I'm seeing the same things dude. Everyone that's going to be a c2d....GOOOOOOO, before newegg releases their mistake. (doesn't really matter though does it?)
EDIT: Actually....it only looks like the q6600 has dropped...interesting.
I think it's 2 days two soon?
That's what I thought to. As I just said in my edit, newegg only cut the q6600 not anything else...
I wonder if it will drop more In price or if I should buy it now?
Here is another one http://www.ncix.com/products/index.php?sku=22211&vpn=BX80562Q6600&manufacture=Intel&promoid=1042
Reasons are because the egg wants to get rid of them cause they HAVE TO sell them for less in a few days. They are clever.
Don't jump on it yet. I bought my 6000+ a couple days before the AMD price cuts, because I saw it went down to $195, and I wasn't aware of the price cut announcement. The day of the official price cut, it went down another $25.
you should try nicx.com for this one I live in Canada and they have a good deal on it $290 Canadian, so about 280usd... this is ontheir weekly sales list after the week is over (just startedd tonight) than it wil go to its default/new standard price I believe.
Happy shopping, this week nicx has some killer deal for Canada and prob in thier USA site aswell.
According to the guys at EVGA that is the price cutt the price off 266.00 is by the thousands to the retailer , but I'm gonna wait and see. They seem to think retail will be around 299.00. they told me this threre days ago when I asked about my motherboard supporting a quad core overclocking. My board like many others does support it but will only oc it to 3.0. and even the board designed to overclock the q6600 will hit around 3.3ghz. I'm on the fence I might get a e6850 or even a e6750 instead.
Then how does HeavyH2O manage 4Ghz on his quad? What board and cpu does he have?
Only some boards can manage to get a q6600 over 3.3ghz the average is around 3.0ghz. Unless you have a board that is designed to overclock a quad core most support a quad core but are only designed to overclock a dual core to higher frontside bus speeds. The q6700 will hit 3.7ghz in my board but thats beacuse it has a higher mulitplier and doesn't need a 400+ fsb. My board a TR 680 is optimized to oc the dual core and support a quad core. The boards that support high fronside buses on dual core chips might not support high frontside buses on quad cores. The boards that do support extreme quad core speeds and FSB are slightly phisically different. The version that would go way over 400 fsb from Evga is the A1 680 version of my board, and since my board was the original 680 nivida design, as are many Asus, DFI etc... they are going to have mixed results with a quad. The two boards, I used as an example, to the naked eye look exactly the same. Evga realized this problem and re issued A1 boards then released the orginal A1/ AR board as optimized for overclocking a dual core calling them a TR , but many companies didn't they simply write in the tech specs that the board supports a quad core but don't tell you it doesn't overclock aswell as a dual core chip would in the same board. People are going to be pissed when they find this out.
Older chipsets have problems OCing quads but Bearlake P35 is a whole another world.
No more FSB walls...
Correct as are the newer 680 board or should I say the redesigned 680 boards. The trouble is most companies are not being honest on this topic.
Over here, the price dropped to £127.99. Meaning we get it slightly cheaper.
Here is a e6750 209.00, e6550 189.00, e4550 152.99, e6850 299.00. I think these price will go down even more come monday. The great thing is my e6600 sold for more than this e6750 is at already.
The price war starts
heres a q6600 for $273
This is going to be great thats a 20.00 price drop from neweggs price already. WOW!!!!!
I'm going to get a e6850 they wil hit 4.3ghz on air or a e6750 which will do 4.0ghz at 1.5v I need 1.67 v to do 4.0ghz that with my old e6600.
interesting trt and theses proccys are so damm cheap. Nicx is having a sale in thier Canada devision this week with alot of the new intel chips.. but the q6700 is still high priced $575 Canadian.
Yes certain boards can only overclock a quad core to a certain fsb. However, even if you have a board that's not limited in that respect, you have to remember quad core's throw off alot of heat. If you have a properly build board heat's going to be your main enemy (air cooling), not the board.
whats the heat dissipation ona q6600?
105 TDP....still alot higher than something like a e6600, but not as high as a qx6700
so what would bea good buget cooler to use on it? freezer 7?
woah thats cheap. i thought they were 400
god damn im sooooo freaking tempting buying the Q6600 from mwave right now.
I have all the parts ready my Case my foxxconn 680I mobo, my zalman heatsink, my 4gb of OCZ SLI ready memory , and my Creative X FI Fatality Platinium champion, 8800 GTS video card and my OCZ 700 watt Power supply. I'm only missing a god damn CPU. having these parts sitting in my room in the box is KILLING ME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
but since i waited 1 month already ill wait for the couple day to get the pr ice drop completely save my self 20 bucks
