If we are just comparing gaming cpu's, then the E8400 cranked at 4.0 or better will be faster, and I doubt very highly that if i put an e8400 in my sys and push it to 4 or better im going to gain 20FPS across the board

Try it, I did, and if you look up reviews, at Q at 3.5 in gaming lost to an e8400 at 4.2

Anyways, you seem very defensive. I'm not bashing the Q but the bold fact is that the e8400 at 4.1ghz and beyond defeats the Q in gaming and nothing that anyone can say will revise that. Facts are facts.

But like i said a billion times over, for load capacity the Q wins 100%.

Either way, the person who started this thread chose to buy an e8400 so I don't see the point in continuing this debate.

If you wanna have benchmarking battles, PM me. We can create a new thread:

"Q6600 G0 vs e8400: The True Gaming Champion".

doesnt seem to be anything left to debate, looks like we agree

If your new to OC'ing, go for the Q6600 - It'll put up with more abuse and give an easier overclock, the E8400 is very sensitive
I don't believe it is too sensitive, out of the box I had it at 4ghz, now I have it running at a stable 4.1ghz. Besides quads aren't really going to give you a huge advantage for gaming anyways.

Well, it seems to me the choice is as clear as mud. Especially with great deals floatin' around; like the Q6600 G0 at Frys.com for $180.00 + shipping. I bought mine last week for $190 + shipping. Which is still a great deal. I primarily chose the Q6600 over the E8400 due to comments by others on this forum. I'm pairing it with an Abit IP35-Pro v1.1. I'm wondering if I should go for the vdroop mod right off the bat, or test it out first. I've heard this board has some vicious vdroop with the quad cores.

The Q6600 will be slower with EVERY PROGRAM than an e8400 at the exact same clock speed unless:
1.) The program takes advantage of more than 2 cores
or
2.) You have other CPU intensive tasks in the background.

The e8400 has a more efficient architecture, making it about 8% faster at most tasks. Period.

If you're playing games most of the time, and not running a bunch of cpu intensive tasks in the background, get the frickin e8400, it is faster even at equal speeds as 95% of games won't use all 4 cores, and it is much easier to get to higher clock speeds.

If you're busy running a bunch of programs all the time, then get the 4-core CPU and call it good.

It is like comparing a 4Ghz P4, to the e8400 at 3Ghz. No contest, period. Clock speed isn't everything, it is about the architecture. So assuming you're not using more than 2-cores, this argument might as well be about an e6600 (not q6600), and an e8400.

I'm not sure why this thread continues, this is a fairly simple concept to grasp......or at least I thought it was. Then again, polls show about half the people on OCN are kids/teens....

It's also the best thread out there for the wohle "e8400 vs q6600" battle.

I forgot to mention, the e8400 boots up faster as well.
