C2D E4300 3950Mhz on air seems to be well worth the $174.99

no SSE4 instructions on the E4300?

Ho boy... I see where this is going. I'm out.

Nope, only Penryn and its derivatives.

odd, the x6800 seems to have at least some of the instruction set. enough to qualify in CPUz.

so which current C2D's have the SSE4 instructions?
X's do, E's dont???

I was reading somewhere that some of the current C2D's received 15-16 of the SSE4 instructions while Penryn will receive ~50 instructions for SSE4.

Your 3000+ @ 2.5G still rocks :wink: . I've had one myself and they're still pretty decent when OC-ed; you could hit 2.8 if you had my Venice 3000+. Don't worry man, there's even worse; you could be cursed like me with a 3.0G P4 at work :x

Not too sure. Care to post a screencap? I've never seen SSE4 listed under 'instructions' for a X6800 before. What version of CPU-Z do you have? Maybe older versions confuse SSSE3 with SSE4(That's a blind guess)? Check out the CPU-Z validation database, none of the X6800s I see there have SSE4 listed...

Tell me more about it. :lol:

why is the voltage missing from that cpu-z screenshot?
February 6, 2007 4:03:33 PM

CPUz typically has problems with voltage.

So.... when cpuz tells me even though I set the voltage to "1.4" its actually at "1.5"... it might just be bs'ing me?

Correct. I'd also like to know what kind of cooling they were using

Yes, a X2 3600+ is still a great CPU; I got my 4200+ 1 month ago; my board allows me only a miserable 2.45GHz but that's still lot of performance, and in a while, you should be able to upgrade to K10 CPUs, probably kicking even the actual Core2s :wink:

It's highly debatable. Even if K10 has 40% more performance than QX6700, Intel might still be a better buy for overclockers since it will have superior production techniques

Of course, but don't forget that AMD is trying to catch up Intel in process and they had to rush a not yet 100% stable process, which can mature 5-6 months later with the new releases. All this said, Intel will still have IMO the better lithography, so AMD HAS TO puull at least another 400-500MHz if they want to be well in the game.

I notice you are using Baron's pic for your avatar again. Is he your hero again?
February 6, 2007 7:47:58 PM

what... can't even do 4.0 ghz..?

8) 8) 8)

You call your self an overclocker...?

As Jack likes to do, gOJDO is keeping "balance" in the forums. :D  Tit for Tat...if you will. :wink:
February 6, 2007 8:14:32 PM

Bring balance to the Forumz.. that you must.

He had it @ higher frequency in his old sig. but I guess this is the 'stock' overclock :lol:  ; the 24/7 frequency, not the top.

what heatsink fan cooler are you using ?

Oh yeah. I had to change the old one. My hero was bitching about my avatar that it was somehow scary for him.
