Default E6750 Just a lowered E6600?

Hey I was helping someone on the forum overclock there E6750 and after doing some numbers as we were going I realized a E6750 is a E6600 if that makes any sense.

E6750 clocks at 2.66Ghz with a 1333FSB

E6600 clocks at 2.4Ghz with a 1066FSB

Difference E6600 uses a 9x multi were the E6750 uses a 8x multi.

So essentially if I drop a E6600 multi to 8x and set the FSB at 1333 I get 2.66Ghz the same as the E6750.

So i'm wondering to myself would it be smarter to recommend E6600's over E6750's? Because you get a better multiplier for a higher possible clock vs FSB and then you can run it at 8x and see were it could clock as a E6750.

Am I missing something here. The only thing I could see as being different is the newer steppings.

Good luck getting to 1333.

Whats that supposed to mean? I've lowered mine and had the FSB up to 1763 already.

Ah that's how it works. Have you looked at the temps?

Ya use the sames settings I do for a 9x 1567FSB. Temps are the same as those settings. Lowering the multi won't impact cpu temps but may have a effect on your motherboard temps because you may have to pump more juice to make a high FSB stable. Most of these new boards can run around a 1910-1920FSB. Although going that high would require more juice for the CPU and theres no way I can get that high. Only difference is I open the boards bandwith up lowering the multi.

I'm just curious if anyone else realized that.

Higher multiplier = better for overclocking. That's why the E6600 is such a good chip to OC.

Then again, the E6750 uses less efforts to overclock even higher than what the E6600 can put out.

Ya you do have a point there. Its just food for thought I guess. I'm just wondering how many E6600's magically became E6750's at intel lol.

The reason why I say that is because the E6750 uses the Go stepping revision which the E6600 doesn't have. It helps to lower power consumption, which in turn, provide better overclocking.

The advantage of the E6600 is that the higher multiplier means less stress on the motherboard FSB, which is usually one of the main limiting factors in the OC.
