Hey guys, I just bought this new processor and dont know much about the LGA775 design. Can anyone tell me where I can find some good info on this processor. Any input would be great. Ive got to slow down with this buying rampage I am on!!!!!!
It has 775 pins, 1Mb of on-die cache, is based on a 90nm manufacturing process, and can be used for toasting marshmallows.
Generally speaking, you really ought to ask about stuff <i>before</i> buying it ... Not that it's a terrible purchase - it's a decent performer - just that knowing the options first might have changed your choice and/or saved some cash.
Your exactly right about asking before I buy. I bought it in a retail box thats still sealed fom the factory for $202.00 That may not be a good price, but from what I had seen on some retail sites it seemed to be fairly cheap. Of course if it isnt a good processor to begin with I dont suppose that paying anything would be good. I'll learn. Usually the hard way though!
Ahh, like he already bought it... And it is a good chip... And for $200 you cant buy another chip faster...
<font color=red> And the sign says "You got to have a membership card to get inside" Huh
So I got me a pen and paper And I made up my own little sign </font color=red>
Im not a gamer. In fact, I doubt that I will ever come close to its potential. The main reason I bought the thing was because I had recently purchased a P4 3.0E 800FSB 1MB Cashe. I paid a little to much for it. Im new to alot of this, and I got both of them off of e-bay. I paid $184.00 for the 3.0E and saw this 3.4 and decided to grab it for the low price. My thinking was simply reducing my overall cost by selling the 3.4 at a higher price than I paid for it. Im learning the ropes! You could say that I am getting a little carried away with my spending though. Given my level of knowledge!
I don't have a motherboard for it. In fact, im still working on building a system that has a P4 3.0E FSB800, 1MB L2 Cashe. I dont really know what I was thinking other than the price seemd really good.
ChipDeath: Is it always a good idea to replace the Heatsink that intel includes with their processors? Not just in the case of the socket 775 but also in the 478 processors. If so, which third party heatsinks would you use? Thanks!
Im learning. I am pretty good with certain aspects of modding. I have a lot to learn when it comes to all of the settings and how they can and do effect each other. As of now, I am not trying to jump straight into overclocking. My cut at this is to have a very good understanding of the facts before I fry something. As far as the equipment goes, I would like to have hardware that I can rev up when I feel confident enough to do so. Oh yea, the category I am really behind in is my understanding of when to keep my mouth shut! That is becoming more obvious in all 3 of my little post. Some of the reponses really make me feel at home! Im starting to think that you either dont thank someone for their help, or you tell them what an idiot they are. In fact, if everyone would just blast me at one time maybe I would get the hang of this quicker! All three of my post are about to go to crap!
