Update( 02/27/2007): I have uploaded the validation, click this link.
When I set up my Cedar Mill CPU, I am not expecting so much from this processor. I am thinking, 3.6GHz tops, on a stock cooler and maybe a notch of vCore for 100% stability. As you can see from that link, I hit 4GHz and I am not even spending any 'real' effort.
I was happy, 4GHz for such a cheap CPU is nice! I didn't tweak anything as far as CPU is concerned. I only played around with memory ratio, whether to set it at 1:1, or better but that's not really much of a concern. The fact that this processor booted without problem at 4GHz and completed anything and everything I throw at it, it's already quite an accomplishment.
So just for the heck of it, I decided to just push it even more. At 4.44GHz, I started some benchmarks. Prime95 is chewing along nicely, completing more than 8Hrs+ of stability. Overnight 3DMark01 is completed as well. I even tried running Aquamark03, 3DMark03, 3DMark05, 3DMark06 as well as PCMark02, PCMark04, and PCMark05.
I'll try and post up the CPU-Z validation later, I'll post some benchmark scores as well. I'll update this post later on, for now, just click on that image above to see the full image.
