Eh, still sticking with my Seasonic.

Also what is the difference between Q6600, and the Q6600 G0? My friend just bought the latter, and I forgot with the difference is, if thier is oine.

The two main revisions of the Q6600, is the older B3 stepping, and the newest G0 stepping. The G0 stepping consumes less power, producing less heat, therefore yielding better overclocking results.


Oh...I found that quote, I mentioned about single rails vs. multiple rails. Here:

On a single rail, all the parts that run on 12v would take power from that rail and the only power wasted would be the power that the computer doesn't need..

Man that's awesome!....I'm getting the G0 and the Ultra-120 extreme, except the P5K Deluxe, but the DS3R should be good.

You can't guarantee a 3.9GHz overclock on the Q6600, because every chip overclocks differently, but it should come close.

Oh, i dont plan on trying to squeeze every mhz out of it, but i was really disappointed to see my b3 running at 50C idle especially when its not supposed to go over 61 at load. The g0's can take up to 70 degrees load correct?

Well you were using stock cooling, correct? That's why it was running pretty warm. If you had an aftermarket cooler like the Tuniq, the B3 would of ran much cooler.
