    Its a no brainer - go for the e2180. Those little beasts overclock like crazy, if the bios is locked maybe you could try a software solution like setFSB? You could easily get it to 2.6-2.8 GHz on the stock cooler.

    It's an Acer mobo made by Intel so not really a good overclocker and the bios is locked.

    thats a real shame, I have seen most E2180's get to 3.5Ghz with a decent board and heatsink

    but its still better than that damned P4

    In this case due to the difference in architecture, even single threaded apps on the Pentium Dual core will be very close to the performance of the Pentium 4 evenwith the massive difference in clock. Don't forget the energy savings, better threaded performance, etc.

    KainXS there's a good chance you could just BESL mod overclock the 2180 :3

    Is this a question? :p

    Netburst has been considerbly slower per clock when the core-series architecture came out reducing the pipeline from something like 36 stages down to 14 stages. All in all, it doesn't really matter if you can overclock or not, the E3180 is your best bet. Never go with the netburst chip. :roll:

    Isn't the e2180 way ahead of the 651? I figured it was like comparing a 2180 to an i5.

    The one from my post is only for fsb but there is one for the voltage as well.
    Edit: this is for 1.4 v

    It can but not really the best route to go for a few reasons, such as resistance and probably a few others I'm not thinking about right now.

    It is my first time doing pen mod so I prefer to try with something i already got here instead of ordering a 20$ pencil over the net.
