try www.nanosys1.com (http://www.nanosys1.com) , they're local for me(2 blocks away), but I believe they will ship if you call them. Another place is www.tranmicro.com. (http://www.tranmicro.com.) They're in a pricewar with nanosys, so you might get a deal

Wow, if you're going to throw down that kind of dough... grab two coppermines instead of the 512k. The new cB0 steppings are SMP compatible, right?
07-01-2000, 03:58 AM
2 coppermines? aren't the 600 already coppermines well any suggestions are good I just want to get a better computer then my current crappy one going to spend about 2,000 for equipment but also want to get a few scsi stuff so go to try and find stuff cheaper to get more

I was wondering anyone know of good place to get a good dual p3 motherboard, 2 600 133 512cache cpus,2 75 gigs hd, 18 g scsi hd, SCSI CD-RW plextor or yamaha, SCSI DVD-ROM, and 128 mg 133 memory Thanks

I agree with Dave. To buy a non-coppermine PIII 600 is like buying the hottest running, most expensive chip in it's series. The coppermine chips run so much cooler even if you don't overclock.
07-01-2000, 04:03 PM
so which models would be the coppermines then?
07-02-2000, 08:53 PM
Like Dave said above, any 256K cache chip is a Coppermine.

Just an FYI a u66 system running on raid is DA*N fast and will cost you less to build
giving you more to spend on your cdrw http://www.gotapex.com/ubb/smile.gif
scsi isn't what it used to be... well it is but it really isn't worth the cost now... my raid is as fast as i need for now... maybe you NEED faster just throwin in my two cent's at half off http://www.gotapex.com/ubb/smile.gif
07-03-2000, 08:01 PM
wait..to overclock means running at the speed faster than it actually is right? if that's the case..please tell me wat i should get in order to do that..

They have a raid device for udma 66? where can I get my hands on that?
07-04-2000, 03:51 AM
Get a Promise Ultra 66 card and mod it. Viola! You got yer self a RAID card fer ~$25, pilgrim.
hmmm... don't like the French cowboy act.
Anyways, that works. I personally haven't done it and don't know how by heart, but I am sure someone here can tell you how or tell you were to find out how. http://www.gotapex.com/ubb/smile.gif

You can try www.sagelec.com (http://www.sagelec.com)
They have received very good reviews in PC Magazine. They have an online configurator that'll let you customize your own server. The prices are pretty reasonable, considering that they build it for you and everything is under one warranty. Otherwise, for DIY, there aren't too many dual-chip motherboard options out there. And I think only the Abit dual-socket 370 supports overclocking. Most dual-chip setups are being used for critical server apps and fooling around with overclocked parts is a no-no. Tyan manufactures well known and reliable dual-chip mbs (around $150 to start). You can also get true 133MHz fsb dual-chip mbs based on Intel's I820 chipset, but I would not recommend it (assuming you can afford it -the mbs AND the Rambus memory modules are VERY expensive) because of all the problems Intel has had with this particular chipset (at least three major erratas since introduction including one major recall). Keep in mind that servers are usually based on components that have been tested out in the field for a while; this helps to assure reliability but the downside is you don't get the latest technological parts all the time.

Just to throw in my two cents, I also thought that you might want to load up on RAM, especially if you're running Windows 2000. They say that W2K likes at least 256, and if you're going to be running two fast processors, it might make sense to get even more, especially if you're going to be spending that much money.

Thanks everyone. This should help me out.

I would also suggest that you make sure that your RAM is CAS-2
When I become King of the World, I will do away with TCP/IP and install a global network of talk pipes. There will also be jeffries tubes in which ferrets will run message envelopes.
Hey about the dual processor....overstock.com have them for 89 dollar....I dont know if it is a good board but I am sure some one know about it.... It is the Tyan 1832DL
Umm....it said it is a dual processor...the only reason I would want a dual processor is if i am a server.. Other than that I dont think any home software and "games" support dual CPUs.
Here is the link:

I am not sure if this this the case anymore, but I think you have to run NT, 2000, or some Unix variant to make use of the two processors. That might not be true anymore, but it is what I have heard. Can anymore verify this?
07-05-2000, 10:24 PM
Bubba, you are correct sir. Although I think they tried to add it to Win98SE.
07-06-2000, 01:32 AM
Win98SE does support dual processors, just not very well. Just think of it as 1.25 processor... Hahaha... Also, it won't support RAID AND dual at the same time. Damn Microsoft...
