Yup, those 2.4A have a whole lot of OC potential.

While that's an insane overclock and a solid performer, it won't perform quite as well as a higher end Intels with a smaller percentage OC due to the lower FSB. For example, a 2.4A at 4.0 GHz has 4000/24 = 167 MHz external clock while a 3.2E at 4.0 GHz has 4000/16 = 250 MHz. The latter will squeeze a whole lot more bandwidth on the RAM which will equate to a performance boost. For the price (around $120), you can't beat a 4.0 GHz CPU.

The 2.4A has a x18 multi. So [email protected], the fsb = 222mhz.

Hrm...that spreadsheet I have shows two 2.4As, but whatever, the concept still holds...222 MHz vs. 250 MHz. Great for the price but not as good as a higher priced, similarly clocked CPU.

Yea you're exactly right.

I believe that there was an older p4 2.4 that had a x24 multi, 100fsb (quadpumped=400mhz) and a L2 cache of 512kb.

The newer p4 2.4s have a x18 multi, 133fsb (quadpumped=533) and a L2 cache of 1mb.

There is also a p4 2.4C, but that's a northwood with 200fsb (800mhz), which supports HT, but only have an L2 cache of 512kb.
But the 2.4C is also an excellent overclocking.

Why are you using a 3:2 divider?

Thata a little odd seeign how your ram is rated to run at 250mhz 2.5 cas and your not even close

Lol, that multiplier is so high that with a 222MHz FSB with 18 as the multiplier gets 3996MHz (you can't say you have 4GH if you have 3.996 lol). But if you have 223 as your FSB you get 4014MHz. So 223MHz with a multiplier of 18 will give you 4GHz.
