Let me say this, going from a Pentium D to an e7200 is going to knock you out of your chair. lol

OK, I know I'm a bit late, but oh well.

That 667 will almost guaranteed hold your OC back. The Dark P35 can't underclock RAM (at least that I have found) very much, and my DDR2 800 RAM was what held my E8400 back from hitting 4 GHz. Since the E7200 has a lower multiplier, you need even more FSB to get a decent OC, and with 667 RAM, it may be hard to come by.

Best of luck, though.

The E7200 has an extra half multiplier over the E8400, but you're still right...his ram would limit his overclocks.

I know I made this a while ago but I did not wanna make another thread, I just wanna say THANKS SO MUCH. I got everything and I love it all, huge improvements in everything, with no OC at all! I love you guys! Well er... like you guys at an unhealthy level...
Couterstrike: Source Stress Test Before- 120 FPS, After- 135 FPS
I am seeing 200 FPS in places I would usualy see 80 before.

Though I do have one question, I turn on CPUZ and it tells me my CPU is at
1600.0 MHZ, but I sometimes see it jump up while looking at it, does that mean I goes up to 2.53 GHZ when I am not looking?

ROFL....yes! Look away from your computer! It'll magically go up to stock speeds again!

Alright...that was kind of rude and I appologize .

On a more serious note though....that is Intel Speedstep (I do believe is the term). Basically, when sitting there doing nothing, your computer is turning itself down to save on power. When you put a load on it...it goes back up to its proper speed. You'll need to turn that feature off when overclocking...it can cause some SERIOUS headaches when overclocking .

I'm glad to see that you're happy with your new rig . Although seems to me that you should be seeing WAY BIGGER performance increase than you're stating. That's just me though.

I was only asking because my PenD did not do that
What are you suposed to do when your video card has trouble getting in and out of 2D and 3D mode?

That's alright bud . I was just messing around.....didn't mean ANY offense by my previous joking post.

And if your video card really is having issues going from 2D to 3D mode, I'd suggest maybe a re-install of your drivers, or maybe an updated driver. I've NEVER had that happen to me, so I honestly couldn't tell you for sure. But its definitely a driver issue though.
