Re: TDP list for Intel chipsets

Will it work -- AM3 CPU on AM2 board (690G)?

Hi everyone at SPCR! )

It happed so that I own now an old 690G board (ECS 690G), and I want to get it work.

But, the question is -- what the most modern CPU I can use on it?

Will these work?
1) AMD Sempron 140 (2700 MHz), AM3
2) AMD Athlon II X2 Dual-Core 240 (2800 MHz), AM3

Thanks in advance!

Re: Question about improving AC/DC efficiency

Once PSU reach a threshold of say 95% AC-DC do they still need to be fan cooled ? It depends on the withdrawing power (how much you are taking from PSU). E.g. big interregional transformers (ore ones at hydropower plants) supplying hundred kilovolts lines have the efficiency of 99-99,5%, but that 1...

Re: Does Sapphire 5670 realy idle to ~8W, like 4670?

My system with 5670 is AC 50W idle, and w/o 5670 is AC 36W. Thus the presence of this card makes consumption to be 14W higher. Measured with euro-Kill-a-Watt.

Go on! ) Air blow from the outside should be slightly warm, then it's OK. Make sure the fan starts firmly on low voltage. If it doesn't -- you take risk )

Through the pen-trick only :(

But you can't put 0.9 as low and 1V as high -- too little to work on 775 Mhz! The frequency cut should follow :(
