    Hmmmm...........

    Now let's see, what have we learned....?

    Oh yeah, you can't overclock a Q6600 to the point of an E8400. The stock Intel cooler isn't designed for overclocking, and last but not least, at this rate, there will be an LGA775 socket vacant shortly.

    well e8400 is like the same price or less or more in some places than q6600

    what i see that seems pretty worth buying is e7300 =] at the price of 140

    What are you talking about? Now the E7300 is worth buying? I thought we had already bought the Q6600. Are we working on becoming a notorious serial CPU purchaser? Is another poll in the offing?

    I said buy one of each, an E8400 and an Q6600 a couple of pages ago. Now maybe a third system with an E7300 just to kick around?

    The prices in O'Canada really suck, sorry. The E7300 was on sale at Microcenter all through Christmas @ $104.95 USD.

    I did something phenominally stupid with mine, I installed it with a better than stock cooler and have absolutely no intention whatsoever of overclocking it.

    Did everybody get the pun with the "phenom(inally)"?
