Question Did i do the right thing?

Well i just sold my E6600, Thermalright Ultra-120 eXtreme & a 120mm fan, i have decided to swapp to a E6750 1333FSB, have i done the right thing? ive heard with the right cooling you can get these things up to 3.8GHz - 4.0GHz.

Are the E6750 2.66GHz 1333FSB CPU's alot better than the E6600 2.4GHz 1066FSB CPU's?

As i said ... have i done the right thing?

I don't think the E6750 is official supported by the P5B because of the 1333 FSB.

It probably won't run at the right speed when you put it in, but if you're overclocking anyway it doesn't really matter much.

They aren't always cheaper than E6600, just sometimes the price drops
