Swap e6600 for Q6600 on a P5N32-E SLI plus?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Been thinking about swapping my E6600 out for a Q6600 but was just wondering if it is even worth it with this mobo that i have.Also kinda hesistant to do it because of all the water cooling that i have to take out and put back again(lazy).I've gotten 3.802Ghz stable with this mobo with my E6600 and hopefully i can do the same with the Q6600.I know they're not the same but if i do decide that is what i am aiming for.Specs are on sig.

Would say no, just because the Q6600 is a good chip but is priced pretty high for what you get right now. In most applications an E6600 is just as good, and by the time games used four cores you'll be able to get something faster, cheaper.
