    Good point, you could keep $250 bucks if ya got a 2.2ghz, and use it to get good cooling and **** and just o/c it to round 3ghz

    TEC = Peltier = Thermoelectric cooling...well it has a cold side and a hot side. A really hardcore pelt can get 10C temps and below, but for it to be effective the heatsink/water block MUST be able to dissapate 3 times the amount of heat the computer is generating. Another problem would be condensation...you can make it so the mobo is condense free, but it takes time and you can really ruin your board.

    omfg 1.2 are you insaine?!?! i got a 1ghz and there is no way this thing meets more then 20-% of what i wan/need it to do for me, i just dotn have enough bus speed to encode mpeg4 on the fly(i do that ALOT) upload/download surft the net, do my mIRC 'stuff', hell it doesnt even play 1/2 the games i want it to even if thats the only thing im doing. so im not looking at this 4ghz monster as a want, more of a need, u ever try to back-up 45gig folder with a 1ghz proc?? it took me over 100 hours of solid RAR'ing to egt the job done,m and for theos 100 hours my pc was next to useless, couldnt even do videochat or even non video voice chat, maybe u dont do photoshop or video editing or even burn a cd but most of us sure do, if a 1.2 will work for you, im very fuc*in happy, mean u dont got to spend a but-load of cash for a nice system i wish i didnt have to upgrade, what am i gona do with this box? it can barly even run win2k3 ent. server!!!

    omg toolbox is right, doom 3 thats suposed to just KILL the 9800/fx series cards... what i relly need is a dual xeon board with a couple of 2.5+/- ghz procs, both OC'dwith a scsi 160 or even 320 raidedbut i cant afford that, so i got to settle for a couple of WD raptors in raid with a single p4 id go with amd barton but for my video editing p4 is better/faster.
