My AMD Athlon X2 4400+ Build  

post #1 of 24
Thread Starter 
My system has been built for quite a while now, but I've rebuilt it so often I feel like it's a new system over and over and over... Well you get the point.

It currently has:

Motherboard: DFI LanParty UT NF4 SLI-DR Expert
Proc: AMD Athlon X2 4400+ (Socket 939)
Memory: 2 Gig Kingston HyperX
Video: Chaintech 7900GS
HDD(s): 250G WD, 500G Samsung, 250G External USB SATA
Case: Thermaltake Armor (air cooled)

I haven't overclocked this computer as of yet, but hopefully with a friends help and the magic of the Genie BIOS on the DFI board I'll be able to jump it up to 2.8 GHz. I've overclocked the GPU to 585 MHz and video memory to 775MHz. Not the greatest, but not too bad either.

The GPU runs at 37C idle and 42C load. The GPU runs at 48C constant even after playing Battlefield 2 for several hours. (Maybe my monitoring program is lying to me???)

I'll try to get some pics posted here soon.

I always enjoy opinions and criticism so let me know what you think.

You should've gone for an AM2 cheap-o rig. But this one looks good so far and we want pics!

You are absotively, posilutely correct. I should have gone with the AM2, but I bought this chip and board right before they released the AM2. D'oh!!!

Being the proud owner of a 4400+ S939, I'm very curious to see how far you get--I've been wanting to get the DFI Lanparty mobo to OC, but have been apprehensive because I am not sure if the $150 or so for the mobo will be worth the 500-800 MHz gain--kinda a crapshoot how far a CPU will get (depending on stepping, cooling, etc.). So please let us know how it goes! It might convince me to "upgrade" my S939 rig instead of going new C2D. Good luck.

I am actually going to OC tomorrow afternoon. I'll keep you all posted with all the applicable screenshots. I am looking forward to this very much. First time for seriously overclocking a system. I finally have a MB, case and cooling that can handle it. Wish me luck and I'll drink a beer for you to celebrate!

You know I was lucky enough. Last week I had my s939 build and I was at work, I never go to work in the morning but that day there was a guy who wanted to get a new dual core pc, and so I offered some parts of my machine and he already had the money in hands, I coudln't lose that chance! So Iwas lucky and got my dream machine, a brisbane (*****).

Here are the pics as promised. I want to take some of the case at night, but since some of you are so vehement on getting pics, I thought I would post these just to appease you... I'll be taking some more tonight when I get home and have some screenshots.

On an aside, I overclocked the system yesterday thanks in a big way to kc-tr. He helped me get it up to 2.6GHz. I would have been able to get higher, but there was a limitation to my memory. I'm too cheap right now to buy better RAM.
