Default Intel 925XE chipset and 3.46GHz Extreme Edition CPU

AMD has moved on but Intel's top-level performance has remained
largely the same, so whilst I'm a fan of all the good aspects of 925X/XE
chipsets, I find it hard to recommend it as a performance platform when
the Extreme Edition is still playing catchup, most notably in gaming.
Cast aside any company-specific favouritisms and ask yourself
objectively what you would rather have if money was not an issue - an
AMD FX-55/nForce4/DDR1 2-2-2-5 memory setup or 3.46GHz Extreme
Edition/i925XE/DDR2?

no extra power for gaming.
yeah.
so that means my assumption on a 3ghz a64 lasting till mid of next year will be quite correct

This Gallatin core CPU that houses the 3.46EE is simply hot. It runs hot and the motherboards that support it will run hot. Components on our Intel motherboard were showing surface temperatures of 150°F. While this is not as bad as some of the Prescott systems we have seen, it is certainly hotter than the AMD systems we are familiar with. If you are an enthusiast, there is simply no way we can suggest that you overclock any of the newer Pentium 4s without using some sort of watercooling. Remember that watercooling is going to greatly reduce air movement across the motherboard. So if you are watercooling, remember to place some fans in order to keep a supply of hopefully cool air moving across the motherboard’s northbridge HSF and MOSFETs.
Remark from [H]

Glad the statement supports my theory on W/C ...... for quiet computing go W/C, but remember to install some devices to increase air movement ....... hahaha ..... when the tree sounds the wind blows.

Sound = noise = opposite of QUIET.

Theory 2
When a processor is willing .... high vcore is unnecessary.

this cpu is not intended for people who want a "quiet" system

No high performance CPU is intended for Quiet System; otherwise, there will be no heatsink reviews in the last four years.

oh I don't know about that, I can see jmke still doing heatsink roundups trying to find the quitest cooling fan+sink combo at acceptable speeds

Where did you read the New P4 processor and chipset is not intended for quiet system to begin with?

You are making a statement base on your feeling and assumption rather than facts.

Intel and AMD have never planned on making ANY processor for quiet computing. The low power processors are aimed at notebook; low power = longer battery life. The by-product becomes low heat output. Never do they plan on making processor for overclocking; it is the result of improved production yield.
