Default Conroe Release

I suggest this be the official conroe thread for the next few days/weeks as Conroe is unvailed. It is supposed to be released tomorrow. Is that like 12PM tonight? No one has really said much on the chip lately and it seems like were only 6hrs away from the release according to the article. Is this still standing?

I'm still not impressed... there is nothing I do that wil require that much horsepower... and half the time I'm into my games so much that I don't "look around" to see the scenery! LOL If it can cook my eggs in the morning, THEN... I'll be impressed!

the cheapest one is like $190 or $200 or something but the E6300 and E6400 suck because they have 2MB L2 Cache, but then the E6600 and uP have 4MB l2 cache, and the E6600 is about $330 or something.
