I have seen report that the "Extreme Edition" Conroe will go up to 4.0Ghz... I guess we will see.

Imagine how this beast will OC.... I bet you can get the 2.67Ghz up to 4.0Ghz on the new archy.

Regardless Im keeping my ol' 550 and then buying one!

Ehhh, the Conroe will not support current mainboards because of the voltage regulator. It is designed to work with the 975X chipset, but motherboards are going to have to be updated with a new voltage regulator.
