I may get P4 setup toward the end of my graduation....and I would like for it to be based on a 875p but with a kinda low end CPU so I can overlock the crap out of it...So I was considering the 2.4 400FSB.....is that a 2.4b?

It's not really worth the money to go with an 875 board and
then NOT go with a 800FSB Chip!

Think of it this way, your typical 875 board can go 250FSB to
300FSB.

You're typical 2.4b chip goes to 220FSB or so, whereas your P4
2.4c can go 250-300.

If your harts set on a 2.4b chip, then go with an 845 chipset
like the BH-7 if you want true budget setup. If you can spring
a little more, I'd go with 865.

But in all honestly, 800FSB and 875 is the tops.

The 2.4 400 bus CPU is actually called the 2.4A. The 2.4B is the 533 bus flavor. I would not get the 2.4A as it has a 24X multiplier. There is no reason not to get the 2.4C if you're getting a mobo with the i875 chipset. You want high FSB for max performance.

2.4A=24X100 FSB
2.4B=18X133 FSB
2.4C=12X200 FSB

Why would you want a 2.4b over a 2.4C?? The 2.4C will perform better stock and you'll end up getting far more memory performance in the end.

The typical B goes to 220? Where?


If you are deadset on the B, go with either a good quality 845PE board or an 865 after they mature a little bit.

BTW: I don't think there's a price difference between them.

I don't understand why you'd get an i875 mobo (like the Abit IC7) and not get a 2.4C. It's only maybe $20 more than the 2.4B and you'll have lots higher FSB and hyperthreading. That much more performance is worth the extra $20.

I've had 5 2.4b chips through my rigs, and all of them with a
date of Week 7 2003 Costa Rica and newer hit 220FSB.

I just figured that's what they all were doing with those
dates or better....

Was I really that lucky?

220 FSB with a 2.4B is almost 4 gig... that's hardly typical... what a crock. Sorry, but no way. Better show us some screenies.
