if this is true i might be grabbing a q6600 B2 also.
You can find alot of info here:

http://www.overclock.net/tankguys-pr...c-testing.html
http://www.overclock.net/intel-cpus/...mpression.html
http://www.overclock.net/hardware-ne...00-8400-a.html
http://www.overclock.net/intel-cpus/...400-e8500.html

These are all the 45nm threads I have, with alot of people warning eachother over the voltages. Btw... the 45mn's are definately the better choice, even though water cooling them is not needed to run 4.0-4.1Ghz 24/7 stable!! But, I imagine that with wc you could get even more out of them. 1.45v is what Intel says the E8500 can take before they start to "fry" and people are experiencing problems @ 1.4v already. (Intel states also that the maximum recomended voltages they can have is 1.362v)
Anyhow, a 45nm @ 4.0-4.1Ghz gives more opertunity than a Q6600, right?

I wish I could be so easily satisfied Alot of times 3dMark can benchmark succesfully, but to game I have to reduce the OC on my videocard.
