Not that this really matters but the QX6700 has an unlocked multiplier too.

E6850 its not worth it get an E6750 instead or a Q6600 but don't get an E6850 because the E6750 can pass that speed, if you want to save more $$ you could even buy a E6550 and overclock it as well.

Well this is why i called first. The order confirmation says SLACR so if i get it and its a b3 i'll be returning it and/or disbuting the charge since its not what i ordered Actually, the item itself is a SLACR rather than just a q6600 that they "guarantee".
