Well its about that time of the year I buy a new CPU (Birthday)

Anyway I have about $300 but heres the catch

I dont want a Quad

I wouldnt mind one but I play alot of battefield and CSS and they arent multithreaded

Also everybody and their mom has a q66 and I havent been seeing any outstanding OCs

Just wondering if there are any new or older 775 CPUs that are known to hit high clocks

This will be under my swiftech storm so I will be able to give it 1.55v+

Let me know if you know of any high clockin CPUs

Well hell if that doesn't scream quad core i don't know what will lol! $300, more than enough. Able to handle high voltages, duh q6600!

If not Q6600 then how about a E6850?

notice the 20s Spi1m

I get ~ 15 seconds at the same speed

they run on the allendale cores according to newegg but use the pentium name sense they are bascially the budget c2d. If 4.0 is all you care about go with the 6700 or above but me personally a 100% overclock just gives me more enthusiasm

yeah , this PC isnt going under phase just yet

also I dont want a suicide shot of 4.0 I want that stable

I guess Ill just go with a quad or a 6850
