What CPU (E4300 or E6300) would achieve better performance OC with generic DDR2 533 ram?
E4300. Assuming your RAM only runs @ 533MHz, the E6300 will clock to 1.86GHz(266x7), but the E4300 will clock to 2.4GHZ(266x9). The higher the RAM will go, the more difference there will be between the two.
i.e. @ 266MHz FSB (DDR2-533)
E4300 runs ~533MHz faster.
@ 333MHz FSB (DDR2-667)
E4300 runs ~667MHz faster.
@ 400MHz FSB (DDR2-800)
E4300 runs ~800MHz faster.
So with those 3 examples, the E4300 would perform faster even though it has half the cashe?
