I've recently been offered an 805D and $200 for mly beloved E6300.<br />
<br />
The 805D has known to overclock to 4Ghz and my motherboard can go 400 FSB no probs. SO this could be chance at an amazing overclock.<br />
<br />
I'm thinking I'll keep the 805D till I can get an QE6400 next year february.<br />
<br />
Suggestions guys?

Keep the E6300 and get the Q6400 next Feburary. A 805D at 4 Ghz would barely outpace a stock E6300, let alone one at 2.8 Ghz.

Isn't that less than the price of an E6300 in Australia? It's $180 USD here.

The E6300 here is $250. The 805D is about $120.

</div>I'd say it's not worth it. The Q6400 will probably be in the $700 AUD range, better to just start saving now. I wouldn't trade an E6300 for a 805D.

E6300 can go up to 4ghz??? Isn't that a bit much? 1.83 -> 4ghz, more than double......<br />
<br />
What if you took that 805 sold it, and bought another e6300? Would you turn a profit?

</div>Yes, but Conroe was the name used for all of the prototypes and whatnot. Like when the Wii used to be called to Revolution, etc. We all just got so used to saying Conroe, it's stuck even when it changed to Core 2 Duo, and Allendale, and Scottsdale, and The Shire...<br />
<br />
We are overclockers, and some of us fear change.

Thats sounds wrong, overclockers would be open to technological changes.

Ok guys I did it.<br />
<br />
I just traded heaps of stuff away.<br />
<br />
My XMS2 ram, my E6300 and my X1950Pro....all gone.<br />
<br />
Those 3 I bought for $800 and sold for $600.<br />
<br />
BUT, I got the three components in my system specs.<br />
<br />
Thanx for the ideas, but the offer was too good. Lets see what this smithfield when paired with a 965P can do eh?<br />
<br />
Lets hope it runs 333 x 15...

The 805 runs on a 133fsb, in order for you to even see it at 4.0ghz, you need to get it to 200fsb which it can be done with a good WC system or something like a TT120 or BT.<br><br>
So 333fsbx15.......only in your dreams, the 805 is stuck at x20. But if you get it to 4.0ghz which it can be done, it's going to be fash enough, not a Core 2 Duo but just good.

the 805 hits 4 GZ easy, especially if your experienced<br><br>
the $200 could go to some cooling and lots of pocket cash

OK, so far I have gotten the 805D to 3.92 Ghz.<br />
<br />
The load temp however is 63C. Vcore bump is 0.1625. Is this too high?
