    resently some where in the forum i came to a post which says P-4 Prescott 3.6 overclocked to 6 gz .........so i am confused that if it can be overclocked to this extect they why Intel is stuck to 3.x mark ..why donn they overclock it to 4 or 4.5 (coz normal pple donn hav Liquid cooling)by default and launch it......

    thus not only they can earn more revenues by putting old wine in new Bottle..but can put AMD way back in the race........... :?:

    Dude....
    If you overclock your PC to that extent you will nedd liquid nitrogen to keep your PC cool... And it reduces the life of the processor.. and it's costly too...

    control urself guys .. relax a bit
    saROman .. the question of overclockin a 3.XX to 6 ghz is quite bizarre
    yeah u will need something like liquid nitrogen coolin for ur processor for sure
    a project to overclock a 3.4 GHz maxed out at 3.8 Ghz the aim being 4ghz ..
    this too with water cooling
    the processors are made to survive those particular clock speeds
    so it doesnt come factory overclocked and ofcourse thats unsafe for ur processor should anything go wrong
    yes it reduces the life of ur processor ..

    apart from the most important point above ...normal ppl dont have water cooling ... and thats y intel doesnt overclock the processors ....
    let alone to 4-4.5 ... which isnt even possible in normal circumstances
    u wanna overclock without water cooling ?
    clock a 3.4 ghz to a max of 3.5 ghz
    thats where ull top off
    i hope this is more clear to u now !

    Hey this is copyright infringement!!! ;)

    And BTW overclocking will increase the cost of the sys (cooling et al) and reduce the life of the procy, as has already been pointed out. And speaking about AMD well as far as I know AMD64's can't be overclocked a lot, or perhaps even a little. It's the XP's that r overclocker's langotiya yaars ;). Some1 plz correct me if I'm wrong.

    If i'm not wrong with adding cost of Liquid Nitrogen Cooling ..we can get atleast 50 Intel 3.2 processors....Try telling Intel to sell CPU at that cost...!!!! :p

    dude...first of all if you did go thru that thread these guys did as a pure enthusiasts way. Second processor speeds have become irrelevant which the AMD CPU's have proven esp in the past 6 months. The newer FX cores beats any Intel in terms of performance benchmarks. Intel dropped the idea of the 4ghz CPU as there were huge heat concerns. Now they are conc on CPU's with dual cores and 64 bit chips. I think gone are the days when we see speeds being an issue.

    I think the image is photoshopped. BESIDES ITS NOT TECHINCALLY POSSIBLE ot overclock any present generation desktop processor to 6 ghz.

    Please read the link provided in the post. These guys are extreme OCers and are quite well known and acknowledged too. Also there is an article about them and their 6ghz OCing in the Inquirer.net so check it b4 u say something like this.
