    I have one of these cpu's and its a very poor clocker. I could only get the fsb up to 180. About a 100mhz increase which I couldn't even notice the difference with. I might have been unlucky and others might clock better but from what I've read a lot of these are poor clockers.

    I doubt you would be able to match the speed of the 3200 64 with this chip as the 3200 64 has double the cache.
