Intel Pentium Extreme Edition 955

The goal was to release a processor at 4GHz, but this turned out to be too
much. Intel has for the last year been working on setting their factories
to use 65nm technology and it has according to information we've received
already reached a productivity equal to the already refined 90nm process.

The power consumption is still something that's not completely under control among Intel's desktop processors. Simply put, the processor gets very hot, and even more so in a closed case.
This review differs from X-bit in both ocing headroom and load temp.

let's compare:

"The crux is that Intel would have been better pushing a higher-clocked dual core Pentium Extreme Edition without HyperThreading Technology at gamers. They're more likely to appreciate the extra core speed over the additional threads that really aren't required by anyone who's serious about gaming.

Intel would be better marketing this CPU towards the power user who, like me, hates waiting for one thing to finish before something else can be started. I've turned into a multi-tasking machine, and I'll often sit down and find myself doing more things than my current Athlon 64 X2 is capable of. The 955 is absolutely perfect for this."

Parallel processing is the future for CPUs, and it's telling that Intel, some seven months later, introduces another premium CPU that carries dual-core goodness with it. Ramping up the clock speed and FSB, together with a die shrink and some nifty new technologies, let's take a closer look at Intel's Pentium Extreme Edition 955.

"What we will be getting today is a little bump but nothing revolutionary.

For those of you following Intel closely these past 18 months, there has
not been all that much for enthusiasts to get terribly excited about.
Seems that Intel felt quite the same way as their last few launches have
fallen on Sundays. At least it isn't Sunday today, but it looks like
enthusiasts will still need to wait until there's really something to have
them standup and take notice."

"On the other hand, all this enthusiasm about the lower power consumption of the 65nm processor cores vanishes when we try to compare it against the competitor from AMD. Well, this is the peculiarity of the NetBurst architecture: it is not economical and there is nothing we can do about it."

"As for the thermal mode, the maximum temperature of the Pentium Extreme Edition 955 processor overclocked to 4.26GHz (under full workload) reached 79o C. "

My money goes to AMD Opty 165; I know I could have decent oc and pretty nice temp; say in the 50's C with simple air cooling.
