A couple questions about architecture, OCing, and heat...

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Does a X2 3800 have different architecture than a X2 4800? (Other than the smaller L2 cache)

If no, then in a sense a X2 3800 OCed to 2.4 would be exactly like a X2 4800 (again ignoring L2)?

Does an OCed 3800 @ 2.4, produce as much heat as a 4800 @ 2.4? Why would it produce more heat?

Sorry I'm kinda a newb, but I can't find answers to these questions.

The added cache does improve the overall performance so at the same speed it would not be a true equal in performance.
The added cache will creat a wee bit more heat though... minimal and unimportant.
Just keep the full load temp @ or below 50 °c.

OH.. yes they are both the same core/architecture

BTW... got you your System Specs vis the "USER CP" @ top of page and fill in your system.

Aside from the cache, the 3800+ would be better because of the higher htt.
