Intel has followed the launch of its first mobile Core 2 Extreme processor with a handful of desktop CPUs that support the chip giant's 1333MHz frontside bus upgrade.

1333 - just a con?

ok, it gets hot but has been running OCd now since xmas and is very stable - an easy way to make your 2.4 run at 3ghz :)
i also have one of those nv8800 electric radiators in the case and its all very stable - although the heat coming out the back is like leaving a hairdrier on :)

your comment is a con... just an excuse to blab about some parts you bought and how you got them overclocked and blah blah blah... It reads like a newegg fanboy product "review"....
The point is that Intel is certifying its components to run at the rated FSB speed of 1333.
cold weather OC
I hope to run one of these outside this coming winter...I wonder if I can OC it to 5+ ghz or so when it is -40 F outside. If I leave it outside I won't get condensation and I will try running it without any fans. I will the HD and other drives inside though! Nothing else to do when it is super cold outside! About half of the year is less then -15 F so who knows.
