I got a new E6600 for myself.It had some weird stepping, thought of taking it for a ride.Below is the outcome ! :D

XFX 650i
Crucial Ballistix PC8000
Hitachi 250Gb

Some Pics,

As you will see MCW30 does help a lot!!

Ok now time for some numbers.
Well BW action here!!

Pi 8M @ 3.91GHz

Pi 32M @ 3.70GHz

4GHz and Pi1M,

4GHz and Pi4M,

We did try some tweaks known to us, but we didnt really get there. To add to it we were limited as there was no net :(

Tweaking more for best time @ 4GHz!!

Ok now its time for some "Validated Numbers".


Overall I would say I was surprised by the chip. I expected 3.8GHz with water but it did prove me wrong and I am happy for it. Chip clocked well and @ 10.2K it is totally worth to have it. I wanted to do some 3DM06 runs @ say 3.7-3.8GHz, but became lazy :D
