    Is it any way in hell for a 3.06 P4 to reach 4 ghz using the best air cooled hsf there is, like the Volcano 7+?
    Is this possible or is watercooling the only way to go? Let me hear your opinion on this.. /T :flames: :flames: :flames:

    I've heard of it bein' done by a few and the V7+ will give ya a good hand in gettin' there if it can be done.

    A Prometeia setup will certainly guarantee a better chance of success though. :devil win

    Yes i've heard about Prometia. I'm going to google some more facts about it.. But isn't it like 5-600$?

    Another good thing about air is that it could never hurt the system, just to bad we starting to see it's limitations though.. :(

    Thx for the link m8, but honestly isn't it a big risk that the chip just suddenly die on me with a 1 ghz oc even if the temp is normal..?
    The chip must have it's limitations other than heat..

    Of course all activitys on the darkside could be dangerous but 1 Ghz?:wow:

    The chances are there but idea is to find the safe limit.

    Ditto on that one Wiggo, just waiting for a stable price here stateside.

    And yeah Tweaker, i think it's most definitely a sign as it is
    product of Denmark. And the closest 1 2 me is Canada:snip::devil win :cheers:

    Go with an slk-900 and a blow hole in the side of the case, along with a 92mm tornado.


    sure, it'll be louder than all hell, but you could get some seriosu mhz out of it.
