    Grats, I have one heading my way too. Cant wait to abuse it
    Particle's First Rule of Online Technical Discussion:
    As a thread about any computer related subject has its length approach infinity, the likelihood and inevitability of a poorly constructed AMD vs. Intel fight also exponentially increases.

    Rule 1A:
    Likewise, the frequency of a car pseudoanalogy to explain a technical concept increases with thread length. This will make many people chuckle, as computer people are rarely knowledgeable about vehicular mechanics.

    Rule 2:
    When confronted with a post that is contrary to what a poster likes, believes, or most often wants to be correct, the poster will pick out only minor details that are largely irrelevant in an attempt to shut out the conflicting idea. The core of the post will be left alone since it isn't easy to contradict what the person is actually saying.

    Rule 2A:
    When a poster cannot properly refute a post they do not like (as described above), the poster will most likely invent fictitious counter-points and/or begin to attack the other's credibility in feeble ways that are dramatic but irrelevant. Do not underestimate this tactic, as in the online world this will sway many observers. Do not forget: Correctness is decided only by what is said last, the most loudly, or with greatest repetition.

    Remember: When debating online, everyone else is ALWAYS wrong if they do not agree with you!

    I agree, an AM3 ES. I believe most AMD ES chips in NA ship from their offices in Texas, I'd confirm it being Austin but I can't find my box full of invoices. Have fun with it, let's see some screaming clocks with some Core i7 DDR3 memory kits

    Hmm I don't think its a 945 or ES...preety sure its retail. I'm working on getting some DDR3, nothing spectacular but it works and it's 1600 speed. Still have to decide on motherboard, was hoping to see some results/pros/cons of the gigabyte/asus.

    Very cool running chip, Here's a shot stock to show defaults speeds, voltage and temps.

    Nah I have no brand loyalty when it comes to motherboards, its either hit or miss. Some times they get lucky and it works, sometimes it doesn't.

    The gigabyte is a PITA to get 2800+ NB speeds on and refuses to cold boot @ 2800+ NB, then again its a GX board, not necessarily enthusiast. Probably the best GX board of them all, It was/is a temp solution to test with.

    Dumo regards the asus M4A79 rather highly, hopefully the AM3 variant does as well.

    My daughter will likely inherit 790gx with a 3250e if i can find one.

    If plans work out this weekend I will probably be able to see both boards in action firsthand. If not then I will put this chip under DI on the GX board.

    Santa claus sent it to me

    Its on air, I think AOD may be reporting temps wrong, gonna stick my multimeter probe on it and see what it says.

    Temp on heatpipe closest to center of cpu and closest to actual IHS says 23C via probe, ambient is 22C.....

    Chew, Keep us up to date on the boards. I should have my 945BE in the next few days so Ive gotta decide on a board until then. I realy do like the looks of that Gigabyte board.

    If it makes you feel any better AFI, I chopped the tip of my finger off with my nasty delta fan while testing

    Working on 4.2 validation atm......

    It's not a big issue for the majority. I haven't used more than two modules since my 386 DX. I think they will fix this issue in the C3 stepping.

    Anyway similar or worse issue exists on DDR2-1066 since the first Phenom B2 stepping.



    Even so, I've never experienced this issue on my machine.

    this chip is preety amazing, not as sensitive to volts as my 940 BE, 1.65v in bios and still booting windows at fairly warm ambients.

    Gonna see if I can squeeze a little more out of it for a suicide......
