Microsoft’s PatchGuard technology, scheduled for inclusion in the 64-bit version of Windows Vista, has caused a furor from certain antivirus vendors, who charged that Microsoft was gaining an “unfair advantage” by not allowing them unfettered access to the kernel.

Now, security firm Authentium is claiming that they have cracked PatchGuard, and will use the technique to disable the protection, install the kernel patches that come with their own software, and then restore PatchGuard once the installation is complete. Authentium's claims have not yet been independently confirmed at this time.

sorry to say this, but although there may not be a lot of difference performance wise, those chipsets are very FSB limited when it comes to overclocking

what impact will that have on my OC?

Saw a review on an E6600 ...on the old NF4 deluxe board...was running at 3.3ghz.

Surely that is high enough...

My definition of 'high enough' is, "Now you see me... now you don't... and you never will again." <--Too fast! Gotta jump back, gonna kiss myself... (smooch!) HEYYYYYYY!!:D
