need comparison help

post #1 of 15
Thread Starter 
HELLO

I'll keep it short , I need to know more about the new Intel prosessor Intel Core 2 Duo E6600, or E6400.

Not long ago I bought an Asus PD5LD2 which can reach 1066 FSB
I put in a Pentium 4 631 which is working just fine.

I wonder what will happen if I put in a Core 2 Duo E6400, which to me little knowledge about porsessors seems to indicate to have a slower clock speed (or doesn;t it) 2.13Ghz compared to the Pentium 631 3.0Ghz, or will in fact the E6400 be faster on this motherboard?

I have 1 GB RAM PC5400 and Ati X1600Pro for video ,

Please advise thank you

I don't think it would even boot up. The fact E6400 is LGA775 does not make it compatible with older chipsets like the i945 you have. C2D needs a new type of power regulators that can be found only on i965 ond some new i975 boards (not all the i975). Anyways, the E6400 totaly demolishes the 631 performance-wise. It is a good upgrade, but I'm affraid you need also a new mobo.

*EDIT Why don't you try getting a PentiumD 930? It's dirty cheap and OCs to 4.0GHz easily, plus no mobo upgrade needed.

Or how about the New Pentium D Pressler 945 which indicates to have 3.4Ghz... !!! Now I'm totally confused, I must have missed some new. Do the new Intel Core 2 Duo's CPU core at individual clocks and the older Pentium D 945 as a total clock, please enlighten

YES howabout that !!!

I saw the Pentium D 945 with 3.4 GHZ , it wouldn't set me back too much , will the board support it?

So which mobo's from ASUS would supprt the Core 2 Duo ??? THen
And why the 2.13 GHZ , why not made faster ?

dont bother upgrading unless its for a c2d , also that pc5400 wont get you a very good overclock, will have to run it at a divider straight away

You can think of it this way. Let's say you have the pentiumD 945 at 3.4 GHz and the E6400 at 2.13GHz, how to compare them? Apart from the tons of reviews from the web I propose a simpler method: Multiply E6400's frequency by2 wich gives 4.26GHz. That's the real performance difference:
-pentuimD 945 - 3.4GHz
-E6400 adjusted - 4.26
The E6400 is far better than the 945, but since your mobo doesn't support the E6400 I would advice you to get the PentiumD 930 or 945 ond OC them at over 4GHz, this way you'll have a similar performance to the stock E6400.

*EDIT A good cheap Conroe E6400 mobo would be this one. It has also crossfire support in case you decide to get another x1600pro to pair them in a dual graphics setup.

I see ASUS' mobo ASUS P5L 1394 Which also has the same chipset as the PD5LD2 !!! i945p if i'm not mistakes, but still you say they won't work , but not because of the chipsets? why then ?

some of the i945 chipsets do work with conroe, i just dont know if that particular board supports it though, just go on the asus website or email them and they will tell you if it supports it or not.

However imo dont bother upgrading unless its to a c2d

Some 945 chipsets actually do support Core 2 Duo. Try using Google to search for some sort of compatibility list. I'm sure it will tell you what processors are supported on the Core 2 Duo.

Gah you beat me to it Mootin
