Are you gonna take it back with you? I built 2 systems while I was over there and burned dvds all night long. I went through 500 blank DVDs during my time over there. I had 2 desktops and one laptop burning DVDs simulainously a few times.

Interesting Story There:
A 4.1 GHz Dual Core at $130 - Can it be True?

The bottom line is that the Athlon FX-60 and the Pentium Extreme Edition 965 have both met their match - there's simply no escaping this conclusion! This is bound to cause lamentation among the elite circle of users who've invested big bucks in their high-end systems, if not outright wailing and rending of garments. The basic stats for this insignificant-seeming budget processor read as follows: Pentium D 805 clocked at 2.66 GHz, equipped with two processor cores both with 64 bit support. At your friendly neighborhood retailer you can pick up this secret weapon for pocket change - right now, for example, it's available at newegg.com for just under $130. We were quite amazed as the first performance figures emerged from our test labs: stable operation was possible at 4.1 GHz, and without even the need for substantial boosts to cooling!


http://www.tomshardware.com/2006/05/10/dual_41_ghz_cores/

Thanx!

NOTE: To achieve 4.1GHz out of the Pentium D 805 stock 2.66 GHz, they had to use watercooling.
BUT, they did take the same Pentium D 805 - 2.66 up to 3.8 GHz, ON AIR, using the Zalman CNPS9500:


The bad news, there's no motherboard in the AGP format that will support this project.

I had mine posting all the way at 4.3ghz but it wouldnt boot into windows without a blue screen. No I have a laptop that i take to and from iraq with an external harddrive full of music. I am 3.8ghz now and will run it at 4.1 once I get back because my case has ports for a water cooling kit. It has holes in the back with rubber stoppers for tubing and that, its a really nice case I recommend it to anyone. It was a real easy install and the cooling is amazing. Its a nice looking case without looking gaudy, I am proud of this system. My videocard came from xfx overclocked, it was the best buy there since I am not a huge gamer and do alot of programming.
I have a screen shot of the post and me in windows with it at 4.0ghz. It ran fine when I was just running alot of programs and that. But when I did stuff at 100% load temps were getting too high so I turned it down from 200mhz fsb to 190mhz and the voltage from 1.62 to 1.5v.

It will be going back with me to ft campbell once I get back in a few months

What motherboard?

AGP?

EDIT: Whoops, is that the system you are running the Pentium D 805 stock 2.66 GHz at 3.8ghz on air listed in your first post?
