It has a heatsink on the Nb, and one of the really expensive models might support 1600, but I think only x48 supports that.

I've seen benchies between 1066 and 1333 and it was barely anything. So I'm guessing 1333 to 1600 is not that much of a jump either.

Yeah im defiantly getting the e8400 i don't care what anyone says, their are no heat problems. Only miss-readings.

If those heat problems were more true then scare then people wouldn't be able to overclock to 4.0 ghz and stay stable, would they?

at the 8400 price I'd rather get a quad. Yea it's nice to have 4+ ghz clocks but I'd prefer the extra two cores
