You know what kind of people that say $1300 isn't a lot of money?

Bank robbers.

Hmmm i think iv'e run into a bit of a dilema.. Now the Asus board im getting. Ive read reviews its max FSB is 450.... now heres how i work it out (correct me if im wrong intel isnt my bag)

E6600 = 2.4ghz 1066 bus

1066/4 = 266.5
266.5*9 = 2398.5

So im asuming my multi is gonna be 9 right?

Well i have phase for this so i was sick clocks. BUT
If the max is 450 fsb then

450*9 = 4.05

Thats not what i was hoping for anyone PLEASE prove me wrong i hope im just figuring this out wrong lol

Seems the way to me mang. But you're rich, just run out and grab the E6700 or the X6800 instead.

I dunno, I think expecting 4GHz or more might be asking too much anyway. But I seem to be alone in that belief.

Well ill say this and you can quote me.... if 4.05 is the max then ill be at the max . But it seems stupid to limit something like that

Think about what you're doing... you're exceeding the manufacturer's recommended operational frequency by almost double, that in and of itself is quite a feat to achieve. I'd say you'll have a harder time getting the motherboard to run a 450MHz FSB before the CPU does. The limitation lies with the chipset, not the motherboard. Oh, and well with the processor multiplier, but again, manufacturer's recommended speed being doubled... it's way more than they'd expect of the chip anyway. All this assuming that chip is even capable of 4GHz (who woulda thought we'd run into motherboard limitations before CPU limitations in overclocking?).

lol I know. But i think my good ol mach II gives me a good advantage for that 4ghz. But i guess all will be said and done when its all together
