this is just sorta an opinion post that i though ppl should know about. my though on this this is that intel is just using these processors to stop overclocking cuz what they do is they have the same speed but its achieved through a higher fsb and lower multi. i think they labled this as an advantage of having higher fsb which could reduce bottle neck(has been tested and standard e6x00 series isnt much slower then e6x50 series only like a couple percent) but the true reason is to stop overclockers from buyin cheaper cpus and overclocking to more expensive ones. this lower multi in my opinion hinders overclocking very significantly.
