Please comment away!
I've not really googled it but beings it runs dual processors, does anybody know if you can have a faster processor on one side and a slower on the other side. Because if I spend like 40$ more on the processor it's 200 mhz faster. (I've already purchased one processor and there is no return policy
, they lowered the price 38$ after I buy it, and lowerd the price to the next step up as well heh.)
Can you run the board with a single processor, I'm getting the motherboard in a few days, and I want to get it up and test running because the return policys are pretty sh***y on expensive items.
Do you have to run Dual Channel memory on a 64 bit processors, not like your using the other 32 bit rofl. Because I have an extra stick of 512 pc3200 ram in my pc, that I'm gonna borrow (has a gig of ram). And Win64 is a waste of money, nobody even makes drivers for it yet.
I'm going to probably OC my CPUs, which company makes great Heat Sink? I see Zalmans everywhere. I got burned on a Heat Sink a while back, the regular amd heat sink whooped it's can. I even stuck it on a duron 1.3 gighz, and it couldn't keep it cool enough... :/
It has dual Rj45's would it matter if I hooked up the same internet to the both ports. I mean I got 3 meg dsl, but would it make a difference if I had two lines running to it... (I could understand if I had like T1 or something like that)
Also what do you guys think of Light Srcibe DVD Burners, anybody try them out?
Oh, here is my old rig as of soon.
MB: MSI k7n2 Delta-L
CPU: 3200 Amd Barton Core
Ram: 1 gig PC 3200 Inferno, with heat spreaders
HDD: SCSI u160 73 GIG, and a 40 gig IDE HDD
Lite on DVD (kinda old, but does the job)
Floppy (What's the point, 1.44 mb just doesn't cut it anymore)
Vid Card: BFG 6800 GT OC (Just bought it for some idiotic reason)
Case: Blue X-Blade case with a 450 Watt PSU
O/S: Windows XP Home
(Sigh, my sister has dibbs on my current computer. I'm running out of room, got a Laptop in here as well. 3 computers, and 3 monitors just doesn't fit on my desk... Lol!)
Thanks for the comments etc.
