Get E6300 or E6400? - Page 3

post #21 of 61
I have been searching through the forums for this topic and have had "O" luck in getting any answers. I am WAY overdue for an upgrade but having 3 kids...blah...blah...you know what I'm talking about.

The thing that attracted me to these chips and ASRock 775Dual-VSTA board is the backwards compatibility with my existing GT6600 AGP card and my 2GIG of Patriot RAM at DDR400/PC3200.

My big question is.....which of these CPU's will be the best overclocker for DDR400 memory.....

Any feedback would be greatly appreciated....I know that many will say to upgrade my memory....but I would like to just upgrade my motherboard and CPU at this time..

I currently am running an overclocked AMD Athlon Mobile XP processor...so I'm sitting at Athlon XP3200 speed right now. I know I'm way behind the times and it would be interesting to see what either of these two chips would bring the performance department compared to my current setup.

THANKS AGAIN from Michigan.

I don't think that board will allow for a heap of overclock...

If you want to see some decent performance out of that specific board, I'd go with the higher multi, and thus the E6400.

Thanks for the reply....yeah...from what I have been reading it looks like the best that people have been able to do is 290-300Mhz....but I think that they are referring to DDR2 RAM.

I think that there may be a few other boards that will accept AGP and DDR memory...and I will look at all options here soon. Just wanted to know what king of OC could be expected from the PC3200/DDR400 memory.....and which chip would be the best.

Sound like the E4300 with the higher Multiplier and the lower front side bus speed may be the best choice for my situation and others that are sitting on several GIGS of DDR RAM.

Anybody with any thoughts drop a REPLY please....I'm sure that there are others out there thinking the same thing I am....

Yes, if you're stuck with that RAM and mobo, then wait for the E4300. The higher multi will allow you to get the best OC.

He always has the good chips too =)

The E6300 he sold me did close to a 100% overclock on water, now at 3.4ghz with only 1.35V.

The Gigabyte DS3 is a bad choice of mobo?
I was planning on getting it...
What does it mean no dividers?
What has dividers?

What mobo would be next best to get? I plan to buy an E6300.
