It should be. I have an E6750 that runs at 3.69GHz 24/7 with good temps. The E6850 has a higher multi, and should be easier to overclock.

However, for $30 more you have an E8400 that probably does over 4.0GHz quite easily...

yeah it should overclock pretty good but I would put the extra 30 bucks and get a e8400. There pretty easy to get to atleast 4.0GHz.

I had a e6850 that would do 3.8ghz on 1.45v and 4.1 on 1.56v. If it doesn't oc well u can prob get at least what u paid for it on ebay.

$150 isn't a bad price, but I also agree on getting the e8400 or even I think the e7200, which has a 9.5 multiplier and lower FSB, crank it up and rock it for the price, and quite possibly have lower temps due to lower voltage!

I would say E7200 they clock higher than a E6850 most people are easily getting 3.8 to 4.0 ghz which is great for a £75 chip ($120)

Take the E7200, much better OCer, lower voltages too which = lower temps. People are hitting 4Ghz with this.
