Awhile ago and really not that long, Intel did not support, condone or even appreciate the overclocker, but things inevitably change when it effects sales. Intel realizing that the overclocker and enthusiast were the users that were actually keeping the industry alive and have changed their entire perspective and attitude in a very positive way. Intel has proved that even Old dogs can learn new tricks!

Intel actually has added subtle changes to their BIOS that enables and actually supports overclocking. You can manually adjust many of the settings that relate to stable overclocking, such as voltage, FSB and memory timings as well as the CPU multiplier. You can also monitor the system fan speeds and temperatures.We were able to easily increase the CPU multiplier from 8 to 10 and score a stable 4.0GHz with timings of 10X400, which means the FSB remained at 400 and only the CPU multiplier equation changed.

This was a completely stable and completely brainless overclock, without the use of any of the added features such as increased voltage and memory settings, this was as straight ahead as it gets. We were very surprised at this and when we get more time we will go back to it and try to gain an even higher score with all the voltages and FSB speeds increased. As is 4.0 right off the bat without any effort is a very solid start. I am sure that with future BIOS updates the features set will improve and offer even more stability.
