    They look to be good overclockers, Same as the Mobile Athlon Xp 2500+ chips were :)

    It's still based off the same core as the clawhammer, it just has half the cache disabled, The newcastle and winchester cores only have 512K L2 to begin with.

    The NF4 basically just is a NF3 but with PCI-express... it also has SATA-2, but I wouldn't hold your breath on that helping anytime soon. So just get a NF3-Ultra, it is basically the same thing.

    hey Reality....
    i have actually considered buying the neo 2 p ..but a bad experiance with MSI when they came out, has had me reluctant to do so.

    ive been asus ever since, mostly because you cant beat them for stability and a lil bit of oc ability.

    convince me..!!!! lol...seriously though, i remember something of some issues when the neo's came out ,but dont remember exactly what they were. and if so, has there been bios or driver updates that has made the neo a solid stable board...

    im not married to asus...but shes been good company ;) lol

    Fine by me... but dunno when that will be, I'll definately wait until the new core is released at under $200. Yeah, sounds like any day now, but it remains to be seen how long it takes to filter down to the cheaper models. A 3800+ is still $350, more then I want to spend just to get another 500 MHz or so I probably won't really notice anyway, though I am hurting to get more out of my watercooling setup. It stands to reason AMD's first goal is to get rid of .13 micron processors, since they are more expensive to make, so that's the 3800+ and FX-55. So it all depends on how fast they roll out the new core revision...

    More info:

    http://www.xbitlabs.com/articles/cpu/display/athlon64-venice.html

    Venice core... looks like they got 2.88 GHz at 1.53v.

    http://www.xbitlabs.com/articles/cpu/display/athlon64-venice_12.html

    Strange they didn't try 1.6v they presumbably must have had the ability to with one of the boards they had lying around. 3.0 GHz at 1.6 or 1.65 wouldn't suprise me too much. Though these are 3800+ chips, I don't think previous revisions were stratefied too much by model when it came to max OC speed.

    Hmm, looks like AMD did a good job. See gaming performance improvement here:

    http://www.xbitlabs.com/articles/cpu/display/athlon64-venice_9.html

    Looks like better memory compatability as well. Though Xbit didn't get any SSE3 performance improvements for some reason...

    lovin it......2.805 @ 11x 255 @ 1.6 v 31 idle... 46-47c load...runnin atitool 3d screen and cpu-z and pc probe, all over the forums here and extreme overclockers, stable so far.

    ran 2001se for about one hour ...booting to windows no problem...setting speeds from bios not using clockgen. i cant post an attachement here ( dont know why, been here long enough lol ) but the cpu-z screenshot is over at extremeoverclockers in the thread, last page that the link was posted here.

    i think i may even be able to lower the voltage some... :cool:

    you have a newcastle 3200+ @ 2.8ghz with just 1.6vcore?
    is it 8 hour prime stable? cause my 3500+ NC needs 1.75 just for 2.5
