3.55Ghz with air & 1.55v is very good indeed, i'm not complaining about the overclocking capability of the chip. I'm complaining that even at 3.55ghz it isn't faster than my xp1800+@ a lousy 2ghz.

I'll try dual channel before i replace the motherboard, but i don't know which one i should replace it with.

200$ for a p4c800 is way more than i want to spend on a motherboard. 150$ max:

- abit is7: 125$
- abit ic7: 150$
- asus p4p800: 125$
- MSI 865PE: 115$
- MSI 875P: 166$
- Gigabyte 875P: 145$

The gigabyte is the cheapest 875P mobo and has 6 instead of 4 memory slots. I was happy with my gigabyte 845PE motherboard, but asus / abit or even msi are probably better for overclocking.

Does anyone know whether the GIGABYTE GA-8IK1100 has any trouble running at 275FSB? I'm not planning to push my 2.6C much higher, because i will need phase change cooling or +1.55v for that.

Are any of the above motherboard a definite yes/no? I need S-ATA (no raid), 5.1 sound and 10/100 Lan. I don't need CSA GBit lan, integrated s-ata raid, firewire, ...

try other benchmarkes besides 3dmark, dont fix on 1 item
try different ones.. might just be the software

I know for fact that a P4 @ 3ghz IS faster to work with then an AMD @ 2ghz

Same results with other benchmark apps.

-edit-
I don't want to bash intel, i just want to know what's wrong. We've already established it's too low.

fsb: 273mhz
mp: 13 (=> 3550mhz)
mem div: 4/5
mem: 218mhz
mem timings: 2.5-3-3-6
AGP: 8x
Catalyst: 3.5 i think
R9800: 425/375
Dx: 9
Latest intel chipset drivers

is it a clean install, or did you change mobo/cpu and kept the OS install?

the fact is that sth is terribly wrong, cuz I have the exact same comparison with a 2ghz (10*200) xp and my gamerig (3.6), same amount of ram, and the difference is catastrophic for the xp.

The new frequency was well applied, but some versions of Windows do not detect the change, that causes some detection and benchmarks program to mistake.
