Yeah, I know alot of you probably know this already, but I couldn't find it anywhere (used the forum search).
Fugger has got a Prescott to POST and enter BIOS at 7.2 Ghz.

That's DFI for you guys ! :)

Well, FX-55, slightly overclocked is sufficient for P4 7.2 ;)

am I the only one that noticed that in the screenshot it said "estimated new clock speed 7200" or somthing like that? All its telling you is what the computer would be running at IF you set the FSB to 380MHz... I'm calling bull$#!+.

Jim H: yes, it says estimated clock speed down there, so u'll know what it will be after adjusting settings. If u look near the top of the screen, it says: Frequency: 7.22GHz

I'll stick up for AMD anytime, but in Intel's defence, the FX-55 can't come close to comparing against a 7.2ghz cpu .

>> Re: P4 at 7.2 Ghz
but jeff, atleast the AMD will boot !

What is the point in that? run or set the CPU to its fastest possable speed that you cannot use... pointless unless the computer will run! :)

LOL, brought to u by DFI :)

And yes JEFF, FX-55 overclocked "CAN BEAT" P4-7.2

Check Sander's Artcile, a Pentium @ 5.2 was actually struggling to keep up with FX-55 "STOCK"

Whatelse u want from FX-55?, which was running at its "Stock Speeds", check review again dude, and that difference is almost neglible in games. So by overclocking FX-55 to mere 100Mhz, that difference would turn into AMD favour.


Once again AMD proved, clock speed is nothing compared to good architecture with better Branch Prediction & Shorter Pipelines. Ofcourse it looks quite sweet too 7.2GHZ !!!!! oh boy, but where's the Power?

you consider a 10% boost significant?
I won't upgrade a component if it only gains me 10% performance, as there's little point

Pretty sad when we cant keep the topic at had on a straight path when you have pro-AMD'rs taking a jab into it. Sadddddddd.

Hey, people!
The point is: He got it to post, and stable in BIOS at 7.22! Can any1 else claim to have done that! He is awesome. Read the whole thread!

The screen shot was NOT from a POST it was from the BIOS, BIG difference. If i want I can use gigabyte's easy tune and tell it to crank the bus up to 380MHz and it shows me a speed of around 7GHz but that doesn't mean anything unless you click 'go' and it runs up the system clock, at which time the system would lock up. All he did was change the number of MHz of the system bus in the BIOS but he never saved the settings. Its a trick, and not even a clever one at that. it says on the same line that the 7.2GHz is listed, "estimated new clock speed" (that means it isn't running that fast, but if you save the settings it will try to get there) Anyone that believes this guy got a P4 to 7.2GHz is a gullible fool.

Jim got a point here.

you first Post before you go into bios utility. So with that picture of bios screen and the estimated 7.2 thing is all is displayed from the adjustment of bios..... Now the trick is to save it and let it reboot..... hehehehe.... Personally at this point I think the fella is trying to pull the blanket over everyone. What he should be showing is the actual Post screen and windows screen showing 7.2. Oh yeah..... I scanned threw their forum and everyone was already congratulating him and not quite questioning him on the actual post screen or window screen showing 7.2. But what is more interesting to me is im waiting for the processor core to explode and blow whatever cooling contraption right out the side of the case when the save button is hit and a reboot happens. eheheheheheh

Jim and GG: No, you're wrong. It says estimated clock, yes. That will be the frequency after he reboots. But as I said earlier, at the top of his screen it says what speed he's currently running at...

Aven,

I went back and looked at that image again and i see what you are saying, but.......... if he is actually at 7.22 and he goes into bios, why would that one line in the adjustment section say estimated new CPU clock as posed to saying something like cpu clock speed - 7.22 or the like. (but of course i wouldnt know what this bios would look like in the first place when it is running normally) OR could it be possible that when he fiddles with the adjustment below that the numbers at the top changes with it too at the same time and that the mb is actually up at 3.8. Just curious.

The top line says the current clock speed. If he changes any of the settings, the estimated clock speed will change, but the one at the top won't. I think.
