    yeah E8400 definitely more powerful, just that E8400 is almost 2.5 times more expensive than E5200 (based on the local pricing here), the price performance ration might not be as good as E5200 though.

    Error 404, i did some testing with my office PC which using E8400 (default 3.0GHz), and compete with my home PC E5200 which OC to 3.45GHz. I tested both with Super PI 1M and 8M. For 1M, E8400 beat E5200 by slightly more than a second with a result of 15.719s. However, 8M result is more...

    error 404, thanks a lot for your recommendation .. i am suspecting that my crappy PSU heat up too easily because of the low efficiency, and the CPU place very near to the CPU & CPU HS (am using Gigabyte G31 board) and though the PSU spread quite a lot of heat to HS and eventually lower the...

    error 404, i am just wondering how you achieve such a cool temperature (your TJMax reading is my temp :( ) I am using CM Hyper TX2 now, with pre-applied paste, what thermal paste you used??

    I am using +0.1v, so the voltage should be 1.9v. so the timing of 5-6-6-21 is weird? what do you suggest? manually adjust the timing in BIOS?? i am very noob on OC

    E5200 OC/BenchMark Thread.(56k warning)

    After much effort, i am now able to lower the peak temp to 65 C after running 2 hours plus of Prime95 (at 256K now, still waiting for it to complete for the 1st time :D) I want to ask about memory timing this time, as i noticed that it is running at weird timing of 5-6-6-21. I am using...

    If budget wise, the Gigabyte G31M board will fit nicely in. It should cost around EUR 40 (based on conversion from my purchase price of MYR 190). I am using this board, and can OC to 3.4GHz with default voltage, and can run stable after hours of gaming (playing Assassin's Creed which is highly...

    I dont want to go any higher until i can lower down my idle temp. It is freaking idle at 42 C if i turn on my air con at temp of 24 C. If i turn off the air condition, idle temp will go as high of 52 C. I guess my cheapskate casing has really really bad air ventilation, if i can successfully...

    Panther, as you can see from the screenshot, my CPu-Z voltage is at 1.20V (0.05V lower than the voltage i set in BIOS). and i set +0.1V for DDR2 and +0.1V for FSB.

    E5200 OC/BenchMark Thread.(56k warning)

    Thanks JR! Yes, i use Real Temp 3.00. (TJ Max set to 100) temp reading is identical with that of Core Temp and Everest. I am running at 3.4GHz (1.25V), and seems like OC does not affect the temp much. So i guess the biggest problem is the poor air ventilation inside case, and also the CPU...

    Medros, again thank you very much for the sharing, very much appreciated. I guess the good air ventilation of Antec 300 does help a lot in reducing temp (i never see any Antec casing around here though). My idle temp is still always at 52 C and peak temp at 72 C, running at 3.4 GHz now...

    are you using stock cooler as well?? mind to share your spec? my temp is like 10 C higher than yours under full load using Prime95 @ 3.0 GHz (240 * 12.5) .. i think it has something to do with the typically hot weather over here .. able to pull the temp down by about 5 C if i turn on air...

    GOOD SPEED!!! but i guess @ 1.72V, the power efficiency might not be optimum though

    E5200 OC/BenchMark Thread.(56k warning)

    In any case, the voltage value set in BIOS will be the accurate one right? I wonder is it possible cause by the OS (Windows XP SP3)? Cause either i set the voltage value as 1.3125 or 1.2500 in BIOS, the value shows in CPU-Z is still remain no change at 1.088. I will try to play with other...
