im sure it is but for a starters package. its not bad. plus if you dont want to OC and still run multi Game cards i think its not to bad.

Explain B3 and why its bad plz? I saw this ad and was interested but wanted to check here first.

Q6600 B3 revisions don't overclock as well as the G0. G0 generates less heat and uses less power.

Its actually not a bad price, regardless if its a B3 stepping. Show me a better price for 3 components (CPU/MB/4GB Ram), when you want to build a budget machine? You'd prolly loose money on that if you were selling a bare bone yourself, I think. :whistle:

B3 stepping is an older make, or in other words when the first came out. GO stepping is newer. Only real difference is that the G0 will run a lil cooler. But between the 2 in performance or OC, is about the same. Just the B3 may run hotter, but not to the point of thermal shutdown.

True, but I think the B3 gets a bad rap...check my sig.

I have a friend that got one @ the same time as I believe his is OCed to 3.2 with a high FSB

I have a 680i board and he has an Asus X38

Heh... its actually not a bad buy at all:

Intel Core 2 Quad Q6600 Processor HH80562PH0568M

That is linked to the one off the combo.

Now click on spec for the CPU, and try to look for the stepping. :D 

Bah.. I'll show ya:

Quote:
Architecture: 65 nm

Wattage: 105W

Core Stepping: G0

Fan: Not Included



Edit:
Errr Wait a min... it says Wattage 105W, isn't the G0 lower... 95W???

:lol: . o O (bastards!!)

Oh I wasn't saying the B3 is a poor overclocker by any means, just that it's not quite as good at it as the G0 stepping ones. I've only overclocked my G0 to 3.0ghz so I'm sure a B3 would have been fine for me.

Yes G0 is a 95w TDP part not 105w. They either have the TDP mixed up or the stepping. Knowing that I don't prefer Tiger I would say its a B3.

Is this a good deal or is the Q6600 antiquated already?
I know theres DDR3 out there and new CPUs coming out.

So..take a look at the ad....is it something I want or will it be obsolete in 4 months?

Currently using
FX-60(currently OC'd to 3% over stock)
2gigs XMS DDR-400 ram
8800GT w/ 512 megs


So if I bought the items in that ad, would it be worth it or save and dont get a 65nm die and go for the newer ones?

thanks

i think the combo deal was a great offer. you arnt spending the money for the 780i and almost getting the same fetures.

The cpu is awsome, i think we can all just leave it at that??

I have never used this ram. nor have i tryed to look for feed backs about it. so i will keep my opinion about this to myself.
