lol eva2000... NOT HAPPY JAN... i just typed like a 600 word essay explaining everything thus far... but when I clicked Post Reply, the IE hung... which is weird since I'm on my sister's computer... which I didn't think would have the same thing happen to it (it's happened a couple times on my computer...)...

nar, lol it's no big deal... not your fault either... but basically I was explaining why the CABYE is overall THE cpu for me. To put it simply, the CABGE is better for people on air/watercooling who like silence and low volts. Yes, it is better than my good CABYE by around 40-50mhz at 1.48 volts, but at 1.53volts, the gap is already down to 10-20mhz, and at 1.56v, the CABGE is already surpassed.

Basically, I'm not gonna type out that whole essay again... argh... but to the other i4m users - please refrain from condemning me from my decision - if it was a better choice to have kept it and give my 144 CABYE away - I would have done so... but I'm a very logical person. And to T_M - I am in no way shape or form limited by a 9x multi either...

edit: in time, my friends, you shall see my decision was the correct one...
There were also many other factors towards me being forced to sell the 146... basically, if I kept the 146, I woudl've had to give the 144 away, which obviously I don't want to do as the 144 is the better clocker.

anyway i need another hard drive... i've had just 1 x WD 120GB IDE for FAR TOO LONG... and running out of space, not to mention like 4 partitions on 1 drive isn't too smart, lol...

what do u guys think of maxtor 16mb cache SATA 250GB drive? it's only $162, and I assume with the 16MB cache it ought to fly...

edit: damnz, hard drives so cheap these days... coudl buy 2 of those sata's and have 500gb without even busting my wallet... (well hehe, less than what i sold the 146 for)

edit: what I do want to know is - is SATA 3 AND 4 DEFINITELY not affected by HTT speed? I don't want to potentially sacrifice HTT just so I can get an SATA drive....

dinos no wonder your pi times are slow, you're running apache service in background!
heheheh didn't realise that affected performance..........hmmmm thinks of all those previous scores..........yeah i posted this on purpose to see if anyone would see some unneeded apps there

i think my windows is dirty...........last night i was booting at 3.1GHz and got the windows corrupt message...heheh but went to bios loaded Optimised Defaults and bang it booted fine.....so i guess i'll refrain from 3.1+ booting from SATA drive until i setup my 60GB IDE drive for benching

Lol i am the person who is buying grooves opteron off him but i just have a question about why these CABGE's are supposedly so bad. Is their something wrong with their memory controller or something because for some reason grooves CABGE is doing better than any other i have seen throughout several forums??? Thanks Intercept

I dont notice any difference in times while using a clean installed ide compared to a bloated sata drive. Is the ide faster for benching?

no IDE is supposed to give you higher HTT.....or SATA limits it whichever way you like to look at it

IDE possible higher HTT but slower pi times and pcmark05 scores
SATA less HTT max than IDE but faster pi times and pcmark05 scores and hdd performance
