The Intel E7200 Core 2 Duo is the subject of the latest review which can be found here - http://www.overclock...ws/intel_e7200/.

This dual core processor managed a 1.5GHz overclock - on air. Not a bad deal fro a $120 CPU.

Intel Core 2 Quad Q9550 2.83GHz / ASUS P5Q Deluxe / Patriot Extreme Performance 2GB PC2-9600 DDR2-1200MHz / 2x Seagate ST3160827AS 160GB RAID 1 / Seagate ST31000340AS 1TB

I wouldn't put the 1066 MHz bus speed as a con...it'll allow mediocre boards to overclock that thing nicely!

Regardless of the con it is a legitimate 4GHz chip for 120 bucks

but the degradation could happen over a period of time ya know? I would never run my E8400 at anything over 1.45V for 24/7 use unless it was benching

I have a intel E7200 but ive only got it up to 3.615GHZ.. and it was burning hot by then so i put it back on stock.
Does anyone have any idea what i should set it it on to get a good stable 3.2GHZ? I'm using the stock fan that it came with.

If your using the stock fan I wouldn't really try to push it very far like that. I don't have an E7200 but it's still a wolfdale and wolfdale's tend to not like volts over 1.45 So try to keep it at 1.4 but not with the stock fan. It won't need that much volts to do 3.2GHz. I'd say in the 1.3V area

It's a great chip, im at 3.9Ghz at 1.352V might be unstable since i get jitters in games, still working on it. But nonetheless its a great cpu.

1.66 volts is killing your chip...no questions asked.

I only pushed with air and reasonable volts.

Hi all, I'm new here. Good review.

I have an E7200 with GA-X48T-DQ6 motherboard.

"To get there on this combo required a voltage increase on the northbridge, changing the skew level for the CPU, adjustments the the vtt voltage and of course, an increase on the CPU voltage."

I would really appreciate if you can tell me what settings you used to reach that "nice OC" in your combo combination.

The biggest key for that board is the MCH overvolt. You can start at +.350 but mine needed +.450 if I remember right. Now that board has a Q9300 on it runing 450 FSB.

CPU and memory volts will be what you need. The B and D FSB straps are the most stable on my boards.
