I had not read that one, but it's a nice look at it indeed! I had read about the manufactures being able to "fix" Intel's OC lock fairly easily in the BIOS.

The NB voltage is another angle I haven't read about! Too bad that they couldn't get this to work with the Asus' GT, as that is what I had planned on getting. If ATI's x800's don't have this problem, then I may flip my decision once again. I bet it's in the PCIE lockdown though and not nVidia or ATI's problem really.

Still...a 3.8Ghz P4550 doesn't sound that bad! But a if they got a stable 260MHz on intigrated graphics, I wouldn't mind running it like that just to have some bragging rights. Do the math! 4.4Ghz???

I'm interested in how the x800 fares as well, but I'd much rather see a cure (BIOS update) then a workaround (use a more tolerable vid card). As I said in a different post, I can't imagine they won't tackle this.

Something for you to read. It came out while you were out humping deer:

[H]ardOCP: Overclocking the 2.8GHz LGA775 Pentium 4

I'm starting to feel better about my Socket-T adventures already! They're getting their 2.8's to 3.57 pretty easily.
ABIT AA8 Motherboard:
"We had wondered before if the FSB and other board functions such at PCI/AGP/PCI-Express were being handled properly by the motherboard and locked at spec levels of operations while scaling the FSB. As of this time we are very sure this is happening as most enthusiasts would want. Seeing as we have confirmed all of what is happening with this motherboard, we are going back and giving it the "HardOCP Must Have Hardware" award."

"Once we had figured out our stability issues and firmly felt secure in our findings, it was easy to move ahead. Simply give the video card, motherboard, and Ram enough power and crank up the FSB."

"Our overclocked 3.55GHz CPU and its great amount of memory bandwidth...bests a stock clocked 3.6GHz Pentium 4 by a good margin"

It just sounds that with the heat issue aside, these things are starting to rock-n-roll! The OC'd units are running at 140F, but with water, who gives a rats ass? I've also been reading quite a bit and from the sounds of things, they are pretty tough when it comes to high vCore and temps. I can't wait to see what this 3.4Ghz 550 can do!

Hmmm...and the 2.8 (520) they tested is under $200 at newegg!

LOL, I'm going back next weekend with my ex, wonder if Bambi will be jealous?

Nice find on the article! I'll still gripe about the heat, water cooling and within specs be damned. However, you can't argue w/ the results and if it runs stable, then so be it. My next rig will be anything but an easy decision.

Man, it gets better everyday...
Toms Hardware Guide
"it is quite possible that the E0 stepping will feature some unlocked multipliers. Overclockers, keep your fingers crossed."

"it can adjust the core clock and voltage on the fly, similar to Speedstep or AMD's PowerNow"

"In Q3, Intel plans to release the Pentium 4 570 at 3.8 GHz, with the 4 GHz variants to follow well before Christmas."

"Compared to the P4 560, the EE costs 50% more and offers hardly any additional performance worth mentioning"

Should I post the entire thing, or just STFU? Ok, STFU it is...

This is not a closed thread. Someone else can say something if they want.
:shock:

YES! Another 775 owner! Glad to have ya :D I'm not totally stoked about the new form as a hole, but it's got a LOT of promise.

Yes...the cooler aspect is pretty dismal:p I've found that, with a lot of work, you could get a TDX to touch the heatspreader. The holes are either a little off from the Abit IC7 Max3 compared to the AA8, or I just had a hard time playing with it.

"The Intel LGA 775 Socket T mount for the TT CPU will be available by mid-August. The 775 mount will be available as an option when ordering a new TT CPU or it can be ordered separately."

And thermal take has some clips on their cheapo system

I posted it elsewhere...

Danger Den is now selling the Socket 775 lucite tops for the RBX's and TDX's. If you want the block (and they ARE pretty damned good), just state in your order that you need the 775 top instead of the standard 478 piece. But they're $11 if you already have a TDX or RBX unit. I'll see if I can post the block on the 775 when it shows up. They're reportedly flooded at the moment with orders. I'm sure I'm low on their list for an $11 item.
http://www.dangerden.com/

While you're there, check out that 6800 Waterblock! Neato...
I'm trying to twist their arm to make a polished top for it instead of the Lucite. Still spooky to have a slug of water dangling in there:p
