I saw this ebay add for a Pentium D 915 that is supposed to go 4.5Ghz and asked what cooler and motherboard he used for 4.5Ghz. Here is the link and his cut/paste responce to me.
Here is his add:

http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=1900...

When asked about hardware this was his responce to me.

Thank you for the interest. This processor was clocked at 4.5GHz and was stable. The cooling device was the standard heatsink/fan that comes with it. There are more factors than just motherboard and cooling that will take it this speed. The RAM must be able to keep up as well. We are very serious about this.


AAAHAHAHAHAH 4.5Ghz on stock...hehe 4.5 Ghz on stock cooler...YEA RIGHT!!! I will responde back to him with a link to this thread so make sure we all let him know what we think about that possibility.
August 30, 2006 2:24:10 PM

I replied with a link to this thread and suggested he monitor it for the next couple days to see what people think.
August 30, 2006 2:27:58 PM

You could probably hit 4GHz on the stock cooler with AS5, and it would probably be Prime-stable. But you'll need a miracle to hit 4.5GHz on stock cooling. I know that a couple people on the forumz have D915/920s running at 4+Ghz on air, but not on stock cooling.

Also, I wouldn't buy a CPU that's been overclocked to 4GHz.
August 30, 2006 2:29:54 PM

Maybe stock cooling in a case with 6 120mm fans for someone who lives in northern canada.

I dont think it would be stable at 3.5 on stock unless as stated you were in a very cool room to begin with

ROFLMFAO!!!!

"Brand NEW Sealed Retail box w/Heatsink and Fan!"

Then if you look at the picture closely, you can see the piece of scotch tape holing the box closed.

Piece of $*&%^ scammer, get a life.
August 30, 2006 2:52:46 PM

If he know that this processor run in 4.5GHz, why he still saying it's a brand new processor ?

Stock HSF for 4.5GHz ? damn...i think he is living in North pole or south pole or his room is filled with liquid nitrogen. :lol:  :lol:  :lol:  :lol:  :lol: 
August 30, 2006 2:55:35 PM

I'm laughing soooo hard at the scotch tape on the box.
Poor idiot bought his 905.
Mebe had it overclocked to 4.5
It's a miracle if he had it on stock but if so I wouldn't buy it for $30.
He's probably selling his old or more likely recently bought PentD bc he wants a conroe and realized he bought the wrong thing.
Hopefully he gets a conscience and or feels even dumber for trying to dupe people/being OC ignorant.
August 30, 2006 2:57:21 PM

BTW: hes in West Palm Beach, Florida, United States

I think that is infact the security seal tape from the manufacturer. Not scotch tape. Even Newegg has same stock photo. He probably got the photo from newegg.

Im waiting for wussy to reply hes always got the scoop on it.
August 30, 2006 3:24:48 PM

Another thing that's suspect, he goes on and on about his amazing feedback, yet his ID is "safersellers" with a feedback rating of 2, yet he links in his advert to the ID "saferseller" who has a much larger feedback rating.

That's got to be against eBay rules as he's clearly lying and trying to deceive people.

Edit: Plus he goes on about being this big Titanium Power Seller etc.

I've reported him to eBay as he's obviously taking the piss with this.
August 30, 2006 3:35:57 PM

Well if his 915's are good, I will assume they are, He sold his last one for $102 + shipping. I cant fault the guy for that. I'd buy one for that much. I may buy one anyways.

I also sent "safeseller a message to find out if they are in fact the same person. If they are then kewl I will buy one maybe. but if hes not the same person, just riding omn his reputation then the jig is up myfriend.

Thank you for doing what you can to help clean up eBay. My college roommate and I got scammed on a DVD box set which said it was "authentic". Of course some how or another Paypal/eBay wound up doing nothing about it even though we sent them several of the "authentic" DVDs which simply would not play on anything. Several more of the discs would only play on my Plextor and not on my laptop or my roommate's Lite-On DVD+/-RW. Also, the discs were single rather than dual layer (so the quality was pretty bad) and there was oriental writing all over the discs. It would have been a good deal had the discs been authentic, but for not too much more I could have gotten the box set from a reputable dealer and saved some money and hastle.

Ebay is trying to clean up its reputation. In the meantime they raised there service fees and alienated a bunch of there sellers. I rarely find good deals there anymore. Often people are bidding items up to what I could get them for new from a reputable dealer.
August 30, 2006 5:59:08 PM

Yea, eBay just isn't what it once was. I rarely find a good deal on there anymore. You can still find lots of fair deals, but nothing like it used to be.

I don't like selling on there anymore because the fees are so friggin high. I'd rather to sell it to someone local and get to keep 100% of what I make. I wouldn't mind paying up to MAYBE 5% (including PayPal fees). But when you factor in listing fees, final value fees, then PayPal fees you're often paying about 10% commission to eBay.

On topic though, there's no way this thing goes to 4.5Ghz on stock cooling.
Too many stupid scammers on eBay these days. It's a real shame.

Man, you guys or, actually some of you guys, are bashers! I'm the seller and we cancelled it because of all the questions on weather it was real, sealed or scotch taped, and weather we actually tested it.... Bottom line; this baby is new, sealed, and does NOT have any scotch tape on it! We have a few in stock, and will actually deliver this as stated! Now, for the over clocking.... It's common knowledge that this chip has excellent Over clocking Ability, and rumor has it that you can over clock Intel 915's to over 4 GHz! Of course, this is not tested or recommended by us, as it will void your warranty.... but, for the daring it could be a lot of fun to try! I actually have this exact chip in my machine as I write this and it is running VERY cool and faster than it should. We have ended the 1st auction and corrected the text in the new one, and if the winner has an account here I will ship it for free at the winning bid! I'm a straight up guy and this offer is real! Here is the new auction: http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=190026306360

Go for it!
August 30, 2006 6:54:35 PM

He relisted it.
Now it says

Hi,
I am a student and I like that CPU. I have no money to buy it, so this is an excellent oportunity for people like me. I will create an account on eBay and i will offer the most and get that nice CPU for free.
Dude, are you sure?
August 30, 2006 7:11:13 PM

Thank You for reposting/fixing your auction.

