FYI I never asked if it was a good buy, the question is should I install it in my POS mobo.
People just decided they would go another direction with it.

X6800 at nearly half price= good buy

Look at you askin me if I do apps that work hard anyway, then you turn around and tell me Quad prices are comin down.
I don't need nor do I want a Quad

Thank You and Goodbye Stranger
What Mobo are you going to toss it in?

The extreme chips are a total waste of money and always have been, and as for phase it makes no difference.

Using phase on an E6600 or an X6800 will still get you the same results, they are the same architecture in every way. It's just the CPU stepping you need to rely on to get super high clocks.

Wow you sure are a whole-ass
I never realized there were actually E6600 fanboys.
Thank You for opining that you think I wasted my money, though I never even mentioned I want opinions of that sort.

Should I install my X6800 in this board is the question, didn't matter for you though, all you saw was X6800 and jumped at the chance to flame an X6800 owner..G/J

I'm so sorry you didn't have the $ for an X6800 and that you had to settle for the E6700 and x6800's little brother, really I am. You still got a great CPU
though..C2D FTW.

Thank You and Goodbye

how is a quad core for morons?

To make a statement like that makes YOU look like a moron, seeing as imo there is NO reason to buy the X6800 unless you have the cash for an QX6800 when things go muli-threaded

the 6800 IS a better chip, and it DOES overclock better. However the differance does not begin to justify the price differance at retail. If gunion got a good deal on it, I see nothing wrong with him getting one.

i say good buy! if i had the money when i bought my 6600, i would have opted for a 6800. why? it's better. hell, i would have been just fine runnin my good ole P4, i didn't NEED a 6600. but i wanted to upgrade cuz i wanted to get into OCing, and cuz i like to have the best tech in my system. i don't need it, i LIKE it. call it epeen or whatever, but that's what i WANT.

but i'd like to know, too, what are you gonna put it into?

So... Have you tried the 8 or 9 multi with looser RAM timings(like 4-4-4-12 or looser) to see what kind of FSB you can get off that board? Any idea what board you might go with when you do upgrade?
