I do I check the Week, Code, and Revison of my CPU? I was able to find the Revision (b2) in CPUZ, but the week and code were not listed. Any pointers?

Look on the actual CPU itself for this information

Checking the CPU itself is the logical answer if you do not own the box for the processor (i.e. OEM).<br />
<br />
Date: If you own the processor box however look for a line resembling this on the side of the packaging:<br />
L6<b>28</b>A276. This is a week 28 processor <img src="/images/smilies/wink.gif" border="0" alt="" title="Wink" class="inlineimg" /><br />
<br />
The code I believe you are referring to will/should be directly below that line.

Great! Thanks for your help guys. Luckily, I did save the box because that is where I keep the stock cooling for this CPU (never used it since I use water cooling). I definitely didn't want to take off my cpu block just to test this. If anyone is wondering, I have a week 28 e6600.

There is speculation and some information to show that certain weeks overclock better than others.

Congratulations on having a week 28 <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/wink.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Wink"><br>
Due to the Silicon used during week 28 these chips will overclock very well <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Smile">

</div>So the actual silicon in the chips makes it OC better? How? Does it repel heat better? Enable better conductivity?

</div>With increased purity in Silicon better results are obtained. <br />
The conductivity, resistance, current handling, and other physics properties are more effective and efficient with Silicon purity levels.<br />
It is believed that the Silicon used in the Week 28 Core 2 Duo E6600 processors was the purist of them all (so far) and therefore is more stable and "overclockable" the other week variants <img src="/images/smilies/wink.gif" border="0" alt="" title="Wink" class="inlineimg" />

Well I have a week 28 and I believe everyone here knows my problems as I've posted them countless times. Mine cant even boot up at stock at 1.2 volts so I think they are crap and overrated haha. Wish I would have stuck with AMD

I am running my E6600 at 3.3GHz with stock voltage <img src="/images/smilies/wink.gif" border="0" alt="" title="Wink" class="inlineimg" /><br />
<br />
Theoretical standard voltage is 1.3v, not 1.2v, in case you were not aware <img src="/images/smilies/smile.gif" border="0" alt="" title="Smile" class="inlineimg" />

Well I'm glad some people got "working" conroes lol.<br />
<br />
Is there anyway when looking at the stepping if you can find out where the processor was made? Kind of like a mint mark on a penny or dime? I'm just curious, think it would be neat to know where my little CPU started life haha

</div>I do not believe you can determine where the processor was manufactured from looking at it's identification number on the processor box.<br />
<br />
For you to determine where the processor was manufactured you must look on the processor itself. The name of the fabrication/production location (country) will/should be written on top of the processor die <img src="/images/smilies/smile.gif" border="0" alt="" title="Smile" class="inlineimg" /> <br />
<br />
Intel owns a moderate selection of 65nm fabrication plants, therefore you can hazard a guess, to a degree, as to where your processor was manufactured.

I can imagine all the numbers after 628 in the number off the chip tell you which production line it came off of. Of course, that info is proprietary and only a few will know it.

Im running mine at stock speeds @1.23volts, cant OC yet do to this crappy Intel stock fan keeping my idle temps @50C

Fiddy degrees? Even with a stock cooler you should be at a lower idle temp than that. HSF seated good with good paste (AS5)?<br />
I work for Intel and I start wafers in the R&D fab in Oregon. We ramped up the 65nm process that CWMA's are run on and we run production Conroes, Meroms, Woodcrests and Allendales. It's true about the different lots of incoming Si. Different Si vendors and different lot numbers for each vendor makes it hard to track what was uses unless the processors SN is traced back thru it's lineage to the start. THAT would be a chore. Even I don't have that info.<br />

my volt is setup for 1.3250 in the bios but reads around 1.27-1.29 in the bios/speedfan or any other program and I'm running about 47ish at idle right now so something isn't right
