Using Microsoft Security Essentials, works 100%

Microsoft Security Essentials
Though there a many antivirus showing up, most of them are not free. People dont like to afford money on purchasing a licensed version of  antivirus, for people like those Microsoft has come up with a good antivirus to support, by keeping the minimum requirement  of a genuine windows.
For those who are having a genuine windows,this software can be installed and can be put to work.

The main thing is that its a free antivirus that keeps on getting  a very frequent updates so internet has to be there, if you don't have internet or you are facing problem while updating, you can simple cancel the update and manually install the patch file and restart the system.

Its a very good antivirus, which can scan your full harddisk and it also gets frequent critical updates which can improve chances fighting against malwar and even trojan viruses.

This freeware antivirus is supporting all OS but with an exception for win XP 64 bit only . Microsoft did not make it compatible for 64 bit version of XP, due to problem with its service packs.

Best Processor for GA - M61PME S2P ?

Review of this motherboard clear shows that its a Am2+ board, due to bios update we can manually turn it into Am3 giving it a new platform.
 If you plan to insert a new processor in that board, you really have to take care of these following problems :
1. If you install AMD AM3/ AM2+ CPU on AM2 motherboard, the system bus speed will    downgrade from HT3.0 (5200MT/s) to HT1.0 (2000 MT/s) spec; however, the frequency of AM3/ AM2+ CPU will not be impacted. 

2. Max TDP is only 95 watts 

Note : The processor must have to consume only 95 watts of power supply, so the following processors are supported :

Phenom™ X4 processor/ AMD Phenom™ X3 processor/ AMD Athlon™ X2 processor/ AMD Athlon™ processor/ AMD Sempron™ X2 processor/ AMD Sempron™ processor 

Note : Phenom II processors are not supported for this board.


Updating Bios 
In order to support AM3 processors bios has be updated, if not you will see that the system doesn't  recognize the model of processor it displays  as  AMD PROCESSOR MODEL UNKOWN. 

You can update the bios to a more recent by downloading the files from this official gigabyte site
http://www.gigabyte.com/products/product-page.aspx?pid=3262#bios 

Download the latest bios F7B and install them through QFLASH by entering  bios setup. 

4 gb DDR2 Ram vs 4 gb DDR3 Ram

Technically DDR3 ram is advance than DDR2 ram, due its core clock  and high speed, in market the prices of it are cheaper when compared to DDR2 ram

The difference come in clock speed as DDR3 runs at higher clocks and lower voltages due to a more complex 90nm manufacturing process while DDR2 heats up fast. Though in order to change DDR2 ram to DDR3 ram, one must change his motherboard  to support DDR3 ram,
its a bit costly, so its  preferable to us DDR2.

you can the difference in system rating if  you are using a DDR3 ram, it will improve the average score of system. 

Windows 7 ultimate system rating : ram : 7.1 when using DDR3 ram
Windows 7 ultimate system rating : ram : 6.9 when using DDR2 ram

So, there isn't  much difference.

Affordable AM3 Board For Phenom X6 1050t ?


Cheap and Affordable Motherboard AM3 from Gigabyte is an ideal choice for money savers and even also gamers, it model name is GIGABYTE 880GMA-UD2H, difference arises in USB sata 3, this boards comes with a USB sata 2.0.

Its really a ideal choice  to buy and affordable comes up with Rs 4,500  in  India.
Up to 16GB of DDR3 memory can be used, but only up to a maximum of 1800 MHz access speed can be used when overclocked. A PCI-E x16 slot and a second PCI-E x16 running at x4 support ATI Hybrid CrossFireX technology, allowing the use of multiple video cards for graphics support as long as those cards fit in a Micro ATX case.

GIGABYTE 880GMA-UD2H Overclocked
Overclocking greatly varies due to what hardware is being used and who is doing the overclocking. Always remember that no two pieces of hardware will perform the same, so our results will differ from what you might be able to get.
With stock BIOS settings, the AMD Phenom II X6 1090T processor runs with a 200MHz bus speed (base clock) and an x14.0 multiplier that is used to reach the final core clock of 2.8GHz when all the cores are at full load.

When manually setting the overclock on the GIGABYTE 880GMA-UD2H we were UNable to get past that 4GHz barrier. I was able to boot into Windows at 3.94GHz at 1.5Vcore, though if I tried to do any work on the CPU it would crash. The final overclock that I was happy with and was stable was 3.863GHz using a FSB of 276MHz and 1.475Vcore.

Firing up 3DMark Vantage, we can see that we improved our overall 3DMark Vantage Scores by nearly 2000 points! Much more impressive is the nearly 5000 point boost in the CPU Score! Not bad for the short time I have had this board. With cooling on the power circuitry we could probably break that 4GHz barrier!

So guys  this board is a ideal choice for TRULY Unleashing the power of Six Core CPU.

Thanks For Reading And Happy Overclocking.

How to utilize full power of multi-core processor for faster booting ?

If your system has dual core or multi-core processor, you can utilize its full processor power for a faster booting in a few simple steps.

(utilize full power of multi-core processor )

By default Windows is configured to start with single processor. Follow the simple steps below to utilize its full power. (Applicable to Windows7, Vista and XP and is identical).1. Type msconfig in the search box and press Enter (For Win7 and Vista). Start – Run and type msconfig (For Win XP).

2. From the popup window select ‘Boot’ tab and then ‘Advanced’ (Windows7). For XP, select ‘BOOT.INI’ tab and then ‘Advanced’ option.

3. This will open advanced options window. For Windows7, check the box against ‘Number of Processor’ and select 2 (or other) from the dropdown list.


For XP, check the box against /NUMPROC= and select 2 (or other) from the list. Click OK to save the settings.

 
Note:  This trick save me a few seconds on Windows startup time.

Windows 7, Xp 32 bit reads only 3.25 GB RAM ?

It is true that 32 bit OS can only read upto 3.25 GB RAM, if you are having 4 GB ram only 3.25 GB is utilized and rest is simply dumped into waste. Even this difference is found in Windows 7 32 bit,

you can simply check the system properties, we can find that only3.25(4GB) RAM is read.

Only 64 bit version  can read full memory, we can test it by installing a 64 bit OS version you can definitely find that  full 4GB RAM is noticed.


Comparing 64 bit with 32 bit , 64 bit runs definitely fast. Those who are having 8 GB or more than that we can find that a 64 bit OS is installed.

Hopefully this post can be useful for you.
