    Beerzerker got a reaction from ShrimpBrime in Remember when AMD was on top??   
    OCZ made good RAM too - Some of what they made did really well.
    It is true alot of it was lesser (Crap) sticks but like the rest they also had some sticks that were as good as anything else. Have a few sets of OCZ DDR here that does as well as anything I've got from other makes. If you know what to look for with DDR you can spot them with ease.
    The heatsinks shown (He was banging on stuff with) are also good, have at least one set with those heatsinks (PC4400 sticks) and they run cool, esp with active cooling on them once volted up.
    I even have a set that's rated for 3.2v's stock (Unbinned Winbond BH-5 sticks) that can handle up to and even over 4.0v's with active cooling on them, can run insanely tight timings too no prob.
     
    And I'm sorry, the A8N32 SLI Deluxe was the top board of the Asus lineup at the time and I've got one that can run whatever I set in it really well. It's like anything else, you set it up right, do the tweaks properly and it will just GO.
    The CPU cooler he used is another thing I've got and I even have the all copper version of it instead of the aluminum version he used. Both are good coolers but the all copper cooler of course is the better of the two.

     
    Now THIS was the money and performance - You coudn't do better than this combo for the money and yes, I have all that too including a pair of SLI-DR's and even an Expert variant of a DFI, not to mention a hard to find CFX-3200 board.
    In fact I own the WR for several bench results with a 165 outright including highest CPU speed achieved, validated with CPU-Z.
    Bones`s CPU Frequency score: 3514.75 mhz with a Opteron 165
    Bones`s SuperPi - 32M score: 21min 54sec 141ms with a Opteron 165
    Bones`s wPrime - 1024m score: 12min 10sec 765ms with a Opteron 165

    As luck would have it I no longer have the chip, as of just yesterday it has a new owner but still runs as well as it ever did.

    While I was a mod elsewhere (10+ years) I only ever banned one person and that person came at me directly - Hostile, disrespectful and even posted crap on another forum about it too in the same manner after the ban. 
     
    This one had already been going after other forum members at times and I had warned him before about it but they finally make the mistake of doing it with me directly, right out in the open.
    Banning is something a mod never really wants to do BUT if they try to work things out and then it finally becomes a requirement they will if they are doing their job at all.
     
    The mods here are cool - Be thankful for that.

    We do permaban weekly, that's mostly because it's a big forum and it attracts spams ... and because of that, if you type anything related to m@le genitalia enh@ncement, your post will be in limbo (in a moderation queue waiting for a mod to approve it), yeah, it's that bad!
     
    Captcha helps, but I've seen 'captcha-passing-farms', where a it's all scripted but there's going to be a human involved when a captcha is detected, then scripts take over after the captcha was 'defeated'.
     
    As for normal users, that doesn't happen often, and it's going to take a lot for a permaban (unless you were already permabanned and made a new account, when we find those, it's an auto-perma, no questions, no notifications ... we have a list for those guys, yes, there are a few).

    UPDATE:
    Aftter finding this under the hood (Ratrod powwwah!) it's at the shop and work has started - SLOWLY but it's being done.

    Luckily the engine doesn't seem bad off and it wasn't locked up from sitting all that time, turned (Very) easily by hand after making sure the cylinders had some oil in them.
    ATM I've replaced the starter solenoid on the firewall (Froze up from sitting) drained the old oil from it and will attempt a test start once I track down a good carb for it.
    Doesn't actually have to "Run" right now, just show a sign of life (Hit/sputter/pop/whatever) which I'm sure it will once I get it all setup to test. That will tell me what I'll need to do next based on how it does for that.
     
    I built the engine YEARS ago (Spring 88) - Yes, it's been around that long as is.
    Car was parked in 2000 and has been sitting until now.
    Since the engine was healthy when parked I'm not really worried about having to build it as is but if the need is there I'll do it (Again).
     
    Plenty left to do just to make it move under it's own power again but I'm in no hurry to get it done.

    Didn't list this in the earlier post:
    Engine: Originally a 429 with .030 over forged aluminum pistons and stroked to 466 CID with DOVE heads, Cobra Jet camshaft and a rare set of Cobra Jet exhaust manifolds.
     
    Trans: Heavy duty C6
    Not a standard C6 most would find - A common C6 has three foward clutches, this one has five of them.
    It came from an old cop car.

    9-inch rears with 3:00 gears.

    Yeah, that took some doing to get cleared out but basically none got in the engine.
    No pics ATM but once I get it to run I'll post a vid of how it runs and sounds.
     
    As said, that may be awhile but once I'm at that point I'll do it.

    That's why I said "as long as it's not wide open". I assumed the choke plate still moved on there enough to let you put some gas or carb cleaner down the throat. That's how we prime new engines or ones that have sat a long time. We like to crank them for a minute to get oil everywhere then toss in the fuel and go. Not enough pressure when cranking to pump up the lifters but just having oil all over certainly helps with the first start clatter.

    Don't even need a carb really, just shoot some gas down the throat. As long as it's not wide open throttle it should sputter and run for a moment, long enough to clatter some oil up to the lifters. Might want to pull the dist and run the oil pump with a drill first though.

    Beerzerker reacted to BlueChinchillaEatingDorito in Very old computer! Specs I don’t know about   
    Looks like some old Dell Dimension from the Windows XP/ Vista days. It's probably not worth hanging on unless you want to get into some older software. Pentium Ds were pretty lackluster when they came out since it as a hackjob based on their aging architecture used for the Pentium 4 Prescott. They ran hot and didn't perform all that well. It was so bad that the Core 2 series that Intel would release later on and found much success found its roots from the Pentium III. 
     
    And oh my god is that a BestTec powersupply? Yea I would immediately through that away. God knows when that thing will blow up.

    Low rollers like to look sharp too.  Build only good ones or build a couple reaalllly good ones, market the heck out of them, and then sell a whole bunch of low ball ones because perception has gotten fuzzed.  It’s the whole concept behind halo products.
