ok, what exactly is a chipset number.

i think i'm going to go with Abit IC7-G , P4 3.0 GHz, 800 MHz FSB.

the stats are intel 875 chipset.

the site is unclear what ram is most compatibe

Abit = Manufacturer
IC7-G = Motherboard Name
800Mhz FSB = Front Side Bus Speed
Intel 875 Chipset = The Chip that the Board uses
Supports up to 4GB of Single/Dual channel DIMM modules, delivering bandwidth of 4.8GB/sec= you can use DDR of any speed using single or dual channel.. 4.8Gb/s is the Memory Bandwidth.

A Little Somethng

Postby bruhthaKuga » Sun Nov 02, 2003 9:27 am

Someone mentioned cases for AMDs, One don't have to be scared about the fact that AMDs run hotter, just aware and responsive. The best cases for AMD have a fan outlet just below the power supply as this is where the CPU is usually located and is the worst location for the CPU cause the bottom of the P/S provides a corner for heat to collect. If your case doesn't have the fan outlet for the CPU you must get an AMD rated powersuply as they have a second fan on the bottom to suck away the heat. Both are fab. If you don't have an AMD rated P/S or a fan outlet but you do have an extra 80 size fan and a bit of fabricating experience you can cut out a fan outlet on the side of your case mount the fan and add a little tubing to focus the blast on the heat sink and voalla!

Nice. But you may want to get a hardcano 9 to hook that tornado to so you can throttle it down. At high and low, there's not much diff in temps.
