    All of the 6 series core2duos are conroes, the 6300 and 6400 just have 2mb of the cache disabled.

    The 4300 is a true allendale and is a slightly different architecture to the 6 series.

    i did redo the as5 and now its a range from 45-50 no more no less, the setup for the fans is, one 120mm mounted as 3 drive bays(mod!!)leading into one 92 mm wedged between the RAM leading into an arctic freezer 7 pro leading into a 120 mm outtake fan

    My mate has one that idles at 48 tops out at 60...E6600's seem to vary quite a bit.. I wouldn't worry too much about it..and if you do look into lapping it.
