Default E4300 review

I am going to upgrade to this when it comes out and also the price will drop to $133 soon after release.


and what i like most i can buy cheap ram i quote

The change in base FSB speed also has advantages in overclocking, making it possible to use a linked (1:1 ratio) memory speed and still get extremely high overclocks without resorting to anything more than DDR2-800 memory. The E6300 has a 7x multiplier and a 266 MHz base bus speed, so without dropping to a 4:5 ratio and sticking with DDR2-800, the E6300 tops out at 7x400 or 2.8 GHz. With a 9x multiplier the E4300 can potentially reach as high as 9x400 or 3.6 GHz while keeping memory at or below DDR2-800. While it is possible to get bus speeds of P965 motherboards above 500 MHz, it is far more difficult and often requires more expensive component choices, making the E4300 the new king of budget overclocking. Throw in a more powerful CPU cooling setup, and we have no doubt it will be very easy to exceed our 3.37GHz overclock by a large margin.

I was reading up on it and it seems like a solid purchase at that price range. Its got a higher multiplier than the e6300 and its pretty cheap. I'll see what happens when i eventually decide to upgrade. Theyre putting 4mb of cache on the 6400 and 6300 and changing the names to 6420 and 6320 or something like that. Depending on the prices, i'll make my decision.
