No improvement was seen when AMD moved the MC from their NB to the CPU die.

I posted why already, they used a 90nm fabrication process. It put off more heat than Intel's 65nm. If you look at Intel's 90nm though, it put out even more heat than AMD's.

I've never heard of an AMD, let alone any processors lighting on fire. The only time they would burn out is if the CPU cooler is missing / horribly mounted.

haha i thought this was a joke post when i first read it ''how can something freeze when it gets hot'' then it hit me

Doh!

generally speaking amd seem to be lagging behind intel at the moment, although they are incredibly good value processors (amd)

i hope they don't go into bankruptcy, as that would leave intel + nvidia with no opposition and free to charge what they want.

The chipset is the guts of the motherboard, you can't change it. The chipset is what links everything up (BASICALLY) NVidia chipsets and the Intel SkullTrail($750+) are the only chipsets that can do SLI. All new Intel chipsets can do CrossFire(ATI cards, much more efficient than SLI) Intel chipsets usually overclock better than NVidia.

The easiest way to do it is by going into the BIOS and raising your FSB. If you have a locked BIOS, you can try software, but it may not work.

well i don't know about overclocking but can you overclock a company computer. when i go to my system bios i can't change the voltage frequency or the FSB speeds.

^^ why are u trying to OC a company computer? isn't this against the company policy. if ur company computer is made by dell,hp,compaq..etc it's unlikely that u can OC any of those brands there bios are locked for a reason.

You can try software overclocking, but it isn't as stable as going through the BIOS.
