    hi guys im going to buy a Intel Pentium 4 805 Dual Core "LGA775 Smithfield" 2.66GHz (533FSB) and either a Gigabyte 8I945GMF (Socket LGA775) PCI-Express Motherboard (MB-050-GI) or a Gigabyte 8I945P-G (Socket LGA775) PCI-Express Motherboard (MB-049-GI). i was wondering if they will be clockable on air...im only looking to get about 3.0ghz outta both cores. cheers guys......(im also lookin at Abit AW8 Intel 955X (Socket 775) PCI-Express Motherboard (MB-083-AB))

    so if you could also tell me which board to go for i'd appreciate it cheers :p

    The abit board overclocks much better than gigabyte boards (well, most of them), heatpipe northbridge cooling (more efficient), looks nice IMO which could be bonus if you have a window, seperate soundcard and only 6 quid more.

    I wont be buying another gigabyte board if I intended to seriously overclock.

    very stable at stock though.
