Xeons are also typically binned higher and go through stricter QA as they're meant for 24/7 operation.

I think some also are meant to be better at overclocking but I dont know how true that is... I know some of the guys used to use a different chip instead of the 920 D0 but I never bothered trying it out..

Xeon's are binned higher but generally do not come unlocked. I have the LGA775 3360 which is locked at 8.5 multi. But it was running 24/7 for close to three years straight. It's still sitting in the P45 Gigabyte mobo awaiting a new server case ... :handgestures-thumbup:

I kept it stock at 3.2Ghz for most of the time. OC'ed it a bit when I first got it, but as I said, the multiplier was locked at 8.5 so the overclocks weren't much to write home about.

I take it, it wasn't as easy to overclock as some then mate?? That said most of the time now I'd just like a PC to work rather than to break down every 5 minutes due to a crap overclock.. I think I'm getting old mate!! :lol:
