    I was wondering since the new Quad Core Xtreme runs at 400mhz FSB if there is a BSEL Mod for all the other Quad and Dual Cores who run the 1333mhz FSB. I ordered myself a Xeon X3350 2.66ghz but have only a Dell maschine and would like to mod it so it can run 3.2ghz not a huge gain because my Q6600 does 3ghz from 2.4ghz but that is beside the point. I know i simply could go buy a new board ect...

    But this might be interessting for me in anyway. So anybody ?

    Well it should be compatible with the Intel Board whats in it. I mean its a G33 Chipset board. Also i m sure Dell has Bios Updates every ones in 1 year. If its not compatible I will end up building a rig for it and sell the Dell.

    you can only raise, not lower them - thats the way it works.

    Even if you did lower it, you'd lose a crapload of MHz off the CPU making it pointless.

    as for raising current models to 400, no ones figured it out yet. Only 200-266 and 266-333 mods have been found.

    I keep the penryn either way a 2.66ghz Penryn somewhat equals or is close to the 3.0ghz Kentsfield. So bottom line the Q6600 G0 will be on sale.
    Edit: i m sure after bios update from 3/18/08 the Inspiron 530 should support wolfdale and penryn cpu's if it will support the Xeon that is a different question but we will find out soon.

    now that i've been linked to that, i'm going to get some conductive paint and mess around myself. lots of people i know are going 775 on boards with no FSB adjustments, so it'd be a helluva boost to say, an E2160 :)

    thanks for that link, i couldnt find anything that good when looking myself.
