Re: And so I read the label with a profound sadness...
Why can't you just return it to whoever sold it to you and ask for another one?
Having just gone from a b3 to a g0, I can tell you it's WELL worth it...and the B3 I had was an amazing clocked (did 3.8ghz but was roasty toasty as **** even on water).
I just got my g0 this morning, set it to 1.525v and 430fsb and so far it's SMP folding stable. I swear, I haven't had an ounce of trouble overclocking a single Core 2 processor.
I can't seem to get it stable at 4ghz though, I'm thinking my mobo might not be up to it as it's a bit old, and not meant for quads in the first place. Then again, 99% of the 4ghz clocks I see are using 1.6+ volts, and I don't really want to run that on a daily basis.
