Superb price for a retail version of the cheapest true Conroe chip (rather than Allendale).
Voted hot.
#2
Thanks joggerspark :)

Good to see your hot deal !
#3
Don't think you can free delivery with Google checkout can you?

Also, I don't understand why people care so much about the naming of these chips. The ONLY difference between an allendale and a conroe is the L2 cache size.

anybody know of a decently priced motherboard to go with this chip ?
[mod]#6
Nice price joggerspark :thumbsup: Thanks!

Gigabyte DS3 is a very good motherboard for this CPU :)
#8
Cheers for the heads-up

This is the price it should have been in the first place (and it was for a short while).

Tip: if you want this, buy it ASAP as their system will automatically bump the price up when they have sold some.

I dont know how good it is but I have just ordered this to go with the processor:

There is this as an alternative:

Yes google checkout works with 5 day super saver free delivery :)
#11
good price.

this chip should overclock to 3GHZ with a decent mobo pretty easy!
#12
Definitely the new 'chip of the moment' -- don't bother with that E6300 :)
#13
so tempted

The cache size is a significant boost with certain tasks. I'd hate doing encoding on an allendale, and as this isn't much more than one there is little point having a lesser spec.

I'd second the DS3. DDR2 is extremely cheap right now too, there was a deal posted here yesterday I think for some good brand RAM from Ebuyer at around £30 for a 1GB stick?

Excuse my ignorance but that board doesn't support the full 1066 FSB does it or am I wrong?

Yeah :-) Memory is insanely cheap now.

Remember if you intend to overclock (which you should!), you may need faster ram:

DDR2-666: 333mhz * 8 = 2.66ghz (stock voltage)
DDR2-800: 400mhz * 8 = 3.2ghz (mght still be stock, or a tiny nudge up)


Quite a few forums have people runnng these wth 900mhz ram, and 8*450=3.6ghz. That's about the max you can go on safe voltage levels, and it's still possible to cool that with top air-coolers (eg thermalright 120).

about 10% difference max between 2mb/4mb cache at the best of times....usually alot less if any difference.

you'd be hard pressed to tell the difference unless you knew already

or you can buy a 650i based board which has memory dividers and use any old cheap ram with not much performance hit ...unlike the 965 boards which have no downward memory dividers (aka ds3)

That's definitely the key point here :-D

GRRRRRR :x

Ordered this this morning for £126!!! Do eBuyer do a thing like amazon where they will refund you the difference????

If it hasn't been dispatched yet why don't you cancel it and order it again at the new price?
#23
Was tempted, but ordered with google checkout and apparently takes ages to cancel...

I've found cancellations to be very quick in my experience. Just select the appropriate option on your order in google checkout.

Alternatively you can cancel via the ebuyer account attached to the Google checkout account (via the "forgot password" trick discussed in the main ebuyer thread, if you were not logged into ebuyer when purchasing). The refund will then come through via Google.

Cant find this option?

Go into the order, then click the "contact ebuyer" link. Choose "i want to cancel my order" as the request type, and send.

Doh!! Thanks :)

most ram will overclock at lest 10%

so a ddr2-666: 333mhz can run at 366. 366*8 = 2.93GHZ
#29
damn, so tempted. e6600 is £153.78 Inc. VAT from ebuyer as well :(

I've just bought this, mobo, 2gig of RAM and an X1950Pro, a case with 450W PSU, and 7.1 soundcard for a grand total of £300! Cant be robbed at that price!

What mobo did you end up getting?

Can you list the products you bought, I am trying to build a system at the moment and the price you are quoting seems really good.

Thanks
#33
For anybody intending to overclock this list beauty, I would hold fire until some reviews of people overclocking with the retail version of this processor hit the net as the reviews I have seen have been less than impressive and worse than the older E6300/E6400 models.
I still reckon that the E4400 is the best buy of these new chips at £80 delivered as it will get you to roughly the same overclock as the E6320/E6420 ... except with cheaper components.
#34
Mobo was the ASRock someone posted higher up in this thread, mem was a 2gb kingston kit 533MHz. Sorry haven't got time to find the links right now, will post them later! Case was ebuyer value black, and soundcard SB audigy 7.1 SE OEM.

X1950 was from shopmagenta - about £85 delivered! About 10-15 quid less than ebuyer even with google checkout!
#35
Overclocking:

http://xbitlabs.com/articles/cpu/display/core2duo-e6420_11.html

3.72ghz, admittedly at 1.6V though (past sensible imo).

Could you please give the link for the graphics card...I'm sure many will be interested at that price.
#37
I was wrong - was X1950GT not Pro...sorry! I've posted a deal for it as you have seen I think cc :)
#38
Yeah but I did say to wait for some RETAIL overclocking results, the one I have seen have not been ANYWHERE like that golden sample review that was done before they were released. Seems to be very hit and miss as to what you end up with and a lot of the new ones clock worse than the older chips.
#39
OK My setup, as requested(although slightly changed since original!):

CPU: E6420 http://www.ebuyer.com/UK/product/126906 £110.95 (although I paid £116 :()

Mobo: ASRock Conroe http://www.ebuyer.com/UK/product/119413 £40.68

Graphics card: X1950 Pro http://www.ebuyer.com/UK/product/119203 £89.84

Ram Kingston 2x1GB http://www.ebuyer.com/UK/product/64178 £41.57 (again paid more :()

Case: http://www.ebuyer.com/UK/product/122775/rb/27281984970 (actually comes with 450W PSU not the 400 advertised)

Soundcard: Soundblaster Audigy 7.1 http://www.ebuyer.com/UK/product/98938

Case and SCard came to £31.51

Total of: £314.55 - slightly over my £300 but only just. Add the 160GB SATA drive advertised elsewhere for £25, a DVDRW for about £18-20, as well as keyboard and mouse, and you have a full base system with high end dual core and gfx card and 2gig ram for around £360-370!

Of course then monitor and OS to go on top....and perhaps speakers!
