After careful consideration I have decided to transfer all hardware review activities to a new domain.  I purchased in 2012 and have been working hard to build a new and improved Ninjalane on that domain.  If you are reading this you have reached one of the archived articles, news, projects and/or reviews that were left behind during the site migration. 

Please update your bookmarks and be sure to visit the new and improved Ninjalane at

    Benchmarks - Overclocked

    Overclocking was very straightforward as with most Pentium 4 motherboards with little need for vCore adjustments. The highest stable overclock was 230Mhz, which is also the average FSB limit of this 3.0Ghz Pentium 4.

    The MBA needed to be disabled to attain this overclock so the memory scores are not that much higher than the default speed with MBA enabled.
