Why is it that everytime a see benchmarks where they were testing both DDR and RDRAM P4s and Athlons...when it comes to overclocking they never show the results of the RDRAM Pentium 4 which is clearly the faster chip? With the Pentium 4/DDR being superior I would love to see the benchmarks with RDRAM. They show all of the other benchmarks with RDRAM. Overclocked, this puppy is a monster! ... ex.x?pg=10

Have you ever tried overclocking a P4 with rdram? It is particularly sensitive to overclocking, memory timing issues or something. Amd rulez!

I have overclocked a P4 1.6Ghz with 2x256 Samsung RDRAM sticks just up to 110MHz FSB (440Mhz clock). Went through the SiSandra 2002 burn-in fine. Will try a little higher tonight, possibly go all the way up to 133MHz FSB. FYI, the Samsung RDRAM seems to be rated at CL 2-2 up to 411Mhz (from system information in SiSandra 2002).
