E6400 vs E6420 for a big O.C.

post #1 of 37

Does the extra cache have any effect on max O.C. potential?

No it does not. The higher OC potential has the older stepping of 4300 but the cache is more important than the OCing potential.

You mean the E4300 O.C.'s better than the 64x0's? And O.C. potential, well I would rather get an extra 600mhz than the extra 2mb cache.

>> *sweatdrop* oops sorry. I meant 6400 not 4300. Sorry. Anyway I just tell you what i know. If you want higher OC just go with the older stepping 6400. The newer stepping 6400 has lower OCing potential so be careful what you choose.

anyone else? I would like more than 1 opinion
post #6 of 37
Well here's the best opinion you will get on this matter (ok not the best but) i have an old 6400, got it for ~$235 right when it came out! oc'd to 3.6 (450X9) ON 1.425V PRIME95 STABLE!!!


STABLE AT 4GHz just high temps....i ONLY NEED 1.5VCORE FOR (500X8=4000) my ttbt is not lapped and i think a remount and adding case fans will let me run 4GHz 24/7. right now i run 3.6 GHz 24/7

as for others who have gone beyond me, tons of people with the old 6400's get >3.6GHz with ~1.5V this is higher than a 6600's max usually...

about the 6420? Hardforum's HIGHEST is 3.3, on water and 1.55V

I'm gonna agree that the older e6400's were capable of very good OC's. I could get 3.4Ghz with about 1.35v. I don't know much about how e6420's OC's, but the extra cache they offer might be more of a draw to buy it.

Yes the cahce will create extra heat but its a small price to pay and worth it to go for the extra cache
