Reaching the magical 1GHz mark

For most reaching the 1GHz mark shouldn't be a problem with the 933MHz. I'm including the most because the processor already runs at 133MHz front side bus, which is considered as Intel's maximum official bus support at this moment. We had success pushing our sample unit as high as 1022MHz (7.0x - 146MHz) using our Asus P3V4X mainboard running on Mushkin High Performance 1.5 PC133 Memory. It successfully posted at 148 (7.0x 148) and at 150MHz (7.0x 150) but stability issues were present.
The Test was performed on the 3DfxCOOL AlphaC-MHO-FAN Using their MPU 3.7 Thermal Compound. However the Intel Stock heatsink will Be enough.
