I was surfing the web when I read this:
"This is getting more and more crazy. Bunny Workshop has overclocked his Athlon 700 to 1152Mhz!!! He ran it at a mere 1.85V with MS 6167..." - source Vision Online http://vision.intercosmos.com/index2.htm
Well this is going crasy - why the hell would you need to o/c your lighting 700MHz Athlon to 1100MHz?!?
"...You drive me crasy...."
Well there is no doubt that the perf. will be superb (I don't know any Intel CPU to run that fast), BUT why in hell do you need to run 700MHz Athlon so fast and with that core voltage - 1.85V - according to AMD Athlon datasheet the highest core voltage can be 1.7V!!!

ok well the 1151.51 mhz is cool. but it can only be as fast as the hard drive can load the info.. my question is what about the 64 bit cpus comming out second half next year?? not intel compatable from AMD? how fast will those be??1-2 Ghz.. if any one has info onthis i would like to know.. i have a friend that works for amd in Capbell CA. but he can't release info.. kinda sucks...
Who would have guessed that Abit would release a dual Celeron board? Wait 'til an Athlon chip costs $75 and see what Abit gives you to plug it into. Remember that motherboards suitable for overclocking are a niche product. I think the overwhelming success they've had with their BP6 will help dictate the future of Abit. They are now the world authority on overclockable dual boards, I see no reason they would risk losing that honor. Mark my words, folks, a dual Athlon IS in our future. In fact, dual processors are already required just to keep up with me. And I ain't special.

P4 firstname.lastname@example.org dual R134A phase change chillers with 600watt thermoelectric array. Capable of -70F
Nixie tube numeric display control panel and pneumatic motherboard tray.
the only problem i have with these jokers who overclocked their Lawn is that they disabled the cache! Talk about killing the performance of your puter.... jeeez! I bet the 900mhz kryotech system is faster than this junkbucket.
Speaking of having a fast HD, try something like this USCSI drive i've got (seagate), i benchmarked my entire system, and apparently the access time on my hd is 4.5ms... hrrmmm... 8-Þ
highping, check out ChipGeek at www.geek.com , they have some info on that stuff... oh yeah, and those pesky NDA's suck, don't they
I'm keeping my eyes open and building a little Athlon nestegg waiting for a little lower price and a newer VIA chipset. I understand Asus is no longer going to produce its' K7M, but check out what's just over the horizon. http://www.slota.com/motherboards/
