    How far would you push a core 2?

    i have a puny e2200 but i got pushing it 3.2 at the moment. was just wondering if its worth trying to go any farther on air cooling? anyone out there really push one of these chips?

    how far would you/have you gone?

    If you can use the speed and have the capability to push it harder, then no reason not to. It really is up to you.

    That is a pretty good overclock for those though, not sure what the max would be.
