That is true. You can easily overclock it, but the cache is impossible to raise.

4400+ all the way. Dual core will go a lot further than single core ever will, and it's got the Toledo core for 400 dollars less with 2x1MB cache.

The Toledo core is pretty nice. I like the Denmark core better though.

Yeah, but I would never raise the clock speed. IMO, just be grateful you have such a fast CPU, don't push your luck and your bills.

Overclocking can be safe and fun, just as long as you have patience and know what to do. It's by taking little steps one at a time, not just raising the clock speed up a bunch and expecting it to run.

I usually OC the CPU to a +200MHz unless if I go water cooling. Then, I would try to double it.
