Okay, here we go. There are probably 800 threads regarding the E6xxx series thus far, and I'm sure I am about to ask a redundant question. Did I get a good chip? Stepping...?

apparently the "B" stepping is the better clocker, but like WaxShop stated that still is a very nice stepping

I had asked if they had a good stepping, and the cpu "expert" looked at me with dismay. I think she though I said "get to steppin". She hadn't a clue as to what I was referring. Yeah, "expert my ass"...

K here what i found out.

Stepping doesn't do jack. Period. It just doesn't do jack!!!

The best "stepping" is for you to try it out. Thats the best way to see if you're chip performs good or bad.

I had a bunch of E6600 steppings some match with others but the 2 chips perform totally opposite.

I'm actually building a box for someone that ordered from Newegg and he got a 28B.

So basically what your saying is steppings mean everything in the whole wide world, and without them we would all perish in a fiery vortex of doubt.
