    best for o/cing.......600e or 600eb ?

    ok well i went to the store to order my mates computer with him. they had all the parts except the 600e i was after.
    theysaid they could only get the 600eb model in.
    my question is the 600eb is an fc-pga chip isnt it?
    and it runs at 133mhz right?

    he said to get that and an
    asus slot 1-->pc-pga converter but i was really after the 600e for my mate as i heard it was much better at o/cing.

    so what do u guys think ?

    should i get all the other components from that store and look for the 600e somewhere else?

    (it was a good shop with a wide variety of parts and good prices, they had every other component in stock)

    the 600e is way better for o/c'ing! No doubts about it! Whatever you do, don't buy any EB chips and wait for the e chips!

    e only denotes that they are Cumine (so ATC and 0.18?). They come in both slot 1 and FC, depending on which CPU you want. Check out www.pricewatch.com to get an idea of what is actually available.

    by the way since no one answered this one yet ATC stands for Advanced Transfer Cache it is basicly just faster cache memory.
