Of course it is! The E6400 is in the sweet-spot, I figure...
Only $50 bucks more than E6300, but $105 less than E6600.
I also like the number 'eight' (as in multiplier) but then I'm kinda compulsive that way, heheh.
Anyway, E6300 is bottom-barrel - only the worst-binned chips. And you don't really want a multiplier of only 7 do you?
EDIT: I must edit my sig. The E6400 is here in my hands!
The X6800 is the Top of the line best Silicon (dubbed CONROE XE), The E6700 is the Slightly Less refined Chip version but just as good. So it's Clocked down and Mulitplyer locked. And the E6600 Is the Least refined Chip of the 4mb L2 cache line But not as good Quality as E6700 or the X6800 But it has a fully functioning L2(E6700 and E6600(dubbed CONROE). But the E6400 Is basically the Same chip as the E6600 but with a malfunctioning L2(downgraded to 2mb) and the E6300 is also a E6600 with a Malfunctioning L2(downgraded to 2mb) but it can't handle the same speeds as the E6400 at same processing efficiency so it's just been binned down to last place(E6300 and E6400 Dubbed Allendale). All are (Core 2 Duo) But only the 4mb L2 Have been given the right to be called the Conroe(as it makes it seem in Wikipedia)
Just take a Glance at this Article On "Allendale" over clocking The Budget Core 2 Duo aren’t Conroe’s But cut down versions Codenamed "Allendale" only the 4Mb L2 Cache have been given the right to be Called Conroe’s now. Yes the E6300 and the E6400 Have been Over clocked to 2.5 and 2.8Ghz respectively on small increase of Voltages and low relative CPU temperatures as compared Stock speed temps> in the Other post you’re asking if the Conroe is the E6300, No. I was trying to refer to Conroe In since of the E6600 because it's much easier to over clock a "Conroe" to 3.2 GHz without any voltage or any special cooling techniques. The "Allendale" I’m not exactly sure how much the "Allendale" will be able to stand it at that speed with out a Voltage Bump and a Brand-new Cooling system. To keep it stable and running without problems
Hmmm.. I would'nt know much on RAM's because as you see below I'm currently 2-3 Generations Behind on my Own Hardware. ANd am Running DDR 333 speeds(because my Moboonly runs at 333Mhz ram speeds max, I think Wuzy would be better help on Telling you what to Configure
