oh~ (how STUPID of me)
But, I do wish it was unlocked
P4 2.0A are Northwoods right? So the VCore is 1.525? That's truly amazing how you got a 50% overclock with default voltage then.
what's the difference between a northwood and..........ya know the rest.. and what 's mine??
yep, it's a northwood, yep it's at default voltage..
I can run her stable at 3.2GHz but I have to bump the voltage to 1.65
I would rather just run at 3GHz and keep her at default.
is that possible, such high bumps without going through the others??
You have a northwood b chip.
and the difference?? how do you tell?? and which one is better??
Willamettes were Intel's first P4s. They actually started out in Socket 423 form. After some time, they switched over to socket 478 Willamettes. The next major revision was the introduction of the Northwood core. This core required less power to operate and was able to reach higher clock speeds and such. Willamettes were default at 1.75 V while the Northwoods were 1.525 V or 1.5 V. Northwoods run from 1.6A, 1.8A, 2.0A all the way to the current 3.0 C. So to answer your question: Your core is a Northwood.
the lettering..for instance the ever so popular Northwood 2.4A, 2.4B and the new 2.4C. The letters represent the following:
A = 400 FSB
B = 533 FSB
C = 800 FSB
ya thankz.........you guys have very cool OC with your motherboard (the same actually), does that support dual-channel??
Well, for one I have a northwood A = 100MHz fsb.
You have a northwood B = 133MHz fsb
I can't tell you which one is better..
That's the one downside of the P4PE. The new 865PE board from ASUS is like THE board. I love my P4PE~!
well, seems to me like its time to have a change of mobo, cause you guys can run 533fsb @nearly 800
When I was assembling...
When I was researching parts for my rig. The prices for the P4PE and the P4S8X were roughly the same. But after doing some hardcore review searching and judging, I sacrificed the AGP 8X and went for the P4PE.
Yeah the P4PE is an awsome board
yeah~, i got this P4S8X-X because of the 8x as i've a GFti42008X, but in the sense of Ocing th eP4pe is definitely better....
I would have loved to take advantage of the 8X..
But since the improvement was marginal at the most, it wasn't worth it. With the coming of new P4 MoBos. The P4PE should be sliding down the price ladder. It's quite affordable...actually VERY affordable for what it's capable of.
i prefer better Ocing than 8x, cause after getting this, only then i knew the 8Xsucks
:lol:. speaking of mobos , what 's the difference between the northbridge and the south one??
I bought my P4PE refurbished from newegg.
So, it was real cheap..
what does it mean when you use the word refurbished??
Separate names with a comma.
