    System:

    3.73 EE (ES)
    Asus P5AD2-E (925XE chipset)
    2 x 512 MB OCZ DDR2 533
    Radeon 850XT
    Watercooled with TT Bigwater

    Overclocking Results:
    3.73@4.81 water cooled
    3.73@4.60 aircooled (Intel stock)
    3.73@4.55 100% stable

    This 3.73 EE runs "cool". The PCB is not in a case and this with watercooling, but look at this temperature at 4.55 GHz!

    One more information, it seems the 3.73 and maybe all 600 are hardlocked. I can't change the multiplier, even though the P5AD2-E has this feature for the 500 series, and even though the CPU I have here is an ES.

    These new kits are so easy to install. :o Much more handy than phase-change gear.

    What PCMark04 score does it get at stock speed, chainy?
    (and what HDD setup, as it makes a difference to PCMark04)

    Finally, the true successor of the M0 has arrived.. the N0! :D :thumbup:

    We should be careful with conclusions based on one processor sample. It could be one of the 1 out of 100 "golden samples". :leet:

    But something tells me: N0 is doing the job ;) To get with aircooling 800 MHz on top of an officially almost maxed out frequency of 3.73 GHz and that stable enough to run all benchmarks, is a very good beginning.

    Here is PCMark 2004 running at stock speed (14 x 266 Mhz). The HDD is a PATA Hitachi 750 with 8 MB cache.

    I remember reading on anand that 14x is the lowest multiplier possible for a prescott.

    somehow...I'm getting 46C degrees load with my 3.46EE on this motherboard with decent watercooling

    MCW6000
    MCP350 pump
    3x120mm rad
    ...

    time for a remount! :)

    One last question chainy .... what's your RAM running at there (particularly the stock settings PCMark04 result) .... 533MHz or 711MHz??

    The last PCMark 2004 result I posted is at stock speed of 533 Mhz (FSB 266) in 1:1.

    According to my observation running async in 4:5 does not have any positive impact on perforamnce. You get a little better bandwidth in Sandra (that is between the memory controller and the RAM). But as you do not change the bandwidth between the memory controller and the CPU, this gain is more or less useless for system performance.

    Yeah, I just wanted to set my P4-550 to the same settings and see what score it gets - I'll do it later tonight.

    My other thread (which has dropped to the depths of this forum) showed that 4:5 was of no advantage to overall system performance too.

    MY 3.46EE (Northwood/Gallatin) is running around 3C~5C hotter at stock speed than the new P4 600 series (Prescott bases) 3.73 EE. That is with exactly the same system and cooling.

    The temperature shown in the screenshot is with the PCB not mounted in a case and water cooling. But even taking this in account, it's still surprisingly low. The idle temp I got with the Intel stock HSF was 35C at 3.73 Ghz with the amibient at 22C. That's far below the values we know from the first generation Prescotts.
