This pertains more to the processor than the mb, I realize this isn't the mb forum. Anyway, I currently have a 2.4c and noticed the 3.4c is out. Does anyone know how far they will take this line of piv 800fsb processors (e.g. 3.6c etc)? Also, how OCable is the 3.4c w/stock air cooling (does it run really hot)? I have my 2.4c @ 2.9 and am wondering whether it'd be worth upgrading down the road. I've mostly been lurking around the gfx cards forums, so my pIV knowledge is a little dated. Thanks
PIV 2.4c @ 2.89ghz
1gig PC3200 (512mbx2)
GF3 Ti200 64mb (soon to be replaced)
3.4C is the end of the Northwood. 2.4C should do around 3.2GHz. 2.6C should do around 3.2GHz. 2.8C and up are a better stepping, so that the 2.8C should do 3.4-3.5GHz on GOOD air cooling. And now you're getting close to the limit for the Northwood core on air...3.4C might go 3.6GHz on GOOD air cooling.
