no from what i read the x2 4400+ ran pretty even with the 955 EE so im guessing the x2 4800 would be right on with the 965 EE

Still a a bargain, since the X2 goes for $632 on Newegg and the 965 costs a grand.

Great thread Waxshop! Dont expect too much of your CPU though. I have seen a few results from the new retail X6800's (new B2 stepping) and they dont seem to be overclocking anywhere near the same as the older stepping 5 ES conroe's. Some ES 6600's have often overclocked close to 4GHz on air/water cooling (not stable)...but if the new retail 6600 stepping is like its bigger 6800 brother then the results will be a lot lower.

Here is an example....Coolaler has just reached 5.3GHz (with LN2 of course ) with his stepping 5 ES 6800, but the retail version is conking out at under 4GHz!!

Hope this helps mate

Well the reason why intel isnt cold bugged is because thier memory controller is onboard instead of on die. And the retails havent been overclocking because (ive heard) Its the temp probs reading wrong and most of them are afraid to push it high cause they dont know the actual temp. Im guessing i can get 4 or a lil over on phase in which i will be happy if i do, i am very confident in my tweaking abilities

Ah right I didnt realise that Waxshop! Yeh, I think you should be able crack 4Gigs easy with your skills Waxy....that would be a good target then anything over that will be a bonus.

In order to increase the max stable FSB of your board...take a look at some of the Vmch mods which people have been doing.

Also, maybe it would be a good idea to lap your CPU if you are going for optimal air cooling temps at first.

Hope this helps...

p.s. I take it you have downloaded coretemp 0.91? That is a good conroe temp monitor...in case you need one.

No Need for volt mods. The core goes up to 1.7v and the Vdimm up to 2.4v i think thatll be good enough. (the DFI Infinity goes to 1.9 Vcore)
