The only downside at least thats what I think, is that the FSB is only 1066 not 1333MHz.

You can easily overclock the Q6600's FSB to 1333.

Yeah after reading some of that maybe the q6600 is the better route. Oh well, ill have plenny of time to make my decision, and since ill be waiting a week to get it, ill have time to see more reviews of the q6600 and reviews of the new 1333mhz FSB cpu's.

Default Re: Intel will drop the prices on July 22

I wonder if these new models are any different from the current models, apart from the name and their default FSB.

My E6300 and mobo, and probably most other Conroes and Conroe compatible mobo's can do 333MHz on stock voltages easily.

If they are gonna be the same chips, apart from the name and default FSB, the overclock will be the same I presume. It's still a good thing for non-overclockers with a 1333 board.

Kudos to lowering the prices, though. I'd love a CPU with a higher multi for less money (my 975X chipset doesn't clock too well).
