Default Intel Core 2 Q6600 G0 Stepping: Cheap Quad Core Just Got Better

For $266 you now have a tough decision to make: do you buy two 3.0GHz cores or four 2.40GHz cores? In our last review we found that if you're doing any amount of 3D rendering or media encoding, the Core 2 Quad Q6600 at $266 ends up being the better value. Of course, if you want the best of both worlds you could always overclock the 2.40GHz Q6600, giving you four, much faster cores.

So far for the myth of the Q6600 G0 "overclocking champ"

stepping just gives a better chance, but no guarantee, overclocking never is

I didn't hit 4Ghz with mine, but 3.6Ghz was easy needing under 1.4v. Does 3Ghz at the stock 1.200v. Or 1.18v after vdroop.

Shouldn't expect all G0's to be good OCers, the Q6600 is the bottom bin for desktop Quads after all...
