From what I've read 510Mhz; being so cheap myself I don't have the CPU to find out unless I go get my brother's E6400. I could find out from E2140 using 4:5, but it would only go to 458Mhz.

Above screen shot using SPD auto; no DDR2 voltage increase.

400 CL4 is rated spec, would be worrisome if you needed a volt increase

Good thing is 1.8V; some 400 CL4 requires >1.8V, read specs carefully is needed.

CPU-Z screenie shown is from: TK Memory DDR2 800 U-DIMM 1GB (39 euro) x 2 = €78
indeed very good value for money. Would work better with this AMD AM2 setup, as it likes lower timings more, you really notice a difference, on Intel CL4 or CL5, not much impact

Without voltage bump, this is the best it delivers.
