Default Q6600, old, new....

Hey guys,

I just bought a Q6600/MSI P45 Neo3 FIR/2x2Gb OCZ Reaper 1066 to upgrade one of my systems, but since then I've read some concerns regarding the overclocking potential of "new" Q6600 batches. First of all, does anyone know how I can tell if it's a "new" or "old" one. Does anyone know what the difference is? I was planning on going to 3GHz per core max, would that still be doable with the new batches? HSF is Scythe Zipang, and the case is very well vented with 120mm Papsts all around.

I'm asking cause I can still return / exchange any of the parts since they are still boxed, was planning on assembling this Tuesday.

While I'm at it, I am still using good ole Arctic Silver TP, I've been seeing some new brands being recommended. Has anyone recorded the actual differences in temp that I could achieve using something else?

Thanks!
