Thing is though (and someone correct me if i'm wrong) but i've heard the q6600's have had terrible batches recently that can't overclock as high. Doesn't the q6700 have a lower VID too?
but they will vary from chip to chip
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
