Newest Batch of E2180's Still Overclocking Well? - Page 3

I am not sure you would really want a 12x multi unless you were able to run ddr2 1000+ , as you would have to lower the multi 3 times to reach its ~FSB limit. That would put the NB just over ~480mhz*4. Using a higher mem speed will help utilize all that NB bandwidth.

Really, the 11x is perfect as you can lower the multi one notch and clock straight to the FSB wall ~330-370mhz.. and still have excellent bandwidth results for your RAM, since your NB is still over a 1:1, running at ~375-415mhz*4. Just my

I just bought an E2180 a couple weeks ago. I'm not sure of the stepping or the batch number but I am running 3.4GHz at 340*10 with 1.488 Volts.

I am now trying to get it to run 3.7GHz but temps seem to be my limiting factor. At 1.52V my temps are 61*C which is too warm for my liking.
