I am looking forward to working on a new rig at the moment 🙂 I have got the board now, i am looking to sell the rams and processor only. If there is a chance to get really good rams, i would be thrilled. The processor is crucial.. I need a good processor 🙂
1. Ram : Crucial 10th Anniversary, Team Extreem 1066Mhz
2. Processor : X3320
Today, well its slow moving though i get to sell some of my old stuff, for more money, to support my oc 🙂 There will be more to write the coming weekend because i get to loan x3320 and a pair of micron d9gmh sticks to test 🙂 Hope to get some benchmarks and ill post it up here 🙂
im officially retired from my oc scene and will be so till i have enough dough or sponsorship to support my hobby. Having been overclocking for 2 years now, its been a wonderful journey of ups and downs, though i have never got the chance to do any extreme overclocking with DICE and LN2. I want to focus my time on learning the essentials of overclocking and learning more about my boards reaction to my processor.
Having retired doesnt mean that i wont come back to the scene anymore.. i am actually looking forward to it with a big bang 🙂 It also looks like i wont be able to join the MSI overclocking tourney because of lack of resources.
Hello. Back again.. Today i did a full test on my Foxconn Mars wit the E2140 Mo. It just wouldnt boot with anything above 380Mhz*8=3.04Ghz, which is disappointed but perhaps overlooked before buying the board. This board doesnt seem to like the e2140 too much, unlike the Abit in which the processor speed soars. Below is the stable top speed achieved for my e2140

today was a day where i got pretty nasty on a top overclocker. number 1 in malaysia. I challenged him on DICE and i have no idea why i did that…. Will keep you updated with this challenge later on…
Also a challenge to break the 24K mark in 3dmark06, which needs incredible cpu power… but if i do break it, i would get sponsorship chances i hope…
two challenges now
1.24k mark in 3dmark06
2.e2140 world record in SP1M
I have to update my rankings…
Still on the lookout for a proper image database to store all my pics, i shall leave out the glory days of the IP35-E for now and bask on the Foxconn Mars instead. By the looks of it, Foxconn Mars definitely does strike the eye of a techie, why? because its just gorgeous. It is beautiful on the outside and the Bios does all u want as an overclocker. For a newbie to work on this board, would take an effective 2 weeks or more to work around this board.
Word does say that Foxconn doesnt like petite processors like the E2140, i wonder why. It is built to serve the current wolfsdale, yorksfield, and extreme processors of Intel. I can say that for 6 hours yesterday i was trying to work on something. At least an overclock.. i manage to push it up from 200Mhz on the FSB to 300Mhz, which is a 50% overclock. Not too bad. More to come on that later though.
On the other hand, the Abit IP35-e might have had a pretty rough day with its new owner, since it did not want to enter BIOS, or even not have its ram slots work. Maybe all the work has put out the glow of this once invincible motherboard. Priced at Rm370 once, it managed a bus overclock of 517Mhz on a E6400. Which i find amazing.
Alright laterz, then. Nap time 😛
