    E6600 or E6750

    I apologise if this question has alreadyt been asked in these forums, and the answer might be out there in Google-land, but I'm lazy....

    I've just bought myself all the components to build a new rig (well, about 3 - 4 weeks ago). Among the components is the Intel E6600, and an Abit IP35 Pro motherboard.

    Now the new Intel CPUs are out, I see that the E6750 runs at 1333Mhz, and is a lot cheaper than the E6600.

    Here's the question - is it worth selling the E6600 and getting the E6750? I want to start off with the best base-line performance I can get, to last a long time, and also have plenty of overclocking headroom.

    Isn't it about £10 more than the E6750.

    They will pretty much both overclock to the same speeds so there is no advantage to one over the other.

    The motherboard won't have to work as hard to overclock the e6600 so I would say thats the best one to stick with.

    At Scan the E6600 is £134 and the E6750 is £118:

    I know it seems a little silly to talk of changing the 6600 for a 6750, but its not an upgrade, just want to start off on the right foot, if you see what I mean!

    Ah ok there is a bit of money in it.

    I've got two E6600's both very good overclockers. 3.4 is no problem for one and the other i think if i had the HSF to push it would do 3.6 no problem.

    No

    They are the same chips just with different set stock speeds, all the 6850 is is a pretty number for non-overclockers.

    Not quite, the E6750 will be a G0 stepping chip, the E6600 will most likely be a B2.

    If you can reach decent front-side bus speed with your mainboard then I'd take the E6750.

    So you think this guy should sell his perfectly fine e6600 just to get a e6750 that will in no way whatsoever outperform the e6600. (without a mild overclock)

    Thats just insanity and if you are dumb enough to do that then I hold no remorse and will watch Intel laugh all the way to the bank.

    Mis-read the original post, thought he was buying new.

    I wouldn't change now.

    I would not sell an E6600 to buy E6750, from what I've seen with E6750's expect around 3.5GHz which is slightly disappointing considering all the hype surrounding the G0 stepping. I would however sell an E6600 to buy an E6850 which are regularly hitting 4GHz on air.

    Thanks for the advice guys, you confirm what I suspected, but I wanted to make sure!

    I've read that the 6750 could be a dissapointing overclocker...

    Thanks all!
