You can't not overclock C2D chips. It would be a sin not to.

Nice. Are they over-clocked or stock?

Stock, so that's at 2.8 GHz, 1600MHz FSB.

13 seconds for my new E8500. I am running it in the same setup as my last post in this thread but I just selected 10% OC from the BIOS so 3.48GHz - default vcore:

Shuttle SP35P2 Pro Barebones
C2D E8500 (3.16Ghz)
2Gb Corsair XMS2 PC6400
Passive cooled Geforce 8500GT
500Gb Seagate Barracude SATA2 300

I really like this dynamic overclocking option available on this shuttle. It only raises the fsb when there is a demand for it. On idle, it sits at 333x6 (2Ghz) but when I load the CPU, it raises the multiplier to 9.5 and raises the FSB by the amount you set (5, 7, 10, 15, 20, 25%). So, you have the best of both worlds....good power management at idle and more power when needed

You also have the option of overclocking conventionally by hard setting the fsb but I think I'm gonna play a little more and see just how far this dynamic overclocking can go. After all, +25% is a 416 fsb (3.9GHz)!
