Just get E6550 or E6750, they cost about the same, but they consume much less power and they overclock way much better than 6000+

no, they cost much more. And they're nowhere near as "much better" as people make them out to be.

6000+ is about equal to E6600

isn't the 6000+, which is about equal to the E6600, less than $170 right now?

I don't think a DS3 will automatically make it more stable

okay, different chipset. Still, I don't think the stability of the chip is going to change with the motherboard if it is already able to reach 3.8+

E6550 and E6600 are very close in performance. E6550 is only 66MHz slower than E6600, but it has faster FSB.
