maybe the q6700 have a trend of lower VID's
but they will vary from chip to chip



also, chessmyantidrug,
it sounds like if you save the extra 30-40 bucks on the q6600 you'll buy an aftermarket cooler? and leave stock with the q6700?
correct me if i'm wrong.

edit: if your going to overclock, you'll pretty much NEED an aftermarket cooler that can handle it.
tell me the most you can spend on one and i'll go find one one newegg for ya

I'll probably end up buying an aftermarket cooler regardless. I know to achieve better overclocks, I'll have to. If the extra $50 is better spent on the processor, then I'll go that route. And with my affinity for RTS games, that's what it looks like.

I haven't decided what kind of cooling I'll go with, though I'll probably settle on a highly rated fan.

Get this fan:
http://www.jab-tech.com/Scythe-S-FLE...G-pr-4160.html

Pair that up with a Q6700 that has a lower VID, and you should be able to hit 4Ghz.

agreed on the TRUE (ThermalRight Ultra Extreme), great cooler.

another one like the TRUE is a tuniq tower 120

also, make sure to measure the inside of your case to make sure it fits!

Thanks for the suggestions. Would I be pairing the fan with the heat sink? Consider me slightly confused.

I'm going to have to go against what most recommended and say get the Q6600 and spend the savings on a better video card. Gaming systems are most often bottlenecked by GPU, not CPU.

low strife was suggesting a TRUE heatsink, and a fan to put on it (thats better than the stock one) to make the cooler awesome

the one i added in comes with a pretty good fan, unless you want to go buy another one that might be better.

The extra $50 I'd spend on a Q6700 wouldn't stop me from getting the video card I want.

Thanks.
I would think that by that time the Q9*50 series would have dropped in price, so you shouldn't rule them out.

I love how cool mine runs, and the cpu score dosen't get beat by a Q6** series untill about 3.9 ish.

Somthing to think about.

Oh and stay safe, been back myself for over a year now.

Id go with a 9450 or something 45nm.It will run cooler.I like the OC on the 6700 but would rather it ran that little bit cooler.
