Default P4 Prescott @ 6ghz

I've been posting here about upgrades for my PC and I've been told multiple times that the Prescott core isn't very good for OC'ing. Funny I just read in the Maximum PC issue that it's a great overclocker, and just a few minutes ago I came across this: http://www.techspot.com/vb/showthrea...threadid=15725 , a 3.6ghz p4 Prescott OC'd to 6009 Mhz. Holy...freaking...crap.

Yes, but no sprinkles. For every sprinkle i find, i shall KILL you.

it's only not good for ocing if you don't have awesome cooling. Prescotts heat up a lot more than northwood. Kind of like AMD's but those are able to take a greater temperature, they will still be working stable at 60C.
