This joke will be hilarious when you overclock it 100%

The Celeron lineup probably has the best price:performance ratio. Be sure to post up some benchmarks when you get the chip!

Probably would be a great CPU for somebody out there -- I'd like to know what you get out of it too!

Yeah that should OC like wild :D

Keep us posted.

Actually, if it wasn't for the little L2 cache it has, it'd be not bad OCed.

Budget gamer CPU :)

A Celly is amazing for oc'ing... check out those numbers: The World Record Database - XtremeSystems Forums. As for cheap CPUs, WankerFx and I played with the E2140 and the results were amazing! http://www.hardwarecanucks.com/forum...g-amazing.html

who would've ever thought we'd see the day we'd be talking about a 'dual celery'!

makes me wonder how quickly AMD will come out with a triple Sempr0n!

Whoa. Such a small HSF means almost no heat! Slap that STD HSF on that Celly and have fun! Unless it's going under water...
