    Is that limit set by the chip or the socket/MB? I know my MB has a 3GhZ limit.

    What does this max speed thing mean? Is that what you could clock it to with UBER COOLING and a EXTREME FSB? If so my XP 1800+ reads 3000.

    That was part of the P4 bug that Intel found near the release. Originally the next chip was a 3.6gHz for the Granite Bay, But we all know how that went. Now the Cpu is underclocked and fitted with the Quad pumped 800mHz bus.

    Ah...not that I would try to overclock it that high anyway...highest I've gotten stable was 3300 MHz (220 x15).

    That's still a nice OC, By chance do you have Asus mobo? I have read some things about OC limitations on the Asus Mobo's. They said the next Bios Revision will fix the issue. I will find the link.

    Yep, I have the P4C800 Deluxe. It has some funky memory settings, so at 220 FSB my memory scores went down. I figured it was akin to the divider ratios on the ABIT boards, but I tried all the settings and my memory only hits the 4500-4700 range at the default FSB and DDR400 settings. I even disabled the turbo and enhanced performance settings and still no go.

    I would imagine memory being the bottleneck of course...

    I'm using Corsair XMS PC3500. That's not the problem. It's the BIOS settings. I just have to figure them out.

    burke, i dont know if u are enrolled, but you should find a credit card that has BVG (best value guarenteed) it allows u to Pricematch an item you bought to another store for up to 60 days. I dont know if that applies to CPU stuff, but worth a shot
