ya i got a tuniq, and a maximus formula with crucial ram and a q6600, not even lapped either. the tuniq has a good stock surface. if you get a good vid and a G0 steping you should be able to clock just as high as me.

lapped means that i dditn sand down either the cpu or the heat sink to give a flater surface, it also give u a lower temp. but mine are very low allready.

I would get the quad gt, and I have the maximus.
My only reason is that if you plan on ever doing really high fsb, then you have to level up your ram too. You cant set the dram:freq ratio. rather annoying. So to get really high (like my 4.5 ghz suicide stuff) then you have to run your ram really fast to get it to boot. (like my ddr800 was at 1000 at like 6-5-5-19 or something just to boot.

so quad gt, cheaper, just as good

Does Newegg sell the G0 Revision Q6600 and does it make a difference?

How can you tell if its G0 or not?

edit: My zipcode is 99702 and I try to type it in to see what shipping is and it says "This Shipping option is not available for State:AK " I dont think Clubit ships to Alaska...
