WTF keyboard. Kinda odd that Apple chose to go with Dual Channel DDR3 instead of Triple Channel.

This little $390 guy runs faster than my Xeon 5150 MacPro, which CPU's still cost a pretty penny.

Specs:
- Foxconn Mobo (no bells n whistles)
- 4GB DDR2 1066
- AMD Phenom II x4 3.0GHz
- 80GB hard drive

Was built to just be a render node for 3dsmax.  Went to some sites (Tom's & Andnd tech or w/e it is) and looked at benchmarks... this $125 CPU performed close if not better than some $300+ Intel CPU's.  Got everything tucked away in a nice lil NewEgg wishlist so I can build these guys faster: http://secure.newegg.com/WishList/PublicWishDetail.aspx?WishListNumber=13154125

Idles at 27-30C and at 100% load for a few hours, doesn't go over 52C.  Stock heatsink with Arctic Silver.  Also doubles as a nifty fileserver & game server.  All it needs is a videocard and it'll be ready to be a After Effects rendering node as well. 8)

I never go around to posting a pic of my computer. It's not good quality because it is a cell phone camera.
Processor:   
Pentium(R) Dual-Core CPU E5200 @ 2.50GHz (2 CPUs), ~2.5GHz
Memory:   
4096MB RAM
Hard Drive:   
489 GB
Video Card:   
NVIDIA GeForce 8800 GTX
Monitor:   
Samsung SyncMaster 932BW 3000:1 1440x900
Operating System:   
Windows 7 Professional 64-bit (6.1, Build 7600) (7600.win7_gdr.100226-1909)
Motherboard:
Foxxcon G33M01   
Computer Case:   
Inspiron 530




I really regret ever buying an OEM computer. Not being able to overclock my cpu is driving me crazy. They also gave me a motherboard that supports quad-cores but lacks the number of voltage regulators to use them.  >:(

Killaman, I think you're in the best opportunity for gaining experience. You got a OEM and it worked for you but as you expand more you realize the limitations so your transition to building one should be pretty seamless and trouble-free. OEM computers are great for simple users and people that repair them :P

BTW, did you ever try SetFSB?

Well I wouldn't have gotten a new computer if it wasn't for Dell since I didn't have a lot of money up front, you can get a payment plan for a Dell computer where you pay monthly.

And no, I have not tried setFSB. How does it work?

<3 Dell.

SetFSB taps into the clock generator on the motherboard and allows you to alter the FSB speed inside Windows. If you combine that with CrystalCPUID you can raise voltage and speeds.

I have no need to change voltage. I might give the program a try.
