    Back onto PIV's

    After selling my 28GHz PIV and moving to a A64 3200 then selling that before the price cuts im now sat with a 2500+ @ 2.7GHz.
    So ive just bought my next CPU and mobo second hand from another forum, Ive got a IC7 MAX 3 and a 3.4GHz PIV, forgot to check if it was northwood or prescott , anyhow its gonna be watercooled with 2 rads so shouldnt make much difference eather way.
    Anyhow what clocks do you recon Ill get, I estimate to get the most from my ram ill need to get the chip to just over 4.2GHz, is this possible on water?

    One day ill find a CPU and mobo I like enough to keep longer than 3 months lol

    I thought the maximum was about 5GHz, with nitrous cooling??

    Welcome back to the fold (The Intel Owner's Club. :-))

    I'd say that getting 100% Prime stable @4.2 might be a bit too far for water, but who knows. As ever with overclocking, every system and every CPU is different. Still, an 800MHz jump on a 3.4 is a long shot, and I've only really seen this done with Vaporchill's, etc. If you are lucky, though, and get a sweet CPU - and you put a decent fan and rad in there - then maybe you'll hit it. Just go for it and let us know.
