Free AntiVirus

I've been using Avira from a German company for years. It's not a resource hog like AVG is for you crunchers out there. I like the fact it also does root kit detection in the free version. Not a lot of free ones offer that. it updates daily. Check it out at http://www.free-av.com/

Re: Overclocking - (voltage) temp = stability, TNX Dave!

I have located heat sinks like the ones used by purrkur for $4.99 ea.USD, (same heat sink but slower fan and less flow) and 80mm Delta fans that flow 47cfm @ 2700 rpm for $10.00 USD for 5!

Re: Tips for noob

Hi, just managed to get my hands on a BP6 and matching sets of 366 and 466 celerons. I'm going to use this board in my HTPC-project. Any tips for me? I'll post some pics when I get my camera back, and I'm probably going to write a webpage about my project in the future. More on that later. Ps. Nice...

But some of the blame has to go against the code as it was written. I should mention that the software that gave us issues was a client and not a server side component. It is a financial application that does heavy duty calculations among other things. The code itself was faultless and worked on si...

Well thanks Purrkur, I was wondering what your point was. I guess it all depends on your perspective here. As an end user I see some benefit to HT. But I can see how it could cause problems in servers. Of course I still stick by the point that it’s free and if you don’t need it or it causes problems...

Re: Intel confirms hyperthreading is a goner

Most of you know that I have a certain dislike to Intel's Hyperthreading. Not the technology per se but Intel's implementation of it. It was never any good and it was never any more than just a marketing tool/gimmick. It seems like Intel is finally pulling the plug on the thing . They seem to be sa...

Re: chance of getting 2x366Mhz Celerons to work @550Mhz

Hi! Just got two 500Mhz Cellis working together (now) in my recapped and ec10 modded ver 1.0 bp6 board. How big is the chance of buying two 366Mhz celerons on ebay and letting them work at 550 and 100Mhz FSB? the 500 ones dont overclock to 750mhz. that would have been a big surprise ;-). i dont lik...

Re: 700MHz Celeron II

I just bought myself a motherboard based on th 815 chipset from Intel with built in sound and graphics. The board is a micro ATX size with 3 PCI and 1 AGP port (despite the built in graphics) and I would say that the quality of it is impressive. It is a pull from a Fujitsu-Siemens computer. Along w...

I'm just guessing here, but I think it has more to do with how the two OS's handle IRQ's. I'd try just moving what cards you can to different slots. May very well solve your problem. Generally 16 bit hardware doesn't mean it's incompatible with 32 bit OS's.

yeah, but the Opterons & Athlons work better than P4s!!! :D
Not in my experience. My Northwood's are almost twice as fast as any non AMD 64 chip clock for clock.
