This is undoubtedly the best value CPU I've ever come across, a 6-M0 E5200 which cost $115.

Edit: By the way, the chip does 3.125ghz on stock volts.

Nice overclock, this is the first time I have heard or seen an E5200 before.

The M0 stepping also seems to be pretty damn stable.

Nice work :)

Can you post some details (and links to some pics if you can) of your setup?

What cooling are you using (case, HSF etc)

How much stress testing have you done?

EDIT: Forgot to ask about temps too

Thanks for the info mate, appreciate it. I'll be in the market for a new CPU/Mobo/Ram combo sometime soon, will have to shortlist the E5200.

Still trying to work out which is the best CPU to get so I can run 4ghz on air 24/7. Hmmm.

Yeah, those are the obvious choices. Another option might be the e7300 though. There's not much info on them at the moment, but have a look:
