3DFlyer said:The nf4's are unstable, and they run hot. Just to show the difference in stability, you can run a 955x up to 300FSB all day long, and all that would do on a nf4 is let the smoke out...it would crash long before then though so getting it there for any length of time is really a moot point.
That's not to show how high they can OC, but how stable they are non-OC'd. If a 955x can run 300FSB stable, it is far more stable unclocked than the nf4 is.
They are pitiful on an Intel system. There are mnay threads about them. From what I have seen, they're not much better on the AMD systems either, but I guess that's the best you can get for an AMD system, as there are no other choices.
They shouldn't even be selling those things. They ought to recal them, but they are still puking them out to the masses who are buying on name only without doing any research on them.
The Intel forum is litered with posts where people have been totally disapointed with them. No serious Intel user runs a performance system unclocked. There is no need to. With the Intel chipsets, they are stable as a rock, and outperform every other chipset made. There is no question at all about that.
Also, a PD has no problem at all going to 5GHz. it's been done mnay times. You just have to know how to cool them. Most serious OC'ers should have a handle on cooling. If you can't cool one though, you can't clck one. That goes with any CPU. You can't clock one 'til it overheats, and it expect it to be stable. Alot of people complain about low clocks, but it's becasue they can't control the heat.

anyway in the benchmark it doesn't matter wheter it's more stable or not, but if the performance is equal...
I don't know about intel systems, but how do the NF4 motherboards compare performance wise with the current intel chipsets?
