Excelent price for the new Wolfdale processors, cheaper then the current Intel conroe core 2 duo range. The next cheapest places I have seen this for is 125 quid.

They are built on the new 45nm dies with more cache so are faster and better for overclocking

I have one ordered should be here on monday.

Note you need one of the new P35 intel motherboards to use these.

They also have the E8400 at 3GHz for only £15 more and have more of them in stock – Ebuyer.

It says 64-bit Computing. Can you still run Windows XP that is 32 -bit or do you need to upgrade to XP 64 ?

32bit windows XP/Vista is fine with this processor, and probably still the best option for most users.

why will you need the P35 chipset? You are mistaken alot of motherboards will work my ASUS
P5N E-SLI supports these chips 45nm core with a FSB1333 and that is a Nvidia 650 chipset which is a new board most modern boards support the new 45nm chips.

What your saying basically says that unless you have a P35 chipset your board is useless as the new cores wont work so your saying X38,X48,650,680,750,780 the P35 chipset is getting on now.

Socet 775(sorry am drunk and can barely read)

I was looking to build my first PC and looined at the Quadcore Q6600 go-step. Which one would people recommend me to buy the E8400 or Q6600?

Thanks

It really depends what you are going to use the computer for.
If it is for gaming then The E8400 would be the best choice as you will be limited by your graphics card before your Processor hits the buffers, but if you multitask or encode videos/manipulate images etc. then obviously the quad core would be best.

yes this is a rubbish price the 8400 is £115 in places

Leave the quad, just dont even bother. Minimal advantages and for the price its not worth it. Especially for gaming only crysis and supremem commander support them and in crysis you can hardly notice a difference.

Ok , finnaly ebuyer have these on took them awhile xD. In all respect these will be roughly 1% faster then the e6750, and the e8400 is around that compared to the e6850. Temps are like 10% less, 33degress c down to 20(e6850/e8400)

Many boards "support" 45nm but are not fully supported aka only dual core not quad cores.
Check your mobo here to see if you can get a quad core when they are released(only the £500 quad is out atm cos the rest delayed) event.asus.com/mb/…nm/
voted hot as its £5 cheaper then scan, ordered my e8400 already xD

How about submitting a deal then, eh?

Out of Stock for the E8200 and E8400

where? I'm looking to buy this cpu

Sorry I meant you need at least the P35 chipsets, any chipset that supports the new fsb should work. Its not much point paying the extra 15 quid for the 3ghz one because you can overclock it to that quite easily.

You're completely wrong, as usual. In fact what you say is so wrong its almost the opposite of the truth. Educate yourself, you have a lot to learn

I'm not sure if on the nforce front but to my knowledge the new bearlake chipset (on which the P35/X38 plus a new low budget ones are based) is the only one capable of running 45nm processors. The FSB is the same as the x6x50 but the nm is a lot smaller and has newer technologies on it. I have the P35 but I run the Q6600 anyway and aint lookin to trade out my Quad Core for a new Dual Core! :\

The compatibility issue is as much to do with the new VRM spec than anything else. So even if you have a board that is officially limited to 266 FSB maximum but happily over-clocks to well over 400, the VRM incompatibility will scupper you.

No doubt ASRock will start releasing boards using older Intel chipsets that will work with the new CPUs but Intel will not officially support them.

Note: VRM = Voltage Regulator Module.

My Asus P5B Deluxe (P965) appears to be 45nm compatible, just waiting for C64 to reply then I'll get the E8400. I won't be overclocking the CPU if that makes any difference.

c64 wont reply because hes full of bull.

Considering you can get the E8400 for 15 quid more from Lambdatek and the E8200 is also cheaper for them this is definitely not a "hot" deal. Yes it's a good price considering the shipping but it's hardly a hot deal considering it's probably only a few quid cheaper than in other places. I've got an E8400 myself and I would definitely reccomend it over the e8200.

You will be overclocking though The 965 chipset doesn't officially support the 1333mhz fsb and as the site you've linked to states you have to overclock to get to 1333. It will be just fine though as long as you update to the latest BIOS.

Can't wait ot get the e8400 and a new mobo - will probably be buying from scan though

LOL sounds like you've been listening to people running speedfan. Speedfan is a very **** way of measuring CPU temperatures because it uses sensors on the motherboard and it's only an approximation. Coretemp is the only way to accurately measure CPU temps. On my PC Speedfan says my CPU temps were 21 defrees c idle in a room that was 22 degrees c which is impossible. Coretemp says it's 39 degrees C and that is correct and makes much more sense.

I have a P5K Premium and an E8400. Got the P5K from PC World Business (quidco!) and the E8400 from Lambdatek which was the only place which had the E8400 available before it was meant to be released.

I saw it in benchmark results/review of the e8400 vs e6870. It is very possible to have 21degrees in the case compared to 22degrees around it, air shifted from case and how long was the pc on for? as the metal could be cold and thus cooling the air slightly.

Dunno why its expired as it is still forsale,just out of stock and intel arnt in short supply like 8800GT by nvidia, expect them back in soon.

The system temperature can be above ambient for a while but my PC is on 24/7.

I still suspect that the review was going off speedfan which as I said is not an accurate way of measuring temperature. I'm not even running the stock cooler either. I'm running a Thermalright Ultra-120 extreme which is just about the best air cooler you can buy. Under load it gets up to about 45 degrees c so there's plenty of room to move.

Ah I see, cheers :thumbsup: Am I right in thinking that as I'll have to overclock just to run at stock, would the overclocking potential of running over stock be more limited compared to a more recent board like the P5K?

And aside from overclocking potential, what would a P5K board (or similar) offer over my existing P5B board?

CoreTemp uses the Digital Thermal Sensors (DTS) which are embedded in each core. It’s the most valuable reading to have as these are the temperature readings that the CPU uses to control its own thermal throttling.
Speedfan also gives you access to the DTS readings as well as the other less valuable reading that you mentioned, so you are wrong to disparage Speedfan. You might need to calibrate the temp readings in Speedfan as it sometimes uses an incorrect TJunction value which can throw the values off by 15C or so. Once you’ve calibrated it the readings will be the same for both utilities.
The nice thing about CoreTemp is that you can set it to show the Delta to Tjunction rather than the calculated absolute temperature. What that means is that it shows how many degrees Centigrade you are from the thermal throttling threshold.

Advantages? Nil really.

I would think the overclocking potential of a P5b with an E8400 would be less than a P5K with an E8400 but as with everything it's down to a bit of luck. If you don't want to overclock I think you'd be fine with the P5B

True enough. But at the end of the day you're just calibrating it with Coretemp anyway. I definitely doubt you'd ever get an E8400 in the 20 degree range with air cooling at room temp though.

I love how I get a reading of 127 degrees C on my g/f's PC (P5B) and 119 degrees C on my PC (P5K) for the "aux" sensor. I just prefer something like Coretemp which gives you the right readings out of the box. Although I do think perhaps that Coretemp is overeporting temps on the e8xxx processors though. But an update should sort that.
