Middle of Nowhere and getting lost fast!
So I've been out of the Intel game for awhile, and just picked up a 3.0C on a steal of a deal. Sold the Barton 2800+, board, and RAM to buy the P4, board, and RAM and made a hundred bucks in the process. The only problem is my Intel bundple came with a crappy Intel 865PE board that won't overclock. :mad:

In reading through some reviews of 865 chipset boards, some mentioned adjusting the multiplier on "ES" series chips.

As a die-hard AMD'er for two years now, I never thought this was possible. Anyone got any info?

Engineering Samples are illegal to have and are usally lousy overclockers becuase there are older steppings, they are not totaly unlocked completely most of them have a range of multies. And there is no way to unlock a normal intel chip that funtion is locked at the transistor level deep inside the silicon core where normal tools would fail. The ES chips are usally given out to larger OEM's to test computers with and there are Intels property for a certain time.
