Default Intel E2160 @3.6Ghz, 1.6V using Coolermaster GeminII

Well, I have finally got some better cooling, not that the stock coller's to bad. Anyway, Got the @2160 up to 3.6 but can get it any higer due to FSB wall. Anything over 400 FSB and the pc wont boot.

Current settings

400 FSB x 9
Memory running @ 500, 4-4-4-12-2T

I have tried everything. Its running rock stable at 3.6 @1.6V and temps are great 33'C idle and 61'C load.

Just did a Futuremark 06, so can anyone with a high end C2D please compare and comment on the score please...

Nice overclock. 100% is something to be proud of, I think most E21x0 series CPUs run into FSB walls around 400. Mine does 8x400 with 1.43V, but can't go any higher, no matter what amount of voltage I put into it.

My System Specs


Well your CPU score is a bit lower than mine. I get 3227 on my E6600 @ 3.6GHz.
