Antec 900
Logitech X-530

Zalman 9500 am2 (no fanmate)

Right now I am still installing my programs so not much for ocing and I don't know how much I want/should push this system, brand new so some burning in needs to be done I think. I've run a few stress testers and my temps are about 30/43 C. I need something more and I am getting 3dmark06 basic and I'll run that later on.

I've got some more reading to do for what is right for this system and I did make a few pics whilst I was putting it together and I'll add in cpu-z pics too. Great to have a x2 finally and I am looking forward to what it can do. I think my mobo is going to be the holdout for me but it was a good price.

Looks like a nice build but why such a crappy Video Card? And its ATI in an SLI board? I mean the 8800GT Dual Slots are like $100 these days and they are kick butt cards! And work in SLI with your board!

Ya pretty much, Corry is right, when my M2N-SLI comes back from RMA, I might pick up some used 8800gt's on here.

Hey guys,

Ya I know it is not the best but it is what I can afford right now. I do plan on getting a gforce card asap. I don't know what I want first...better mobo or the gf.

I got $1k for my 50th bday from my family and after going on a spending spree I came up short for the card. I was thinking of upgrading to the deluxe version of this mobo but... When I get my gst for the past 2 1/2 years then the mobo/video is going to get better. I was checking out all the evga 8800/9800 cards and it is hard to choose. I game but not at high resolution but I would like higher settings. Right now I do 1400/900 and it is not all that bad.

Unfortunately I set mine to auto because I couldn't figure out how to set it manually.

Hey Corry and Chief,

Well the price where you are might be that but here in Alberta Canada they are more costly. I got two stores that I watch for prices and the best that I can get for an 8800gt is 159 for the regular and 10 more for the superclock'd version. For right now what I have will work but when I get my gst rebate you can be sure that I'll be going for the 88gt. The 512 SC costs $168 and the deluxe version of our mobos is 140. I am looking at the am2+ boards so that I can keep my BE and upgrade to a Phenom whenever.

If you board is like mine it will support the Phenoms in the AM2 socket with the newer BIOS!

Well guys (&gals),

So it has been lots of fun trying to get over 3Ghz with my combo. And I am not going to worry anymore about it. Come Thursday afternoon I'll have the deluxe mobo up and running, and I hope that I don't really have to reinstall xp...but if I have to.

I have had Orthos run 8-10 hours if I keep the cpu below 3Ghz anything over errors out right quick like. Maybe the ram is too high and voltages are something missing from the sli version. I can't post with 2t timings other than stock. I've tried 14@210 5x and Orthos gives me trouble at about 4 hours blending. Ditto with anthing more than what I got now for 13x. I get beepcodes, 2long 1 short ??? going with 16x and my mem 1/2t. It's a good thing that the cmos pin is so handy . I cannot tell you "everything" I've tried cause I got a short-term ram problem of my own.

I got a solid 11hours of Orthos with a 4xht, 13mulit and 225 bus speed. HT is 902, mem is 419 of 555 18 24 and this is the Kingston value ram. I haven't done anything with ddr2 before so I have no clue but I am going to have to reread the ocing stickys again, and again...memory and age sucks...

And I did take two snaps with my Pearl and cpu/mem screenys for you to view.

Mmmm I know that I had more that I want'd tell you for info but I'm not scanning too good this a.m. so I'll be very very sure to write down my processing when I get the new board. It costs 140 plus I am going to get a evga 9600gt, and eat a few extra boxes of Kraft Dinner through the month. Mushkin ram next month or so then maybe another 9600...been reading about them for the past week or so and they seem to sli pretty good compared to the 8800gt which the cheapest evga I can find is 170+. The 96gt will do me good for sometime to come and is waaay better than what I got now.

So pics now then bye bye and have a great day.

half done


1st cable management try (not very good but...)

Oh man,

Decisions and more so. A great store here has 96/88's ($131/167) on sale. Plus the deluxe and 32 (139/177) version of our boards. Now I can eat more KD October by grabbing up an 8800gt and the high end board. Or get the good board and a 9600gt which I think is the better deal as I can always grab another 96 for sli. Whatcha think?!? Somewhere between $260 and $344.
