Which Conroe chip is an e7200 equivalent too performance wise?

At the stock speed of 2.53 GHz will an e7200 beat out an e6600 at 2.4 GHz?

Yes and it will overclock further.

REALLY? At stock speeds is it marginally faster or substantially faster?

Do you have any benches?

Which Conroe chip is it almost equivalent too?

I don't think benches exist for the e7200 and e6600. I mean, certainly Tom's or any other site can't possibly have them. I guess you'll have to buy them both and figure it out yourself.

i would go with the e7200 just for the 45nm technology, alway buy the newest tech when buying with the hope that it'll last longer.

E7200, can be clocked to well over 4ghz on air. I'm intending to do a liquid cooled build with one soon and i'm aiming for 4.6ghz.

Be sure to let us know how that works out for ya!

Correction. Up to 4.0 on air, if your lucky. 3.8 is almost a garantee. Over 4 is tough even on water. You will never get 4.6 stable. I'm sure you will get a CPU-Z screenshot, but who cares.

qunatmusheep, I read that the sweet spot for the E7200 is 3.6 using DDR2 800. Anything above that did not return much extra in regards to additional gaming performance. I would be curious to see how high you can over clock it as a lot of the sites I read were able to get it to 3.8 on air. So water cooled you could prob get over 4 but how much more I could not say........

I've built many e7200 systems and usually you can get 3.8 on good air but you need up to 1.4 vcore. Sometimes higher depending on the chip.

3.6 can be achieved on the stock cooler with 1.3 Vcore with idle temps of 39c load temps hit 69c.


I've had a couple stable 4.0s air and water but after 4.1 it gets all crazy no matter what.


Most e8400s wont even hit 4.6 stable. If you want a good chip to play with wait for the e5200 with the 12.5 multi. It will hit 4.0 with 320FSB. I see some major potential on this chip. Its supposed to release in Q3 which should be any time.

got the $119 special from Frys ecs mother and e7200 went over 3 ghz easily and past all tests can't get it to go over 55* with prime95. Very stable for a no brainer setup and fast.

e6600 FTW =)

or at least it did back when I got mine, about 2 weeks after the release :) 

It's been OC'd to over 3ghz for the 2 years I have had it. On air until recently, it's been a great chip.

If i bought new, I would go with a Q6600 or Q9450.

I own a e6600 and an e7200 and i can tell you that with my samples the e7200 is a far better overclocker

Pushing my e6600 to the limits i can get 3.6ghz fairly stable , whereas ive had my e7200 to 3.8ghz without pushing to the limit (both currently run at 3.2ghz).

The other massive improvement is the power consumption, the e7200 runs on a much lower vcore and generally means its cooler as well.
