    Question Is a E6700 worth teh extra bucks?

    Am of coarse looking at a E6600 Duo as the next part to of my (slowly getting there) new build...

    For an extra (approx) £50 I can get a 6700, any one got one/think that it's worth tthe extra money???

    It depends on how rich you are.

    £50 would probably be better invested in more ram, better graphics/psu/motherboard etc.

    The performance gains won't be noticable for most real world stuff.

    I don't believe it is. There may be some outstanding e6600 parts that do. The lower multiplyer means an even higher Clock speed for the E6600 to get on par with an OCed E6700. However although I chose an E6700, there may be little real work difference with an E6600.
    Try to make each and every day the best it can be.

    It is true sort of I saw a review on 50 e6600 and 6700 the e6700 had a lot less extreme overclockable chips I think it was only 2/50 whilst the e6600 30/50 were extreme overclockable chips. This research is obviously extremely flawed as the chips could be from a certain batch which was particularly easy to overclock or vice versa. But I would never bu an e6700 when an e6700 can easily reach and surpass the speeds

    It depends on the individual CPU, they are all different, and to say that one overclocks better than the other is a bit much.

    The benefit of the E6700 is that it has a 10x multi and if your chip **did** turn out to be a good overclocker, then its possible you could go a bit higher than an E6600 as you wouldnt be stuck with the chipset strap change at 3.6ghz @ 401fsb, it would be @ 4.ghz instead.
