P4 Costa Rica or Malaysia?

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
Hi there,
I am thinking of upgrading from a p4 3.06 with the 533 fsb northwood to a 3.2 or 3.4 northwood core. I noticed that they are made in lots of different countries and was wondering if there is any difference depending on where they are made. I seem to remember reading once that Malay was better but I'm not sure. Any info would be greatly appreciated. You guys ROCK!

Also, any reason as to why one is better than any other would be informative.

Where their made doesnt really matter at all, depends on your stepping and revision and especially cooling....just got to be lucky with the one they ship you

IMO they are about the same. I wouldn't worry about where they are produced, as long as the cores are good. Its a matter of luck.

As far as OCing goes, that 3.06GHz P4 will get you the farthest OCing wise, but will get creamed due to the 23x multiplier and 533FSB. Uh, I wouldn't get the 3.2 or 3.4 northy because they are fairly rare and overpriced for what you get. I would recommend a 3.2E prescott..

but, I think you should get a new motherboard before anything

I personally would choose a Malay, Israel or Costa Rica fab over a Taiwan, Shanghai or India fab.

Thank you all!
I know the Mobo needs to go, but I have to do one thing at a time. Right now I can get the 3.2 for free by selling my old chip ebay, etc and I get the 800 fsb. I figure eventually the price I can get for the 3.06 will go down when people get rid of their 533 mobos. Until I get the 800 fsb, I'm stuck with the 333 RAM. I tried some corsair xms 400 memory once and actually got lower scores on pcmark for the memory than the generic stuff I was using. I need to strike while the market is still hot.
