    Prescott 2.4Ghz 533mhz FSB

    I just landed myself this version of the prescott CPUs. Does anyone else have a 533mhz FSB version of prescotts ? Does it overclock well- havent attempted yet as it runs quite a bit hotter than me old northwood.

    many people are having good luck with them, most people are hitting the same speeds as the 3.0E chips are able to hit.

    The Prescott 2.4A is a 533 bus CPU. Don't ask me why Intel calls them "A", because it makes things rather confusing.

    2.4 PRESCOTT

    Guys,

    Just clarifying the 2.4ghz prescott is labelled by Intel as 2.4A and runs on a 533Mhz FSB.

    I'm using it on an Abit IS-7 mobo and its reporting the temperature as 58deg idle and 63deg onload. Appear high to me - not much scope for overclocking
