CPU's are a little tough too find, if anyone has cpu's to sell pls advise me, i need a minimum of athlon XP 1800+. That i s what i use in my rig but my son has a similar setup with a crappy cpu. BTW good luck OC'ing and thanks in advance. PS...how does a person get there system specs to show on every thread?
Sorry man but i will be keeping my old one, so i can eventually use in a second system, but if i ever change my mind i will let you know. I'm sure there are plenty of ppl looking to sell CPU's in that range though.

Anyway so could someone tell me if CCBWE is a good/bad stepping for a 939 x2 4800??

I wouldn't know right off and here's a decent place to ask:

I can get 2.66GHz out of my 4400+ can do 2.75GHz but it's not 100% stable it's 3D Mark stable but thats about it.

Well im doing okay with it actually, after checking up the stepping it's meant to be good, but now it's heat thats holding me back from going any further than 2.5GHz! 30C idle / 53C load @ only 1GHz from stock!? Why such a nice idle temp with a huge jump to mid fifties load!? I want to OC more but i can't

You might need to reseat your hsf with a jump in temp like that. Mine (4400) rarely goes above 34c @10x250, just a hair above stock voltage. Make sure your not using too much t.i.m. It will act as an insulator, keep your proc hot.

Edit: What kind of cooling are you using?

Hi. Em im reluctant to say it's bad seating of the hsf cause i was having pretty much similar temp jumps when i had it seated on my 3700, surely i couldnt go wrong twice?? Dont know though.. Idling 23C now.... 52 load....

This time i used Arctic Silver 5, i am actually worried i may have put too much on.. My hsf is a Zalman 7000B AlCu. I also have an AC Freezer 64 pro lying around, never used it...

I think i might just buy a Zalman 9700 for a riduclous price cause im fed up of this...

It could be bad seating. I have never seen a temperature jump like that with any cpu I had. Granted I haven't used the 4800+

Go here http://www.arcticsilver.com/ins_route_step2amdas5.html
and read how much AS5 you actually apply to the cpu. It is so little that a normal tube could probably do at least 100 cpu's. If you apply more the AS5 becomes an insulator. If you gooped it on and smeared it over the cpu that could explain the huge jumps in temperatures.

Yeah i used that guide. I put only a small bit more than the example there. Anyway i have decided to get a Tuniq Tower 120 cause that will solve all these temp problems once and for all It's a monster and thats just what i need!
