E8400 worth $60 more than E7200? - Page 3

post #21 of 62
Yes there is a 1k difference, but thats with my e7200 at 3.4Ghz and my video card at stock. Plus you dont know what his overclocks are. Also thats 3dmark 06, when i say there is bearly any difference, im saying that when i looked at the hundreds of results and benchmarks using different programs such as converting videos and shrinking a dvd 9to a dvd4.5 when the e7200 was overclocked at the same speed, the e7200 was only 1-2 seconds behind, which really isn't anything.

If I would have had the extra cash to spend I would probably have gotten the E8400 but I couldn't pass up the 7200 for $119 at microcenter. I'm still in the process of OC'ing mine, I'm up to 3.682ghz @ 1.2275 vcore in bios, 1.21v in windows. My goal is 3.8ghz 24/7 with some nice temps.

Going from 3.621 to 3.682 yesterday increased 3dmark06 score from 16,089 to 16,432! Maybe hitting 3.8 will put me in the 17.5k range.

The E7200 is an E8500 with half the cache and a different IHS. They will overclock about the same. Having 3mb cache per core is nice though.

Liking the E8400 so far...I want to do that 4GHz but probably will have to wait for Asus Maximus Formula MOBO to come back.

Note the specs:
1.3625V
74.1C

On a build I was able to get it prime95 stable for 24hours at 4.05GHz @ 1.34V
I could post at 4.34 w/ 1.3625V.
I sold the computer clocked at 3.8GHz for 24/7 use at 1.32V.
It was on a Gigabyte DS3L.

Honestly, its is a wonderful CPU for the price. The 3MB cache is the only thing that might hold you back, but I dont think it will make too much of a performance decrease, and is not worth $60.

I think it should be with some great cooling, are you going with the Qixmatek or say a TRUE or Tuniq?
