Recommended Posts

Have any of you run Windows 2000 on an actual 8-core FX? If so, how is it like?

hi.

The extended kernel core support it.

You must set registry core 8 with KB979683-CoreChg.zip

@blackwingcat Why not just set it to 32 all the time? That's how Windows 2000 Datacenter Server has it defined. The OS will use only as many cores as available anyway.

Hi.

The value must be set CPU cores number.

When we set "32", I don't know any trouble occurers, so I recommend you set it yourself.

I'm going to try 8-core eventually. As I posted above in post #21 I think it may run unthrottled.

BTW, sorry for the missing pics in this thread, my AT&T ftp server went out of business.

The FX has an auto throttler from what I see, on Windows 7 it runs on high perfromance but still throttles at times. Microsoft actually said that the AMD FX should be run at full power at OS-level.

I'm gonna do this myself, on a spare HDD. Sounds like an interesting proect.
