Hey guys whats goin on?? Thread caught my attention. So im thinking of possibly buying a E5200 and replacing my current E2180. Seems like the only difference between the two is the manufacturing process and 2 MB cache instead or 1MB cache.

I guess my question is do you guys think its a worthwhile upgrade. Im hoping to hit 4ghz with it so that would put me 800mhz over where i am now with the 2180. Thoughts?

@smokinbonz

It would be an upgrade.

I don't think the cache size would make that much of a difference, but being above 3.5ghz would show an improvement.

And, its not like the chips aren't cheap enough. lol $70 e5200 $80 e5300

If you can hit 4ghz it would be an amazing upgrade for you. I wouldn't go into this thinking its gonna happen, but it is possible.

3.75ghz tho seems easy enough for most ppl to get. (I'm not one of those lucky ppl. I have older chip. Takes some volts just to get 3.33. lol)

Coming from an E2140 @ 3.2GHz to my E5200 @ 3.6-3.8GHz I can say it's definitely an upgrade. It's not night and day huge but there's a difference. The general responsiveness in Vista isn't very different. The area I saw the biggest gain was with encoding in DVD Shrink and Handbrake. I also imagine games got an increase in FPS thanks to the extra 1MB of cache since games love cache. If you want I could post some CPU benches comparing the two as I still have the E2140 in a different system (just say the word). Just keep in mind what you can get for a little more. I know Dell has an E8400 for $133 but if you don't want to spend that much the E5200 is a great CPU.

Here's my little contribution to this thread. Keep in mind this is not Orthos or Prime95 stable, at least I have not tested that yet. It's on Windows 7 5057 beta btw and it's short slower than XP 32 bit(super pi times I mean).
It's not on stock cooler, it's a Titan nk-35tz and it's pretty good infact if you take into consideration its price.

Overdue update I just finished installing my TRUE. I took a good portion of this morning and the TRUE, e5200 are now lapped. Temps went from stock 44idle/62load to yate loon + true 33 idle, 53 load. Both were done at 1.36v load under an hour of orthos, 3.36ghz, 320x10.5.

Need to do a washer mod as it wiggles a bit much, probably from being lapped. I will take some pics soon, I would have but I couldn't find the camera. Should have some suicide runs and stable overclock numbers within a few days.

I am just wondering how far I can push the dominators and the 9800GTX+ only to numbers that the system woulb be 100% stable.
Overclocking ! NEED A CASE ! Part 1.
I am looking forward to any reccomendations that you want to make...
Come on guys any ideas ?


P.S. My outcome of this research is that if you don't suppose to overlock
E5200 and you have a card like 9800GTX or better don't buy it. I think a good card for E5200 is something like HD4850, 9600GT and 9800GT. For better cards it would be a bottleneck even if it is overclocked at 3,9GHz.

Do you know which version of Dominators you have?

This card is just as good as the 9800GTX.
