Question Where did all the E6400's go?

I have been looking into a few upgrades for my pc. I was looking on Canada Computers, NCIX and Direct Canada for an E6400. Not one of these stores has it listed. Can anyone explain this? The E6200,6300 and 6600 are all available. Did I miss something?

NCIX's search is useful.

Why would you want E6400 when E6420 or E6750 are same price? Both will prob clock better and both have 4mb cache (E6400 has 2mb L2). :)

I was looking for a price comparison. Since the release of the new processors, a lot of new and used 6x00 processors are available on ebay. A new 6400 can be had for as little as $120-150. Used can go even cheaper. I have had great success purchasing pc parts in this fashion. Most are NIB and come w/warranty. I've saved $100's off retail.

Just picked up a 6400 for $150. No shipping, no taxes, local pick-up. I just might be able to afford watercooling in the next few weeks. The thermaltake bigwater 745 as a starter system has caught my eye for some time now. I need to find an out of province retailer to avoid PST.

The TT BigWater is crap though, it usually gets beat by most high-end HSF's.

The 745 isn't quite the "crap" you're making it out to be... the original bigwater could probably be called that, but the 745 has a 300 LPH pump, as well as dual rads (240 + 120).

I challenge anybody to come up with a HSF that could put out #s even close to what my 745 did when I first installed it. (I will admit though that the #s it's putting out lately leave a bit to be desired... I think the rads need a good flush to get the TT coolant crap out of them.... :) ).

That said..... you'd get a better system at the same price if you picked up the NCIX 240 system for $190...... :)
