    I think the winchesters can oc higher and run cooler. Winchesters are newer.

    Winchesters use a .09u technology. Newcastles use a slightly larger .13u process, same as the Thouroughbred and Barton. Newcastles run a bit hotter. Although, with CNQ it doesn't matter all that much if you are a casual user. If you are looking into heavy overclocking, the Winchesters are going to be able to take you further.
