Quick Question for you guys.
I just got a E8200 Engineering Sample, I had one earlier but put it in a work PC but from what I remember it had a STUPID low VID (below 1.0v I think). This one I have in front of me is from the same tray.
Right now in my system I have an Q6600 with a 1.325 VID that can barely hit 3.0Ghz Stable. Takes 1.45v to even get that. And it gets pretty hot (35ish idle, 65ish PRIME95).
Now I mostly game and web surf. Occasionally I use Photoshop and what not.
My question is, should I go through the trouble of swapping it out? Would it even be worth it? Pretty simple question I think.
The writing on the chip is: 09HR ES Malay Q739A279.
