i say the E4 there the ones with the new steppings. Somewhere on here ppl were talking the E6 were actually 4400+ x2's with one bad core so it was disabled. Thats why the steppings on the E6 ones are the same as the x2

E4 has the new steppings? I've heard about the dual core thing, but i've also heard that it was just a bug fix on the old SD core.

For overclocking, I vote the E4 all the way. Its an exceptionally well overclocker. They have the least ammounts of duds and usually can hit 3.0 ghz.

E4 is better in overclocking from what I've seen. The E6 are the new ones. Made to better handle 4 sticks of ram I believe, and not off set them to ddr333.

So the E6 isnt a manchester with a disabled core? E6 also runs with lower voltage.

It would be a Toledo with a disabled core, not a Manchester. Toledos have 2 * 1MB Cache, Manchesters 2 * 512KB.

Some of the newer E4 seem to be overclocking with reletively low voltage. Around 1.48-1.55v for 2.95-3.0ghz
