Gateway today introduced the FX530 Series Desktop PC. Geared towards enthusiasts, the FX530 comes with an Intel Core 2 Duo or Core 2 Extreme processor with ATI RADEON x1950 and x1900 CrossFire Edition Graphics. In addition, the FX530 will support Intel’s next-generation Quad-Core processing technology when available.

"A surprising part of Gateway's announcement is that the Intel Core 2 Extreme X6800 dual-core processor can be ordered overclocked from the factory while retaining the full warranty. However, it is unknown what the clockspeed increase will be, or whether or not the end-user will have any control over clock frequencies." (DailyTech, 2006)

The FX530 Series can be ordered now through Gateway's Direct channels and will begin shipping November 2.

too bad, was hoping it would OC over 4ghz (still a magical number ;) )



Hey every time I buy a Lottery ticket I hope to win the jackpot but I have had 3 tenners this year!!

Seriously though I think 4GHZ is not going to happen unless you use exoctic cooling, mine will do around 3.7GHZ at a real push with good water cooling not fully stable either.

Yeah AIR/WATER won't get you 4ghz anymore, feels like we're playing the old northwood fighting game. Proper TEC, phase, temporary will get you it though.

I can boot up to 3.9, windows stable at 3.8, and dual prime stable at 3.7 w/ 1.55vcore.

Sweet, enjoy it :) I'm waiting for this new beta BIOS that's in the works. NoL told me there's supposed to be something in the works right now but it's under NDA so it's nearly impossible to get ahold of.
