Dude Im just going to conclude my statement with this last picture.

Wow, very nice. You're making this future decision rather difficult.

While there are plenty of cpu's that can match that clock speed, few other than a 45nm will ever reach it on those vcores.

As stated though, if you cannot hit at least 450mhz FSB, I would go with a 1066mhz cpu instead of a 1333, as overall clock speeds should be higher at a much lower FSB.

That right there is damn good advice. the 8x multiplier on my e6750 totally castrates it.

e6750 are some of the best 65nm clockers

Well like everyone was saying, an E6600 65nm for it's time was one of the best OC'ers,if not THE best.I should know i have one.As for the 45nm's the E8400 seems to be everyone's favorite and for good reason.It all depends though by what you mean by BEST overclocker.If your going to go by how much percentage of an OC a CPU can go then it all depends.An E8400 seems like a good OC'er because you see that magic 4.0Ghz and above and it seems really high but look at it's stock speed of 3.0Ghz.That's only about 35-40% OC while from my experience,my E6600 is stable at 3.802Ghz and that's at least a 60% OC.But the E8400 will blow away a E6600 in terms of performance.So it all depends my friend.I'm gonna stop blabbering now and i hope this helps you.

get the E8400. ive seen verfied pics of 4.7 ghz on air.....

thats so fast....

Wow, I'm really learning a lot here. I thank you all! I'm learning that I should have worded my question so that I could get advice on which cpu out there will overclock the best, but will get me the best performance too. I mean, if I get the e8400, which it looks like I will, and I achieve 4.7GHz, then I'm gonna be the happiest nerd on earth. I think I'd be much happier with an easy 4.0GHz than a tougher 4.0GHz. I really do want to use as little voltage as possible. An OC with over 1.45 vcore doesn't sound very appealing to me, especially with the temperatures that it may get at full load. But not only that, but I can apparently enter at least 500MHz into my bios (well, I enter "2000"), and I didn't try for higher. So, I don't know, maybe the e8400 is my best possible option!

So far, I'm really leaning towards the e8400!

umm dude,
What your leaning to and why your leaning to it contradict so badly,
Your scared of using high voltages right?
The thing is, voltages for the two chips are completely different,
And e8400 @ 1.375, is just like an E6750 @ 1.5 .........................
Please understand, that the number doesnt matter, its the range,
The range of vcore on an e8400 is extremely low, however it can OC alot better in a smaller range,
The E6750 (or any 65nm) can just take higher volts,
Hence, if your scared of burning your chip you should be going for a 65nm that wont burn out if it takes 0.000001v too many
