Default Intel Pentium Extreme Edition 955 Presler

You all have probably heard about it by now.
If not its the newist from intel. 65nm Extreme Edition means that it has HT on each core (windows will see this CPU as 4 cores)

ANYWAYS because of its 65nm it is able to be overclocked higher then standered 90nm CPUs.

People are over clocking this CPU to 6GHz with watercooling ofcorse lol. Can you belive that.

"What are you running?"
"Oh now adays i am running my Pentium D 6GHz."

That would be awesome. Imagen that with 4Gigs of DDR667 and 2x 7800GTX or X1900's that would be awesome.

Anyways i thought i would just share that because that insane lol.

Thumbs up Re: Intel Pentium Extreme Edition 955 Presler

I have have been lapping up reviews on the Xtreme Ed on iNods.com I came across this one where they have pitted the Pentium against the AMD...awesome results.

SYSTEM 1:
Pentium Extreme Edition 955 (3.46GHz)
Pentium Extreme Edition 840 (3.2GHz)
3.73GHz Pentium Extreme Edition

v/s

SYSTEM 2:
AMD Athlon 64 X2 4800+ (2.4GHz)
AMD Athlon 64 FX-57 (2.8GHz)

There are more reviews on this site on the intel 65nm Extreme Edition. By the way can anyone recommend me a good liquid cooling cabinet other than Alienware (they are little pricey ) ? Thanks
