    Team Fortress 2: Free Weekend in Germany

    does an e6600 @ 2.67 GHz get hotter than an e6700?

    i'm not firm about CPUs at all, but it seems natural that e.g. an e6600 and an e6700 actually come from the same wafer and are only separated by individual performance testing. is this so? if yes, then an e6600 clocked at e6700 speeds shouldn't produce more heat than an original e6700...
