SIS 661fx doesn't support Exxx series proc. and your D820 is already very good, except it generate more heat.
your cheaper and better option will be buying a better cooling system for the cpu coupled with a ram upgrade, which i assume, cheaper than Exxx cost itself thumbup.gif

my option would be, buy a cooler like thermalright or zalman, why? thats the same price or probably half to what youre going to spend for a new E series. The pentium D 8 series is the smithfield core which is suppose to be a good overclocker. Anyways, besides the point, get yourself what i suggested and cool it down, AND enjoy:) hehe

You can also go to garage sale section to buy quality cooler for a low price.No the to waste money to buy a new processor beacuse c2d also generate same amount of heat and you will have to buy new hsf also.

Compatibility error might cause more damage. Just get a better CPU fan.

well alien has a point but he is not correct though about the cooling bit. The Pentium D is warmer than the current C2D due to the higher TDP(Thermal Design Power)

are branded PCs even overclockable in the first place...
most of the mobos that come with branded pcs have special bios that locks the overclocking capability

err.... yes it is..but had to use 3rd party software like clockgen or CPUcool to adjust the FSB on the fly.. i tried CPUCool and had to check the PLL number first on the mobo then only can fine-tune the FSB,,, but since my D820 is a really mad.gif hot chip.. i dare not overclock it more than 3.2Ghz..bcoz of the limits to my mobo n my value rams.... n the stock cooler oso.


thanxz everyone for the advice(s)... yea that's right,, instead of getting too excited with the new Pentium Dual Core E2***, i should get a better cooler for my D820,..right now its idling at 50-52C and full load is around 60's.. im interested with the new Pentium Dual core for its good heat management and the conroe architecture.. but nevermind la.. maybe i should wait a little longer and get a whole new rig instead..
btw, ive checked the garage sale section n have been considering the Arctic Freezer 7 for quite some time,.. so that's it.. ill go for it.


n once again... thanX everyone!!!!!
