Overclocked E4300/E6300/E6400/E6600. Benchmarks Needed!

Wonder of anyone can help me. I have been having an ongoing debate with a friend regarding which of these represents the best overclockers chip. Now, to be clear, 'best' is a subjective view.

To me, best means the chip that can run stably, over a long term period, at the best benchmark performance. Obviously price plays a factor here- given the top end E6600 is twice as expensive as the low end E4300. But, the E6600 also has double the cache of the others to counter it.

What I have been completely unable to find is a overclocked benchmark test which may help settle the argument. Anybody know of any overclocked benchmark tests? Oh, and we have been arguing around air only tests- so uber watercooled systems dont count :)

If anyone has any references or experiences that may help, I'd appreciate it.

Thanks.

    All procs listed are good overclockers so take your pick.

    Personally I am running an e6400 at 2.8 with no issues. Won't go further because I don't want or need to but could easlily hit 3.2 with a different cooler.

    Nothing like an e6700 for ~$220.
  2. e6300 at 3.337 with ram holding me back.
  3. First Post, Firstime overclocked. Sytem C2D 6400, MB DQ6

    Stable at 3.2 - air cooled, Only voltage change was for Memory.
    Currently at 400 MHz FSB, using multiplier of 6. Only net to change multiplier to 7 (for 2.8), or 8 for 3.2. Do not do games so 2.4 is fine, mainly did it to get 1::1 ration for Memor DDR2 6400

    e6600 @ 3200/1600, worked with stock cooler under 60*c, now with a TT big typhoon :D
  5. Yeah, I idle at 39 but it ramps up pretty high (55-56) when I game. I'll be adding a Freezer Pro 7 shortly and see what I can get.
  6. to me the E6600 seems to be the best overclocker (or maybe just the most widely used in this table:

    Yeah its a ton of numbers :x

    That table is perfect- just what I was looking for. Looking at the data from the latest download;

    Avg CPU MHz
    X6800 Avg Speed 3,679
    X6800 Avg Gain 749
    E6700 Avg Speed 3,532
    E6700 Avg Gain 866
    E6600 Avg Speed 3,439
    E6600 Avg Gain 1,039
    E6400 Avg Speed 3,277
    E6400 Avg Gain 1,147
    E6300 Avg Speed 3,187
    E6300 Avg Gain 1,327

    Very handy. Shame the E4300 numbers arent there...

    Still, E6300 is amazing value (as everyone knows).. E6600 is a sweetspot on price v performance.
  8. There are other factors that inflence overclocking. Those are the mobo - it's quality and I am not talking about the FSB wall. Then there is the PSU and cooling.

    You cant really compare how far and x6800 clocks compared to an E4300 cos the guy using the x6800 has higher quality components than the guy using the E4300.

    Overclocking isn't sure bet so what you will get from it you never know.
  9. I disagree; to push the lower end chips as high as the higher end chips, your gonna have to have a nice motherboard (given the E6300 multiplier is locked at 7) and some swift ram (which can have the timings loosened). The higher-end cpu doesnt require as much pushing to get there- so the components don't have to be as sharp.

    Besides- if you look at the data, the motherboards, etc that have been used are listed. So of course you can compare- especially with this many overclocks as evidence. The lack of a guarantee here is irrelevant.
  10. No problem, I like to keep that table handy for when people give these wild overclocking predictions :wink:
