sweetness, thanks kobe, i saved a good 35 bucks, plus those fans would be handy, i may get a second fan control.

anybody know if its worth buying a q6700 over a q6600 (after the price drop of course) and paying double the price?

the only diff between them is that u can change the multipler on the qx6700.

if ur goin to o/c xtremely then u could get it, but i got the q6600 and ive got mine at 3.1 right now 56c load in a small-mid case and tuniq. so its a waste of money as i see it

As of right now, DDR3 is not worth the price/performance ratio, yet.
