I'm putting together a build for a friend using this Q6600.
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
Any things I should know? Specifically, are there any 1333 fsb quad cores?
Also, I've never done and Intel build, what type of ram should I use? If the motherboard standard is DDR2 800 can it use anything else? Does the ram speed want to be synchronized with the fsb speed?
Also, what's the latest and greatest from intel, as far as motherboards are concerned, is it the P35?

More about : intel q6600

don use a 1333 use a 1066 q6600 - 1333 would be a 50 or 6650

what to know???

here is the key use 3 hard drives!

get a good case with 3 12cm fans or more

use 2 drives in raid0 and the 3rd drive for the main application like games. 2gb is fine with 32bit vist do not even think about 64

the p35 chipset is the way to go make sure you get the "r" southbridge

bear in mind most all the p35 is really a single video card mobo - accept the futrure asus mobo with funky bridge card to accerate the second pci-x slot

with the 2gb of ram i suggest muskin 4-4-3-10 you can run it upto 1000fsb if needed since p35 mobo's have limited ratio's

my g0 q6600 systems run 3.61ghz with fsb 1000mhz memory 45c and 48c idel


multi hdd then you will see the light! ah the dragon has spoken!

check out the livathon with a 3.6ghz q6600








the rest is top secret! note the 150gb raptor in the bay top - that doubles your fps with the flight sim!

ROFLMAO @ this guy

3 hdd's in a case - along as there far enough apart they will be fine, if not then a single 8cm fan of any kind will cool them sufficiently - all they need is a gentle breeze to keep cool, most hdds dont even get cooling in most cases but generally they will last longer runing below 45ºc.

Ram - if your not overclocking, then get the market standard - PC5300/DDR2-667 as it actually runs faster then the current FSB requirements (and faster then sync etc), and no, that DDR2-800 support means if can run ram at 800mhz but will also run with mainstream/slower ram.

FSB1333 - on the pentium 4's and pentium d's they really hammered the fsb where as the more proven P6 design is more efficent and doesnt require the high fsb to get decent performance - the difference between FSB1066 and FSB1333 is like ~5% tops at best, but with most decent motherboards you can lower the multiplier and raise the FSB to 1333 to make it that speed aswell as a mild overclock if you wish.

As for motherboards, dont touch cheapies like MSI, EliteGroup etc, go for Gigabyte or ASUS, and as for Chipsets - The P35 is the current King but in reality the 965 chipset is about the same so dont be afraid to get a motherboard featuring any of the two chipsets.

dragonsprayer - how old are you?

wow what a noob u are = lol! 45!

3 hard drives means 2 drives in raid0 and third drive for your applications far faster then 1! the limiting factor with a quadcore is the hard drives.

whats the bandwidth of the 667? the 4-4-3-10 runs 7000-7200 around 6000? you can syn at 1:1 -wow are u dumb!

hotter hard drives are the longer they last per googles long term study!
