lol no way are semprons worse than celerons you don't see any 64 bit celerons do you? or any celerons getting really high OCs?

lol you eye can't see any more than 24 FPS any higher is wasted. i know this because i do video editing and that's why all HD video is shot with a 24 FPS frame rate. just thought i'd bring it up even though the a64s are better and will get playable frame rates in the future when the semprons won't

cool n quiet + OCing = crash. Trust me, i tried it, the system randomly rebooted and i searched online and found C&Q + OC = crash.

Conclusion: A sempron is gonna have to get to probably around 3GHz before it's gonna be able to touch your A64 @ 2.53. Don't worry about it being 130nm

I have that chip pulled from a compaq if ur interested pm me, i am new here so i dont want to overstep any boundaries by trying to sell my old equipment so if this is in violation of any rules let me know but if not 50 bucks shipped...

i have a socket 754 sempron 2600+ and i can't change the voltage in the bios because it's locked. if it supported cool'n'quiet i would turn it off BUT it would allow me to change the voltage in my bios. you are the first person i have heard say that they can change the voltage on their sempron when i was asking about this before and asked how to change my voltage i was told that it couldn't be done in the bios because it doesn't support cool'n'quiet so they locked the voltage.

i was not saying that you would use cool'n'quiet in the OS for voltage i was saying that it would unlock the voltage change in the bios.

It would be the motherboard that's limiting you with the CPU voltage, not the CPU. I've never been interested in C&Q, but I guess I could imagine a board that didn't allow vcore changes when C&Q was not available. I guess Semprons don't have C&Q? I don't even know, lmao. (don't care! )

A few s775 Celerons hit 5 Ghz on stock cooling.

Let's go tell all the people with their $5,000 rigs that they wasted all that money because they can't even tell a difference between 80fps and 25fps. For gaming its pretty much been proven that 60 or more FPS is where it's at.


There are a lot of 64 bit Celerons. From $51 (2.66ghz) to $65 (3.33ghz). Thats just on newegg, I'm sure theres even more models.

Really? I have an SLR camera, and i can see when the shutter opens at 1/1000th of a second. I can also tell the difference between 60 and 50FPS. I'm not sure about this whole "you can't even tell the difference above 60FPS" thing.
