Re: Can I Do Better Than This? (UK) New Build With £520
I've got my e6550 upto 3.33 without any volt increase.
I could not get the fsb past 490.
And in order for me to have it at 3.43(my max possible) i had to increase my ram timings and increase the volts.
And for a 100mhz increase all that isnt worth it, so i just left it at 3.33 ghz.
And westy, its up to you, i was just giving you some money saving tips...but its your build.
The e2180 has got M0 stepping, which i think is better than G0, so thats what makes it overclocking potential so high.
But the e6550 is a great choice if you wanna get to around 3.0 ghz.
----BTW, i have my e6550 with the Tuniq Tower 120.
