A64 3000+ 90nm Overclocking

    Anyone got one of the babies on order or has already tried overclocking it? Looking on Anandtech they got to 2.6 Ghz (>4000+ speeds))on air with minor cpu and mem overvolting. A 90nm 3500 hit the same speed - so it looks like its the natural limit for the first run of cores at 90nm

    Looks like I may have to upgrade sooner than I planned to take advantage of this one. Could be the best overclocker for ages. Might just have to hang on for the Nforce4 boards though....

    hmm if every chip will do around 2.6ghz on air!..dammit i cant even get 2.6ghz with water with my 2.4 chip :p

    as long as i can play around and get around 2.6 ill be quite happy to be sort of ..keeping up with these cores as they do sound rather good, just luckily the potential of it isnt enough to make my chip feel inferior so i dont have to go and buy 1 :D

    sound great though, id be curious to hear what people can get also..

    just got my a64 3200 clawhammer to 2.63 (tho thats on phase change cooling) :D

    Finally this board is showin its potential :)

    read that ariticle on anandtech and was thinking the same. xp3200+ is starting to show its age already if you look at the reviews wouldn't mind a socket 939 board with a 90nm 3000+

    /glares at the credit card relentlessly
    Going to be getting myself one of those 3200+ 90nm chips and seeing what it can do soon enough!

    Keep us informed :)

    Whille i dont think ill bother changing this chip for a good while (ie when i find i cant play everything at max anymore) i'd still be interested in knowing :)

    I'm scrambling for you as we speak....I badly want a 3000.

    holding out as I don't have great confidence in any of the s939 boards just yet. I really don't fancy being stuck with a motherboard that won't post without a newcastle chip or a hotflash or other faffing around either! :mad:

    Any particular reason for this?
