Stepping is like revisions and stuff made after the release of the chip I believe?

To find your stepping you have to acutally look at the CPU. It will be printed on the IHS.

No software will tell you what it is.

Stepping is what week the CPU came off the line on. It has nothing to do with if they revised the chip or not. I doubt they're changing the specs of the chip every week.

Weeks 28B - 30B are considered the 'cream of the crop' when it comes to overclocking E6600's. Those chips are well known and documented to easily hit 3.6+ on air with reasonable vCore settings. I've got a Week 31F chip, and it does 3.0GHz on stock (1.2875v) volts, with absolutely no stability issues. I've pushed it to 3.4 stable, but anything above that is unreachable with this particular chip. User beware, YMMV.

EDIT: Nvm, you don't have it. 45G is still horrible.
