Also @Faisal A you have the board already?

-Frequencies DON'T represent everything and in many cases that is true (referring to Individual CPU Clocks).


I am a Logitech Fan, gonna get that G633 Artemis Spectrum Headset. Since then I am interested (and open to other reputable brands) to sound quality and the Audiosphere.

Apparently people list motherboards specifically under LGA771, if you don't have your motherboard already maybe one of these might be a better choice for better cpus.




It's also P45 chipset, which is better than G41 and cheaper. Just make sure if you buy a "pre-modded" cpu to remove the sticker on the bottom bridging contacts. You might want to try to find one that isn't modded if these are a proper LGA771 socket which they seem to be.
