Since i m going to wait on E6600 to arrive. For time being i purchased Pentium 915, it runs at same clock speed as Pentium 920. I am using this chip with GIGABYTE GA965p-DS3 I m not sure what is the Real different. But 915 runs really cool to me astonishing at Stocked COOLING and i have OC it to 3.4GHZ stable. Looking at the Voltage and Temp I am sure this chip have v good OC potential. But it doesnt matter anyways too late, CONROE is here

IDLE = 36c
49C = MAX 100% CPU LOAD ( 3 copies of PRIME 95)
Voltage @3.4ghz 1.08 ONLY

But here is strange thing, its based on STEPPING C1.

Isnt this new Revision which first introduced in Intel Pentium 965 Extreme Edition like 3 months ago?

Doesnt these results look amazing ?

It is built on 65nm thats why such a nice OC and temp.

I OC it to 3.92 GHZ and Amazing thing is the TEMP remains almost the same . I just increased the Voltage a little bit.

Holy sh!t; that's a nice overclock. Can you push it to 4GHz?

Here is 4.17Ghz I am gonna keep going, I wanna know the true potential of this chip over a stocked air cooling.

Nice overclock, I could only push my 840 ( 90nm Smithfield aka "very hot") just at 4Ghz. I have reach 4.1Ghz but it only booted to windows and not able to do benchmark without freezing. That's because it's 90nm, and A0 revision, meaning it doesn't overclock much. This cpu is really hot even with water cooling at this settings it hoovers around 40c! and full load of 45!. Can you believe that!?

D915 and D945 are built on the latest stepping and Intel was able to reduce the TDP from 130w to 95w on these dual cores. Intel already said that the latest stepping will be more energy efficient.

Feedback from newegg.com on the D915 confirms that this chip can run comfortably at 4.5 ghz +. It will be the new D805; especially with all these new C2D motherboards with amazing FSB OCing and nice CPU voltage phase design.

Very impressive, indeed. Wanna post some benchies?

Exactly, and it won't need 200 watts to do it. Sounds like another thorn in AMD's side. :wink:

Is this still using the stock cooler? 8O
