4) CPU Make Model and Speed - Core 2 Duo, T7200, 2 x 2.0 ghz

not that I know if...and since we have a solid benchmark with v5, this is probably the best test...but you're right, this is starting to show its age. Perhaps time for a new benchmark...

CPU meter - 8%

mobo - ASUS M2N32 2Ghz FSB
cpu - AMD AM2 FX-62 dualcore 2.8Ghz (not overclocked yet)
ram - 2GB World Record Geil DDR2 1066/8500 http://geilusa.com/products/showReview/id/70 (not overclocked yet)
drives - 10k rpm 16mb cache Raptors etc etc etc
xp pro/xp lite. Hoping to hit between 2% & 5% cpu usage during the test after overclocks on this particular box. We'll see soon.

Don't forget the liquid nitrogen you'll need to cool that chip :)

Yea, believe me I know... Many gamers have had it up around 3.2 on air & near 3.4 water cooled. I'm only going for a minor bump up to 3.0Ghz which according to the manual, is well within safe tolerances. So hopefully, no China Syndrome.
