I was looking at getting the 2400+ XP-M... not one of the higher ones. They just look to me like there's not much of a difference.

not really a difference, i mean the 2600+ is only a couple bucks more. and they will both reach 2.4-2.5GHz pretty easy if there good. your decision.

Yea well I put the 2400+ XP-M on the ChristmasList, and my dad loves computers also. I'm pretty sure he's getting me that. Plus most of the reviews I read were for the 2400 XP-M... and it doesn't make sense to me to waste money on the same thing when it's a finished product.

Ive heard that that chip can o/c to the 3500 speeds.
haha yea I still pray that it comes with a good BIOS...

actually the stuff just arrived

actually lazerman I think both Leonidas and 4W4K3 have the 2600+ XP-M and I believe they can both OC at the same speeds I can but with less voltage, so you MIGHT want to go with that, but hell every chip is different so I can't guarantee anything anyway. Just saying, but without me myself getting a 2600+ XP-M I won't really know plus perhaps when I get better RAM I'll be able to OC better, but it seems it's

2.5GHz - 1.875Vcore
2.6GHz- 1.95
2.7GHz - 2.05
2.8GHz - ???

I got 2.8GHz to boot once, but I don't recall the Vcore, but I know it'd probably have to be 2.1, I don't know if I can get that prime95 stable, I'm damn near tempted to try right now but that's soooo much damn Vcore and I REALLY can't afford to lose a chip right now.

true nubius, thats fair enough not wanting to loose that cpu, but it can probably take it (dont hold me to that) i would go for it, imagine an Athlon at 2.8Ghz imagine the braggin rights...

first off he said he didnt want to overclock why i was suggesting the 2800+ over the mobile... and the 640x480 thing was just explaining that the processor is the "limiting reactant" so to say in only really low resolutions.

also i never said the regular 6600 was bad just suggested the GT

Well I tried it lol, I could get it to boot and hell was even talking to Leonidas with 165x17 = 2.805GHZ with a Vcore of 2.1 it would boot, but upon trying to run prime95 it'd freeze, temps weren't bad at all, in the 30's Celsius so that's not a problem, it's probably the RAM for one thing that's holding me back, and possibly the CPU, I restarted the comp after it froze and was in the BIOS after changing it to 2.225 Vcore to see if prime95 would at all run and just error instead of freezing and while in the BIOS it shut down with a beep I hadn't heard before. With a prayer and shakey hands I reset my CMOS and all was well whew close one, thought I killed it this time, so I set it back to 186x14 for 2.604GHz at 1.975 which is completely prime95 stable, but whatever I GOT 2.8 KINDA!
