ASSROCK Posted March 2, 2004 Posted March 2, 2004 I work at a computer store and I was givin a Intel white box. At first I wasnt sure what I had in my hands, there was the normal intel sticker with SN on it and i looked it up and couldnt find anything about the kind of SN. So i open the box up and looked to what the chip said on it. Intel Confidential, That what it said, so with that in mind I was thinking it was maybe just maybe it was a Unlocked or even a Prescott. So I looked at the numbers on the CPU and found on the web that this inturn was a "Prescott". So I took a P4P800 from work and slaped it in the 3.2E and then some samsung pc3200 512 and then put the stock heat sink on and then tried to post and just as i thought no post. Then i knew for sure that this was a real Prescott or maybe even a extreme edition because it wont post on a 865 chipset. So went to asus and downloaded the bois upgrade to emulate the 875 chipset and it booted fine after that. I got into the bios, the first thing that was interested in was the multi. , it let me go backwards to so i can emulate the 2.8E and 3.0E. But couldnt go up any higher the 16. Now messing with the FSB was the fun part HAHA. Using manual overclocking not PAT (AI overclocking). Going higher with the FSB and raiseing up the Vcore wont post even going to 3.2 so i was messing with the vcore for a about 15 mins then i have a wilded idea and take the vcore down and then i went to go look at the intel site to check the standed vcore for the prescott's. and ya i didnt know that was at 1.57 i think it was at or 1.53 cant think of it off hand. so the lower the vcore and the more i moved the memory bus around the got it as high as 3.8 and then the bios started to go slow then clocked it at a 4.09 and then the bios complety locked up and the northbridge was so hot as goes everthing surrounding the cpu. I did all this about 2 weeks ago and i am going to be doing some more new test in a new tower with after market cooling maybe ever watercooling. After doing all of this i think the best idea is not to get a prescott , because i have a 3.0C clocked at 3.6 and stable in Windows i dont think that the Prescott can handle this at all.
