Crew Turrican Posted March 18, 2007 Crew Share Posted March 18, 2007 Hi I've tested a few socket 7 cpus under my vapo ls. Since there's no socket7-kit available, i decided to build my own one. Here are some pics: I used a Epox EP-MVP3G5 socket 7 board for my tests. First insulation layer: Second insulation layer (here's already a P 233MMX installed): Third insulation layer: Fourth (last) insulation layer: I also installed the heatpad on the back of the board, to avoid possible condensation: For fixing the evaporator on the board i was using 2 "fastening clamps" (i hope thats the right word in english ): Here, i was installing Heavy Metal Fakk2. It ran pretty good on the K6-3 @ 567Mhz. If you look into my hwbot result you guys wil notice that i use mainly "old" hardware to get points. But i oced every socket 7 cpus to the max, so i think the results aren't that bad. It took me several hours of testing , because first i often got condensation problems. It's also very hard, to get a good contact between the Evap and the CPU, because of the "uncommon Evap mounting" :lol: the used hardware: Epox EP-MVP3G5 (2MB L2(3)-Cache) 2 x 128MB PC133 @ 2-2-2-5 Geforce 4 Ti 4600 AMD CPUs: AMD K6 266 0.25Ã‚Âµ @ 450mhz @ 2.5V AMD K6-2 500 0.25Ã‚Âµ @ 619mhz @ 2.8V AMD K6-3 450 0.25Ã‚Âµ @ 567mhz @ 2.8V Intel CPUs: Intel Pentium 200 0.35Ã‚Âµ @ 250mhz @ 3.3V Intel Pentium MMX 233 0.35Ã‚Âµ @ 334mhz @ 3.3V these are the 24/7 stable results. for the benches just look at the results in my hwbot-profile. of course the cpu-z max. was a little bit higher, as the 24/7 results. If anyone has questions, just ask. best regards, Turrican Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
