E6600 Overclocked Benchmarks?

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
I'm debating whether I should go with the 6000+ or the E6600, the E6600 will cost about 100 bucks more because of it and the price of a dif. mobo. I am trying to determine how significant the overclocked results will be of the
E6600 over the 6000+.
So, does anyone know where I can find some reviews of an overclocked E6600 or benchmark statistics of it overclocked?

One thing about the E6600 is that you can push it higher than the 6000+ and it runs cooler at stock temps. If you were to go AMD though, you could get a 3600+ and get it to perform just as good or really close as a 6000+

Well I'd rather oc the least I can, while getting the most out of it. I probably wouldn't oc the E6600 until more demanding games came out.

Well your not really going to be able to overclock the 6000+ that much higher than what it is at stock. The E6600 at stock is right on par with the 6000+ at stock so once you start overclocking, the E6600 will dominate the 6000+.

Yeah, but I want to know by how much? I won't even bother ocing the 6000+ it's not even worth it to lose the warranty.

An E6600 can easily be overclocked to 3.15ghz. Mine is 24/7 at these speeds and I use EIST and C1E which allows to run the CPU at 2.10ghz thus saving power and cycles.

If you're on a tight budget? Then don't get the E6600, although on July 22nd the prices will go down a bit, so you may end up saving less right now.

It's more or less the same, except the 6000 is 90nm, the E6600 is 65nm, and the E6600 has 4M L2 cache in contrast of the 6000's 2M L2 cache.

I know how easily it is to oc the E6600, people have achieved over 4 Ghz on air cooling. I just want to see what the performance difference between the
E6600 OC'd (say 3.2-3.4 ghz) compared to 3.0-3.2 ghz 6000+

The E6600 can OC to 3.4 on air with ease. 3.6+ on water.

A E6600 at 3.0 ghz will beat a 6000+ at 3.0 ghz. Personally, I think it's worth it to overclock your cpu even if it means loosing your warrenty.
