Lol as I said, they are a lot stupid people around here who thinks they did good move buying mobo with i875/i865 chipset. I was saying here that P4 3.20 runs fine with 533FSB 24x133Mhz, and there is no need for mobo upgrade, but some people are even too stupid or something else. And that's what I did p4 3.2 with ASUS P4T533 RDRAM PC1066-32bit 533FSB 24x133MHz and that's the max supported CPU for all P4 533FSB boards. Nut marketing B.S. haven't said that P4 3.2 support 533 FSB, actually they just put 800FSB ( not mentioned 533FSB) My system is a dream, performance is equal or even better in some situations. My next system will be after releasing Longhorn. In meantime AMD and INTEL will suck money of people for almost nothing.

I don't regret getting the canterwood. It produced a performance increase over my older 845PE motherboard. That's all I was really counting on... Using the Prescott with it would've been nice and I am a little upset about this but at the same time I don't think you're stupid for buying a springdale/canterwood.

Oh, and I am still using a 533fsb processor. It's the dual channel config that gave me a performance boost.

Heh thats the kick in the butt I got when I bought the Athlon700 when it first came out, then they went to socket, so I couldnt really upgrade without changing the motherboard :fu:

My Gigabyte 8KNXP supports the new spec so I can run Prescotts :D .

i didnt buy my board to run the prescotts... i bought it for its overclocking capabalities, its great support, and for its load of features as well as an 800mhz fsb. i dont care if this mobo gets phased out. first generation is gonna be so expensive anyways its not even worth getting it till a few months

I still think i865 is not a bad choice.
