q6600vsq6700

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Im looking for an uprdage from an e8400. The $200 q9550 just are alil too rich for my blood at the moment and im looking. When comparing these chips and prices they are fairly similar, however i see more people with the q6600 than the q6700. Does the q6700 not overclock as good as the 6600?

The Q6600 comes in B3 and G0 stepping. The G0 Q6600 overclocks well (3.6-3.8ghz, while the B3 is 3.4 ish). The Q6700 only comes in G0 stepping and should overclock basically identically to the Q6600 G0, maybe a hair better depending on if Intel actually used any binning for them.

I think they are basically the same chip, I had a q6600 and my mate had a q6700. The q6700 has a 10x multilayer while the q6600 has a 9x. In the end to get the best OC out of the q6700 we had to take the multiplier down to 9x. So in that the case they worked out to perform the same. I would base your purchase on the VID if you can find that out

Wow - I just checked Ebay and my old Q6700 is selling for between $140 and $220..?!?!? Are people still buying these? I was told mine was something of a "golden chip" back when I was posting scores a couple years ago based on the BIN and the fact that I've been running it at 3.8Ghz with x10 multi @ 1.36 VCore. Been running rock solid stable for the past couple of years, although I haven't really pushed it with gaming all that much recently. Hrmm.....

Thoughts?
