Does any body know if losing an FPU by going from a Phenom II X4 to an FX 6300 is noticeable at such a high clock?

This is a great CPU ,but i could get ,with close to "normal" voltages , a 4400Mhz on all cores ,2200 NB and 2400 HT maximum , in daily use ,as a six core.
As quad 4500 with 2 modules that liked this and 4700 as dual core on one module.
Anything over would give issues while gaming.I could get it to boot at 4900 i think ,if i remember correctly ,but with Windows reset.
Sabertooth R2.0 + H60 as cooler.

Never pushed voltages ,if the temp was going over 70 Celsius.The final goal was to put it in 65 Celsius daily use ,steady and let it be.

At 4400 it was running nice.
As a dual core i was able to play CS:GO just fine online ,at 4700 ,with some drop outs ,but it was playable.
Great CPU.

After adding a SSD in the system dropped to 4100 with CnQ on and i have nothing to complain about.

Power draw wise is 330W max overclocked at outlet ,with an unlocked 6950.
At idle sucked less than my stock 975BE ,at load feeding better the GPU there is a 20W plus.

So if you already own a powerful Phenom 2 X4 upgrading to this will result in less heat ,less power consumption ,if you stay under 3800Mhz ,and a little more processing power overall.

I decided not 2 weeks ago to not bother upgrading from my Phenom II X4 955 @ 3.5Ghz and just save for a system conversion to Intel later this summer. Now I'm doubting that decision. Well done guys.

Good info too.
