Pentium 4 Overclocking Adventure

By: Tio Chaharbaghi | Intel CPUs in CPUs, Chipsets & SoCs | Posted: Feb 17, 2003 5:00 am

CPU Selection


As you noticed already, we are using a Pentium 4 processor in this review. But which one did we select?



If you can't tell by the picture, I'll tell you. We decided to use a Pentium 4 2.4B 533 FSB processor which we picked up locally. We decided to get this CPU since it seems to overclock well, and the price isn't that steep. We have seen reports that this CPU hits near the 3GHz mark.



Above you can see a snapshot for all those wondering what the package information is on this particular CPU.



The retail package includes a few things in its package. The CPU, as well as the infamous Pentium 4 retail heatsink. A lot of people have been reporting over the past little while that this retail heatsink smokes any other retail heatsink ever released. Some dangerous enthusiasts don't even bother buying another, and go to incredible overclocks with just this heatsink.


It also includes a small manual as well as Pentium 4 sticker and warranty information.
