As soon as it comes back into stock, and if I decided to keep this chip, or go buy the new one...I did get about $160 in cash for Christmas, so that'll help push things along

it would be disapointing if you couldn't get past 2.5Ghz, i would then return that processor. It's crap the way the best ocing processer out there is probably being used for word processing, doesn't that make you feel pissed off (not in a bad way, butin a dissapointing way). I hope they get the database up soon

No luck
SOMETHING had to go wrong. Just read on the DFI forums, someone bought that new stepping excaliber had and was doing 2750MHz with 1.7 vcore... my goal is still 2800MHz, and I'm a little impressed with this thing running 2.37GHz at 1.4 volts
Now just have to get Windows to work correctly (we all know it'll never happen), so I think I'm gonna flash the BIOS real quick.

Well a little more vcore got it into windows at 220x11, but that worries me, now I'm beginning to wonder if the memory controller might have problems...

Since you guys are all AMD 64 guys.. I thought I just ask a quick question here..
My friend just bought this CPU, and this motherboard.. and now he is DEFINATLY selling me his Never-overclocked Pentium 4 2.8Ghz Northwood @ 800Mhz FSB for $150!

Since hes a overclocking noob, what kind of an overclock is he going to get? I told him to buy a Venus 12 (since its a decent cooler) and some AS5. He has 1Gb of no-name DDR400 ram (2x 512mb) and hes getting the 500-watt X-connect.
All I want to know really, is just a safe setting at a stable overclock just to push some extra speed out of it... It if freezes... He'll probably try to beat the **** out of me for putting his computer together incorrectly.. lol

Thats awsome that you got the new mobile chip I hope it works well enough for you

If it oc's really well I may consider gettin it but right now it seems my non mobile 3000+ and your old 3200+ are clocking higher I really hope you get up to that 2.8

keep us informed

The 3400 NewCastles on average seem to do around 2.6-2.7GHz, but as usually take little baby steps at a time.

Well just started priming this thing at 2.53GHz (my old overclock
) using 1.5vcore. I'm a bit put off by the way it hangs at the Windows loading screen, but doesn't freeze, that says problem with the memory controller to me, especially since a bump in voltage solves the problem...Still shooting for that golden 2800MHz, but I've also go the credit card out ready to buy that new stepping from excaliberPC

I got up 400mhz on stock with out upping the VC and I have a albatron 8x800 I think he could get to 2.6 or 2.7 maby ... that generic ram will hurt him

I wanted to ask you something about that actually...
It's been going around pretty quickly that NewCastle cores of the date code 0433 or later (probably only up to about 0436) are overclocking like nuts, 2800MHz is very common. You should check the date code on that chip and crank it up man.
