With Socket 7 systems your practically not even overclocking. Since even late motherboards need jumpers or DIP switches to set the multiplier, FSB, and core voltage, the board doesnt even know what the rated speed was in the first place. So paying top dollars for an 550MHz part instead of getting a mobile version far cheaper is just pure dick swinging and feeding the OCD monster.
The 570s have been showing very good yeilds and are usually cheaper than the low voltage variants. There have been even a few cases of north of 650mhz on air with some of them. They are imho the most common sense socket 7 performance purchase at the moment. The mod is required though. But It’s not too hard if you follow the guide.
Some people are even upgrading them to liquid metal with a athalon IHS
I think you meant Athlon? Athlons don't have IHSs though, they come with a naked die. Or you meant A64?
Yes, sorry spelled it wrong. Check out the guide, it shows what I'm talking about. Probably Athlon 64, yes.
