Hey SLACR, GO! (Q6600 G0 thread)

post #1 of 496
Thread Starter 
1st pre-order overnighted:


WOOOOHOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!




This thread is supposed to be all about theoretical possibilities regarding how crazy fast this thing is gonna run for
us, so feed me some numbers and if they seem to be plausible to other posters I can add the info to this first post...

Also, if you are one of the lucky ones with a Q6600 G0 in your possession then go to the sister thread Hey SLACR, G0 higher!
where I hope we can share each other's experience with the chip and we can figure out the best MoBo Vcore
temps FSBs and benches for the retail chip!

IF YOU DON'T HAVE A MoBo YET THEN GET ONE THAT USES THE Intel P35 AS A NORTH BRIDGE

So far it is the best chipset to OC Quads, now as to which board exactly that will largely depend on your
particular needs. However the ASUS boards, Abit and Gigabyte boards are all proven to OC B3's well.

FSB walls per mobo (B3 & G0, but anything a B3 did a G0 should do too)
more info here


ABIT IP35 pro ~ 490
ASUS Commando ~ 457
ASUS P5B DELUXE wifi ~ 450
Gigabyte P35C-DS3R ~ 450
EVGA 122-CK-NF68-A1 ~ 450
ASUS P5K Premium ~ 450
ABIT AB9 QuadGT ~ 444
ASUS P5N32-E SLI ~ 375

Actual attained clocks per MoBo:
ASUS P5K: 4.0GHz
EVGA 680i (rev. 2): 4.0GHz
ASUS P5N32-E SLI: 3.35GHz (limited by 375FSB ceiling)

SPECIFICATIONS: Intel specs page for the Q6600 G0
Multiplier: x9
Bus Speed: 1066 MHz
L2 Cache: 8MB
Thermal Design Power: 95W
Voltage: 1.1V - 1.372V
Thermal Spec: 71C (not 73.2C?)
Stock Speed: 2.40 GHz

Documented OC potential:
Air: 3.6 + (3.8GHz reached by many! 4.0 benched by many!)
Water: 3.8 +
Chilled water: 3.8 ++
Phase:4.0 +?! *


I am strongly considering picking up a G0 stepping Q6600 and like many others I have a reservation for a
guaranteed G0 stepping with Tank Guys.
FINAL PRICE $295 - $5 discount with Google Checkout code "5google" + shipping

So, in the effort to feel I am worthy of owning one I am starting this thread trying where we can gather all
known info and I'll try to sum it up on this first post. It will need some edits. I just want to get a discussion going
so I can learn more about the chip in hopes to increase my OC potential, and so I have a better idea of what to
expect before I pay:



G0 stepping can be recognized by the 06FB CPUID. (The first Q6600 was stepping B3 recognized by
06F7) > The Model number also changes from SL9UM for the B3 to SLACR for the G0 > The SLACR part should be on
the box at the end of the PROD CODE# = VIOLA!

G0 stepping Q6600, should start shipping as soon as August 6th.

I'd be VERY surprised if we don't have them all out by then.
It is slated to require 95 watts down from 110 from the current Q6600. This is usually an indicator of higher
OC potential!!!

It is also slated to have a higher tCase which means it will be rated for higher temps. In this case 11C higher than
the B3 stepping tCase of 62.2C giving it a 73.2C rating. (71C on Intel spec sheet)

As far as I know there is nobody else that will take the time to figure this out steppings when you are buying
your CPU other than TankGuys. So if you want one now you might want get a $5 reservation with them or you'll
have to wait till the B3 stepping is sold and gone from Newegg's warehouse...


Please let me know asap about any mistakes that might have gone over my head and I will edit right away.
Specially if you know if the spec voltage will be lowered or if the lower wattage requirement will simply make
the chip more stable at a specific given Vcore.
Also please help me with recommendations on how this info should be summarized and feed me more so I can
add to this short simple post.


- As of July 19th Tank Guys had "about 270" pre-orders for Q6600 G0's -
- however OCN's Audi is the certified first reservation holder per Tank -
- For more info including a detailed list of the order GO HERE
-
- Good news: the first shipment might be as big as 450 CPUs -

Submitting:
The order number should be taken from the e-mail you receive from "sales@tankguys.biz". Also, please check the
"detailed invoice" link you receive, it must correspond with the number in that email. Just to make sure it is 100%
accurate. And please... start off your post with "#### - YourName", then hit enter a few times so I can see it
clearly and C & V (copy and paste) it.

Canadian, eh?:

Using 30% as a rough guide is usually good, though sometimes they don't get charged at all... so it's tough to say.

Australian mate?

...it was reported an Australian site has the Q6600 for pre-order seperate from the other Q6600's which
are in stock...so the ones on pre-order must be G0 stepped...? but not guaranteed...? Anywho...
( ::sorry link was not posted:: )

ASUS P5N32-E SLI?:

If you have a P5N32-E SLI board then I am sorry to hear that and check this thread out:
http://www.overclock.net/intel-mothe...d-failure.html


Note about Tank Guys:
This is not an fun process for TankGuys, and they are not charging us a premium for the trouble of guaranteeing us
the G0 stepping so please use Google Checkout when paying, it saves them money and that's the least we could do
for them. Also you get to enter "5google" for a discount when submitting through Google Checkout!

To put $5 and shipping down on a GUARANTEED G0 with Tank Guys GO HERE

Thank you,
USlatin

I am on the fence between the Q6600 and holding out for a native quad...

I can't complain with the 1080p capabilities of my 3.15GHz E6300 even on the 32-bit world... so I can be patient if it will mean I will be able to run a fade to and from severely CC'ed clips displaying a full 23.976fps at fill screen 1:1 pixels on the Gateway with full rez...

Personally that's why I am starting this thread... And for that aspect you are one of the main guys I am hoping will contribute... especially based on your experience cutting in FCP. Though I really hope I could come over with my OS HDD and we tried running Vegas on your rig... (if you still had your B3 Q6600)

I am also interested on what 3Dmark06 scores might be within the grasp of the G0 Q6600 and the Native Quads...

well my Windows install is about to disappear in favor of Parellels so it won't be a fair comparison. However, if you feel that you can hold out for actual native quad support from intel or Amd then you should, I believe.

Nope, not yet. I suspect 2008, off the top of my head. Maybe sooner if we're lucky though
