Default Ben's double header P2 450 MHz

Here it is... I need an NLX riser card if anyone has one. I plan to water cool this and OC it as much as possible. It will be my new web server when done. Possible even my desktop (main rig) as I have found I don't really need a powerhouse and am trying to sell my current rigs. As for video I plan to use my good old TNT 2



Wish me luck. I may be slow as I still need to find solid copper. BUT I WILL GET AROUND TO DOING THIS.

Cool? Way cool!
I thought I was cool with a PIII 550, overclocked, two video cards (one of them is a rare 3DFX Voodo 5500 dual GPU card..it even has two fans!) and two 15 giggers on a raid card...this has been my everyday computer for,...well, I put it together two weeks ago!

And I have an original IBM Desktop PC case laying around....Hmmm... watercooled?

If anyone can be of assistance I'm using CPUCool to overclock and the only choices are 548.7, 551.1, 566.5 and a lockup 682.0mhz. It's a 100 buss speed chip. What software should I be looking for?

Go, go, GO!

I added a 4th drive (80gig maxtor, 15 gig Maxtor, 2 x 15gig maxtors-RAID0).
Oh. and the 2X optical drive just wasn't cutting it so I put in a 52X...works great now.

This morning i had bit torrent rumming, 10 or so websites in Firefox, Microsoft Update in IE, IE editing a post on technet, and Paint shop Pro editing a screen capture with Kerio firewall and Avira running in the background.....With 0.64gigs of memory it paged out badly, so there is a limit!

What are you using to overclock? SoftFSB, CPUCool, Clockgen, and PowerStrip all seem to work for me. Just gotta find that PLL first. MY 550 will go 650 for a munute or so, don't know if it's the memory or the video...have to do some parts switching to find out, Hmmmm ... but I' reluctant to mess with my "everyday" machine!

I've got a RBX, a 2 x 120 rad and an Eheim.....later. Maybe a MCX158CU chipset cooler on the CPU???? I'm looking for one of those coppermine 100mhz buss, 1ghz PIII's....at a resonable price. I can't see paying $150-300 for a CPU that, most of which, have now gotten thrown in the trash. $10-25 would be reasonable for me.

I'll overclock with jumpers. Or using radiate (old program). The blocks will be home made and probobly made from an electrical box JB welded to the stock heatsink. This sounds stupid and ghetto but it works. here is a pic of one of the blocks I made for less than $5:


^And here next to my apogee.
