Which Quad CPU? - Page 3

post #21 of 33
Yeah, unless your trying to keep a chip stable at like 4.4ghz or something, you shouldn't really have heat issues with a LC setup...

A Q6600 at 4Ghz would be more than enough, and still be reasonable on temps.

oh good point...then go with the q6600...thats my next purchase as well

FYI-the xeons are server chips, SUPPOSEDLY cut from a better part of the silicon wafer. All I know is that this little x3210 I have (first cpu I have really overclicked) has a "fudge factor" for people like me who like to take things to the extreme, then fail, then slowly work up to "just slightly less than extreme"

of course, I am an idiot and cant get this thing to 3600 to save my life, does 80 more mhz really make that much of a diff to a computer???

Not a whole lot, however I bet you your chip you are using will get to 3.6 no problem if you have a really good heatsink like the TRUE

The DFI Dk p35 is $40 more, but well worth it.
post #25 of 33
Q9300 isnt really that bad a choice if you have a P35...as long you can get to 500fsb, you can get almost 3.8G...that will be far more than you would get with a 6600 because they run cooler.

Thread Starter 
Looks like I'll have to do some more research on which motherboard. So far its between:
  • DS3L
  • Abit IP35-E
  • DFI DK P35

The DFI p35 will by far give you the most bios options. the abit ip35-e and ds3l will be pretty simple as far as options...

If you are willing to to spend the money I'd go for the DFI. You really can't go wrong with any of the options above as I think they'll all take a quad to 3.6ghz.

(BTW, whats the difference between the DS3 and DS3L?)
Not much.

Pardon me if I'm missing something, but how is the q9300 "overpriced" when it's only $30 more than a q6600? I mean I don't consider that overpriced, but maybe some of you do.

Maybe 'overpriced' isn't the right word. Q9300 comes with 7x multi and 6mb cache, which is half cache of upper 45nm Quad such as Q9450... Also, there is a risk there. We don't know whether Q9300 has the vcore issue as 45nm dual does. With Q6600, around $200, 9x and 6 mb cache and you know it can stand 1.5v.
