for gaming id go e8400 if it can do that 24/7 stable because your increasing the FSB alot unleashing a bottleneck for your video card which in gaming should help alot.

some might call foul for games like bf3 but they dont take into the consideration of fsb and raw speed differences between the 2 oc's and for all other games its going to be much smoother.

now if this was a q6600 @ 3.6-3.8 vs e8400 @ 4.0 id go Q6600 all day
