Intel's Pentium 4 processors of late have matured into a well rounded desktop and workstation processor. Intel's introduction of value chipsets based on DDR-SDRAM has made the Pentium 4 somewhat affordable for the average users.
Northwood based Pentium 4's are naturally good overclockers. The 2.8GHz CPU is somewhat pushed to higher limits due to its rise of the V-core but is still worth overclocking. We managed 3.15GHz out of our CPU before it started to give us any problems and that was with just stock cooling. Adding water or other super cooling could lead to quite a bit more.
Intel still has a way to go with prices as AMD is still able to beat Intel in this department. But Intel has started to answer the call to arms.
Fastest desktop processor available to date
Overclocking is not without its charms
Heatspreader saves CPU die from death
Very Expensive @ 2.8GHz
