Tuniq Tower on an E2180 - Page 2

post #11 of 29
GDOME, I want to point out that linskingdom has an older e2180, and therefore he is able to oc that high. I know I'm repeating myself, but I just want to make sure you don't try overclocking it and go "but linskingdom got his to 3.7G.. why won't mine go that high? I got the Tuniq Tower just like he does".

Everyone's been telling me that I should expect to hit a wall at around 3.2G. If you ask me, this is Intel's way of saying "start buying our newer and more expensive CPU's".

Thanks the clarification. Yes. All my e2180 were purchased back to last Sep. and Oct.

I am not so sure why people are saying 3.2ghz is some magical limit. I have been able to clock to 3.3ghz on all of my E2xxx's cpu's and beyond with aftermarket cooling.

Because the newer ones that people are buying right now aren't able to go much faster than 3.2. Notice, I said "much" faster. This means that people shouldn't expect it to go beyond 3.2, because it's possible they may get one from a batch that can only get to like 3.1G. One guy on here has good after market cooling (I forget his name), and he can't get his e2180 to go past 2.8.

Yeah, that's what everyone's been telling me over the past month or so (I joined on February 11th).

I figured that each chip was precisely the same, assuming that the manufacturing process is computerized.
