Heh, ATi bashing again Jim? ;) Sorry to be out of the loop for a while. Seems like I have a lot of catching up to do. Since this sort of thread is what I was planning anyway, here are some WPCSet Data factoids, and some benchmarks on my K6'er. I realize I have been "pimping" this system for such a l...

I don't quite understand why this is not in software? Nevertheless, I highly recommend O&O Defragment v8.5 or above. http://www.oo-software.com/home/en/products/oodefrag/ happens to be their website. A lot of features, including defraging 2 separate disks at the same time and in different formats. C...

kgb, someone posted yesterday in some other thread a link to where they sell K6-2+/570 cpus for only $7.44 go here That's a cool link Don however, the Gigabyte does not do 95 FSB with normal AGP settings. Yes I am being hypocritical because I run it @ 110 as of now but, I much rather get a 450 K6-3...

Man, has this thread been forgotten by me or what? Updates have been few and far between. Because of me trying to get the best out of the system with the little time I have to tinker with it. System has become my defacto Win98se machine now. With the Win98 2.1a update of course, the system is even m...

HP Pavilion 4430 ideas needed.

Found me a nice mini HP Pavilion 4430 K6-2 Box.

I realize what you are saying is somewhat true Taz. Why does an Athlon XP really need dual rails? Certainly.,when the highest GFX card it can manage is a Radeon X1950 Pro and a 3200+ processor, and thats nothing for a well made 350Watt power supply. (I fixed the JONNYGURU link in my initial post, so...

Power Supply for AthlonXP

I've almost completed my Athlon at long last. The remaining item missing is a durable, 90mm-120mm fan utilizing power supply. Preferably, I want a dual +12 rail one. One that is upgradeable, and supports 2 adapters for future VGA cards (PCI express), and has a 20+4 pin option. I am kinda of torn, I ...

@Uranium I didn't check out the compatibilty for the upgradeware.com socket adapter, thank you for bringing it to my attention. I had implied in my previous post, the socket 370 was designed for cpu's requiring lesser voltage than previous cores, and thus have a better chance of being compatible wit...

@Jim Basically what the Neo 370 adapter does is this: --> http://digilander.iol.it/grandecigno/Tua_BX_41.htm What this person does is; modify the Tualatin pins on the cpu to work with an older non-tualatin supporting PC133 fsb supporting motherboard.

hmm, I didn't realize the law of conservation and bang for buck "theories" were being applied in this thread. I just thought, a mere >80% efficiency power supply would keep the relative cost of using a P4 down (even further down for the celery). I imagined it is even better than the pseudo space hea...

@Kachi Wachi.

I didn't realize after purchasing and registering the Everest 3.5 program, I would have to remove the program a mere 30 days later. I mean, if that were true. One would ask, just what sort of scam is Lavasys is running? :wink:
