Been playing with CPU's in my Shuttle Zen. The 3.06 does really well. Using PC3200 (DDR400) RAM I'm able to run the 3.06 @ 3.4 using the BIOS overclock feature; frontside bus @ max overclock of 15mhz or 148mhz total. I've even managed a slight undervolt of 1.5 Vcore with the overclock.

I never could get any of my 200mhz BUS cpu's to overclock in the Zen. I even went so far as to set the ram to DDR266 and it still wouldn't overclock. I got my 2.4B to overclock to 3.0 using the Zen's 166mhz bus, but didn't have enough voltage to get it stable. The Zen caps out at 1.5875 as the max Vcore. Given the Zen's limited OC'ing abilities, the 3.06 is a good way to get a hyperthreaded 3.4 Ghz cpu at half the price.

Nice little boost for folding.
