He said he wants his 4 PATA devices. Personally I would just buy some new SATA drives just because I can go back to Intel chipsets.crazybus wrote:650i SLI boards suck at quad-core overclocking and won't run quad-core yorkfields, just in case you don't know. I recommend cheap and plentiful P35 boards for Intel builds, unless you have some reason for dual video cards.
Or a x1 card to use those new fangled PCIe slots.Gilligan wrote:i mean i could just buy a PCI PATA thing.
Especially when it comes to overclocking the quads, yes. It may not have as many blue crystals marchitecture bullet points, but I value Intel chipset's stability over Nvidia's not-so-solid track record.Gilligan wrote:So the P35 chipset is a better overclocker and all around chipset than the 650?
Good, then you are all set on the P35.Gilligan wrote:I could totally care less about SLI.
Yup. Yorkfield = quad, Wolfdale = duo, Penryn = mobile (also an umbrella term for the whole family of the 45nm chips).Gilligan wrote:so the yorkfield are the new 45nm core 2s right?
There is one with only 6MB of total L2 cache supposedly costing the same as today's Q6600. Details here.Gilligan wrote:Is yorkfield going to be released in cheap versions
The VRMs have not changed, so even the 965 can deal with those.Gilligan wrote:I mean should I be looking for a board that supports it.
You don't have to, but you may have to wait a bit. The current rumours are putting the Wolfdales on January 20 and the Yorkfields a bit later in the quarter as they are working on an erratum (now that Intel has one, the DAAMIT fanboys are thankfully shutting up, balance has been achieved).Gilligan wrote:I am all about going price/performance. I'm not looking to spend 1000 bucks on a CPU.
They just do apparently (same thing seems to apply to the 650 chipset).Gilligan wrote:So the Asus P5n will not overclock a q6600 very well???? Why would it overclock that card any worse than an e4300.
The ongoing conspiracy theory is that Intel did not give Nvidia all the info they need, but then again this is not the first time Nvidia chipsets have trouble forward-supporting CPUs.Gilligan wrote:All I would be doing is raising the FSB as much as possible. The Asus reportably gets to 450.
