    Ohhhhh thats different, I have suddenly been drawn to AMD. I don't know why but they hang less (not at good at games) but can get the job done. I like how Intel has a built on heatspreader, means i can be lazier...

    Yes it is old and that quote would've been around the KT400/A era but of cause that statement isn't as correct as it use to be.

    I don't think thats a good move on AMD's part. I know my post name is intellover, but I have always loved AMD for their ease of overclocking. Bad move.

    They're unlocked downwards but there is no way to unlock them upwards from the set multiplier (only the FX range is fully unlocked).

    Theyre unlocked downwards to allow "cool and quiet" to function, but thats it. But the new 90nm winchesters seem to go 33% over stock with decent air cooling...

    Or in conjuction with the HT multiplier by an overclocker who wants to see how far they can push the internal CPU/memory HTT/frequency while keeping the mainboard HTT at a stable speed (its just a shame though atm that higher rates only seem to be produced while using PATA HDD's and not while operating with a SATA HDD's).
