I do need more SATA ports though and I am curious as to how fast I can run this chip with my tuniq cooler. I think 3.6GHz should be easily attainable with good voltage regulation.
that would be quite a feat on an E2xxx chip i think 3.6 is doable but unless very good cooling and extreme voltages come into play id say you might not get alot more out of it other than 3.4-3.6 with a new board because or simply going to be hitting the cips limits by then.
