I was told that my "1.6a" is actually a "willy".So why does the max. clock speed show up as 2400 on programs like asus probe-----and if it is a "willy", what are the max. o/cing figures to run (safely?) at??? thx.
First and foremost, get WCPUID. You can then determine whether it has 512K L2 cache or 256K L2. The former is the Northwood, latter is a Willy. Wilamettes OC horribly compared to NWs, and no 1.6A can get to 2.4 and be called a Willy, unless on Watercooling to extreme.
Whoever says it is a Willy, is a misinformed FUD spewer.
:smile: Intel and AMD sitting under a tree, P-R-O-C-E-S-S-I-N-G! :smile:
Went to root of cpu... took off hsf..and wallah!!!!there on the cpu it reads:1.6ghz/256/400/1.75v along with:SL5UJ MALAY. I guess that answers most of my ????. But I've heard that good cpu's are coming out of Malaysia---is this why my "willy" didn't cave @1.984ghz??!
Wait a minute: the box said 1.6a? Are you telling that the official retail boxed P4 1.6a i snot always telling the truth?
I don't you what do you think guys, but a lot of people can be ripped for the Intel's profit! Because the shop pay as a 1.6a, not as a 1.6. Here the company that is doing extra money is Intel. This s*cks!
Interesting point. Did Toestar do the install? or did the store "take it out the back" and do it? Maybe it was an Intel error, or maybe the store just got caught ripping off a customer... Either way, at least it's getting sorted out.
