AMD FX-70,72,74 CPUs on Newegg! - Page 4

post #31 of 115
FX-74 how far can you OC it???
post #32 of 115
That is a vague question.

You should ask something like, "Has anyone got any decent OC's?" lol

Best i have seen on the 74 is 400mhz stable OC

I would hate to remind you that you are paying $980 for a makeshift power eating quad core system that isn't nearly as good as Intel QX6700 + P5B for only $1200. At least the QX6700 route has a real upgrade path. You will need to get a new case to fit that motherboard too!

no the 4x4 fits in ATX cases.

AMD advertised 2 procs in each box, if it isnt, i say f off newegg.

and two 4 core procs in the future, along with 4 GPU's that will be 65nm.

4x4 Has advantages not yet usable with XP.

This is fricking dejavu all over again!

First, when Intel's Prescott were consuming 130W of power.....everybody biatched about how much power consumption they had, tables turn and now AMD is consuming almost the same amount of power and (Intel is not now) everybody starts biatching about it? Com'on!

*** people? How about no one concentrates on the power that a video card consumes nowadays? I mean, if power consuming is "such" a thing to worry about it? (Because no one was recommending a 600W+ when Prescott came out but we're recommending 600W+ PSU minimum if someone is going to get a G80. Unbelievable)

Then get a PDA and be happy that you'll get a system that consumes about 5W of total power.

You did the benchmarks? I'd say that they are about equal.
