What a **** cpu. I tried one - may mainboard ran about 15 degrees hotter. Cpu temp was ridiculous. Here's an article:
Intel bags prescott (http://www.sudhian.com/showdocs.cfm?aid=530)

Upshot is they are moving toward the centrino archetecture. Should put amd out front for awhile but the existing centrinos are very good performers. I have laptop that runs FB very well with a 1.6 centrino and radeon 9200 - plus the battery lasts almost five hours!! I'm very happy they are getting away from the space heaters.

I can't say I'm surprised. The Prescott's weren't as fast, ran hotter and just didn't deliver the goods.

I'm still using a new Northwood chip that spanked the Prescott.

I'm actually having pretty good luck with my prescott. I just won a contest for 1gb of OCZ3500EB ram with a prescott. Works nice in FB also with the extra bandwidth at 3.9Ghz http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/16x16_smiley-very-happy.gif

Yes Hunter, but aren't you water cooling it? unfortunately, the parts makers have to make parts designed to put up with... well, morons like me for instance! http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/blink.gif All reports I've hear is that on average, the Prescotts are more prone to heating. Still, it would have been good to have that optoin should I decide to water cool my next system.

LOL - Prescott's suck.

I'm running a 2.6c at 3.4 (without water cooling thankyou very much) and 2 gig of ddr 4000. The thing that bugged me about the prescott was how hot it made the board - you'd need water on your chipset too - and major ventage. Also the prescott would not overclock past about 3.0 gig (it was a 2.8) whereas the 2.6c (I've tried three) consistently goes 3.2 with a stock cooler - and 3.4 with the $34 speeze I have on it.

Not much of an overclocker but I'd like to do a bit of testing with it...I'm running a 2.6C on an MSI 865PE Neo2 board with a Thermaltake fan, DDR3200, etc. From what I can see, it'd require bumping the FSB up to overclock the 2.6C...I've got the FSB at 220 NOW (running it at 2.8), how the heck am I gonna get to 3.2????

Thx in advance
