3.2EE vs 3.4E

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
I'm just curious if that L3 2mb cache is worthwhile. I have a chance to get that 3.2EE brand new outta the box on the cheap (just shy of $300) and i've been contemplating upgrading my cpu. Is the Extreme Edition as Extreme as they'd hype it to be?

Yes IMO the Extreme Edition will benefit you alot more because of its lager Cache. Plus at that price thats a bargain.

Forgot to ask this as well....Do any of you know the overclocking ability? My current prescott i have stable at 700mhz over, but this 3.2EE from what i've read so far is on a modified northwood core based off prescott *if that makes sense* lol. So would i be able to OC that up to or past 4ghz ya think?

Thanks for opinions and speculations

With the right cooling and hardware 4Ghz is always a possibility

The Pentium 3.2EE is based on the Gallatin core which is actually a Xeon core. On average it seems to overclock slightly better than equivalent Northwood Pentium 4's but will probably not reach as high a "MHz" as a Prescott chip. Not that it matters though, the 2MB of L3 cache should make up for the speed difference.

Forget 4 GHz, that would be a stretch even on phase. I think a good number to aim for is 3.6ish GHz.

Well with the Cache that gives you a slight advantage aswel as it haves a good core which is the Gallitan or something like that..Just make sure you have very sufficient cooling.

Since you are getting these for about 300$ It is really worth the price and it based apon xeon core which are great performer's. But for overclocking I go with the man above. Since Xeon are meant for sever's most likely won't like to be OC.
Maybe some oc but not 4Ghz

yeah.. my clan leader has one of those and hell does it make a lot of heat. i would actually reccomend atleast some decent WC, if not some other crazy cooling stuff like that NIC/peltier stuff, or even phase change. These things are bonfires in computers.
