not very. Willamettes were terrible. They were the very first revision of the Pentium 4, which didn't clock very high, and they were Netburst.
A 1.6GHZ Willamette was being outperformed by a 1.2GHZ Pentium 3

yeah but they are still crappy netburst...also a D 805 @ 4.0ghz probably puts out 180+ watts...they are power hungry...very hot, inefficient, pieces of junk IMO

well this thread is about cheap chips that can OC. i know the cedar mills are going for less than $100 and i bet the Pentium D's are too. who cares if they are power hogs and run hot, if all he wants is an impressive OC. just don't expect to break any benchmark records on them.

I had a pentium 530j (3.0 ghz stock) I raised the core barely any (i forget the volts now...) and i could hit 3.5 easy... at 1.5 volts i could hit 4 ghz, but then no matter how much i raise all volts, it wouldnt go a cent over, it even read in everest the max cpu frequency alllowed was 4000mhz

I hit 3.3 on my e4300, I just need better ram and psu.
