  1. It's luck.. but at this point most places should have G0s.

    Some places (Clubit.com) sell only G0s.

    It's hit or miss.
  2. thx u
  3. I wouldn't sweat it unless you plan on going above say 3.4 on the OC....or you like lower power consumption for other (perhaps environmental) reasons.

    My B3 performs like a champ....I've now booted and ran stable at 3750mhz via 9 x 416.66~ but my temps were too high on 100% load....I suppose the GO might have fixed that, but you never know.
  4. cool , will se once p5k-e and tuniq will b installed ... thx u
  5. if you oc the cpu, I would recommand the x3210, it use 8 multi in stead 9, but since xeon is the server cpu, it seems take less voltage.
    mine oc 3.2 GHZ by 1.200v in bios (1.136 v on prime 95)

    Why would a lower multiplier be better?

    And you have a good chip, but there are also G0 Q6600s that will do that. (Just rare).

    Dont always say that cnu.

    We already decided the E2160 overclocks better than the E2180 and that has a lower multiplier

    Yes, and in the 1MB Allendale Core line I agree.

    I'm asking his opinion on why the lower multiplier is better in this regard.
  9. He didn't - he actually seemed to say "in spite of"

    The advantage was the second line - lower voltages and hopefully less waste heat for the cooler to dissipate as a result (unless the Xion pulls more current...)
  10. I never say it is better to use 8* than 9*, just q6600 use 9 and x3210 use 8 . if his target is 3.2 Ghz to 3.4 Ghz, then the cheap cpu is always better choice. I search internet about x3210 before purchase it from clubit. everyone rate this chip is same or better than Q6600. not the max frequency, But voltage requirement run 3.2 Ghz.
    I think server chip is always better than desktop chip if they are running the same frequency.
  11. I don't agree that server > desktop...

    But either way, both OC easily and depending on the level desired, yes 3.2 GHz is fine with an X3210.

    I like my 3.6 personally.
  12. i dont see why some1 would buy a x3210 ! for the price difference it dsnt worth it at all !!!like 40$ max difference between a 2.13 / 2.40 cpu ... and i guess q6600 will produce less heat than a x3210 at 3.2 ghz both ...

    high ends cpu for max 40$ , imo it dont even need to think about it ..
  13. "guess q6600 will produce less heat than a x3210 at 3.2 ghz both"
    if both cpu run the same speed, the heat generater will depend in the cpu voltage only.
    and you call the under 300 dollars cpu high end, LOL. try get a q9650 and push to 4Ghz, that is high end!
