What is the Best CPU of Socket 775 LGA?

post #1 of 43
Thread Starter 
Well I want to ask which one could I use for now:

Which one is better because I have both of these 2:

Intel Core 2 Quad Q6600 @ 2.40 GHz
OR
Intel Pentium (R) Proeessor E6600 @ 3.06GHz

Thanks you, please tell me because My friend keep saying Intel Core 2 Quad Q6600 is better, I was using Intel Pentium (R) Proeessor E6600 @ 3.06GHz then I changed it to Intel Core 2 Quad Q6600 @ 2.40 GHz, I can get up to 3.00 GHz & that is far I can go now but when I use Intel Pentium (R) Proeessor E6600 @ 3.06GHz & I can go up to little more over 4.00GHz.

Which is way better then these 2 above so I can buy it later.

Thanks you.

Q6600.

The Q6600 is a quad core, the E6600 is a dual core.

For overclocking purposes ONLY, the Pentium E6600 wins.

Because the E6600 can reach higher clock speeds than the Q6600, that means in single threaded apps, it would likely perform slightly better than the Q6600.

However, because the Q6600 is a quad core, when it comes to multi threaded apps, the Q6600 will demolish the E6600.

In other words...Better performer = Q6600.

Thanks you so much for taking your time to reply my thread, I guess I have to switch to E6600 with in few min .

BTW: I had overclocked the E6600 to 4.30GHz, It really laggy my Video Card when I try play my BC2, even it Crash BC2 Game and also when Temp when up to 69c & is that Temp is normal or not?

If you're not using software that takes advantage of more than 2 cores than I'd say stay with the E6600. The quad is only better if you can make proper use of it. It'd serve you better in the long run once new, multi-threaded games come out but I'm still waiting properly.

You should fill in your system specification, it'll help with future threads.
