With that setup I would wait. At that speed your at 1200 fsb so your pretty much inbetween.

If you have the money go for it.

The Penryns are suppose to smoke the C2D's. I read that out of one of the Maximize PC magazines.

They do NOT. Penryn chips will only be marginally faster in multimedia applications thanks to SSE4 and slightly larger L2 Cache. Seriously there will be nothing in it. The only CPU that's going to be a BEHEMOTH is Nehalm.

The new 45mn quads and core 2 duo's aren't even that great really. The quad isn't even a true quad core... just two wolfdales together like the Q6600 is two E6600's together.

Wouldn't the shrink to 45nm reduce the amount of energy needed and therefore reduce the heat, resulting in higher overclocks?

So, Any of you 6600 owners that want to upgrade to my Opty 165, just PM me and we can discuss the cost.
