We've been seeing the Mobile Barton XP's and their high overclocking potential for some months now.  But maybe you have an MPX sitting around that could use a serious refresh without a big investment.  In our Forums, Caprid shows the details of setting up these wonderfully flexible CPUs to make a powerful workstation running 2 x 2600 Mhz.  

Quote: "With the new 'CG' stepping of the FX53 and the newer A64s, 2.5 -2.6Ghz on air isn't uncommon, the same holds true for the Mobile Athlon XP. But will they run in SMP on the Dually?

Hardocp has a Prescott review that you may want to check out, looks like it might be a runner after all.  Surprisingly enough, in spite of the heat worries, the 2.4A turns out to be a good overclocker.  However, if you go shopping, better be sure of what you are buying. 

Quote: "...What you see above is a 900MHz stock overclock...So all in all, our stock OC numbers should represent what just about any enthusiast should be able to accomplish with the right motherboard and the right temperature conditions.

HardOCP Overclocks the Intel 2.4 GHz Prescott to 3.7 GHz

My buddy Kyle at HardOCP posted a quick overclocking test of the 2.4 GHz Prescott processor.  Using just stock cooling and voltages, he was able to get this baby to 3.2 GHz but with some liquid cooling, he was able to get it to 3.7 GHz, which is quite impressive.  Even the temperature numbers seemed better than expected.

Quite frankly, we were expecting to have to get out the fire extinguisher, but that was not even close to the case.
