It's a step up but not a great one.

Budget?

Do you think it would run cooler for and would OC to the normal 4ghz or 4.2 ok? i would love to get the other but tiger direct wont let me use the online code for the discount so i would save 20$ and a mail in rebate getting this one. Is my high temps on my processor now due to my mobo or heatsink needing to be replaced? thanks so much you have been great in helping me

It has a 4+2 power phase design , so it will do ok with some mild overclocking with decent cooler.

Better power phase design , will overclock well and be a little cooler.

So I can overclock to 4.0 fine with this one. Im not looking for a huge OC.

Push \ Pull doesn't help EVO temps.
