lol you should have seen my face when I heard of Pentium Wolf Dales. At first I thought they were joking, I mean like the word itself is an oxymoron (Pentium Wolf Dale).

But they're right the E5200 is 2.5ghz, 45nm, and has 1MB of L2 Cache. Its like my CPU only it overclocks MUCH better and is faster clock for clock. Wouldn't doubt you can hit 3.2ghz on stock fan with no voltage change. It should be able to go a lot higher though (with better cooling).

Much Higher. I run my e7200 @ 3.4ghz 24.7 on the stock cooler and the e5200 should OC better.

How will it OC any better, its basically the same chip with just less cache.

The E5200 has a lower fsb and a higher multiplier than the E7200 so you don't have to push the mobo as far to get the same clocks as the E7200.
