    I brought a new Intel Pentium 4 1.6A processor a couple of weeks ago after being told it was a good overclocking processor.

    I popped it into a Soyo Dragon Ultra (SiS 645) with 768mb Crucial PC2100 DDR SDRAM and regular GeForce3 hoping it would reach somewhere around 2GHz at the most, which I would have been happy with.

    After some playing around I was able to get the processor to boot at 2.5GHz (100 x 150) with standard air cooling - That is an 900MHz overclock, anyone thinking back to the Celeron 300A days? :)

    It didn't boot into Windows at 2.5GHz, but I backed the processor down to 2.41GHz and ever since that time it has been running everything as stable as a rock - 800MHz overclock.

    The only problem is because the FSB is set fairly high I have to run the memory slower untill I get some PC2700 or "PC3000" from OCZ.

    I'm pretty impressed nevertheless! :afro:

    I have also had a bit of success clocking up the northwood 1.6A i have ATM gotten to 2.3Ghz, with the stock cooler, but it is running hot (53idle and 60full load) but i am looking for somrthing better (volcano 7+ me thinks) and looking for a voltage mod for a ASUS P4B, to go higher, oh and BTW i am getting a TI4400 in a couple of days - they are supposed to be in brisbane wednesday, and i have a LAN thursday night, i really have my fingers crossed i'll get it by then :D
