I just talked my friend into ordering the 90nm chip. He's against overclocking but he doesn't really know anything about computers.

He's going to have the stock heatsink and fan, a decent case and some arctic paste for added chill. I know the stock speed is 1.8ghz but how far do you think it can reach max and how far would be enough for someone like him who pisses himself at the thought of overclocking?

Can it hit 2ghz without a hitch and will it run stable for a good long time?

I talked him into dual channel ram so luckily I won't have to go through that all over again. I'll just leave that as it is.

Thanks.

Yeah it can easily reach 2ghz, assuming the ram he's using is up to the task, if not he could always run it at 5:4 cpu:dram ratio.

My brother has one of these procs, and it easily hit 2.2ghz. With a little bit of persistence it would probably hit 2.4ghz.
