  1. Of course the g41 chipset supports the Q6600 but some OEM boards doesn't work with high TDP CPUs. I've put a Q6600 on a Q45 chipset (hp dc7900 sff) which doesn't officially support any Q6000 series CPUs but it works just fine. But I've heard that some people have had problems with similar OEM PCs crashing under load or not booting at all.
  2. It doesn't seem to support the Q6600 (105W ). Motherboard supports the following processor upgrades: Core 2 Quad Q8xx0/Q9xx0 (Yorkfield core) (95W) Core 2 Duo E8xx0 (Wolfdale core) (65W) Core 2 Duo E7xx0 (Wolfdale core) (65W) Pentium Dual Core E5xx0 (Wolfdale core) (65W) Celeron Dual Core E1xx0 (Conroe core) (65W) Celeron 4xx series (Conroe core) (35W) https://support.hp.com/us-en/document/c01903990 Edit: I'm slow
  3. Smartphone around 5.5"

    There was only Note 7 between Note 5 and 8. And if you don't remember, Note 7 was this one: What's your budget for the phone? And you probably want 5.5" 16:9 screen? those new 18.5:9 etc. screens have a lot smaller screen area than "same size" 16:9 screens.
  4. HP Z400 build help needed

    Have you tried it with all original parts and with only single ram stick at the time and are you sure all the other parts work? Really weird that it doesn't even beep, I have two HP 400's and both always beep the error codes if GPU, ram or something else doesn't work or isn't connected. And by the "Delta 450 oem psu" you mean the original 475W Delta PSU? If its some other Delta PSU it could have killed the mobo or something. Edit: Does the mobos have 6 or 4 dimm slots? The older 1 Gen. Z400 (4 dimm slots) doesn't support 6 core CPUs
  5. ECC Ram on x58 pro-e

    Yes. R means it's registered. U = normal non-ECC non-registered E = ECC non-registered R = ECC Registered
  6. ECC Ram on x58 pro-e

    Yes, that should work.
  7. ECC Ram on x58 pro-e

    You can't use ECC Registered memory on any X58 board. Normal non-registered ECC memory should work but those usually cost the same as a non-ecc ram.
  8. Tape overclock

    I'm pretty sure you can't BSEL mod the Pentium D and it's already running at 3.4GHz...
  9. Windows XP Build

    Don't get an AMD Athlon XP. It doesn't support SSE2 so newer WinXP games and programs wouldn't work on it. I'd recommend getting some E7000 or E8000 series Core2 Duo. LGA775 boards should work just fine with any modern power supply unlike Athlon XPs. Pentium 4 and Athlon XP would be good options only if you wanted to build an actual retro PC with AGP and IDE. And system like that would be only good for 2000-2005 games and stuff. I actually have 3 different XP retro gaming PCs (Tbh I have a lot more than 3 XP PCs) What kind of monitor you are going to use? Most of the older XP games doesn't support widescreen resolutions. If you have a 16:9 monitor, you'd probably want to use GPU scaling with fixed aspect-ratio if your monitor doesn't have a 4:3 or 5:4 mode.
  10. Windows XP Build

    Most people back in the days of Athlon 64 used 32bit WinXP. And waste of money? Athlon 64s are really cheap
  11. Windows XP Build

    For a high end Windows XP system I'd recommend something like Core2 Duo E8400, E8500 or E8600. Those CPUs have pretty good single-core performance and should be cheap and easy to find and LGA775 mobos are easy to find too. And most Windows XP games doesn't use more than 2 cores so in old games Core2 Quad Q9650 etc. wouldn't be better than those. And of course you'd want 4gb of ram for 32bit XP. And for GPU? Idk... Some say that the GTX 285 is the best DX9 graphics card. But anything that have WinXP drivers should be fine. System like that should be more than enough to run all Windows XP games etc. without any problems. I don't think you'd need anything more powerful than that since games newer than 2008/2009 should work just fine with a modern OS.
  12. Will playing a console on a gaming monitor make a difference?

    Gameplay difference? Not really. On a gaming monitor (and TN panels in general) you'll have much worse colors, contrast and viewing angles than on the CRT monitors but response time shouldn't be too much worse since it's a gaming monitor.
  13. 1080p ultrawide!

    You can compare different screen sizes and aspect ratios here: http://www.displaywars.com/27-inch-16x9-vs-34-inch-21x9 as you can see 34" ultrawide is as tall as 27" 16:9. I have one 27" 1080p 16:9 monitor and I can say it's way too big for a 1080p as a PC monitor. I'd recommend max 24" 16:9 for 1080p PC monitor which would be as tall as 30" ultrawide IMO 27" (16:9) is a great size for 1440p so I'd go with it.
  14. T7700 in ThinkPad X60?

    No. It doesn't support 800MHz FSB CPUs. Intel Core2 Duo T7600 (667MHz FSB) is the best one it supports
