    Nope... not true. You cannot adjust the multiplier, but there is still a lot of performance to be gained through overclocking the FSB.

    It's Intel manufactured motherboards that ya can't overclock.

    Yep, Wiggo is right again. Oh how I despise that smug smirk on his face whenever he talks Intel down J/K ;) I've heard rumors though that Intel is looking into allowing a bit of overclocking abilities in future BIOS to stay more competitive in the enthusiasts market.

    I wouldn't believe what ya read :) There's been rumours floating around about what ya just said, and there's also been rumours floating around 'bout the inability to overclock (eg., Intel locking the FSB as well as the multiplier). Woudln't read too much into that, things'll stay the same (i'm almost positive) for a while yet. It might be Tejas where all this overclocking is put to an end, or opened up :) Or it could just say the same.

    imo Intel might never take such a risk! most of the PC users try to overclock their CPU (oh okk not most of them but lot of them) and i m sure intel would never want to do anything that might hit them hard...cos overclockers means big business

    they blow most of the CPU's :laugh:

    Those that are serious about overclocking like a lot of us are... gone to the extreme, use LNē or Dry Ice, which'll kill a cpu in a few months just from the absolute sheer coldness. Even the Vapo and the Promethia aren't too nice on keeping CPU's alive... Helping to get to high clock speeds sure, but keeping it alive... heh :) So ya I agree with ya... But who knows what's gonna happen in a year's time. Ya never know, Compaq might do something with the Alpha and try and get back into the game.

    Sorry if I led you in the wrong direction. What I meant was Intel BOARDS as in motherboards could have overclocking features in the feature. These are boards that are designed by Intel. Intel has always been known for stable boards, but no o/c or tweaking. Lately the BIOS has some more tweaking abilities then they used to, but still no O/C. That could change in the future.

    But ofcourse I could be reading what you're trying to say completely wrong this early morning and making a total jackass of myself...:p

    Ahhh I see :) my mistake... I thought you meant the processors themselves.
