in tell clocks cooler than AMD from my experance. (heat is bad)
intels overheat a lot, and mine used to get very hot until I got a new cooler
In computer specs you mean in control panel? A lot of the time it's off, who knows why.
what is off?, 478 prescotts do do it aswell
Off meaning it's not particularly accurate. Happens when I overclock sometimes, and even more persistant on my Intel rig. A program called CPUz is more accurate, as well gives more specific information.
AMD socket A = 462 old intell = 478
Bs|ArchaonAnd his is a socket 478 like mine. :p Maybe socket 478 Prescotts do it as well?

like how my machine reports 3.1ghz when it is at 3?
Exactly, sometimes mine is .4 or .5 off!

Yes and I was talking about Ultimate Omen's CPU (which is a socket 478 P4), not the original poster's. Congrats on knowing a few numbers, though...
Ultimate-Omeni might be wrong on this but, doesnt the processor have the ability to lower and raise it's clock based on the load given to it? i've certainly noticed my p4's clock jump to as low as 2.8 when it's idle. then as soon as i start a program, it overclocks itself to 3.16. odd but convenient.
My AMD does that as well. It idels at 1.1ghz then jumps up to 2.2ghz when I run a program or start gaming that needs a lot of power.
