Default Tigerdirect and the E8400

I just spoke to someone at Tigerdirect.com to cancel my order for the E8400 and I asked her when they will be back in stock and she said by the end of next week. I don't want to wait that long so I think I am going to buy the q6600 and maybe overclock it to 3.0ghz.

Well I have never overclocked before so I don't know how hard it is. I may not do it all, I will just have to wait and see.

What cooler are you getting. (get a true ) Make sure you get a g0 revision q6600. With a good cooler, 3.6ghz is easy. Also what board you going with?

I bought the arctic cooling freezer 7 pro. How do I make sure I get G0 revision?

I bought the Gigabyte GA-P35-DS3L.
