Get the Q6700 because the newer weeks of the quad 6600 is not so overclock friendly.

Yes, the Q6600 multi is 9 and the Q6700 multi is 10. But still, as I said that the newer Q6600 wont overclock so great. The newer quads have a stop @ about 3.4ghz while the Q6700 should go to 3.6ghz+.

Yes, the QX6700 is unlocked.

I'm only looking to get 3ghz out of this chip i don't want to push it to its limits.
post #6 of 35
All 3 chips will get 3.0GHz with little to no extra voltage. I'd still go with the Q6700 though since the rep of the newer Q6600s isn't so great.

A conservative @ 3G OC, the Q6600 will be fine and as said, likely hit 3.4 fairly easy.

Agreed. For 3G OC, they are fine. Depending on what you use this processor for, get the Qx6700 if you have budget for it. Otherwise, either Q6600 and Q6700 is fine but Q6700 does give you a potential higher OC if you want to in the near future.

If you are only aiming for 3ghz, maybe the q9450 is something to consider, although personally I'd go for the Q6600

Q6600 is a steal at $214 and free shipping at Newegg. It'll hit 3ghz at stock voltage pretty easily with a decent mobo (at least a p35).
