My new kick-ass rig:
P3 500e @ 1ghz 200fsb (the room it runs in is at 50c, pelter, and over 15 fans)
386mb PC150 sdram
Aopen AX3SP Pro(i815ep)
(4)9.1gb 7200rpm ATA100 w/ Abit Hotrod 100 = RAID 0+1
ATi Radeon 32mb DDR-sdram @ 200/200
Win98se w/ staroffice 5.2
Well what you think....
:cool: First person to get a topic banned. :cool: ABIT BP6 Lives FOREVER!!! :cool: VIA SUCKS !!! :cool:
What I think is that comparisons between AMD and Intel should be made based on the chip the company puts out. Because you can overclock a 500 MHz system to beat a 1GHz Tbird doesn't mean Intel is faster than AMD. Is your average user going to DOUBLE the clock speed of their processor and kick their bus to 200 with FIFTEEN fans in a 50 celsius room?!? What the? How can this possibly mean anything? Thats like saying a pentium 4 1.5 GHz is better than an AMD 1.2 GHz because when I overclock my pentium 4 to 5000 MHz in my freezer storage room with 100 fans it is faster than the amd 1.2 GHz, thus intel is better and AMD sucks.
Comparisons should be based on what each company puts out.
That said, very impressive, if what you say is true. Way to pump your system!! Curious how long it will last though...
Im not on my P3 right now right now im on my k6-2 w/ 430tx. Hell, i Show you when my new PS comes It died, 4 harddrives killed it i guess. Well my old 250w soon to be replaced by 500w i coming, so right know its a paper weight. But I only have quake3 scores. Well it beats a plain 133fsb p3 1ghz by 7fps in 1028x768 "my benchmarks vs. Toms benchmarks". It scored 4fps highier then my friends 1ghz. Not bad saying a Radeon 32mb ddr beat a Geforce2 gts 64mb. Well i show you in a week.
I can believe it. Getting the 500 to 1000 is not that hard on the chip or the chipset, just the RAM and the cards. But you can set your RAM 1/3 slower than the processor with this board, which gives you 166MHz RAM, fairly easy with Mushkin Revision 3. The chipset usually only requires slightly additional cooling-a lot of guys get by just with putting a dab of Artic Silver under the sink. The pin modification to raise the voltage of the CPU beyond what the board would normally allow is easily done. The clock generator can get a little warm, but a heatsink there is easily done. I wouldn't be suprized if he could have ran this system with only an FOP38 on it.
Nothing wrong with wringing out every last drop of performance!
I have some questions:
1. Do the lights in your house dim when you power on the system?
2. Does the picture on your television shrink when the system is powered on?
3. Can you hear yourself think over the sound of the fans?
4. Do your telephones function when the system is powered on?
5. How high is your electric bill?
Good call. I was wondering some of the same things myself, especially the one about the tv. It's like someone telling you a flashlight isn't good if it doesn't 'kick' when you turn it on.....works great, but do you really need it self propelled?
