General Hardware / [Frontpage News]E4300 Overclocking
« on: August 06, 2007, 08:23:42 AM »

Rodney takes the E4300 processor from Intel and does some overclocking in the 3DGameman forum.  This processor comes clocked at 9x 200FSB (800QDR) for a 1.8GHz speed.  It has 2MB of cache and just begs to be overclocked.  Some people have reported 3.4GHz + with this processor so it will be interesting to see where Rodney gets his.

   Maximum everything. Energy-efficient per. . .

Well i understand that overclocking sounds tempting, espacially with the low-end intels. But people forget that OC can kill a CPU. Maybe not immediately, but i don't believe a 200% oc'ed CPU will last forever. I remember that the AMD Durons some years ago have had good OC-potential, too. I've read articles about people who could OC their durons from 700 to 1400 Mhz, but guess what, after 6 months even with good cooling the CPU was finished. And i'm not even talking about the higher power consumption, the random  application-errors, bluescreens, whatsoever.

General Hardware / [Frontpage News]GeCube X1950 Pro

3DGameMan pulls off a written review about the X1950Pro from GeCube.  While this card doesn't offer DX10 support, it does provide better gaming performance that the recently release HD 2400 and HD 2600 cards from AMD.  Sometimes older can be better. . .

   x1950Pro video card is an excellent product based of the tried and true x1xxx series cards from AMD. The included cooler only t. . .

yepp... agreed! i bought a x1950 pro from sapphire recently, its much quicker than the HD2600XT and even quicker than the Geforce 8600GTS. and compared to the Geforce 7600GT which i had before, the graphics are somehow nicer, too. the only drawback is that is has no dx10 support, but i can live with that. there are not many DX10 games available yet, so i think buyers should wait until there are good mid-range DX-10 offers on the market.

i thinks these guys are fooling us... i can't tell no difference.  ???
