E8500 C0 for E8400 E0? Good swap?

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
I am building a PC for my mom and I think I can finagle a new E8400 into our budget. I bought a used C0 stepping E8500 which I am now running at 4.0Ghz at 1.3200 VID with pencil vdroop mod. I was wondering if I could get the same performance at a lower VID with a new E0 stepping E8400. If I can get 4.0Ghz with lower voltage I am considering giving my mom the E8500 and taking the E0 E8400 for myself. Would this be a good move? If I can't get over 4.0Ghz with the E8400 I think I will be fine, I just want the lowest VID possible and at least 4.0Ghz.

I was going to try to get 4.2Ghz or moar out of my E8500 but I really want to keep the voltage low and I think 1.3200 seems kind of high for 4.0Ghz. I will probably do a mild overclock of 3.6Ghz for my mom's PC even though she does not need it lol.

well if you are going to buy the proc anyway, why not just swap them out and see the results for yourself.

Then if the new one is a better performer, keep it and give your mom's computer the old one.

Overclock them both to 4.00ghz, whichever can achieve it with 24hr stability, with the lower voltage is the one you'll use.

I was hoping people maybe had some personal experience with both of these chips. I guess I could just wait to find out for myself haha.

Whichever you can hit a higher clock on. I can hit 4.1 on mine at my sig vcore and 4.3 at 1.32v after that it takes alot more vcore to hit 4.4 stable.

The E0 will PROBABLY clock higher.

But as you have the chance, see for yourself and try it!
