so E8400 or E8500 both are of course faster than my E6600 since i wonītr OC i am thinking E8500 but the 8400 is cheaper.
But then agian iīve heard people having problems with heat issues the wolfdale seems very hot overheating almsot in an instance, so how hot is it if properly put to palce with original cooling?
I read a guy had a tuniq tower and idle it went 55-88 or so and no cooler with original cooling and no OC
My E4600 is running at 3ghz by raising fsb only. Volatage, everything else is at stock, still idling at 20c, max load under Orthos 42c.
I'd bet you wouldn't have a problem.
