    Anywhere still sell these

    Or are they discontinued...

    Also what would be an alternative to it? looking mainly at cache size and price, say £100

    As i recently did an Uh Oh and sold my Q6600!!!!!!!!! well needed the money seen as febuary is upon us...well we all know of that special date in febaury don't we!

    Cheers for any help lads...and ladies if there be any lol

    http://www.scan.co.uk/Products/Intel...tiplier-Retail E7400, faster clock speed, 1mb less cache, should be good and overclock more!

    It's 4.98*

    Re: E6600

    Very much discontinued. E5*00 pentium dual cores are pretty much what the E6600 was but 45nm.

    E7*00 are nice up in cache size.

    I'd get the E5400 if it's still around £70 but the E5200 will clock to 3.0GHz and above anyway.

    I was thinking of that one, not sure though

    I feel it a sin to leave a CPU at stock!

    The best bet IMHO is to get an E5200 and overclock it!! With a 800mhz FSB and a 12.5x multiplier you should get to 3ghz+ easily!!

    It also costs under £60 from Scan:

    Im not a multiplier overclocker, i prefer to up the fsb, and its stock fsb is only 800mhz quad pumped so thats only 200mhz!

    ????????

    This is what I am implying in the first place!!

    I overclocked my E4300 for example from 1.8ghz to 3.1ghz by simply increasing the FSB from 800mhz(4x200mhz) to 1380mhz(4 x 345mhz) and this was on a 975X motherboard.
