.... Since Athlons are clearly faster overall anyway, he should have included his PIV 1.7HollowGhz in the testing, especially since it was air-cooled, but I guess he wanted a comparison to 'off the shelf' type systems.
.... Also wish he had OC'd the GeForce 3D card as well since this was supposed to be kind of an all out performance PC and it wouldn't have cost any extra $$$$$$. Also, at 1.6Ghz, the Athlon was kind of bottlenecked by a stock GeForce Ultra.
Can you tell me how to get a p4 overclocked and keep the agp and pci bus in spec????? HMMMMMM????? Tom right of the get go stated that he wanted to keep everything but the processor in spec, this made limiting the p4 to its rated mhz because intel don't want you messin with there cpu's. I would however have liked to seen the athlon at 1.5 gig as well to compare mhz to mhz performance.
ok i have a question on the dream machine here...
who goes and buys a viper with out seats a radio or roof?
why is this system not complete with sound card
ill be the stock ones are as u add parts to it ur speed will decrease that is not even close to my idea ofa dream machine...if ur going to test it do it up right... put all the damn goodies in with it ...
i dont know about you all but i happen to like listening to u all explode as well as watch it that doesnt do my system any good when i have a dvd tv radio vcr sat dish and everything elsei can cram in to it just says look i have the fastest machine granted cant drive it on the street due to a lack of SEATS! but hey she be fast lol
Im a cryogenic specialist and have to ask you this. What are you planning on keeping the liquid N2 in while your PC uses it? I know you dont want a Dewer standing in your office. Oh and you know how dangerous that could be with the expansion ratio on LIN? The temp is good right around _290 or so but the expansion ratio is around 450/1, meaning you need a high pressure system that is leak tight. Not likly for a PC in my opinion. But hey let me know how far you get. If you really want it cold you should use liquid Argon, bit more expensive but it boils at -403 hehe.
