    Just purchased a Albatron PX865PE ProII board and Pentium 4 2.4c. What a sweet board. It's got the lot - RAID (both SATA and IDE up to 6 drives), gigabit LAN, 24 bit (7.1 surround including digital out (both analog and optical), dual bios, USB2 (x8) Firewire - Feature wise there isn't much more you could want on a board.

    But how does it perform? Well straight out of the box, i was able to bump up the FSB from the standard 800FSB to 1000FSB at the standard voltage - instant P4 3.0 ghz !! And I ran Prime 95 for 12 hours - this thing didn't miss a beat. And all on the stock Intel heatsink. Temps - Idle around 32c-34c and Load 38c-42c.

    And the box advertises a FSB of 1200!! That turns my humple 2.4c into a Pentium 4 3.6ghz. Can't wait till the water cooling turns up...!!

    Sounds great!! Keep us posted on how you do. What graphics card are you going to run?

    I am running a ATI Raeon 9700 Pro. Got it jsut before the Albatron. I like it, but haven't had played with the settings much. It generates a fair bit of heat into the case. Currently the case temp is 25c and the CPU is 30c (o/c @3.0ghz and standard fan). I think the 9700 is adding about 5c to the case...

    You just need to keep the air flowing through the case. That seems a little steep, I doupt the video card is increasing the case temp that much since it's only barely above room temp (unless you live in an igloo;) ) . In any case (no pun intended) you're temperatures seem pretty cool.

    Let's see some benchmarks. :D

    I've heard good things about the OC'ability of the P4"C" chips - I haven't had a chance to play with mine just yet - hopefully on the weekend I will
    ....no water cooling here though, just a volcanoe7+

    - I'm also interested to see what the Radeon 9600 Pro will Oc to - there's a bit of hype surrounding them as well:D :D :D

    I will be interested to see how much of a real difference you see between the 9800 and 9600 Pro in both benchmarks and just look and feel i.e If 3dmark wasn't higher would you know?

    After using a nForce board (Abit NF7-s) for some time, I must say I prefer the stability of the Intel chipset.

    yes prime95 image shows cpuz reporting memory @230mhz 2-3-3-6 being pc2700 but it's 2x512mb xms3500c2 which have been wrongly programmed as pc2700 heh

    The memory bandwidth score you got on pc mark 2002 is just sick, nothing other than a SICK score..! :wow:

    Oh can't wait til I have my Asus P4P800 Deluxe and a Gb of Corsair.. :flames:

    here's some 5:4 action with cheaper 2x 256mb ocz premier pc3500 memory which cost AUD$88/each

    2.4C@3204mhz (267FSB) 5:4
    2x 256MB OCZ PC3500 Premier (rated at 2.5-4-4-7 at 2.6v)
    @213mhz 2.5-4-4-7 at 2.85v
    with 1.01 bios
    with vcore 1.6v haven't tried lower yet
    with 1.7v vAGP
    with HT enabled
    with Promise IDE Raid disabled
    with SATA disabled

    could load windows and run benchies at 270FSB/216MEM 2.5-7-4-4 but pcmark2002 rebooted.. (strange at 270FSB/216 cpuz doesn't report any memory info, do timings or what rated stick they are - at 267FSB/213mhz cpuz detects memory normally)
