the e4300 is a better deal than an e6400, 6% performance difference when they are both overclocked to around 3.2ghz and at a lower fsb.

Ive had enough of being an "Early Adopter" or whatever it is they call it.

The potential for getting another 700Mhz with an E6750 is definitely worth it though IMO.

I don't think the E4300s are getting any higher than 3 or 3.2 most of the time.

yeah 3.2 is about the maximum on air but performance difference compared to a slightly higher clocked e6400 is minimal.

I do note that those guys only managed 3.45 on air with their 6400

How much longer till you upgrade man, ram is at a all time low?

I think the E4300 is a good buy as well as the E6600. Depends on what you are looking for.
I have 3 E6600s. The latest purchase was just a few weeks ago and it easily clocks as well as the first one which I purchased many months ago. Luck of the draw? Probably, but still that is the case.
I was able to take my P5N-E back off the shelf and put a Ultra 120 on the E6600 with some G.Skill ram and get it to run 9x400 for 3.6GHz which it would not do back in Feb with a E6600. That particular E6600 easily ran 3.6GHz on a MSI P6N Platinum. The second E6600 easily crusies at 3.7GHz on a 650i Ultra.

Yeah, there isn't much difference between the E4xxx and E6xxx CPUs.

I don't think anyone will argue against that.

I'm waiting for the price drops in July as well as the new CPUs.

I'm thinking of ordering some parts now that aren't likely to change in price though, just to make it a little cheaper to get the main components.

I think I'm going to get the Ultra 120 Extreme before it goes out of stock everywhere.

Thats a ton of money for a heatsink, but I doubt anything will compete with it for some time, except maybe that carbon nanotube thing from thermaltake, but that'll probably cost over $100.

EDIT: GOD DAMMIT! Heatsink is out of stock at the store I was going to buy it.

EDIT2: Heh, found it somewhere else for a decent price. I think I might just order it now...

I'm going to get a high speed Scythe S-Flex fan with it too. 63.7 CFM at only 28db.

Anyone ever used Wintec ram?
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820161038

Its cheap as hell. I probably won't be overclocking the ram (i doubt I'll hit 4Ghz with an e 6750 and still have head room ) so it shouldn't matter too much as long as it runs at its rated speed without errors.

My Crucial Ballistix 5300 ram is holding me back even with relaxed timings. My E6600 will not go faster than 3.3GHZ. I am happy with that to be honest.
