    The numbers!! At 3809 mhz that 2.8C gets a dhrystone processor score of 10794.
    My processor @ 3710 mhz my 2.4C gets a dhrystone processor score of 11415

    The 2.8C system is running it's mem at 1:1 for a DDR of 544, it's mem score is 6349
    My mem is running on the 5:4 divider for a DDR of 455 and my mem score is 6624.

    I think I am pretty happy with my clocks and scores.

    Well, I did better than I was expecting. I got 5300 marks exactly but the ORB wouldnt take it b/c it was a 1.0.0 results. So I upgraded to the 1.1 patch and lost 6 points :(
    down to 5294 http://service.futuremark.com/compare?3dm05=63669

    What do you do for benchmarking though.

    I leave everything open as if I was normally running my PC

    Thats 12 things in the start menu, totalling a little over 207MB of memory usage. But we can play. :D

    ****edit****

    boots 4ghz fine, but damn thermal throttling kicks in slowing down the CPU. Once my new HSF comes in I'll post up a smoker :p

    Pretty funny actually, I lost exactly 6 points myself....as did a few other ppl I've been in touch with since the patch was released. :p

    eViL_M@LuM, thermal throttling kicks in @ 70c, wtf cooling do you have now? I say the cpu seems to be slowing down because of PCI/AGP locks, as did my system above 300MHz FSB, set the AGP/PCI to 67/34, if it doesnt quicken up then, idk whats going on

    it's a 2.8E not a 2.4C :p


    No it's crappy cooling, the sink on there now is a salvaged Volcano hell cant remember which model right now.

    I just had a thought

    my mobo wouldnt POST, but it would turn on. I had it @ 300MHz FSB with stock NB cooling @ 2.8v memory, could that have killed the NB?

    what kind of performance (game- and bench-wise) are you guys getting with these overclocks? I was thinking of either getting a P4 (2.4C) or an Athlon XP-M (2600+) and OCing the crap outta them with my watercooling...any ideas?

    I myself haven't heard of anyone "blowing out" their NB, but hey, ya never know...that would suck if you did...
