You can even get 3.5 GHz on Q6600 with water cooling. The first time i saw a quad-core i thought the external clock speed was divided into 4 cores but its not. It is actually each core running at that speed.

Most games don't take advantage of the extra cores, I think that's the main point.

I was running a Yorkfield at 4.6GHZ, then swapped it for E8500 at 4.6GHZ, didn't see any difference in crysis at all.

But Yorkfield is ten times more expensive than E8xxx series.

It doesn't work like that at all.

Q6600 since I have not heard of anyone recieving B3 this year. The e6850 is the biggest waste of money outside of the Qx6850. You can save money on the CPU and buy a better motherboard that will allow you to OC the hell out of it.

you can get that clock without w/c. so it's pretty obvious which one to pick. i mean what's better than burning a cd/dvd, toggling through 2 games online, and watching a movie? almost nothing .

unless you're getting the 6850 for like ~$200 bucks it's not worth it. now just find a good m/b for that q66

I just bought a Q6600 at microcenter for $199... i wouldnt take a 6850 for free now. On a lighter note mine is a G0 @ 3.0ghz @ 1.21v. My idle is around 22c and full load is 45c. Oh and i have a CNPS9700 NT on it...

^^ I 2nd that.

I run my B3 with a Tuniq @ 3.6ghz for testing/benching.. 3ghz [430*7] for daily use and it never breaks 60c even under Orthos [this time of year ]. Havent got the G0 from CD yet.. so cant comment there.
