    Question New rig P4 2.6 800fsb in an IC7G, advice please

    Some of you may remember me planning to build a Barton system a while ago, then I got made redundant from my job.

    Now got a much better job and bought myself a new car (first priority). A friend of mine has a P4 2.6 800fsb going pretty cheap so I'm gonna build a new system around that. Decided on an Abit IC7G mobo as it comes highly recommended from a few people I know and the onboard sound is apparently "stunning".

    Few questions:

    * With stock hsf and 2x 5" case fans, how far will I be able to push the cpu?

    * To go further, which HSF would you recommend?

    * Will my ageing Geforce2:GTS be compatable with the IC7G? I have heard not

    * What sort of cpu temps should I be looking at getting. Obviously colder the better, but what is approx max load temp? My mate has his 2.6 @ 2.8 on stock cooling and it's doing 59C full load.

    Thanks in advance

    You should be able to go to 3.2 at least. Try to keep your temps in the 50 - 60c range when at full load. Can't really recommend a heatsink and fan.

    correct me if i'm wrong pls...but isn't it more benificial performance-wise if u'r ram:fsb ratio is 1:1 rather than just achieving a higher cpu clock w/ the ram running much slower b/c it can't keep up?
    i'm just askin b/c u said that the p4 2.6C can do at least 3.2...according to my calc, that means u need to run the fsb at 246 which regular PC3200 sticks can't reach...

    Well he didn't ask for performance, he asked for processor speed, but I do see your point.

    If he wants just raw clock speed, he could drop the divider down to 3:2 and then go for the FSB limit
