the only way to know is to try it. Now go OC that thing

E6300 and E6400 tend to oc higher than the rest, thats why people buy more Allendale than Conroe, because of the best bang per price ratio. Also they don't care about the 2MB or 4MB cache since it only shows up in benchmark only, you can't tell the differences in normal application

heres a big factor on how this chip will perform...download Core temp, install and run, and see what is listed as your vid voltage, if it says 1.23 then you have a good chance on a high OC...if it says 1.32 it prob wont do as well.

ic,thanks for clearing that up for me mikey I always wonder the advantage of 2mb vs. 4mb

I can't until I get the mobo =\\ Is there anyway to tell just by looking at the numbering schemes on the chip or the box itself? Also, on the box, it says the max voltage is 1.35... aren't people going higher than that anyway? Any advice pertaining to that would be great. Also, won't the "vid voltage" be listed in the BIOS?

No thats not the max voltage, the vid is just the startup voltage, The lower the startup vid the less volts youll need to get a high OC, yes just look on the box. What stepping is it, it looks like, from other threads, that if its a week 27 or before it will have a startup vid of 1.32

Well I had already seen that it is a 27B. I didn't know if the 3 numbers after that gave any indication as to what the VID would be

ok guys correct me if im wrong but for one the 6400/6300 are actuallly conroe cores and not the true allendale cores which will be coming out later i believe, i was reading a post and i think it was here on this but i cant remember for the life of me where,

mikey is right on the cache with shorter benches it makes a difference but with longer duration benches it evens out

while the older weeks like the 27 28 29 the b stepping was better on average but with some of the newer cores like the 32 and such i think the a stepping seems to be doing really good

i have scene a few of the 6600 hit close to 4 ghz on air but not stable sstill very impressive if you ask me,

the 6400/6300 are some really good ocers its jsut finding a mobo that can handle the fsb greater tehn 500 and stay stable, not even all the p5b deluxe guys can easily do >500 fsb

I have an e6600 L632A, and my vid voltage is 1.325 ... no wonder it takes 1.336vcore (real) to OC to 3.2ghz... I wonder if I could really hit 3.6ghz @ 1.4vcore like they say for my chip.
