I was wondering, what's the name of the core of these CPU's [Example: Irwindale, Prescott, Northwood etc]
And I am intending to buy a new pc with a pretty nice sum of money and might consider buying the Pentium D 940.. but I have two really important questions...
A. Will the Pentium D 930 or 940 [3GHz - 3.2GHz] do any better than my current CPU? Which is a Prescott, Pentium 4 3.0GHz with HyperThreating Technologoy... and if it will [as I assume] by how far will the preformance will be increased?
B. I am trying to reach lowest temp possible with best resaults [whether its with OC or w/out...].. as I know Prescott is a 'hot' chip by its nature.. I was wondering what is the normal range of Temps in the Pentium D 930 & 940 Serier.. (Oh yeah, I don't have Water-Cooling, my dad will kill me if i ask him to buy that too
we just bought a Gigabyte GH-PCU22-VG Rocket 3D cooler so water cooling is out of question for now
Would be happy to hear you'r pro's and con's over these chips..
Thanks in advance.
