I really need to know everything about T-Bird I want to get. I want 1.2Ghz and my mobo supports it. Do I need a better fan for it? Or can I use standard HSF? When will the price drop in summer or fall? (now 1.2Ghz cost $140 I wonder if it willgo to $80 after Christmas...)I know how to use switches on the mobo so I can put 12.0 multiplier..or is ti better to flash BIOS? If I will flash then I won't need to use switches..

I have a 1.2 ghz amd, get the 266 FSB version (hopefully you have a mobo that supports these) and set it to
9.0x multiplier with 133 mhz bus speed and ram.

The 1.2ghz amd runs VERY hot. get the best heatsink/fans you can. (multiple in the case is good)

I have A7V so I can have only 100Mhz bus. I will just set 12.0 multiplier and live with they like sell them at already with fans abd heatsinks? the ones that won't make it fry? Why can't I put 1.3Ghz on A7V?

Have a look at the asus website but I am sure you can flash teh bios to allow the 1.3ghz to work....PS I have a 1.2ghz (266fsb) in an A7M MB and the HSF is cool to the touch after nailing it but it is said that the 1.3's run much cooler.....


if at first you don't succeed , destroy all evidence that you ever tried...
