Quick question, is it worth it to get an E2180 over the E2140 or E2160? I plan on using the Abit I35-E and 2 gigs of Corsair XMS for a spare build. Just looking for something to be a bit faster than my current FX-55 single core. I use it for gaming, and burning dvd's etc.

Had to revive this old thing one more time. During forum wars, I decided to push my little chip to insanity (for air cooling anyway). Don't know if the OP will ever be updated, but I can finally say I won!
E4400 @ 3.72GHz (L2 stepping)
OCZ Plat. Rev.2 1Gx2 @ DDR2-930 (372FSB @ 1:1.2 ratio), 5-4-4-15-2T @ 2.2Vdimm
Thermaltake Big Typhoon

Jaysus, that's some O/C Hokie, on air no less. :Q
I lapped my NB and PWM 'sinks this weekend like we talked about @ the Raptor Pit, my temps dropped 5C on each. Those 'sinks were as crooked as a politician.
I've also got a Big Typhoon on the way. I have the exact same chip as yours, but would be happy with 3.0 - 3.2 GHz stable.

Hola, never thought I would see this thread come back but sorry hokie unless its stable its not going in, nice OC though I had no idea you could get that on air.
Will update for smugboy, but I need cooling from Tidusz.
