You don't need to worry about the week of manufacture of your board, only the CPU.

How you check it, is both easy and quite difficult. The week is in a code printed on the CPU, that usually you won't be able to see until you have actually bought the CPU. Some retailers might let you know what week a CPU is before you buy it, but it's likely that most won’t. You could get a chip from eBay and ask what the codes on it are and get the manufacture week that way. Sometimes eBay can be risky though .

Based on everything I've read on this forum so far, the best weeks to look out for are 28, 29 and 30. There may be others, but those are the only ones I can remember right now. Search the forum and/or Google for more info .

im running e6400 on gigabyte ds3 with f7 bios and kingston value ram at 3.2 stock voltage only chip set and fsp +0.1 also mem because my mem is 667 running at 800 mhz 4/5/5/12

also tried at 3.4 but i don't see much deference in 24/7 use so 3.2 found most stable and not heat hungry ...

so yes your board can easy give u what u look for if its for 24/7 use 3.2 for records and stuff max i could get on that board with my settings was 3.8 didn't check if it was stable and i think it can get 4.000 if u try hard...

Both the e6300 and e6400 can go to 3.0ghz - 3.2 the e6400 has a higher multiplier though so the e6300 is usually recommended. The e6600 has a higher L2cache (double the e6300 and e6400) and should be able to make it to 3.4ghz - 3.6ghz without too much trouble. So yes it can overclock as high and higher than the x6800 at stock. But the QX6700 is quad core so good luck outperforming that. Maybe you could at this point in time due to the fact that quad core is not highly supported but in 6 months or so the quad core will pwn.

Gigabyte announce a version 2 of most of its 965p motherboards this week.

The GA-965P-DS3p Rev 2.0 might be worth looking at.

It has more substantial power than the DS3, has an ICH8R, Firewire, newly designed heatsinks and it requires the 8pin ATX12v connector instead of the 4 pin.

i read that you can OC a 6400 to equal that of a 6700 or a X6800, is this possible, and if it is, with what mobo?
I'm at 3.2GHz quite easily on my E6400.
I've heard others go past 400FSB.
I'm having trouble going over 400MHz but 3.2GHz is flying anyway..

You can overclock it very high, but it won't compare to the 6600 6700 or X6800 simply because they have twice the L2 cache
on this note i do agree in a way, look at the posted 1m scores and the 32m scores in our benchmark section and you will see that in the 1m runs the extra cache helps alot in perofrmance whilst in the 32m run my chip rocks the competition that was rocking it in the 1m run, its the quicker runs that it helps in and i guess it helps a little in gaming but i have no complaints


my e6400 is doing 478x8 24/7 (on phase of course) and i can get it as high as 488x8 and still run super pi so im very happy with this chip and if you get it i am sure you wont be disapointed

also from my understanding the best weeks are 28/29 in B flavor and then there are others that do good also but i cant remember
