab yourself a nice cooler like the Zalmon 7000AlCu....cheaper and better!

    "I speak as neither an AMD or Intel fanboy, just giving the facts."
  2. Like 333 said, the mobile chips still have the multiplier unlocked, so they are easier to oc, and because they can run in a laptop, they run cooler or oc more. I like the Abit NF7-S board (I have an asus A7N8X and the NF7-S), but it cant take one of the big zalmans, so I'm using a vantec aeroflow.
  3. is it good?

    ..this is very useful and helpful place for information...
  4. Yes, the soltek should be better and faster than the a7n8x-x. have it at 80$can. Just subscribe to their mailing list and you should be ok. the special end by the 21 of april!

    -Always put the blame on you first, then on the hardware !!!
