Hardware Upgrade heeft een big ass Socket 370 motherboard comparison gepost. Het deelnemers veld bestaat uit een Abit BM6, Abit ZM6, Epox LX370B, Epox V370B, Freetech P6F100 en Supermicro 370SBA. Hier wat info over de overklokbaarheid van de PPGA Celerons:
Different testers state that the Socket version has an overclockability limit higher than the Slot one; I think the this isnít true due to different reasons at related to overclocking in general:
The CPU core is the same from a technical point of view (Core Deshutes of Mendocino type);
The overclock isnít a perfect science; many factors affect the results of the overclock (independent form the gain rate of the clock frequency);
Every CPUs is different from others with overclock, even if the processors are made during the same working day by the same production line; it is true that the behaviour with overclocking of some CPUs made in a specific production period is, statistically, similar, but it is also true that the behaviour of each is different and in some case very different.
I think that Socket 370 version isnít simpler to cool than Slot 1 one; you can use bigger waster, but you canít act to cool the posterior part of the CPU, which can be done with the Slot 1 version.
