Hi, I'm currently running a E6750 Core 2 Duo on my XFX 680i LT mobo. I've recently feared bottlenecks from my current CPU while running a GTX 285. I've been able to clock the e6750 to 3.45GHZ on a stock heatsink but I'm really looking for a CPU that can run stable with minimal OC'ing and without bottleneck issues. Do anyone have any ideas? Thanks for any input!
So at 3.45ghz, I shouldn't worry about bottlenecks? I know I am being a bit paranoid about bottleneck issues (especially since I really don't know the main cause of it other than an inferior CPU), I just want to be safe from it. If my e6750 at 3.45ghz will avoid bottlenecking, I might just stick with that and upgrade my cooling and look for higher clocks.
Whoops my bad. I thought the 45nm quads we're good on that board after a BIOS update. After some double checking, apparently the 45nm Duals are ok, just not Quads. Either way i stick with me previous comment...minus the q9550 suggestion
