well i need a processor for my new rig, currently in the making. now i want to be some what in touch with technology and have dual core
so do you think i should save some money with the e4300 or go with the e6300. i heard the e4300 are excellent overclockers, while the e6300 are decent when it comes to overclocking.

so what do you think?

4300 FTW, if you're in this forum we make up the cost difference for OCs... watercool with the savings...

hmm seems more people are going for the 4300. ill check up in the morning to see what the scores are. im most interested in best bang for the buck thing. i want to save some money so i can afford oter parts. but if one thing is more expensive and is 100x better then ill spend a little more

E6300 is just harder to overclock. The E4300 is a better deal.

As long as he gets a good heatsink then OCing it will be quite normal. Well anyway just because of the price difference I would go fr the 4300.

details in spec. could go a lot higher but i'm on intels fan...still a 1GHz overclock though, undervolted too


good chip u picked up there. but i believe that if u raised your fsb in order to hit 3.2 overall clock, that your vcore would have to be raised to possibly 1.4 like my 4300. i never tried overclocking with stock or lower vcore but it seems interesting.

temps are ok at 2.8. 40's idle in TAT and goes to low 50's when loaded. seems high, but is fine considering the default heatsink and compound. i'm sure i'd get 3GHz at less than default voltage and be able to run it ok on default heatsink as its currently a bit cooler round here at the moment. in a heatwave i wouldnt be trying it

so what do you think?

Its hard to recommend one over the other, you haven't provided enough background information. Do you have any of the other components for the build already purchased? If so what mobo? If you've picked up a mobo that can easily oc to 450 fsb I would be inclined to suggest the e6300. However if you have bought or are intent on purchasing a mobo that will struggle to break 400 fsb then clearly you would want a chip with a higher multiplier...

Another thing to consider would be that on average the newer production chips don't seem to OC nearly as well or at least as consistently.

IMHO, I would recommend:
1) As Nasgul suggested wait for the e6x50 series chips and/or 7/22 price drops
2) Maybe consider purchasing an e21x0 chip, If it ocs to 3.0ghz+ great if not sell it on ebay after awhile and pick up a new chip after price drops

just my 2 cents.
