Any way to determine the G0 steping of Q6600 from package?

Hi,
I just want to buy a Q6600,but I wonder if there is a safe way to know if it is a G0 steping or B3, just from package.
As I have heared the G0 is the better overclocker. Please help.

  1. I heard that if you stroke it in a certain way you can feel it in your heart. :o


    JK, I doubt it but have no real idea.
  2. Look for "SLACR" at the end of the product code (Under the first Barcode):

    Thanks a lot.
    A real complete and nice answer. :)
  4. I'd feel more confident looking directly to the CPU through the small plastic window in the box and looking for SLACR.

    I don't trust those retailers at all.

    I understand your distrust but the sticker is put on by Intel themselves and unless the retailers are really good at repackaging the CPUs I doubt it would be a B3 with a G0 Code on it.
