I think the issue is the FSB overclock of the Foxconn 965 motherboard. The E6850 is already at 333 FSB. What is the max FSB you have on your current E2180? I would take that FSB and the multi of the E6850 to try and figure out what kind of OC you might get.

e7200 is a little worse than a e6750 at stock speeds in gaming, but better than e6550. so with no oc'ing, the e6850 is the best, but just with a FSB of 400, a e7200 is @ 3.8ghz, at the same FSB a e6850 is at 3.6ghz, and the e7200 will pull ahead.

You have to consider the OC ability of the Foxconn 965 chipset. Will it do 400FSB? Thats what the poster needs to tell us.

The only potential problem I see is your 667 ram. The E6850 is stock fsb 333. You may manually set the 667 ram to 1:1 because the default ratio is 2:1.

I ran my E2180 @ 2.8 on the board, anything abve it will lag the system out or either wont boot.

So if you maxed out at 280 FSB with the E2180, it could be that the Foxconn 965 chipset is about maxed. I figured it would max out at 300 FSB. Did you increase the northbridge voltage at all when you increased the FSB?

Nope, none at all, Just the CPU voltage by .05.....Will try incrasing northbridge today.

The default should be 1.25v for the 965 NB, so give 1.35v a try and see how high you can get the FSB. Also look for a FSB voltage or VTT setting. That should be increased to match the NB.
