Quad Core Project
Finally got the parts for my quad core pc project, the case looks nice and installation on it was very easy.
Had a problem with the motherboard and the power supply not having enough of those molex thingies.
Gonna post some pics and screenshots on the site, however without further tweaking and just a basic install of windows xp pro sp2, Intel's Quad Core rocks! Coming from a 2.8 ghz Pentium 4 this is so awesome, played Half-life 2 without any glitch or skips.
Been using it for 3 days now, this baby is fast like lightning compared to my old pc Pretty stable to, only time it crashed was when I tried Playstation emulation and I guess the CDR plugin crashed the system.
Amazingly, after so many years I can now emulate the sony playstation at full speed!!! lol I almost cried when I played Tekken 3 and the whole video was playing like it was in fast forward.
Tried to rip some Jackie Chan dvd, took the program about 7mins! Freakin awesome!!!
The temps on my cpu according to abit's uguru program is about 40 degree celsius on idle, goes up to 50 i guess on full load.
