The newer Q6600 has B3 stepping. It will run hotter and will overclock less compared to older Q6600 with G0 stepping.

The Q9400 is slightly faster with newer tech and consumes less power.
good one dude, you read my mind.

sorry i forgot to link the op it.


The only thing ATi can render faster than nVidia is the BSOD


<<< i like rep :D

Steppings are basically revisions of cpu chips. Don't get a q6600 if you plan to OC because you won't get very far. the q9400 is a much better choice.

as for a cpu cooler this is about as good as it gets - Sunbeam CR-CCTF 120 mm Core-Contact Freezer CPU Cooler W/TX-2 - CPU Fans & Heatsinks

it also comes with tx-2 which is the best TIM (thermal interface material)
