Looking for comparisons of e4400 O.C.'d vs AMD x2's

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
I have a 4600x2 that is not O.C.'d because it just does not O.C. well. I am going to build a e4400 and O.C. it. I just want to get an idea of how it performs when O.C.'d against x2 chips.

Any links or personal opinions welcome.

Thanks in advance

I do a little gaming and that is where I really want to see a performance gain!

seriously get an e4300 they OC BETTER. even though 4400 is slightly faster stock and has a higher multi, MANY people have gotten the 4300's near 3GHz. with the 4400 3GHz is also the highest OC (unless you phase)

and how it performs: 3GHz 4400=3.7GHz AMD=2.8GHz Conroe

approximately.

The E4400 should (if following the trend of the E4300) OC much higher than the X2 and perform quite a bit better at the same speeds.

I have heard that the 4400 can O.C. higher than the 4300?

Am I mistaken?

That depends..

The 4400 has a 10x multi... The 4300 has an 9x multi.. But both are limited to 400fsb.. With the 4300's the higher the multi the more vcore needed.. All the 4400's I have seen oc to the same speeds as the 4300's.. 3Ghz-3.6Ghz.. I saw an E4400 at 4Ghz but that was on phase cooling i think..

All in all the 4400's will oc roughly about the same as the 4300's... The 4400 is a better choice for those who will not oc..

If it were me i would go with 4300.. My E4300 blows away all AMD upto the x2 6000 and that only beat me by a little...

What revision is your board? Also what is the end freq. of your cpu?

400fsb using 8x or 9x?

What speed would I have to get a 4300 to to equal or surpass an x2 5400?
