    i want to get a 3.4 ghz p4 chip for my new system, but i was wondering how much i can get out of it with a volcano 7+ or a similar HSF unit. My goal is to break the chip in then maby get it to 3.8 ghz. This would also be my first time o/cing so if some one could help me with this, thanks, o btw i would also use pc3200 ram kingston or XMS.
    currently 1.4 ghz p4, geforce 3 240/545, 60 gig maxtor hd, sb live! Soon 3.4 ghz p4, ati 9800xr, wd raptor 75 gb or wd sata 120 gb, dual channel pc3200 (1024), am i forgetting?

    Well, those new p4s are supposed to reach your desired speed on stock cooling, so Im sure you could squeeze even more out of them with your cooling.

    You can very likely do 3.8Ghz on air with a 3.4NW but I wouldn't use any heatsink from Thermaltake to do it.

    Look at Thermalright.

    But if I were you I would get a 3.4E (Prescott) as it is for one, the same price, and two easily overclockable to 4Ghz + on air. I've seen 4.2 so far on air.

    the prescott is the same price?!!. hell let me get one of those, and thermaltake is bad? who makes a killer HSF then? i thought you were joking about the thermalright because i never have seen them before but i went to there page and they do make a killer heatsink, i like the sp94 but can you get a fan for them? o and seph asked how much i was going to spend its probably going to be 1850 with every thing. o btw is a 465 watt psu from emermax good for my next pc?

    Yeah stick with Thermalright for a beast like that. The Prescotts are getting a bit warmer than the Northwoods...

    Yeah get a good 92mm fan for it. I would look at Panaflo, they have fans that push a lot of air with less noise.

    Put in in an ASUS P4C800E Deluxe...or non deluxe if you don't need those options, but thats the only board so far I have seen good results from, a lot of the other boards have some sort of problem with running these new chips.

    20k will be very easy with a 9800XT...I think 3.4E + 9800XT will do 20k stock.

    I'm not around a lot so I can't say I will help you tweak and tune though...hell, I did all of that stuff by myself, thats how I learned...

    I last week used ya Vantec AeroFlow (your fav toy) and quite frankly I know that ya've never personally used the Volcano 7+ (temps 3C worse off on Athlons and 2C worse off on a P4C against the V7+ on medium speed plus I found no difference in noise levels and I've always stated that bi-metal heatsinks pretty much suck) but why put ppl onto something that maybe well out of their budget (up to 2x cost of a V7+ plus the cost of a fan that is noisier to get optimum performance) ? :?:
