Well thats not true, not in my case anyway.

I got a Q6600 about 1 month ago and i can run 3.9ghz Ghz stable at 1.5v.

If your looking for a more modest OC mines 3.4GHz @ 1.24v 100% stable

Maybe more % are crappy but not all

@OP:

I went from an E6600 to a Q6600 and have been VERY happy with my purchase, though I've yet to lap the HSF or CPU itself I've been able to OC stable to 3.4GHz at 1.38vCore with loads around 55-57c on my 780i. Gaming is pretty nice now since my CPU never bottlenecks my GPUs anymore, so that aspect is gone all together. Time for my dual monitors and new PSU!

The E8400 costs $6 less then the Q6600. The E8400 has 6MB of shared L2 and the Q6600 has 2x4MB L2 that I am assuming each is shared between two cores.

i think that E8400 would have to really OC to make up for that. though the E8400 runs at 1333 and the Q6600 at 1066 but in my expierence that hasn't ammounted to a whole lot.
