Oh, I see it now. What site did you buy these chips from?

The 2 chips are definitley ES chips, they say INTEL CONFIDENTIAL and all that, their part number does match the OEM part number of HH80557PH0564M. I got the previous link wrong. Try this link.

Seems a bit strange still, I was expecting two Retail e6600s without the box or fan. How do I know if these chips are new? or had some crazy overvolted, over heated overclock performed on them. They look new enough, bit of a heatsink scuff but I've seen that on new boxed retail chips before.

Anyway, any idea which one I should keep if any?
QLLR ES MALAY or QJNC ES A4?

QLLR is B0 Stepping and QJNC's stepping I haven't found out yet. No unlocked multi? So is there any advantage of an ES chip over a retail? Or is this a genuine OEM?

yes there's an advantage, statistically they will OC better and last longer than retail chips simply because they are hand picked from the best silicon. Keep the damn ES you wont regret it.

I heard the B0 stepping chips are not good overclockers, I was told I should be chasing B1 at best and then B2 after that. If I had the time I'd try them out.

If they are ES CPUs they are definatly not "new", and they likely have had some crazy overclock performed on them . ES chips are the testbed CPUs, they are early samples where they try to work out the bugs and see what the limits of the CPU are.

Just having a heatsink scuff deosn;t mean they aren't new if they were standard retail OEMs.....Intel tests a certain percentage of chips off each wafer to makes sure they work as advertised and there were no errors in production.

But if you are sure what you have are ESs, then they are not new

ES Chips are the Samples for testing so to speak. There not actually meant for Retail. However people for various reasons can get hold of them and you can usually find them on Ebay. I would get an ES if you can as there Multi is unlocked allowing for better overclockability.
