Socket 754 CPU

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Well I may be receiving a free socket 754 motherboard from one of our members here on overclock.net and I'll need a socket 754 cpu and cooler so I was wondering what you guys would recommend. I'll be watercooling in the near future so I don't want to spend a lot on a cooler.

For the cpu try and find a mobile. 3400 or higher. They overclock very well. For the cooler get a Big Typhoon. (I think it'll fit a 754)

Nobody likes to respond? I'm looking for the best Socket 754 CPU for my money, preferably under $100, shouldn't be too hard.

It's the same cpu as noneed4me2 suggested except it's OEM and $70 cheaper. It was the one I was previously considering so thanks for the extra input noneed4me2.

Ive had the newcastle version at 2.6 so this one should go a little higher being on a 90nm instead of a the good ole 110.

Good processor~ Now for your cooling, get the Arctic Freezer 64 PRO. It;'s by far the most inexpensive aftermarket air cooler out there (and notice I didn't say cheap). It works great, I'm OC'd to 3.0Ghz on it 30C idle and 50C load. You can't beat the price for it. Less than $20 if you look around a bit on the net.
