    Hello,

    If anyone has purchased a Mobile XP 2400, 2500 or 2600 from NewEgg in the recent month or two what steppings did the cpu have?

    If they were not very good overclocking steppings then please guide me in the direction to find a XP Mobile with the most sought after overclocking steppings.

    And on a side note, please post the best overclocking steppings for any of the processors above.

    I've ordered 3 Mobile 2400+'s, 2 at 45 watts and 1 at 35w.

    I have to say they all overclock quite well. Mine is one of the 45watts, but I was able to get the 35W one up to about 2.47GHz max which isn't bad at all.

    Mine still has a nice overclock. I can hit around 2.4GHz at a voltage of 1.75 but I don't like to take it above 2.22GHz where I can remain stable at 1.65V.

    The 35W 2400 and 45W 2600 look like the best choices. But when it comes between them and the price at NewEgg it is only $5 more for the 45W 2600. That's really the CPU I have my mind set on.

    Have you or anyone have an idea of what steppings NewEgg has been selling for the 2600 Mobile this month or last month?

    Well mine are at least 3-6 months old. I did order recently the 2600+ Mobile though actually for a friend and I did try to overclock it. Got a decent overclock at 2.3GHz but the voltage needed a huge jump from 1.7 to 1.8 for 2.4GHz so I didn't bother.

    I would take the 35W 2400+, they seem to be the best.
