Wait a sec, the CPU-Z ss says the e2140 is a Conroe?

Yea CPU-Z will only show what it's programmed to show, it doesn't mean the chip is really a Conroe. It needs to be updated to reflect new CPUs.

what version of CPU-Z are yo using, I hear some versions are dodgy regarding those CPUs, adding 300-400 MHz onto the speed

lol that is one funny comment. Look at the FSB and Multiplier and calculate the speed yourself. besides, look at OCCT also.

Update: Well, i tested at 3.2ghz with 1.35v and it is stable with dual superpi but when i ran OCCT, the temperature went up to 80c so i need to wait for the pump to come...

Here is a pretty decent review of these E21xx series processors done over at X-bit Labs...includes comparisons with the E4300, some of the previous Intel dual cores and some of the AMD dual cores, as well.

Testbed details:

CPUs:
AMD Athlon 64 X2 3800+ (Socket AM2, 2.0GHz, 2x512KB L2, Windsor);
AMD Athlon 64 X2 3600+ (Socket AM2, 1.9GHz, 2x512KB L2, Brisabane);
Intel Core 2 Duo E4300 (LGA775, 1.8GHz, 800MHz FSB, 2MB L2, Allendale);
Intel Pentium D 935 (LGA775, 3.2GHz, 800MHz FSB, 2x2MB L2, Presler);
Intel Pentium D 925 (LGA775, 3.0GHz, 800MHz FSB, 2x2MB L2, Presler);
Intel Pentium E2160 (LGA775, 1.8GHz, 800MHz FSB, 1MB L2, Conroe-1M);
Intel Pentium E2160 (LGA775, 1.6GHz, 800MHz FSB, 1MB L2, Conroe-1M).

Mainboards:
ASUS M2N32-SLI Deluxe (Socket AM2, NVIDIA nForce 590 SLI);
ASUS P5K Deluxe (LGA775, Intel P35);

Memory: 2048MB DDR2-800 SDRAM (Mushkin XP2-6400PRO, 2 x 1024 MB, DDR2-800, 4-4-4-12);

Nice overclock for the money.

Edit:
So that there is no misunderstanding about my "for the money" comment...I think that these cpus are great value and I'm all for that, after all, overclocking is not, for the bulk of us, about having a WR at CAS 3 or the highest FSB for an i965 chipset, but instead, about getting way more out of our rigs than the manufacturer intended for us to get, and at 3.2GHz, this cpu does exactly just that.

Yup, I'm sold on it. Great overclock regardless of how cheap it is.

what is the world coming to when you can get the performance of a $975 cpu (x6800) with a sub $100 processor :eek:
but imagine if you got a godly x6800 and oc'd it ? that's why i like to go for a better stock chip

Personally I'd rather imagine what I could do with an extra four or five Gs :D.
