Overclocking beast

AMD Athlon 64 3700+ - Athlon 64 San Diego Single-Core 2.2 GHz Socket 939 Processor - ADA3700BNBOX
AMD Athlon 64 3700+ - Athlon 64 San Diego Single-Core 2.2 GHz Socket 939 Processor - ADA3700BNBOX

Pros: this thing starts at 2.2 ghz. I was told it could only reach 2.6-2.7 ghz overclocked. after a year of owning this i finally went and overclocked this. I kept on pushing it further and further and finally reached a stopping point. 3.0 ghz on air! 275 FBS X 11 Multi @ 1.6V! all at 44 degrees c under load and i ran prime95 for 6 hours to make sure!!! I wont be wasting money on any other proc.

Cons: I Didnt buy this proc sooner!!!!

Overall Review: I always purchase my parts from Newegg. Why go to a no name vendor that you dont trust for a dollar less? customer service is awesome!

Pros: Braggin rights

Cons: It didnt feel that much different then my 7800gt. Very dissapointed in the performance. 3dmark 06 only gave me 4800. thats with 2 gigs of ram and an AMD Atlon 3700+ San Diego. aquamark 03 gave me 74-77 fps, the same with a 7800 gt. After 1 week, it artifacts and crashes. must rma. what an inconvienance

Is this case for you?

Pros: Huge Case Ease of use Looks Great

Cons: No where to hide the unwanted cables.

Overall Review: I ordered this case and when this monster of a case came in i was delighted to start working on it. First off, This is my first time i've built a computer. i Dont have any other case to compare it to so i cant say that its the best. What i can say is that its a dream to work with. Everything is self explanitory and if you dont like the toll=less bays on the case then Thermaltake also gives you the option to use screws if you want to. On the front bottom of the case theres a little drawer for your screws and tools. Thanks Thermaltake for this idea. It saves me from putting all those little important screws and tools in a small baggy! One Thing i would have changed on this case was to make some storage behind the motherboard. Having the cables all around looks kinda like a mess. There is a compartment for the small cables and connectors, but nothing for the big stuff. It looks like you just have to put some more tlc into it to make it pretty in there.
