Thats's the thing though. i dual is faster then a quad, BUT they hit the same clocks if their running on air. Unless you got serious cooling, a Core 2 Duo will hit a wall the same time as the quad.

So? Im expecting 4.4-4.6 for the new chip. my e8400 hits a wall at 4.3 ghz. I wont go higher without serious voltage.

$330 is a low price to pay for a chip that was well over $500 3 months ago.
