  4. Anyone remember that commercial where this guy gets this bloated system only to see a billboard with a higher end model of it as he's going home?

    I ordered an Athlon XP 2100+ and I GET THIS NEWS!!!

    haha that's some funny stuff.

    They're probably overclocked already from AMD close to their max. That's probably why they're harder.

    My 1800+ is at 1725mhz,,, With no errors on Prime95,,, and I'm still going up... One more mhz FSB and I'm at 2100+ levels...

    They can keep the Thoughrobred for awhile...

    Just wanted to brag :D...

    I'm a pent fan for now, since I have had no problems wiyh them. So what I read was a 2200xp is actually 1800ghz? Why don't they name them according to their ghz?

    that was my point. is there some kind of easy math to ifgure out the Ghz or does it vary. Pent makes it easy to talk about. With Pent 1600=1.6Ghz. If someone told me they have a 1600xp I assume they mean the same, because it's always been that way.I think they are falling behind so they uped the model # so it did'nt look so bad? I'm not trying to be an ass, just trying to see how this system helps the buyers out?

    The easiest way is to go to Newegg or someplace similar and look up the processor...

    IF you talking about OC speed then it's simply Multiplier*FSB=Clock speed... Example... A 266mhz Athlon Really runs at 133mhz... Multiply that by 11.5 and you get 1.53g,,, A XP1800+...

    Overclocked... 11.5*151fsb= 1737mhz

    For cooling forget subzero... It way to much hassle... The board and CPU has to be prepped correctly or it STOPS working... Trust me :D... Watercooling is the way to go... Now I'm thinking of running a peltier with a way to turn down the wattage...
