What is the main difference between these 3 cpus?? is it only the multiplier??

because if so, is it much wiser to buy E2160??

They all run on a 9x multiplier if I remember correctly, the difference is 0.1Ghz I think for each chip. i recommend the E2180, its a beast, On a cheap $20 Zalman cooler I got it stable at 3.4Ghz And its only cripple is the 1mb cache but that only makes a 7-10% difference, hell id take that for the 50-70% price difference

^Has no idea what he's talking about. Please don't spread fud.

OP, Your original assumption is correct, the multiplier is the only variable between them E2160 (1.8Ghz - 9x multi), E2180 (2.0Ghz - 10x multi), E2200 (2.2Ghz - 11x multi). All have identical cache, capabilities, etc.

However, he is right that they are ALL good overclockers (especially with a good cooler).

Get the E2160. Why? The highest you can OC these cpus are around 3.4GHz while staying in the safe zone. 3400MHz/9 = 378MHz fsb, which all mobos and ram can handle, so a higher multiplier is not required at all.

No, it'd be E8200, E8400, E8500, or Q6600?

the 2160 come in an L2 and M0 stepping. the other two are only in M0 stepping. try to get M0 because it's better. If you go with 2160, be sure to check the box to see what stepping you are getting.

so 2160 is 9x, 2180 is 10x and 2200 is 10x is that correct??? in these 3 cpus wich one would be more power efficient when we OC these 3 to 3 ghz??

2200 is 11x
