Default Re: Best Desktops for PTLE

^^ Hey man what firewire card did you use?

Me? Onboard Firewire is enabled but this was measured using the Mbox2. I havenīt tried the 002 with this system yet so I canīt say much about the onboard FW. It works with an external Maxtor FW drive, that much I know.

One note : there is a "power jump" at startup so these power numbers are not to be taken as real word facts. And this is a small setup, add more drives and cards and the consumption goes up fast. I have a Windmill 385W power supply unit from HEC, the voltages seem to keep steady.

I went back to standard 2000 Mhz clock for now. Just donīt feel comfortable pushing things so hard for no real reason, 25 % OC is more than Iīve ever managed to run on any system without toasting things or at least resetting bios. There`s still plenty of kick left at standard dual 2000 Mhz.

Gotta love the 7.01 with a dual core.

- i7 520 @ 3.6 GHz / P6T / XP32 / PTLE 8.01 . PT9 on Snow .
- PTLE8 on a macbook.

- And a bunch of miscellaneous obsolete hardware from the past. Like Mix ++++ 64 i/o with Control/24
