E6600 or E6400? - Page 3

post #21 of 33
I was just in the same situation a few weeks ago. When it came down, I decided to get the 6400 because for 100$ the extra cache is not worth it in my opinion. 400 fsb ddr 667 ocz gold at 800 .1 overvolted ram, cpu is 2 notches above normal, 1.34 in speedfan Speedfan showed 24c at stock and is now at 28c, not bad for 3.2ghz. Intels core temp program shows 45c

maybe a bit offtopic, but would it be wise to wait for kentsfield to be released (price drops??) or should we just buy now?

That would be down to personal choice I would've thought; nobody can tell you how long you want to wait or how much you want to spend.

Look unless your after SuperPi records dont bother...stick with the e6300/e6400. You will be so blazing fast your head will spin and the difference between the chips is strictly bragging rights.

And yes I do own an e6400 too and think very highly of it!

Speedfan dose not show you the correct temps, use TAT it reads directly from the core which has a built in sensor. speedfan will get you in trouble with its faulty readings.

He used Core Temp to though, which gives the same reading and works in the same way as TAT as I understand it.

So this upgrade to a core duo is for gaming? Id put that money towards a better video card or wait a little bit for some better ones to come out. Upgraing to a 6400 to a 3700+ isn't gonna do as much to your fps like a better card would.

Thanks for the suggestions though guys, I get so indecisive and backwards about things.
