Re: What game are you playing now?

in Milliways
Crysis was somehow both fun and frustration. Fun for the most time, frustrating whenever I had to pilot anything or whenever I would encounter a helicopter, AI of which was obviously cheating because it would always know where I was, because even if I was cloaked, it would just float right above me …

Re: Any love for AM2?

So, it seems like there isn't any love for AM2.......... IMHO it wasn't outstanding, didn't bring much to the plate apart from DDR2. If you want to build a system there is much better to look for. I made a X2 5000+ for my father and he remembers it fondly as it was a big bump from what he had, he …

Re: What game are you playing now?

After playing through Half-Life 2 several times, including (finally) making it through set to hard mode, I thought I'd try MMod since it seemed to be highly recommended. But I encountered a few different bugs that just ruined it for me. The man hacks are so tough that I ran out of ammunition at one …

Re: PC Chips 754LMR+

You should redo the project, because it seems viable to have a 200 MHz SDRAM in that motherboard. The core itself will OC to 180/185 MHz I have still to try this mod in both of my PCChips M754MLR+. Tin the pads, make them very fat to avoid loose legs. Check legs being aligned and touching the pads …

Re: PC Chips 754LMR+

You should redo the project, because it seems viable to have a 200 MHz SDRAM in that motherboard. The core itself will OC to 180/185 MHz I have still to try this mod in both of my PCChips M754MLR+. I need a microscope to solder the ram chips and some pads are lifted: difficulty level is "high". …

Re: What modern activity did you get up to today?

Finally resoldered a new LAN chip that died on a 1156 m/b. Had to do it twice as on the first run I didn't tin well enough the pads and many legs were loose. Trying to solder them one by one was just too time consuming. Second run I made them pads fat with tin and had just two legs to touch up with …

Re: Any love for AM2?

Did anybody try 4gb ddr2 modules on AM2+ motherboards with AM2/AM3 CPUs like the Athlon II and Phenom II.? I have an M2N-E with an Athlon II 265, but I don't have any 4gb ddr2 modules to try, only the late low profile and very common 2gb ddr2 800 modules. Since the memory controller is on the CPU, …

Re: Any love for AM2?

I recently thought about a socket AM2/3 retro rig. 1) to make sense vs 775 I need it low power: I can get a C2D with x2 for lower power and better performance There are those 4850e and 5050e brisbane core X2s that are lower wattage. On a nforce 400 mATX board they will pootle along at under 50W at …

Re: Any love for AM2?

I recently thought about a socket AM2/3 retro rig. I ran into some issues while researching for a good combination vs a 775. Badly phrased: 1) to make sense vs 775 I need it low power: I can get a C2D with x2 for lower power and better performance 2) ddr2 vs ddr1 (939 vs am2) makes little everyday …

Re: Bought this (Modern) hardware today

in Milliways
Anyone tried those crypto mining rig frames as testbenches? They've been getting quite cheap. Main concern is whether you can still install full height cards to motherboard easily. They seem a bit on the wide side for convenience, like 30% too big, but since it's all rail sections could maybe cut …

Re: What modern activity did you get up to today?

in Milliways
I wanted to test some Phenom II on a motherboard I recently acquired, a socket AM3+. The seller sold it as broken as it wouldn't POST, but it worked perfectly when I tested it. It wasn't anymore and it kept stopping at the same point. I tried to press somewhat on the cpu and it would cycle further …
