Default conroe cache size?

i know there are conroe chips with 2mb and 4mb cache's, im jst wondering if there will be a big performance difference between the E6600/E6700 and the E6300/E6400 just because of the cache size?

With the exception of benching, there is not a big difference tbh....

well according to anandtehc's tests, the E6300 overclocked performs pretty much exactly like the E6700 stock

Anandtech did tests on it. There was only an average of 3.5% difference, with 10% being the highest and that was with DivX. I don't know if those included games, but you definitally wouldn't notice in games.
