I was wanting to know if anyone knows where you can get the G0 Revision of the Q6600. I was browsing on Newegg and Zipzoomfly and neither specifically say G0 revision I saw the box number on Newegg which according to http://processorfinder.intel.com/details.aspx?sSpec=SLA... is the G0 revision but I am wanting to make 100% sure....THANKS

At this point I would assume that most of the Q6600's are GO and since the box number matches with the intel site they will most likely be pulled out of that batch. I have a friend who just ordered that exact one about 2 weeks ago and he says that it is a GO...he may have gotten lucky, but I think you have a good chance of getting it. I think taking the chance is worth it to save to cash that other sites charge you to promise it. If it isnt...then just send it back. That is what I would do. Hope this helps.

Best,

I'd be willing to bet that the B3s are almost entirely gone. My friend just picked up a Q6600 at Fry's for Black Friday and it was a G0. If Fry's still had B3s that would have been a good way to unload them. Any retailer with reasonable volume should have cleared out all of their old stock by now.

Well see Mrmez if there were any around me other then Bestbuy and Circuit City I would. But neither carry the CPU. I am stuck ordering most of my computer hardware online. Thanks.

Thanks everyone else I thought so I just wanted to ask and try to make 100% sure.

I know the Microcenter here has them.

I know the guy that works there and he let me and a friend go through all of their Q6600 G0s looking for a certain batch #. We didn't find any, so we didn't buy one, but he still let us look.

I'm also web dependent for computer parts. I just chatted with a newegg person.
As long as the CPU package is unopened they will accept a return without the 15% restock fee.
How can I tell if I've gotten a GO step unit from the package?

Just buy the Q6600 G0 from Clubit and don't deal with any vendor that won't guarantee a G0.

The product number ends with SLACR from a G0 and SL9UM on a B3.

As was stated above, just buy it from a vendor that will guarentee a G0.

Thanks guys for all the help I am going to just get it through ClubIT and save myself the trouble.

just an fyi about clubit If your like me u kinda get ancy you may want to opt for a faster shipping, they said 3-7 days but its taking them all 7 days plus 2days Processing..i ordered all my parts last sunday, got everything minus my motheboard and cpu from clubIT) Should be in tomorrow...its teasing me... :(

Thanks guys for all the input. And yea FatFunkey I am the same exact way I HATE waiting for stuff. I don't mind 2-3 days but when it starts reaching 4-9 I can't stand it rofl.... On side note here off thread topic. Is there an optimal way to apply thermal compound such as with the Core 2 Duo they recommend putting a thin line down the CPU in a particular direction. Is there a similar thing for the quad core? such as two lines or anything?? Thanks guys and again sorry for going off subject just didn't see the point of making a whole new thread.

I package and process thousands of these things four days a week with FPOs of 10,000 a pop. The chances of you getting a G0 stepping in the Q6600 is about 98% at this point in time. EVERY single one of the Q6600's that come out of our OPD factory have the SLACR S-Spec; which is the G0 revision. Trust me, you're almost guaranteed to get the G0 rev. :sol:

Thanks for the information!

I did buy it form newegg simply because of the $50 paypal rebate they offered over the thanksgiving weekend. I just received it & it is a GO. <grin> I am happy.
Obviously my story ended happily but I was prepared to deal with the return hassle for the potential $50 savings.

eta; and the q6600 is *nice*
At first the q6600 was at 70-90% usage but I was able to adjust the ram voltage to +0.1v for my 1.9v memory. Everything is screaming now<grin>

I can't guarantee it, but I just ordered a Q6600 a week and a half ago and it was G0. Good luck!

I currently have a gaming rig sitting empty waiting for a CPU. You guys think I should hold out for Penryn or spring for the 6600 now?

Just so you know, it's a P35 board, and I haven't got the GPU yet either...

(Edit: should I hold out for the BUDGET Penryn? I realize the high-end is out already, but I don't intend to get the 9650)

If you can wait and spend a little extra it'll be worth it. I wouldn't get the 9300 over the Q6600 (multipliers). However I would get the 9450 over the Q6600. It'll also be about $100 more than the Q6600 though.
