I'd say it still boils down to the luck of the draw.
Actually it just shows that before you buy a CPU no matter what it is you should be careful to get the good stepping and for this occasion get the stepping of the E6420 that were 3.5 and not the ones that were closer to 3GHz.

That may be true, but good luck to you trying to get your hands on one of the B2 steppings for the E6400. They no longer manufacture them.

The 6420's are hitting about 3.5 at 4.25-4.5 right now so thats pretty good if you ask me. The 6320's aren't hitting as high as clocks. Also the 6600's and 4300's are putting out particular weak batches ATM.

The 6420's are the sweet spot right now if your looking for a good overclocker. Also the extra cache is really liked by some apps. Gaming you'll probably see a 5%-10% gain depending on the game. Source games really like the extra cache and most other CPU intensive games do as well.

I bought my e6420 at first price drop for $186 and it's still kicking. Highest I have gotten it is 3.3ghz stable but run it at 3.2ghz (400*8) 24/7. It's a good chip and I find myself wanting an E8400 but really I have no necessity to change it, until nehalem anyway.

dont you have the 680i? mine is the crappy 680i LT... i DID jsut put dual hr-05-sli's onit though, which is probably why i'm at 500x7...

UGH! I wish someone would say, 4.0ghz is no problem for the e6420, I'd I'd pop that multi up to 8! But word is that it doesnt do much more than 3.5

I did about 15 min small ffts, now i am trying OCCT (Auto30min)
