X6800 or E8400???? - Page 2

post #11 of 25
It depends on if you get a good E8400 was well. I have heard that they don't take kindly to much extra voltage and often times not reach the 3.8-4.0GHz range. Similar things have been posted about the 45nm Quad cores as well.

4GHz on air. Nuff said. E8400
You have a pretty golden chip there though mate, remember that

'E8400 4GHz @ 1.272v'

Not all chips will be able to push 4Ghz with 1.36v yet alone 1.27v, the E8400 is more of a garantee of 3.8Ghz, [Talking performance motherboards, P5K-E, Maximus Xtreme, P5E etc]

alot of people commenting on 8400s and yet do not possess them. I have not seen too many 8400s not make 4.0ghz (at least on XtremeSystems.org). The voltage to get there does vary considerably. However if your inexperienced at overclocking, then I would understand some people not being able to reach 4.0, as 4.0 would certainly require multiple voltage adjustments, as well as the ability to work with RAM dividers. BUT in nearly EVERY application, the 8400 would MOST certainly be faster then an X6800, why would anyone even recommend, in any instance a x6800???

Go for the E8400, its a nice CPU and will overclock nicely, +If your in the UK its pretty much the same price as the E8200 [Though i didnt check if you were in the UK]

I wouldn't trade in an X6800 for an E8400. What's the point? The Extreme chip will clock higher, run at least as fast, and won't require any fancy fooling around and swapping out of coolers, etc.

FYI: E8400 is not 4.0 guaranteed. For instance, mine needs almost 1.2 Vcore to hit 3.24, which is OK for me because I barely need 3.0, but doesn't bode well for its top end.

These aren't really comparable chips. The equivalent of an X6800 is a QX9650 now, which would indeed be an upgrade on the X6800. But that's a thousand clams, which is, frankly, silly.

I do recommend the E8200 if you can get one cheaper than E8400. You can run higher FSB's on these chips. 400x8 is 3.2, which is faster than E8400 at stock.

WOW! the X6800 will clock higher, that was a very ignorant statement, sorry to be so rude, but it was. The X6800 is a DC chip not quad core. You can get your chip to 3.24@1.2V, why are you tellings us that, what does that have anything to do with getting to 4.0ghz
