I'm buying an E6300 next month!!! (hopefully )
Also a Tuniq Tower cooling.
I hope I'll be able to overclock it well with only 1GB DDRII 667 :\
The best Core 2 Duo for overclocking is the E6600, imo. I'm not sure why they would skip that one.
Exactly. The E6600 is by far the best, because it is the lowest processor in the higher cache range. Not everything is frequency, the 6800 is still much better than the 6300, even though the frequency is close. The extra L2 cache will make a HUGE difference with the 6800...
On the topic of overclocking:
Btw, that is a 6800. Whoever did the overclock test with the 6300 and 6800 is a moron; NEVER use Intel boards for overclocking. They don't like overclocking most of the time. Asus or DFI boards generally work much, MUCH better.
Along a different note, a .71Ghz overclock is actually quite decent, but these chips can definently do better (as I just showed you)
