doesn't chipcon make those already?
Comment from jmke @ 2004/01/03
if you got the $$$ you can ask them to ship one to you
Comment from jmke @ 2004/01/03
MajorSlaughter & MickeyMouse @ Xtremesystems can help you with the mounting I think! They have a lot of experience in that area.

would be interesting to see what a "cheapo" system can do in a Prommy

Only tweakers / pc-enthousias who upgrade every 6 months should wait imho. I have no problem recommending this setup to some-one who wants a fast and affordable pc. Most ppl upgrade after 4 years, not 4 months.

Price is reasonable, but then I would have to buy new memory and a heatsink I guess.
Should my memory be sufficient? It's twinmos pc3200 that does 223mhz cl2 3 2 11 @2.9V. It mayb can go higher, but my motherboard didn't allowed it back then. (NF7 Rev.2)

At best (presuming that cache is the only difference between Newcastle and FX), AMD is offering two sockets and two mobo types. If AMD somehow cripples a socket 939 Newcastle, you'd end up with two sockets and three mobo types.

The first is acceptable, the second isn't.

Wow... finally a A64 i can get onboard with.
Comment from jmke @ 2003/12/27
even at default speeds it is a kick-*** machine
Comment from calantak @ 2003/12/27
if that'd be stable, that would be one helluva setup for not a lot of money, IF you don't take the 1000+ euro prommy2 in the equation... with the prom, it's damn pricey anywayz...
