E5400 or E7500

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
What cpu would be better for overclocking.. An e5400 @ 2.7Ghz or an e7500 @2.93Ghz?
The multiplier is 11 for the c2d and 13.5 for the dual core pentium.
Ps: do not give me other cpu's i'm in tunisia and i ve only found those 2 cpu's on "our ebay"..
Thanks..

E7500 is better among those two
bcz it's better technology i guess

also E7500 will be better bcz of higher FSB and Cathe Memory

E5400 2.70 GHz 2MB L2 800 FSB (13.5x200)
E7500 2.93 GHz 3MB L2 1066 FSB (11.0x266)

What prices are you looking at for the E5400 and E7500? The effects of the extra 1MB L2 varies from app to app. Some may show a negligible difference while others may show significant gains. As for the higher FSB, overclocking your CPU would also increase the FSB.

However, it'll probably be easier to overclock the E5400 due to the higher multiplier. Going to next FSB on both:
E5400: 13.5 x 266 (1066) = 3.60 GHz
E7500: 11.0 x 333 (1333) = 3.66 GHz

In order to reach 4.0 GHz:
E5400: 13.5 x 297
E7500: 11.0 x 364
