E6850 vs Q6600 - Page 3

post #21 of 32
Thread Starter 
hmm yeah its a tough decision .. leme check the comparing site.

one more thing core 2 duo have 2 cores right, means E6300 has 1.86*2 ? so should it not be 2.4*4 for quad core Q6600? or is it 1.86 and 2.4 combined from 2 and 4 cores ? i hope you get what i mean.

Im kind of in the same boat, only thinking q6600 vs e6750

Im leaning towards q6600 because crysis..first game to really utilize quad core. And hopes for the new G0 stepping to hit around 3.2-3.4ghz

I also am about to make that decision. The thing that I am hoping is that the P5N32-E SLI (680i) boards gets a fix for the OCing of quad cores. If they would commit to that I would grab that board and a Q6600, or at least that board and a E6850 until there are enough reasons to switch to quad core and swap out processors at that point.

Today since it's unknown if the existing 680i boards will get a bios fix to help OC quad cores, I am trying to decide between the following:

eVGA 680i A1 board (can OC quad cores easily I guess) + a q6600
and
Asus P5N32E-SLI board + e6850

The EVGA boards are only marginally better at overclocking quads. The asus board will hit close to 400 FSB with a Q6600. The EVGA (new revision only) can go as high as 440 FSB.

What you need to consider is the cooling necessary to run 9x440 for example. Thats close to 4 ghz, something no one is doing without phase. So is the extra 40 FSB worth it? Only if you can use it.

I'd personally go with the E6850. As I mentioned earlier, hit 4 ghz on good air cooling is definitely a possibility (I can hit close to 4 ghz now with my older stepping X6800 on air).

The quads (Even the new GO stepping) generate proportionately more heat than dual cores. Perhaps in a year when there are many games out the are using quads fully (how many titles make any use now? 3 or 4 tops) the quad will be worth it. 4 Ghz on a dual core will be pretty impressive.

will the .5 GHz you "loose" matter that much with a fast CPU? by the time it does matter, the multi-threaded apps will be making MUCH better use of a Quad Core.

IMO you'd be mad not to

I am going Q6600 all the way with EVGA board and get an OC to 3.0 GHz and that will last me a few years easy.

I dont know where you get your info from, but the 680i's are not a better choice for a Q4. Frankly if you can get anywhere close to 400mhz on a 680i...you deserve a cookie. There are numerous users on this forum, that report the mobo being unstable at higher FSB's using a Q4 cpu, rather than a C2D. There are also, many different methods, for modd'ing the mobo to add stability for a Q4 OC.

i have to run now, but search on this forum for the 'P5NESLi-680i, help thread' in the mobo section. You can see Uslatin's postss regarding this topic, as well as MHill...both who own the 680i and a Q4, and are very dissapointed in the mobo's performance capabilities with the Q4.

As for the P5K, I have had no issues, going all the way up to 490mhz FSB, so far, using my Q4. I am currently running 430mhz FSB @ ~3ghz..sig verified. It is by far the best OC'ing mobo I have yet to lay hands on...even surpassing my P5B-DLX...a much more expensive mobo.

You may consider rereading the thread unless USLatin is disappointed in something he doesn't currently own. Afaik, he is merely researching.

I could have sworn, he had one already...anyways..the 680i's are very good mobo's...just not the best choice for a high FSB OC for a Q4 cpu. Really..check out some of the highest FSB's achieved on a 680i using a Q4...you arent going to find much past 400mhz, let alone 500 or 600mhz, as the P35 chipsets are posting.

I figured the flamers would bite on me 'dumping' on the 680i...its perfectly fine. I would really like to see some posts of 450mhz+ FSB's on one of these mobo's, using a Q4...as I have yet to see any, at all.

VR-zone has many mods for the 680i's as well, to increase the GTLv for increased stability at high FSB's, one of the mobo's "achilies heel's".
