What's a Dremel?

Marcin has yet to learn the way of the Dremel
Which Intel Core 2 Quad is best for tape mod overclocking?

I have HP Compaq dc7900 with E8400/3MHZ CPU. I could just replace CPU with E8600 and gain 10% speed,
but I need 4 cores. Unfortunately these Quads have lower frequency what affects single core applications.

So I want to get some 4 core and overclock it with tape modding (OEM HP motherboard locks other options)

I would like a moderate number, something between 3.2 or 3.4 would be optimal and not less than 3.0

I have opportunity to get cheaply various models, Q6600, Q8400, Q9500, Q9650 and others.

Please help me with your expertise.
