|That would be expected, I think. Also, perhaps you botched the thermal paste cleaning/reapply a bit when swapping? |
At any rate, what's the point of the swap, unless you 'think' you could get more OC out of the 3.33 rather than the 2.93.
EDIT: After looking at the spec pages, the E8600 has double the L2 cache and a higher FSB than the E7500, so it actually probably comes out better if you want to crank that CPU back to 3.9 or wherever you had it. Just as long as your temps don't get past ~60°C, you should be good but cooler is better. ALWAYS clean your air vents and fans weekly.
