£70! :o. Thats how much i was gonna spend on the whole build!

775 held its value way to much, probably because its so good to mess around with. 1366 is the same ;(

:) phenoms hold their value too, dropped my plans to get a thuban though.

they do. because everything has slowed down so much, the prices are kept high. about a month after bulldozzer launched there were plenty of cheap cpu's around. shame i was a year late to the party or i would have got a few :( . ever since bulldozzer amd has not been the same meaning intel can go at their own pace which sucks. they really badly need another athlon 64 to kickstart the market again.

Im trying to figure out how to push my E5200 on my G41 g41mt-s2pt board.. at the moment im running at 3.31GHz with 12X and with FSB a bit modified from default

Any suggestion?

Does that board have voltage control? You just need to add a little more and keep pushing the FSB.

Yo, its me again. Just found a p5q pro however it only "intermittently" powers on. If its the soldering my friend has a solder gun that I might be able to borrow. What do you think? Its £25 so do you think I'd be able to fix it?

At £25 you can certainly try.

 

Sometimes intermittent power can just be the CMOS battery beginning to go.

I don't know. I've had better luck with nvidia boards. Look for an nForce 780i or at the bare minimum, a 680i.

They're difficult to get hold of in the UK and 680i doesn't like quads :(

 

My 680i was sent from the US by a generous forum member here :P

Well, then a 750i for bare minimum there. The nForce 750i chipset is the bare minimum now.

P45 would be easier to get hold of and considerably cheaper than any nvidia chipset in the uk :)

 

there's only 1 nforce 680i listing and it's for £80 :(

£40 postage + whatever import fees

 

nforce boards aren't worth it :P

 

fsb record on 780i is like 550, on p45 it's over 700

I think they're worth it. Besides, maybe if I can get a decent 790i board, I might sell my 680i board on the classifieds if anybody wants it.
