The 1.8GHz Core 2 Duo E4300
should be a real treat for an overclocker. Having a default FSB frequency of 200MHz and a rather high multiplier of 9x (the same as the Core 2 Duo E6600 has), this CPU should overclock much simpler than junior models of the E6000 series. You need to increase the FSB frequency to overclock the CPU and here it can hardly be limited by the capabilities of the chipset or mainboard as it was often the case with the Core 2 Duo E6300. The e4300 is expected to be available on or around the 21st of January, and will retail for approximately US$165.

Get a monitor instead - imo you'll see far more benefit and far less hassle from it

Don't listen to XMS - he still uses a cr@ppy old CRT

He's already got a 17" TFT and wants to upgrade to a 20" TFT...

Personally i'd se a far bigger benefit moving to water cooling, over an extra 3" on your monitor :rolleyes:

So widescreen > WC atm - get myself a widescreen tft and if i can stretch for a kit get one, if not save?

Its all down to money really and a monitor will cost more but I can sell this one and go partly towards it...Eesh we don't get it easy do we?

btw my cpu is at 51 degrees atm after folding all day and only at 2.6ghz :(

u dont neeeed both, to be totally honest with u, id get a large WS first then start on water cooling, i got my water cooling first then the monitor, the water cooling is great and all, got me a few more fps and a lil higher 3dmark but i dont look @ it as much as my screen. get a decent nice WS first is my vote.
