  1. As far as I know LGA1366 mount dimensions are 80mm from hole to hole. I know HP Z400 Workstations use standard LGA1366 spacing so maybe they used that for the cheaper LGA1156 system too Or it might be non-standard
  2. Galaxy S5 has an official Android 6 update which you should be able to install easily. Unless your phone is from some carrier that doesn't release updates for their phones
  3. From what I searched it should allow overclocking. It's just not the same way as on modern systems because the CPU is multiplier locked. Here is a overclocking guide for H55/P55, it's for a different board but it shouldn't be too hard to find the same settings on your board. The most important ones are the BCLK frequency and core voltage
  4. Does it come with a CPU? People often sell X58 boards with an i7-920 or similar as a socket cover so if it comes with one you can use it to make sure it has the latest BIOS version installed. If not you can probably find one for dirt cheap What cooler is it? Pretty much any decent cheap tower cooler should be enough for 4.0GHz 1.3v but for higher clocks (over 4.2GHz) you might need better cooler
  5. Have you already overclocked your CPU? There isn't much difference between H55 and P55 chipsets and I don't think the 2 extra RAM slots the P7P55D-E is worth the money. You already have one of the best CPUs for the platform so I'd recommend just overclocking it if you haven't already and keep saving for a new platform.
  6. Intel Celeron 333MHz - This was what my first PC had. It was already old and slow when I got it in 2006 but it is what I had. Intel Xeon E5420 - My first (and second) server had two of these, thanks to these CPUs I have a lot of great memories of my Minecraft server. They were also the first Xeons I've ever had or even used, two months later I decided to buy a Xeon W3520 system to replace my main PC which at the time was running a Core2 Duo E6300. Intel Xeon W3520 (i7-920) - My first powerful enough CPU, it was able to run everything I did without any problems. I bought
  7. The Xeons are from decommissioned servers and workstations so there is a lot of them. Usually the i7's are expensive because they are the best CPUs for the socket and many people don't know there is Xeon variants of the same CPU for cheaper. i7 K variants will always be more expensive because they are unlocked and there are less of them than the locked non-K variants or Xeons. Xeons for mainstream platforms usually aren't as cheap as similar ones for HEDT because the mainstream sockets are only used in low end single socket workstations and servers while the HEDT sockets are a
  8. My main PC is working again, I got a pretty good deal on a P6X58D-E, i7-950, X5675 and Thermalright Silver Arrow cooler. Sadly the X5675 is quite bad, it needs 1.4V to even run Cinebench R15 at 4.4GHz without crashing. I would swap the X5670 from my dead board but I don't have any thermal paste left. The cooler is a huge upgrade from my previous one Here is some picture of my system with the mobo swapped. Currently it has a GTX 760 because my GTX 960 is temporarily in my E5-2690 system. Even though the board is the same model and revision as my previous one the PCB color
  9. Sad news, my P6X58D-E is now dead because of a thunderstorm. I've tried it with 3 different PSUs (Seasonic M12II-620 Evo, Corsair CV550 and a chinese 550W bomb) with the Seasonic and Corsair it only blinks the power button LED on the board and capslock & scroll lock LEDs on the keyboard. But with the chinese bomb it does boot but shuts down after a while. I looked at the board and found out the Ethernet controller was blown (which makes sense because our main router died too). If I'm really lucky I might be able to get the board to work by desoldering the controller. Everything else o
  10. Is there any faster Core2 Quads available? Q8200 is one of the slowest ones But even the Q8200 should be fine for video playback. I have an old HP dc7900 SFF as my HTPC with a BSEL (tape) modded Core2 Quad Q6600 @ 3.0GHz, originally it had a Pentium Dual Core E5200 which wasn't good enough.
  11. Depends on the laptop. On some laptops it's really easy but nowadays it's quite common for laptops to use soldered memory, especially on low end models
  12. Intel 945G is Core2 Duo compatible but not Core2 Quad. But the ThinkCentre M52 doesn't seem to have BIOS suppprt for any Core2 CPUs. The best CPU for it would be some Pentium D
  13. T2700 is Core Duo which means it's 32-bit.
