E2140 vs Athlon 64 x2 5600+

post #1 of 15
Thread Starter 
Hello, I'm new to AMD cpus and I was wondering if a Athlon 64 x2 5600+ can outperformed an E2140. I know it can on stock speeds(Of course), but at an overclocked speed. I wanted to buy a MSI P6N motherboard off an Overclock member so I can overclock my E2140 etc, but he offered me a M2N Sli + Athlon 64 x2 5600+ and I have a hard time deciding. So yeah, I need some help, and I'm looking forward to your replies.

Thanks!

if I remember correctly that cpu you have there can overclock really well(3.0ghz) with a good motherboard and will probably outperform the x2 5600 I'd say keep looking for a good motherboard such as the P35 motherboards. GL.

The E2140 will outperform it.... if you can get the clocks up beyond 3Ghz. Do keep in mind that the E2140 has half the L2 cache and runs at very low clocks to begin with. Meanwhile the 5600+ would be already up there and easier to OC. The Intel might consume less power though.

Is the MSI P6N Diamond motherboard a good overclocker?

Your best bet would be looking for a board with a P35 or P45 chipset. Personally I'd stay away from that P6N, but others might have good experience with it.

your cpu is clocked at 1.6 right now? 3.0 ghz is a long way to go, you'll need a monster hsf.
Wouldnt it be cheaper just to sell your E2140 and buy an e5700 3ghz?

Getting 3ghz isn't hard at all. They run quite cool, so you don't really have to buy an expensive HSF.

+1. I was running 2.4 GHz on my E2160 at stock volts with stock HSF.

I've seen the E2160 OC'ed @ 3.0GHz (333MHz x 9 @ 1.325V) with a max of 67C max temp. benchmarking for 24 hours at full load. That was with a CoolerMaster Hyper TX2 HSF and OC'ing the RAM. Information may be available on that.

Didn't know the E2160 runs that cool, what's the idle temp of stock?

Is your bus speed locked or just the cpu multiplier?
