i am confused whether to get the 6750 or the 6600. of course i am into overclocking.

currently i can oc my 4300 to 3.2ghz very stable. Will it make a big difference to switch to 6750?

More about : e6750 6600

If your into overclocking then go for the E6750 as the stepping (G0) give better OC. If I had it to do all over again I'd go E6750 instead of the E6600.

but would it really be an upgrade considering that i oc the 4300 to 3.2 ghz(oc limit due to mobo problem or fsb wall or somethin i didn't figure). I mean that the 4mb l2 of 6750 - if both processors are oced to the same extent -would it make a difference of more than 8-10% in overall fps? or rather even a diff or 5% or more for minimum fps?

6750 running @ 3.7Ghz and still very stable!

For games, the extra cache gives the E6750/6600 an approximate 200MHz worth of extra performance over the E4300 at the same clock speed. Not alot considering the price difference. If you have the money to spend on an E6600, go for the Q6600 instead, since it's only slightly more expensive. As for the E6750, it is cheaper and a better OCer than the E6600. If you really want a dual core, the E6850 is about the same price as a Q6600.

here 6750 and 6600 are almost for the same price. 6850 is more expensive than the q6600 but the preice diff between the q6600 and e6600 is big. i have the budget now to get either a 6750 or a 6600. if i get a 6750; will it help me increase fps by atleast 10% in games like dirt etc. I have a gtx.

4300 oces to 3.2 ghz on my current xfx 680i lt board. should i keep it or switch to a 6750
September 9, 2007 9:50:04 AM

also i will be changing the board to this one pref:
Biostar TP35D2-A7 ; p35 chipset

http://www.biostar.com.tw/app/en-us/t-series/content.ph...

What do u experts/ocing guys suggest? Should i try on the new board first whether i can oc the 4300 to something like 3.4 ghz - if it does then keep it? or should i switch to the 6750? (no q6600 now, 6850 costs nearly double here, only 6600 or 6750 for me now)

also a little detailed question - would the extra 4mb help in increasing the minimum fps as much as it does for the average/max fps? i.e., the % gained from the 4mb in average/max fps -would it equal to the gain in % in minimum fps?

seems a bit tricky but i have been pulling my hair over it

You could look up some benchmarks on the E4300 as they will likely compare it with the E6600. Since the E6600 and the E6750 are nearly the same price, get the 6750 because as systemlord said, it will OC better (in theory, nothing is guaranteed). Might as well try out and see how the E4300 goes on the 680i, you might (if you are game) like to try out the E4300 pin mod and see if it helps your overclock at all, just reset everything to default first then go from there.

thanks for ur help friend, but for now, i am not game for the 4300 pin mod. will tthe p35 and the 6750 will make a diff over this setup of 4300 and the 680i lt?
September 9, 2007 10:55:22 AM

say, the pin mod will help me oc further or just plain oc default to 2.4 and normal oc onwards...

It may help you OC further, but since you can already blow past 2.4, it probably won't really make a difference. It's more for those that can't set the FSB at all. What can you lose by trying though? It's a low risk mod, just don't make mistakes or it won't work :kaola: 
September 9, 2007 11:23:10 AM

i am thinking of selling this setup and getting the 6750 and the p35 that why.
September 9, 2007 11:26:17 AM

go for the e6750.....
September 9, 2007 11:41:15 AM

yes .thanks to all for the help, esp RandomiZer. will try hanging around often. thanks again

4 core makes it harder to OC. Just keep that in mind! 4 core means it's more stable and good multi-tasking. Made for graphic designers and not gamers! Gamers, you'll want just high speed! Actually OC from 2.66 to 3.7Ghz I can feel the difference. But from 3.5Ghz and 3.7Ghz, I dont' feel any difference. So I brought my CPU back down to 3.5G now for stability and cooling. I'd suggest you go for 6750, can go to 3.2G easily!
September 9, 2007 3:23:12 PM

my 4300 can go 3.2 ghz easily w/o any increase in temps(or maybe by 1-2 C) and w/ 1.52v or so; it will be a pity if the 675 doesn't get much ahead.
September 9, 2007 4:19:00 PM

what... 1.52v... that's nutty!!!! dont' even try it unless you have a very good cooling system. Also, it'll wreck your motherboard.
6750 i'm going 3.7g full load still 5x degree c. Some ppl are alright with it. It's very stable even @ 3.7g
September 9, 2007 4:38:05 PM

i use intels stock cooler :bounce:  :sol: 
September 9, 2007 4:39:20 PM

on auto voltage i can barely scrape the 2.8 ghz mark
September 9, 2007 4:43:37 PM

What video card do you have? I would think that your e4300 handles everything you throw at it well, so why upgrade from a decent dual core to a better one? Save up for a quad core. The GO stepping q6600 has been OC'ed to 3.2 Ghz easy, and can go higher with proper cooling/setup. So I say to stick with what you have now, save up for a quad, and buy it, since it will help you with future applications.
September 9, 2007 5:02:04 PM

true friend but waiting for full quad core support to arrive will be bad. games don't benefit from it. I guess the 4mb l2 and more speed than this 4300 3.2 ghz will help me out somewhat more and when quad core really becomes indispensable then i ll sell this one to get that one
September 9, 2007 5:04:05 PM

still even if i oc much more than the 4300 would this still be a worthy upgrade? ..now questioning myself
September 9, 2007 5:38:57 PM

The l2 cache doesn't help much at all in games. I think the extra 2 mb l2 cache will give you roughly a 3-5% performance increase in games...but that's all. The extra mhz that you'll be able to achieve in the e6750 will give you more performance, but think about it, is it really worth the money for a little extra performance? I would really try to reconsider saving up for a q6600, which is in my opinion a far better buy.
September 10, 2007 9:13:35 AM

Please think like this: if u had a p35 mobo which processor would u get? u had the budget for the E6600/6750. Still would it be worth to buy a 4300 and oc it or get a 6xx0? Quadcore is not in budget but more importantly i would upgrade to it later on maybe in some months time when barcy/phenyrn arrives and most importantly the quadcore support arrives.
Please think over and tell me. 4300 or 6750 -which one to get for new?
June 27, 2008 2:50:48 PM

Had zero luck overclocking e4300 with my Fatal1ty 1n9 did pin mod with rear defroster repair kit. Cut down brush to make thinner, cut thin strip out of paper to make a stencil and scrapped a bit of overflow off with exacto knife. Viloa!! 2.4 GHZ

Now have e6750 with same board and can't get oc again. 2 gigs aopen. Anyone have any ideas on this board?
