new mb and cpu results very impressive

Postby wicked1 on Mon Apr 19, 2004 1:51 am

I installed another motherboard last night to replace my water damaged one and installed my new cpu.The cpu is an athlon mobile xp 2600+. I am watercooling it with a rather large homebuilt system,danger den waterblock and with a 5 gallon resevoir.I have it running at 2700 actual mhz stable. It ran prime95 from last night till this afternoon.CPU temp peaked at 46C. I am only running it at 1.9V.To hit 2520 mhz on my old barton 2500+ required at least 2V. I am very pleased with the sandra test results too. Very quick.Time to play painkiller.Heres a screenshot.

I only use it when winamp wont play it. It plays almost anything though. I prefer to use winamp though just out of ease of use.

which version of winamp do you use?
i've heard 2.8 was the best, 3 was lame, 5 is so-so.

seeing as we're off-topic, i've also been meaning to tell you that the Tomlin quote is nice, but i liked the previous sig better. :)

I am using winamp 5.03. To be honest its rare that I watch video files on the computer. I usually use my xbox media player which streams from my computer.I just have been using winamp since its inception and have almost 40 gigs of music.I just check that the file plays for a few seconds with the computer.Right now I cant remember what my previous sig was but give till afternoon when I'm sober and I might. :lol:

Dumb question, but what's the point of using a mobile procesor when it's not a mobile computer?

Probably produces a lot less heat

Heh heh. The mobile XP 2500+ and 2600+ are all the rage with AMD fans right now. Nearly all of these chips (which retail for slightly above the non-mobile ones) can do 2.4+ghz on air. Unfortunately (or maybe not, I guess I'm just spoiled), my Mobile Athlon XP 2500+ (default 1.83ghz) can only do 2.4ghz regaurdless of the voltage in my Abit NF7-S nForce2 mobo. Oh well, that should do me until the Athlon 64 FX drops out of the stratosphere cost-wise;)

Here here! The 2.xx series was, and still is great. I'm actually scared to try v5 because of what a bomb and half v3 was. Surprisingly enough, I only use Winamp for music, even though it can handle video. I use Windows Media Player for most video: avi, wmv, mpg. I normally use Media Player Classic for RM, don't know why, Windows Media Player can play it (with the right codecs), I just got used to using Media Player Classic for RM stuff. It must be a mental thing. :P

they are multiplier unlocked from the factory for one and they are designed to run at lower voltages so when you crank the voltage up you get a good overclock without alot of heat comparitevly speaking.

Ah, that does make sence now...

[rant]I'd still rather use Intel any day though, they produce nowhere near as much heat. I have a 2.6C running @ 2.9 w/ HT and it's @ 86 F for the CPU, and 80 F on the mobo, that's with my ultra sweet thermalright sp-94 heatsink.[/rant]

Another dumb question, can the mobile xp's fit in a normal socket a mobo? aka. are they the same physical size?

yes they fit the same motherboards but not all mbs will boot with them due to unknown cpu type. you can make an athlon xp a mobile xp with cutting traces. The point of doing that is on the fly overclocking. I can change voltage,multiplier and fsb inside windows but the real mobile athlons run better at lower voltages. Regarding Intel I am not a fan of them. The last intel cpu I have used was a 386 sx 16. My athlon will walk on an intel cpu. :D

thanks, NoSmartz and Wiz.
i used to use Winamp 3 till my system got messed up a few months ago, didn't bother installing any player since, been using Win Media Pleayer since (i have an irrational aversion to anything MS even if it's good).

a few days ago i canced on some website and downloaded the installers for both winamp 2.81 and 3.0.
i guess i'll install 2.81.

or maybe i'll nudge myself into something i've been meaning to do for a long time - try out foobar2000.
some people say it's the best!

wicked1, how do you change those things from within Windows?

a program called CPUMSR and the nvidia system utility.CPUMSR uses the powernow commands for the mobile athlons and allows multiplier and voltage changes, The nvidia tool allows FSB changes along with AGP clock frequency and all memory timings.
