listen to him. Im sure he has quite a bit of experience with those quads...lol

The Q9300 are not good OCers especially because of the 7.5 multi.

I was going to get a Q9300, but changed my mind when I found out it only has a 7.5X multi. TheQ6700 has a 10X multi which will give you much more flexibility.

i would go for the Q6600 since its cheaper and a ton of people have been able to get 3.5-3.6 on air. you can also pay a little bit more for a good batch on ebay or forums.

What is a good batch? What are the numbers and how do I know what I am getting?

you guys are worrying too much about the multiplier here.
if his board can do 450mhz on the FSB even with a q6600 he can get 4ghz. ok yeah so the q6700can get 4.5ghz at that same fsb but then again are we talked about a phase change system here or a air/water cooled setup? if it's phase then I understand why guys you worried about the 10x but my understanding was this was under normal cooling so it wouldn't matter at that point.

I would say that compared with what I've been seeing lately from the procs that people are buying new right now your vid is not considered high.

That's the problem...all of this multiplier stuff is purely theoretical and often doesn't play out like that in real life. What we've seen practically is that the Q6700 can sometimes have just a bit more squeezed out of it than the 6600 but too much more and it isn't stable or it requires WAY too much voltage. Also, to get more out of it one must have a low vid otherwise it's not much different from the 6600 from what I'm seeing.

The chance is good for 10x Q6700 to OC higher but not a promise thou. It still comes down to how you justify that extra $60 for that extra 2/300MHz. Most importantly, cooling, vid, and the combination of cpu, board and ram are the key. To me, I would go for Q6700 if the price difference isn't buge.

Exactly.

The 9x multiplier on the Q6600 is usually enough to see the chips full potential in most circumstances. But the 10x multi on the Q6700 can be beneficial in some situations (i.e. overclocks over 4GHz, and you better have some darn good cooling.)

That's a very good point.
