Extreme AMD Athlon XP overclocking


Now that Intel and AMD are pushing their next generation products onto the market, we see a performance gap between older generation CPU's and the new breed. We try to give the Athlon XP an eXtreme performance boost so it can keep up!

if we see skyhigh OC's on mach2's with socket 939 athy's or with those 775 prescotts, I'd be têmpted to buy one bad prommy again :)

I'm waiting for that right now. As for the prom, well i wanted to have the phase change experience and i had a real nice second hand deal so i whas tempted to buy it:^D A64 is a real dream for gamers/overclocers like me. Preformance and cheap! I'm sticking to my xp for now. My new R9800 gives me a nice boost in games so i can wait a while. Benchmarking like 3dmark.. well i'm not interessted in it at the moment. We are all charing the a64 fever:super:
