Best bang for buck E6xxx for watercooling?

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
I am looking for a new CPU to play around with. I was looking at the E8400's or a Q6600, but I am going to wait a little bit before spending $200+ on a CPU. (I kinda want to see if the E8500's have the same voltage issues as the E8400's, if so I am getting a quad)


Anyway, being fairly new to Intel, I have no idea what the really good E6xxx models are. What would you recommend? I am looking to spend $100-$130 or so and wouls consider new and used, so factor that in with your opinion. This is just something to hold me over for a bit with my new DFI mobo and I would like to get a 2nd CPU so i can run my back-up as a folder.

I saw an E6600 used for only 135 shipped in the For Sale section, sounds like a great deal to me .

E6600 is one of the best, and good at OCing, and I heard the stepping for it should all be G0, as well.
