4.2 is SuperPi-sisoft stable,...

4278 isn't.
only my ram can't get that high, so no good benchmarks.
ram was on 5:4.

PC4400 could get to 285 using relaxed timings and high voltage

ok, maybe, but I'm not going buy other ram.
on my P4C800 this ram did 278mhz superPI 1:1 and now it isn't possible on the Abit.
not even 270 is stable.

have a look at this :



lazyman, I'm feeling old, you forgot that one

the PIV Northwood hasn't even run one day on 3.0Ghz, same for the R9800Pro.
the X800Pro will have the same treatment, I'm a veteran

so that means : no improvement on 3d... coz probably at 4.2 , even with 1:1 ram it'd be slower then the 4.0 ghz northy

my northy will go on another halfyear

Gamer,
Excellent numbers, nevertheless. I found the Prescott does better in DVD copy than Northy; otherwise, I don't "FEEL" the "SPEED". It's not like driving a V10 Viper versus a tweaked Camero with Vette engine. The V10 pushes you back starting at 1500 rpm all the way to 5,000.

It shows the Prescott can be Oc'ed better than Northy. I could push mine to 3.7Ghz but the mother is HOOOOT, yet stable. For everyday use, I leave it at 3.5. :^)

Should do a review on "Having fun with Prescott".

I was thinking about buying one of those cheap 2.4Ghz Prescotts, they overclock like mad and cost only 128 euro. Then again, for less than 40 euro more one can buy a A64 2800+, which is faster and produces way less heat. Hard choice, but i guess the prescott would be more fun.
