As I understand it, people have had issues on certain boards where a q6600 dosen't have. I'm no expert, but if you hear it enough you start to believe it...

Much like the AMD dual core optimizer that isn't for the Opteron 939's...

Thats interesting as I havnt heard anything of the such. As far as the 939 optis I never had a problem with any of them on any of my several 939 boards. I did have to update a few bios's though.

Interesting none the less.

Look, I'm not saying don't buy one. In fact I want one. I would just want to make sure that it would work well with the board I buy, with the programs I use. A little research could save a big hassel.

Aside from the higher thermal limit 71 for the q6600, and 85 for the xeon, are there any other differences?

that is THE only reason I got the 3210 OVER the q6600...I know me and I need that higher limit LOL

I would say go with the 3210 or 3220 just because of that.

Also I saw someone post a few back that said the 3220 was = to q6600.

I thought the 3210 was = to q6600???

SUPPOSEDLY the x3210/x3220 were cut from a better part of the silicon wafer....dont know if I believe that, BUT if its made for servers, then its made to last a LONG time, 24/7/365

FYI- if you are looking for a G0 stepping X3210, the one I ordered this month from Newegg was produced in January- so you have a good chance of getting a recent one.
