Should I get a X2 5200+? - Page 2

post #11 of 24
Your OC RULES
I'd say wait for the 65 to hit since your current CPU/OC is super!

Plus, don't they run kind of hot?
Hmm...you're right. 109/125w is kinda high. I think you should wait for that X2 4800+ to be in stock again. Then buy that and save $100

however, I don't think it will be much of an upgrade considering your OC. I think you should wait for 65nm

Cwell I would definitely say wait. AMD might come out with a killer and you would really kick yourself if you spent $400 on a CPU now and then their new line of chips beat your $400 chip at half the price. If you bought a Pentium 965 EE and then C2D came out a month later and the $180 e6300 beat the 965 EE you just paid four times the price for, youd be pissed. I would say wait, save up another hundred bucks or somethin and then if the 65nm is amazing, get one of those, and if it isn't a huge advancement, buy a nicer chip accordingly.

3 GHz ain't a bad speed. expect to achieve that w/ any AMD chip right now. wether its a 4000 or a 5200. i'd wait for the 65nm chips to come out to see if they'll overclock any better.

i was just wondering what kind of cooling you have other than the arctic pro 64...cause i have a Zalman 9500 and like 4 120mm fans at 1.504V and i can't get my idle and load temps anywhere near yours?...also have u adjusted chipset voltage? or PCI-E speed?

I have a few pictures of my rig in the gallery... http://www.overclock.net/gallery/sho...0&ppuser=27125

My airflow is amazing I must admit

Haven't touched chipset voltage, and PCI-E is locked to 100Mhz.

I may increase PCI-E bus to 112Mhz max in order to OC over 3.05Ghz but I haven't tried it yet.

Let me know if you have anymore questions!

Keep in mind that you might very well not be able to extract the kinds of speed out of that 4400 as you are right now. If you can only get 2.7 or 2.8Ghz out of the 4400 then you will not find very much (if any) difference between a 4000+ X2 @ 3.0Ghz and a 4400+ X2 @ 2.8Ghz.

I would not even think of such a move personally. That is unless you like spending money.

Personally IMO 65NM is nothing major to wait for mate.

However I wouldnt get that CPU as its a little Pricey..Have you not considered the Opteron range.
post #20 of 24
SantaAnna Optys perhaps, 1210, 1212

And how can anyone yet judge the 65nu CPUs yet, we can't so that is why I say to wait to see when they do come out.
