That's what I thought at first, but it's a bunch of bullocks. Did you notice that the L2 e4300's were getting crappy temps while the M0's were running great?

Yeah...well that's because their TJmax's were different, but coretemp, everest, and the rest didn't do anything about that. Not until Realtemp came out did I realize this. I was loading at 50c on stock with a tuniq in Coretemp, but with realtemp I was at a reasonable 35c.

Back to the question though...can anyone who recently bought a chip say anything about the bad overclocks? Maybe I'll convince linskingdom to sell me his golden chip.

i would say put a bit more in and for for the E2220. stock clock is 2.4Ghz and my mate got his to 3.5Ghz easy. My E2180 took the P155. i couldn't get it passed 3.00Ghz cause it would just not stablize
