    Playing around a bit with overclocking my E5200 today, since I read it does it easily.

    So far, I'm up to 3.13 GHz w/ FSB of 250 MHz on the stock cooler, and I'm staying right around 100 degrees F (38 C) with no stability issues as of yet. I'm thinking I can get to at least 3.25 with the stock cooler and no issues, but I'm going to run it where it is for a while before I go any higher.

    Anyone have any experience overclocking this CPU? I've heard of people getting it up to 4 GHz with aftermarket air cooling.

    3.25 is stable and cool, tempting to push it a little further.

    If you realy want to overclock it get some decent cooling like the Coolermaster V8 and go to about 4GHz maybe 4.25GHz
