E6700 is a waste of money. You pay £60 more for a higher multiplier and clock speed, which the E6600 can reach and break without a sweat.

How do you know what week/version it is?
It says on the top of the chip, for example L629F1293 would be week 29F.

Hmmm. But the 6700 is somewhat better? But the 6600 can reach it, with ocing though.. Hmm I suppose I have a lot of thinking to do lol, thanks guys.

In what sense is the E6700 better ?

I get a feeling most of us agree the E6600 is better

True, But higher multiplier and clock speed. Does that make it somewhat better?

And with the E6600 you have to oc to get it there.

Depends what you consider better. If you only care about stock, yep, the E6700 is obviously the winner, but the E6600 still takes the price/performance award since the price difference is greater than the performance difference.

when you take overclocking into account, the E6600 closes the gap in most cases (depending on version/week).

Obviously, it's a bit of luck whether you get a 'good' chip.... but that goes for both.

I had an E6700 and E6600... the E6600 was the better clocker. Now, I have an E6600 and an E6420, and it seems that the E6420 clocks as good as the E6700 I had did (not sure yet, since not done with an overnight Orthos)

If you've already ordered your E6600, there would be no point in returning it for a negligable if not non-existent performance boost.

I was originally going to go for a E6700 or X6800 but everyone on this forum guided me towards E6600... and to be honest I'm glad I listened to them.

Thanks man, That helps alot. But see, I don't really want to oc my processor, cause you hear it'll die out faster. And I don't want to spend money that I worked for it to die out faster. But somethink like RAM, I'll oc for sure, cause RAM is pretty cheap depending on what you buy, But I'll think about staying with the 6600 Cause I do want to OC, just not that much. Cause the Core 2 Duo with the setup I'm getting all stock is gonna own anyways right?

I say *should* because it has the higher multiplier, meaning that you could keep your FSB lower while gaining a higher proc speed. There are other variables that could make the E6600 outperform the E6700 by a long shot and visa versa, who knows.

All I know is the E6700 @ max multi @ 400FSB = 4.0ghz
E6600 @ max multi @ 400FSB = 3.6ghz

That makes the E6700 "theoretically" better for overclocking. But then again, it will take more voltage and power to get it there, and blah blah.

Get the E6700 if you have sucky RAM and want to hit 4ghz.
Spend $115 on G.Skill HZs and save $100 by getting the E6600, because you'll get higher than 400mhz FSB on a lot of boards easy as pie.
