The only 'problem' (if you could call it that) is the pricing - I'm not understanding the Q6600 at £160. Reason is, scan has it priced at £234.95 exc VAT today. Are you saying that comes July 22, I'll find that the price has been slashed by 75 quids? Sounds like a lot.

It also depends on motherboards etc: for example if you buy an Abit IP35 Pro or DFI ICFX3200T2R/G you get GTLReference voltage adjustments which specifically helps with quad core overclocking.
With an IP35 Pro you should easily get it to 333-400FSB. Abit has got quad cores to 500 in its labs.

Yeah the slowest 1333mhz bus chip (quad or duo) will be the one I upgrade to/overlock with. I want the Core 2 Duo E6540 _without_ TXT.

supreme commander already does.
