Just RMA'ed my b3 q6600.... what are the chances....

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Hey everyone, this is my first post on these forums.

I was wondering what the chances are that I will get a q6600 with the "GO" stepping, since I just RMA'd my b3 revision today. I have always had problems keeping it cool enough, and lately it was reaching load temps of 80C on stock settings and voltage with a Tuniq Toqwr 120. I have reseated the Tuniq around 5 times, with arctic silver each time, with no help.

If you order from clubit or tank guys, you can get a guarenteed G0.

May I ask where you ordered from?

Where did you get it from?


Welcome to OCN

Wow, crappy temps with the TT, hopefully with RMA they give you a G0, I imagine pretty good chances of it really. RMA to Intel?

Your chances of getting a G0 are very good, since Intel doesn't make B3s anymore.

OK first of all thanks for all the posts. I did RMA it to Intel so no guarantees I guess but I'm hoping for that "GO"....

Its doubtful you will get another B3
post #8 of 8
I would second the above posts - most of the B3's are out of the distribution channels and Intel is only manufacturing G0's now, so the likely chance of you getting a G0 is high.
