The Pentium 4 (Netburst) architecture is a little different in the fact that it does not utilize a traditional L1 Instruction Cache, but rather a Trace Cache capable of holding 12,000 microoperations (It will display as 12K uops). There is a traditional L1 Data Cache of 16KB.
All that said, be a little more specific. If the CPU is recoginzing 16KB of L1 cache per core (Per Core), then that is normal. If it only sees one cache of 16KB, then there might be a problem.
What does it say exactly, and what are you using to determine this? Are you using CPU-Z or something like that?
rated fsb 536MHz analso when i was putting it togethier i saw that one of the pins on the mb for the cpu was incorrectly molded i wouldnt think this would be of a problem but any ideas to why the l1 cache is only saying 2x16 Kbites
The Gigabyte 965-DS3 is designed to run with processors that use a 200 or 266MHz Front Side Bus. Because Intel quad-pumps the FSB, the rated front side bus speed for the board is 800/1066MHz, depending on the processor it is used with. The Pentium D 805, on the other hand, is designed to run with a 133MHz (533MHz Quad Pumped) front side bus. To summarize:
Board: 800/1066MHz FSB; CPU: 533MHz FSB
The CPU is topping out on its limits before the motherboard. I don't know what OCs other people are getting with this board. This may not be the case, but its the best and most logical explanation I am capable of offering you.
wusy is the overclocking guy around here. Try asking him if you get a chance.
this is due to intel s inclusive cache....although cpuz is right when it give the amount of cache, it s "wrong" when you make a computation to see the l1 cache latency, as the l1 data cache is not used,the data are taken from the cache l2, as it contains these datas, this l2 cache being an inclusive one, the l1 cache data are always present in the cache l2............same way with all intel proc. , back to the time of the p2 and p3........
It's pretty much frying the VRM11.0 slowly especially when overclocking.
Now that you've mentioned it, do you have an idea on how to know what VRM a board's using (say, like an AsRock ConRoeXfire with an i945P MCH, for instance), without only stating that, if it supports Core, then...
The reason I'm guessing idontcarerealy can't reach over 3.5Ghz is either the VRM is overheating and thus vcore fluctuating badly or he bought a CNPS9500 like everyone else(THG is going to pay for that!)
Isn't CNPS9500LED one of the best coolers around? If else, what would you recommend, then?
