you done the hipro mods from xs? (to the ct)
Nah just the mods for the fsb jumper and power pins so they didnt stick up, There was a mixed reaction over at xs and a lot of folk didnt find it made much difference so i didnt bother
Can't take credit really it was welshtom who did them for me as my soldering skills are crap
yeah i was gonna say, my mate did them and it made no difference then he knocked a cap off and killed the ct lol - not really worth it
bloody welshtom, hope he likes my ps2
120mb for a winxp? howd u do that then? any tutorials about? wouldnt mind having a copy on my flash key, would be very cool to show off the school pc booting up on my own profile
Do a google search and download a program called Nlite,
Follow the instructions and your sorted.
Bear in mind a 120mb is the absolute basics needed for windows to run would be useless for normal usage
but not benching
around 300 mb is useful - lucky me i have a 1gb cf card - its to easy lol - super pi'n college computers
what fsb's have you had that board at mate?
Only 200 but not used clockgen yet that'll come tomorrow
Xp is installed with only 12 processes running which is still more than i'd like but that'll get sorted soon enough.
Drivers are installed and i got 17300 in 3dmark01 with everything stock and no tweaks, only running one stick of ram to since i forgot about that before lol
17k stock - should be looking at 35-40k clocked
17900 now, decent 600 point increase from dual channel
No cpu clockage going to happen though till i get the bios sorted as its reseting itself every time i boot up and clockgen can't go all the way from 133 to >250 since agp locks would kill be
My overall goal is 40k and i'll be very, very pleased if i hit it.
EDIT: Yep using clockgen really doesnt work if you try high fsb's with no agp lock
Small increase to CPU has netted 21000ish in 3dm01
Which gives it around 2500 points from 300mhz. If this is a linear type of increase, if i get to ~3.2ghz that should put me around 30k. Then with tweaks and high clocks to the x800 i could be on target
Looking sweet Marv, nice to see this project finally got started
I'll be watching this thread with interest!
wmahahaha looks like fun!
be sure to put something on your feet before you go splashing dry ice about though eh?
looking good marv
Well it was short lived, got 2 broken ct-479 adaptors now, can only put the problems down to these.
One wont post at all, the other has a missing pin and keeps telling me i've changed the cpu so resets the bios everytime
No money for more either atm, hopefully it'll be revived soon
EDIT: Nope worse, seems the ct-479's are fine however the dothan wont boot in either of the adaptors
Now stuck at the decision point of do i sell my nicely modded x800 to pay for a new dothan and be stuck with a gf3 ti500, or do i just use and old celeron m which does ~2.3 and keep the x800.
depends, do you want a working OMG PC or a good graphics card?
All of its for purely benching aspect, new cpu gives me the option of superpi, the x800 gives me 3dmark ability
did you kill the cpu putting the mach2 on it ?
i dont mind testing the dothan if you like, i gotta take my XP120 off to fit a xp90c soon anyway.
(edit, it must be the cpu really, i assume you tested the adaptors with smelerons, offer is still open anyway.)
Nope not a clue what killed it, didnt even make it to the mach 2 stage
Dothan plus ct-479 with broken pin worder last night and got the above scores
This morning the same, so i took the ct-479 out and put another in which has no broken pins, no post.
Took that out and put the broken pin one back in with the dothan and no post again.
Tried a celeron M with dothan core and it posted, so tried the celly in the other ct-479 and it posted and worked fine, changed to the 730 and no post again.
I've a feeling at one point i took the dothan out (i assume between the changing the adaptors the first time) and installed a ihs, but dur to the extra height the stock cooler wouldnt fit so maybe i tried with too much force to get it to fit and that broke it i'm not sure
Thanks will add you to msn mate
99% proved to be pretty much spot on
prehaps sell 1 ct and the celeron m that should maybe get you to 50 quid, i know some selling a dothan at close to that
edit: flog the dothan as spairs/repairs on auction aswell
Dont really want to sell either ct-479 as one is faulty and the other i need lol.
I have 2 celeron m chips which i'm going to sell soon.
The dothan is going to stiggeh tomorrow hopefully he can get it working and buy it Dont see a dead dothan selling for much though
