Its G0 Stepping which is great for over clocking and runs coo AND
How do you know if it is G0 Stepping? I am looking into ordering one but wasn't sure if the oem or retail one was or not.

well at the time i didnt know it was g0 stepping ... infact i didnt even know that g0 and b3 even existed ... i figured a q6600 is a q6600


So i bought it and later found out that i got lucky it was a G0

How do I know - simply ... i bought it. (I am speaking about the link i sent you too... that is a q6600 w/ G0 Stepping)

As for other q6600's i dont know .. newegg doesnt even list that as a specification which they should .. i figure they dont b/c knowone that knows what they are doing would buy a b3... lol

good luck tho

At this point in time, it's impossible to get a B3. G0's have been out for over 8 months. Any old B3 inventory would have been cleared out long ago. A G0 Q6600 is guaranteed in most major e-tailers/retailers.

I'm sure more and more games down the road will utilize quads, but I'm pretty confident it'll be at least a year or two before it becomes standard. Game developers won't alienate their customers with considerably high system requirements, or at least I don't think they would. It wouldn't be smart business on their part. I'm pretty sure dual-core processors aren't minimum requirements these days so it'll be quite a while before quads are.

I like my Q9300. I think it should be relatively easy to get 3.2ghz out of this chip for 24/7 use. In stock form its faster than a stock Q6600 but I would like to see a Q9300 against a Q6600/Q6700 with the same % OC on each.

I would stay away from the Q9300. On air, you can probably push a Q9450 as far as it can go- with water, the relatively low multi could become an issue, depending. (IE, you'd need 500FSB for 4.0GHZ) It's a great chip though. The Q6600 is a GREAT deal right now, and what I went with.

A word of advice: I'd go with a proven, used chip. Ask for screenies with 8+ hours of Prime95 with CPU-Z, coretemp etc open. The guy who sold me mine claimed 3.7 @ 1.5, (not too impressive,) but i have been getting more like 3.6 on just over 1.5 with water

I know that a used chip might have been abused and might not last as long, but to be honest I've never had a chip die on me EVER. Honestly, in 4 years will you care THAT much if the chip dies? I mean 4-year old chips (P4) go for like $10.

Just my $.02

I went with the 9300. I had the same debate you were having before my purchase. I did a lot of research and out of all the tests that I could find, the 9300 came out on top - overclocked, or stock. I wish I had some links that I could give you. Anyways, running mine at 3.0ghz wasn't too hard. The speed increase from 2.5 to 3.0 is pretty awesome with this chip. I am currently using my computer for CAD, Gaming, 3d modeling, and 3d Rendering. I am definitely going to push this chip to its limits. So far, so good. I couldn't be happier with my purchase.

If you are going to randomly buy q66/6700 off newegg or something, your better off getting a q9450 since they scale easily and have extremely low temperatures and voltages. Do not go q9300 unless you want a minimal overclock, plus the cache cut makes it not worth the money at all.
why not use loadline on a 45nm?

About those links... Here is one that I found earlier.

Just goes to show you that not everything on paper adds up. People in the auto racing world know this best. The most HP isn't always the fastest...
