(another) E6600/E6420 batch question.

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
hey fellow OC'ers, sorry for asking this question if it has been asked before, I'm recently looking to upgrade to either E6600/E6420 and I was wondering which batches are good OC'ers?
Could someone explain how I can tell from the box too?
thanks alot everyone!
D~
PS: Which of these C2D's will fit my system the best right now, and for a later upgrade to a 88GTS 640mb?

You can not tell the batch from the box.......Unless you can see the IHS from the box....

You need to see the stepping code on the CPU and this is usally hidden inside the box

correct! the older steppings for the 6600 are better (weeks 27-29 a+b the best, 31-33 a+b also great), and the 6420s so far have been based on luck.

If you are at a physical store you have a good shot at picking a good CPU out. The CPU/ IHS is visible through a little window in the plastic box and you should look for a number like this: L707A234 (just an example). 07 is the week and I guess 07A is what the batch is called.

My L624A819 Is volt hungry, runs hot, and is only an OK OC'r. If u get a e6600 and get the L624A you might wanna RMA it :/

here, take a look @ what other have gotten.
