Should I upgrade to an E6400? - Page 3

post #21 of 31
Thread Starter 
Well I finally decided to go with an E6600 instead. Got it for $110 from onelivestarfish. It's already lapped and has gotten up to 3.82GHz with 1.524v. He also said he's run it mostly at 3.6GHz with 1.45v. I'd probably do something in between. Perhaps 3.7GHz.

Good deal. It should be fine as long as the vcore is under 1.5. Just watch out the temp for these B2 chip.

Yeah. Temps shouldn't be a problem since I've got a good heatsink.

E6600 was probably the better choice given its (probably) superior overclocking ability.

You should notice a bit of a difference.

Looking at Toms quad vs dual core comparison, there seemed to be quite a performance increase even after 3.0 ghz.

I fold with my machine a large portion of the day. Anyone have any idea how much of a performance gain I'd get over my E2180 at 3.0GHz? Is the performance gain minimal?

If I'm not going to gain very much performance, I'd probably forget the E6400 and get some of this DDR2 1066 RAM: http://www.newegg.com/product/produc...82E16820231144

I'm trying to decide what I should go with. I just don't want to pass up that good deal on the E6400 if I might get enough of a performance gain out of it.
folding is sensitive to cache size, 6400 only has 2m

Oh. I ended up going with an E6600 instead actually. Thanks for the tip on the quad vs dual core.

Yesterday I ended up selling two of my old video cards, so I decided to go ahead and buy that memory as well. Some have been able to clock it up to over 1200MHz. I may just tighten the timings though and run it at 4-4-4-12 at 1066MHz.