Yes you can to 4.0 ghz.
My friend had his D805 to 4 ghz( Well 3.8 ). *edit* 8 ) = 8) lol.
However he used watercooling.
Not on air tho.
That was what had us steemed.
I suppose that might be stock seal but it looks soooo much like scotch tape.
I wonder if the new picture on Newegg etc could be scotch taped and just never noticed heh.

Still wonder about the saferseller vrs safersellers thing though...
August 30, 2006 7:11:29 PM

I kinda feel bad about opening that can of whuparse. But when a crew of L337 clockers like this sees a claim like that.. well you know its going to stir up the hornets nest real fast. As for myself I figured your product was legit. But thruth in advertising will get checkity checked. I may still bid on it.

So are you infact the same person as safeseller without the S that your feedback link points too. Cause he has the same claim/add and we might have to check his butt too...hehe

Im pretty sure he meant free shipping. Not free CPU.
August 30, 2006 7:24:30 PM

Im going to make my final thoughts:

This guy appears to in fact be safeseller and safesellers as both ads have been changed. and seller, you dont need to make wild claims to sell CPU's. You should know this already.

And to what your thinking...yes your right ...we dont have anything better to do...hehe
August 30, 2006 7:32:27 PM

Dude, Netburst is crap. Do you have Core2?
I really need some. If you have, please PM a price list to me.
August 30, 2006 7:39:43 PM

I forgot how much fun these forums are! I was not thinking that! Anyway, we really don't try to make wild claims - we do try to put the best light on an item we are selling... and, you are absolutely right, I can't personally attest to 4.5 but many have gotten high 3's! And, it's a great chip even at 2.8 - I really love that dual core - I run 3 monitors, and 6-12 instances of IE, Outlook, and various programs all at the same time with a gig of RAM and I have never had such snappy performance. I really, truly would recommend this chip to anyone! Oh, here is a close up of the tape on the side: Close up of tape or seal http://www.saferseller.com/images/915+1.jpg

I think he means "Ship it for Free" as in Free Shipping. You still have to pay for it.

Caveat emptor.
August 30, 2006 10:51:24 PM

You could easily get the Chip to run at 4.5ghz on stock. Heck, you could probably reach 6+ghz and it would still be stable.

If you disable the cache and make it totally useless :p

Snap! I guess he could change his add now to Guaranteed 6ghz! with some 3pt font that states **cache must be disbled :lol: 

And free addspace for Ebay, well it isnt worth the binary its printed with.

Don't get too carried away! Netburst is still a relatively lousy architecture and a 2.8GHz Pentium D is fairly lame at gaming and whatnot compared to Core/A64. True if you overclock it to 3.8GHz or something then it's gaming performance and whatnot becomes a lot more respectable, and price/performance wise (when overclocked) it's a decent buy, but at stock speed it's maybe average at best compared to what else is around.
August 31, 2006 10:12:41 AM

well I am willing to bet everyone on this forum would agree with me on this. Scamming people on computer hardware dont make you look good. Claiming oh this chip can go up to 4.5ghz. What going to happen is your going to have tons of Pissed off people. When a conroe core 2 6600 beats it and to boot core 2 will be alot cooler running.

So act like a adult and stop scamming people.
August 31, 2006 11:06:20 AM

You do know that making false claims about your product is called FALSE ADVERTISEMENT, don't you? :roll: :evil:

Unless that guys lives in Antartica, then yeah you can use the stock cooling to oc a 915 to 4.5Ghz. If not then that guy is full of crap and don't buy from him, ever.

As i have said before, he wasn't lying. It is entirely possible to overclock a 915 from stock to 4.5+ relativly easily on stock cooling.

You will just have to disable the caches, therefore rendering the chip almost useless.

Points and laughs.
I'd hope so for 3x price or more for chip alone.
Then 2x the mobo price most likely =P

Um, yea, you can get an 805 to 4+Ghz, because it's got a low FSB to begin with. The 915 on the other hand.....can easily go to 5Ghz on air and up to 7 with liquid cooling. Yep, that's right, you heard it here first. You ever notice how the pentium D's are mostly even numbered, with a few odd numbered ones? Well, the odd numbered ones actually have completely different cores, they're actually Core 1.5 Duos. That's why they overclock so high. And of course you can get a 915 up to 4.5 using the stock cooler, anyone who says otherwise needs to pull their head out of their sphincter. Why you might ask? Because the stock cooler that comes with a 915 is a cascade cooler able to dissipate 75KW of heat! Or make 4 tons of ice per hour. I know, I work for intel, I'm the vice-president of consumer relations... Hope this has been informative for you. If you have a second please bid on my e-bay items, I'm selling a shoebox full of pixie dust, an Apexi S-AFC II freshly ripped from the dash of a honda civic, and some severely used ladies undergarments, size 3XL. Happy bidding!

August 31, 2006 1:46:43 PM

It all makes sense all of a sudden!

Unfortunately, I have no plans to upgrade as my Athlon X2 is overclocked to 13.4GHz with the thanks of my personal nuclear USB key which I have plugged in along with my new "Absolute Zero" CPU cooler.
