Overclocking the Intel Pentium D Processor 805

Posted on Tuesday, April 18 2006 @ 2:22 CEST by Thomas De Maesschalck
The Intel Pentium D Processor 805 was silently launched by Intel and many enthusiasts may not have heard about it yet. We recently purchased the retail boxed processor and went right to overclocking it to see how it performs. At 2.66GHz with a 533MHz FSB the processor doesn't sound fast, but come see how it runs at 3.8GHz!

"Legit Reviews was able to go out and purchase the Intel Pentium D Processor 805, a $130 processor, and overclock it to run with the best that Intel has to offer. In terms of overclocking this processor couldn't be any easier to overclock. With no voltage increase required to run 3.8GHz, all that needs really needs to be adjusted is the memory divider and the Front Side Bus (FSB)."
