Seriously, just OC that CPU to the max and run some benchmarks and see if you can score some points on Hwbot.
For those benchmarks your CPU does not need to be 24\\7 stable. Just stable enough to run whatever bench it is.
I bought 3 brand new HDD's just to try and get a higher PCmark score. I just bought a GTX285 AND a HD4890 to try and compete for a $25 prize from OCN (and a chance for a DICE pot).
If you want to seriously get involved in Hwbot, buy a decent P35 or P965 chipset board, and a couple cheap P4's. Overclock the pisser out of them and bench away. Then you will want a DICE pot, or WCing. It's addictive. I spent $800 in the last 10 days on hardware to bench. Then I will just sell it and buy more EDIT:
I see you submitted a CPU-z for some points but have you run the other benches for that chip? With your current OC you can score points in every single one. Edited by PR1M3R - 5/25/09 at 11:17pm
