So, my stuff is supposed to be shipped tomorrow, so I can still change stuff around now.. since tomorrow is also the 22, I can pick the E6550 instead.

The only thing is, I'm planning to overclock it (while sticking with the stock cooler, so I'm expecting 2.8-3.2GHz on the E6420), and the E6550 has a 7x multiplier in contrast to the E6420's 8x multiplier.. that's a difference of 350-500MHz, which is quite formidable


Do you guys think I should get the 6550 despite the lower multiplier?

That's a screen grab from this overclocking review.

"Coolaler, obtained at its disposal not only the engineering model of processor core 2 Duo e6550 (2.33 GHz) with 1333 MHz system bus, but also motherboard on base of chipset Intel x38 in the complete set with ddr-3 memory . However, the processor tests were made on motherboard asus commando with chipset Intel p965.

After increasing Vcore to 1.41 v, the author of experiment was able to overclock the processor core 2 Duo e6550 (2.33 GHz) to 3.85 GHz. The frequency of system system bus in this case was increased to 550 MHz, Multiplier was set to the maximum value 7x."

edit: It's important to note that they achieved that with the assistance of a volt mod, however the P35 chipset will achieve 3.8ghz @ 1.35v without any volt modding assistance.
