  1. Of the 2, the Intel Core 2 Extreme X6800.

    Thought I heavily advise against either. You can buy cheaper alternatives and easily overclock them with a decent CPU cooler to match or exceed them.

    Well i currently have the E4400 due, what would you suggest.
  3. Intel Core 2 Quad Q9550 Yorkfield 2.83GHz - $254.99
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16819115041
  4. I don't think this board can run 45nm processors, i think I'm limited to 65nm ones. as far as I know. Has anyone run this CPU on this MB. Also my manual says that the FSB is 566/800/1066MHz
  5. I may have been looking at the P5N32-E SLI model instead. I know that can run it.
  6. So of all the cpus that this motherboard can support which would be the best I can get.

  7. Core 2 Duo E6700 based on that list.

    Won't take much to overclock it to the same levels as the X6800 and you save a lot of money in the process.
  8. Intel Pentium Extreme Edition is a piece of crap compared to any current CPU.

    Even your E4400 dual core is much better than it. Get yourself a cheap 65nm dual core off ebay and overclock it.
  9. You think so.
    The Extreme has a fsb of 1066 were as the e4400 only has 800, and the extreme has a Frequency of 3733mhz where the e4400 has only 2000mhz

    Is not a higher number = faster?
  10. The Pentium CPU is a Pentium 4 single core.

    The E4400 has two cores.

    Not only that, but the dual core architecture of Core2s/Pentium Duals (not Pentium Ds) is much more efficient than Pentium 4s.

    A single core Core2 (core solo) running at 2.5GHz will be better than a Pentium 4 running at 4GHz.

    You can't directly compare the frequency if the two cpus are entirely different generations.
