This is a great article, and i guess i say that because of the results, looks like the E6300 and E6400 are killer chips at stock, but when overclocked they were able to beat the FX62 almost everytime! FX62 performance, for only $183 or you can OC the E6400 for $224 to get X6800 performance, pretty inspiring if you ask me...to top it off, all this is done on stock heatsinks with only slightly increasing the voltage...

They reached 2.59Ghz with the E6300 & 2.88Ghz on the E6400, wouldn't be surprised if they could go higher even,

Really shows the suckage of Pentium Extreme Edition 965.

It is call technology innovation... they will disconnect the P-D EE sooner or later... If you think that shows the suckage of the P-D EE then tell me about the FX-62 :lol:

Nice! 8O

I probably won't be enjoying speeds like that for a long time since I'm going with ATI-AMD. :lol:

oh boy i cant wait to get my little hands on an E6400!

Yes it is really you and really is the same article... :wink:

Uh, X-bit Labs was able to overclock their X6300 to 2.94ghz, on air, on an ASUS P5W DH Deluxe:

did they use stock intel heatsink? if they did then nice, but anyways not everyone will be able to oc to the highest limit, i liked Anand's take on it...

Our goal wasn't to reach the absolute highest overclocks using high end cooling, but rather the maximum stable overclocks easily attainable with a stock Intel heatsink/fan. Undoubtedly we could have reached higher frequencies with more elaborate cooling, but we were more interested in the bare minimum of what was attainable - and we weren't disappointed.


this is the best part of the article, showing that even the average overclocking will be able to have great OCing capability

WOW that is simply amazing...

An E6400 coming close to an X6800

Now heres the question.

Get an E6600, stock cooling, medium PSU, medium case.

Get an E6400, use the extra £70, for better cooling, a better case, and better PSU

What do people think?

Those benchmarks really do show the OC ability of these beasts.

i agrie , the e6400 is a nice chip and to be honest the 6600 is not worth that extra 100, there have been some benches on 2mb vs 4 mb, and the average performance increase is 3.4% in apps and in gaming (in gaming they used the 1900xtx in xfire) and to be honest if someone has that 120 ftp's i doubt that that couple extra fps will change anything :wink:

well as you noticed the e6400 overclocked higher than the e6300, taking this into account i bet the e6600 will overclock even better than these two chips makings its price worth it(giving you better than x6800 performance), but i can't deny the price per performance of getting the cheaper e6400 and better components...

Youre all jumping to the conclusion that retail CPUs will OC as well as engineering sample CPUs. All indications to date are that people with retail Conroes have been getting much poorer OCs.

There should be a flood of retail 6300s tommorow so well just have to wait and see.

The reasons for poor overclocking and Conroe seems to be the memory and motherboard limiting it, not the CPU.
Retail stock air coolers should be good enough to reach 3.4GHz with Conroe, the trick is getting stable memory and motherboard parts to reach that high. Exotic cooling systems like water are for higher clocks or simply to make chip run cooler and you like using water, not because it is necessary.

usually when the product is released to the public its in its final revision therefore delivering better results than previous revisions that hardware sites get there hands on before we do...

What we didn't know previously however was how far we could overclock retail E6300/E6400 CPUs, and furthermore we had no idea what a highly overclocked 2MB Core 2 Duo CPU would perform like. Armed with two B1 stepping Core 2 Duo CPUs, one E6300 and one E6400,


Quote:

The E6300 numbers in this review are a bit higher than in our last review because we are using a B1 stepping E6300, compared to the A1 stepping E6300 used in our previous article. The A1 CPU we used in the last article was a pre-production chip, while the B1 CPUs we're using here today are production CPUs that offer slightly better performance in some cases. All other Core 2 and Core 2 Extreme CPUs in this article are all B1 or later.


get the point, its unlikely we will see lower overclocking ability, these are the same cpus we will be getting...their not "engineering samples" your way of thinking doesn't make sense, intel wouldn't release a new stepping that is inferior to what they were testing with...thats just stupid

I'd love to get an E6300, but that probably ain't gonna happen because I can't even get my currnet crap to work, and I don't know if newegg will refund the money for my 3700+.
July 27, 2006 9:39:40 AM

If the E6300 will actually overclock that well, then it is definetely going to be the best deal out there. Even at stock speeds it is at least as good as the X2 4200+. And for no more than $200, what a steal!
