Windows 7: 2 Years Late coming to the party...


02 Sep 2010   #1

Windows® 7 Ultimate x64 SP1
 
 
2 Years Late coming to the party...

This is all old hat for most everyone here, but for me this is brand new!
What happened was my powersupply started putting out abnormal voltages & Killed my Badaxe II mobo so I got an ASUS P5Q Pro Turbo. If you haven't noticed, this older Core 2 Duo/ DDR2 Tech choices in mobo selection is becoming very limited since the i Core series have come out.
Anyways to make a long story as short as possible...
After I got the new mobo I got an email from CoolerMaster informing me I was 1 of the 10 Grand Prize Winners in the Summer Giant Giveaway Contest!
So I won a new 800w Silent Pro Gold PSU (perfect timing) & V6GT cooler!
Seemed like a shame not to add in a Core 2 Duo E8400 to the system's upgrade since they cost so little now so I did that too along with a new 4GB kit of G.Skill DDR2-1066 RAM.
Btw, they stopped making the C0 & C1 revisions for the E8400 so all they sell now is the E0 revision!

Overclock is exactly as you'd expect for the system...
4.0GHz & 1780 FSB. CPU-Z Validator 3.1

Even though this is old now, its still a good gaming system!
Also, the V6GT CPU cooler was so big that I had to cut a hole in the side panel for it to stick through as it wouldn't fit with the panel on otherwise! LOL
The E8400 never gets above 108F/42c at full load & idles a couple of degrees above ambient (75F/24c) room temps!
Overkill cooling for this CPU & fantastic considering I got it for FREE! hehe!
End of story...
