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$#!+.
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?
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.
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
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.
