G0 & Qx6700...

post #1 of 21
Thread Starter 
Hi guys.

When it comes to purchasing a new processor, how do you find out what revision it is?.

I ask because i'd love to get hold of a QX6700 but G0 (current one is B3) is this possible?. does the QX6700 have G0's?.

+ Rep to all useful posts.

Thanks!.

I might be wrong but I thought the QX6700 never had a G0 revision. The Q6600s and Q6700s do though.

The Q6600s and Q6700s overclock better than the QX6700 because the QX6700 runs alot hotter. I've never seen a QX6700 get higher than a Q6600 or Q6700 on air or water.

If you havn't bought this yet, I'd suggest a Q6600 or a Q6700... Both should get you atleast 3.2GHz, most likely 3.6GHz. The QX6700 will likely only get around 3.3GHz before it gets to hot.

Speaking from experience here, I actually sold my QX6700 for my Q6600.

There is no QX6700 that is g0. Its new version is the Q6700 which is a g0 without the unlocked multipliers.

Wow, you sold your QX6700 for the Q6600?.

Did you ever overclock your QX6700?. what did you get it to if so?. ive currently got mine to 3.56GHz. i used to run @ 1.5v (with vdroop mod. temps are incredibly high...load 70/85c. idle round 50c) but i'm currently testing it @ 1.44v and its working flawlessly with much lower temps..

its very odd. when i was testing for stability @ 3.56GHz this processor would crash on anything lower than 1.48v, and now its flying on 1.44....oh the mysteries of overclocking...

I suspected that. i heard people saying that a G0 version of the QX6700 existed, but i wasn't too sure if it was true.

Do either of you guys know how i would be able to find a G0 processor?

Woot, rock on with the QX6700!

Mine does 3.6 @1.39 V, and 3.8 at around 1.425 V
I still can't get 4 Ghz half-assed stable, and it bugs me to no end.

EDIT: I don't think they ever made a G0 revision of the QX6700, IIRC, it's replacement was the QX6850, which is a G0.

I'm certain retailers would be more than happy to sell me some older revision just to shift stock

The QX6700 sucks at overclocking compared to the Q6600 and Q6700. The highest I got my QX6700 was 3.2GHz (v1.35v) and this was 78C load. I'm not a noob and had a big typhoon VX cooler (which is a rather good cooler). my Q6600 is at 3.25GHz (1.26v) and loads at 65C, and my cooler is worse. These are torture test temps of course, game temps are much lower.

Keep in mind I got the QX6700 the day it was released and they may have been improved by then. I am MUCH happier with my Q6600.

Interesting, Qx6800 has G0 and B3 but Qx6700 has only B3. My friend has one. It stuck at 3.2G. I would go for Q6700.
post #10 of 21
QX6700 was never revised to a G0 stepping sorry. It was a bad processor imo, it ran so hot it wasn't even funny. This is half the reason ppl sold their QX6700's on Ebay and got a Q6600 GO.

Right now, the best CPU to get is the Q6700 GO
