AMD Sempron 3100+ Overclocking
8 times as much????!!! The Pentium 4 E 3.4GHZ ihas MSRP of 278US, and the Sempron 3100+ has a MSRP of 12x US I dunno where your getting 8 times as much from more like 2.5 times as much.
Would be nice to see what how an OC'd Stock AMD64 3000+ compares using it's stock cooling. Looking at newegg.com the prices of the mb, Sempron 3100, and Thermaltake Silentboost = $282. The Stock AMD64 3000+ plus a slightly cheaper but still great mb, the DFI "LANPARTY UT nF3 250Gb" = $298. Not much of a difference, but I'm sure the Silentboost is better than the stock AMD HSF on the AMD64 3000+. Also according to the messageboards over at Overclockers.com, the AMD64 3000+ has a 10multiplier instead of a 9 that the Sempron and AMD64 2800+ has... or something like that. All this multiplying and dividing is a little confusing to me since I haven't messed with these systems any.
You mean the K8T890 chipset.
I was debating the Sempron vs. A64-2800 for a while, but for $37 more, why bother? When 64-bit OS actually arrives, I will then upgrade to a capable processor.
Just curious what they do to disable 64-bit? Is it a bridge setting, or a redesigned core? If it is a bridge setting, I wonder if a Pin mod would work to enable it...Hmmm.
Seems to be stable at 2.5 also, but at 2.6 it starts choking.
EPOX S754 NFORCE3, FSB800, 8 CH, GLAN
Which one would be the best?
