While the first THG video controversially demonstrated the overload problems with the AMD AthlonXP/MP and caused a storm in the industry, the second video was a short and snappy guide to unleashing the almost unfettered overclocking potential of every AthlonXP/MP. The third video dealt with installing powerful water-cooling in a PC housing. Only first-rate components were used that represented a good investment for years to come. Video number four showcased Intel's IDF 2002 while number five came to grips with the P4's HyperThreading. For it, we pitted a P4 with 3.6 GHz (without HT) against a P4 3.06 GHz with HT.
The sixth video introduced a 4.1 GHz system and proved its potential. At the time it was one of the world's fastest PC systems. Video 7 showed the highlights of IDF 2003. Video 8 handled the set-up and assembly of a compressor cooling system for extreme overclocking while maintaining stable operation. Temperatures of -52°C on the CPU head can be achieved. Another film (No. 9) dealt with highlights of IDF 2003 - details on the Pentium 4 with Prescott core. The tenth video focused on the Athlon64/64FX: How fast is the CPU against its rival from Intel? Is there any movement on the overload problem?

The small file size and data rate of the Tom's Hardware video means you will need a relatively fast processor. It is also important that you have the DivX codec version 5.1.1 installed on your computer. Download the latest free codec from DivX.com.
This codec enables you to view the video. Because the audio signal is compressed in MP3 format and this codec is already included in most versions of Windows, you don't need any special driver.
