Ok theres a website i use to buy alot of my system hardware from, now my question is this .... this site is selling the Intel Core 2 Duo E6600 2.4ghz Socket 775 FSB1066 for 147.67p and the Intel Core 2 Duo E6750 2.66GHz 1333FSB Socket 775 for 114.96p ..... why is the Core 2 Duo E6600 2.4ghz Socket 775 1066FSB more expencive than the Core 2 Duo E6750 2.66GHz 1333FSB Socket 775? the E6750 is faster stock CPU & a higher FSB! why is it cheaper??

Yeah, its the same in every shop where I'm used to buy hardware from. Don't be fooled, E6750 is faster, newer and better CPU than E6600. I suppose E6600 is still around for people without FSB1333 support.. ? I see it all the time that the old generation is more expensive then the new, better generation.

Anybody know how one of these E6750 2.66GHz 1333FSB's will overclock compared to a E6600 2.4ghz 1066FSB's?

I heard that although the e6750 supports 1333mhz it isnt quite as good as the e6700 (dunno bout the e6600) at overclocking, might be something to do with the multipler.

i run my 6750 at 3.48-3.5, but thats also on the stock cooler. Its got more left in it....once i put a diff hsf on it.

E6750 requires higher FSB to reach the same clocks as older Core 2s but it will run cooler and should have more overclocking head room.

My system still has some head room and I have it at 3.6Ghz. Totally stable, and runs relatively cool. :)
