Yeah, well a 3200+ with a X1900 XT isn't exactly balanced and yes it does bottleneck. It would be better if I had a 6800 GT actually.

It arrived Yesterday

Gotta love getting things next day. Even though i paid for 3 day shipping

I ordered at 1:30 Pm and got it the next day.

It was shipped out of Memphis, i live in nashville so its close.

Anyway, i ended up having to reset my BIOS and it worked fine.

I ran 3D Mark 03 Before and After with just changing the Proc.

I know 3D Mark Is all about the GPU but, i ran it non the less.

I started with 12,450 and ended with 12,900 thats at stock speeds.


I let it run for about 5 hours and monitored my temps, Proc Sits at about 29-32 Degrees Celcius.

I have not tried to overclock yet, and will tongiht.


BTW how do you find out what stepping you have? is it written on the Proc Die?

Yeah, on the heatspreader of the processor. The second line is usually the one you want to take note about. The rest doesn't matter that much, but you can write it down just in case.

How about you get that R600, then we'll trade between that and my R580.

It either means HyperThreading or HyperTransport. Since it's an AMD processor, it'll be HyperTransport.
