    Intel Pentium 4 breaks 5.25GHz
    The World’s fastest central processing unit discovered


    Reviewers from hardware web-site Tom’s Hardware Guide have managed to overclock a specially-selected Intel Pentium 4 “Northwood” processor to stunning 5.25GHz speed. The experiment was carried out using liquid nitrogen cooling, specially-designed ASUS P4C800-E mainboard and Corsair XMS PC4400 memory modules. More details on the matter are available over here.

    There is hardly anything ****ty with what THG did here and it's pretty impressive. I'd like to see either one of you pull it off.
    I've gone too far and need to move on!

    Soulburner: Thanks for that additional piece of information.

    I think the ****-hole remark was about THG in general. Just because they've got money to waste and contacts to get parts other people can't, doesn't mean they are better than others. And a lot of their reviews are, how do I put it nicely.... crap?

    It was in general I assume.

    The way he makes sure Intel wins every damn benchmark is just sick.

    I own an Intel system obviously, but I think its bull. A64 IS the superior processor right now, and Tom makes it look like ****. He doesn't provide fair benchmarks.

    He'll run the P4 at 2-2-2-5 timings and the A64 at 2-4-4-8 (this isn't a joke, he really did this) just so that its enough for the P4 to win in the latest roundup with the budget A64 3000+, which in reality is the most "bang for the buck" processor you can find today. Intel can't match it.

    On the other hand, Anandtech has done a fine job, NEVER biased either way.

    I saw that video, and read the article a few days agao, and thought it was pretty ridiculous, but entertaining at the same time. Very cool job, but I don't think it is going to be very reasonable to keep that processor running at that speed for your everyday activites. It think that in order to set processor clock records, they need to be used for like a time period of like a week or so atleast, to show that it's reasonable, and not just some richass nerds who shot their pc to pluto to attain these clock speeds. Still very entertaining tho...

    J/w, is teh new A643000+ faster than a 2.4C Intel o/c'd to 3Ghz? I always wondered that. We need reviews on budget CPU's. : peace2: Mista K6
    Modified Dell 8200 Case:
    -400MHz FSB i850 Intel mobo
    -P4 Williamette Socket 478, 1.9GHz
    -768MB 16-bit PC800 RDRAM
    -MSI GF4 Ti4200 128MB @ 284/581
    -7200 RPM Maxtors: 60GB (2MB) on mobo and 160GB (8MB) on ATA/133 PCI Card
    -Creative Inspire T7700 7.1 Speaker System on an Audigy 2
    -Windows XP Home Edition SP2

    Rock on : peace2: , MiStA K6

    This should help ya Mista K6 between the Athlon 64 3000+ and a P4 3.2C (the 3.2C would be fairly close to the o/c'd 2.4C), http://www.anandtech.com/cpu/showdoc.html?i=1937 ;)

    This one is a good budget CPU comparison, http://www.anandtech.com/cpu/showdoc.html?i=1927
