Default What's G0 mean?

I'm looking at ClubIT Product - Intel Core 2 Quad Q6600 G0 Stepping Kentsfield 2.40GHz 8MB L2 LGA 775 Processor Retail BX80562Q6600 SLACR from clubit, and it says g0. What does that mean?

from my understanding its the revision of the original quads.
Theyre better, stay cooler and have better oc capability.

We recommend people getting the q6600 from clubbit since they guarantee a go stepping one.

yeah they run cooler than the b3 steppings.

Many of the B3's clock quite well, but after 3.2-3.4ghz or so heat is very difficult to control.

Further reading:

Stepping is a designation used by Intel and AMD to identify how much the design of a microprocessor has advanced from the original design. The stepping is identified by a combination of a letter and a number.

Typically, the first version of a microprocessor comes out with stepping A0. As design improvements occur, later versions are identified by changes in the letter and number. Changes in the number (for example, A3) indicate minor design changes, whilst changes to both the letter and number are made following more extensive changes (for example, B2). Stepping allows consumers and servicers to identify a microprocessor's version.
