With four cores and high scores, the Intel® Core2 Professional processor Q6600 is flat out the most extreme desktop processor. Its specifically built for hardcore enthusiasts who dont take kindly to compromise. Based on the Core Microarchitecture, the Intel® Core2 Professional Q6600 is a multitasking monster, and the ultimate multimedia engine. The performance? It eats benchmarks for breakfast. This energy efficient version consumes 10W less power than the traditional Q6600 which means it produces less heat and is better suited for overclocking purposes.

* Quad Core Technology * SLACR Stepping, 95W * Energy Efficient Edition (Consumes 10W less power, less heat, better overclocking) * 2.40GHz clock speed * 8MB L2 Cache * Intel Speedstep Technology * EM64T 64-Bit Technology * Execute Disable Bit * Cooler running technology, less heat and less noise! * Supplied with Intel referance heatsink & fan

Free delivery if you select supersaver delivery option. If you take up the free delivery its the cheapest available G0 I've found.

First post so be gentle. I know some dont like ebuyer but I've not had any problems with them and surely a boxed retail CPU can't be too hard to sell correctly.

Planning on building a new system soon, was gonna stick the other Q6600 in it but this is probably worth the extra tenner due to less power consumption/heat generation

Didnt find the G0 stepping version or any other Q6600 when I searched before posting:)

Your right they have put it up £4 during the day!

Sneaky so-and-so's. Always the way when you post an ebuyer deal. Still looks about the cheapest price for the G0's but I'd expect the price to drop to under £170 in the next few weeks as more appear on the market.

Decent price but it is worth stating that the Komplett CPU is not the G0 stepping (rather the older B3) and as such by the time you add in shipping it comes in about the same as Scan/eBuyer et. all.

I have my eye on a G0 Q6600 for my Shuttle but I plan to wait a few weeks till I can pick it up for £165 inc. del. £175-180 seems to be the float price for G0's at the moment.

Ebuyer are fantastic, never had a problem.
Hot deal.
#11
Yep hot, im going cheap and getting the non energy efficient one thou!
#12
Sorry a nob question but whats so good about the G0 stepping? Thanks.

also i hear that the QUAD is not worth it as its hardly used in daily purposes.
Duo core more usefull if much cheaper.

The G0 syepping has a TDP of 95w whereas the previous stepping B3 had 105w. This means that it will run cooler and therefore should be more overclockable.

The Quad makes mincemeat of the dual core in video encoding. If you intend never to convert from one video format to another and only play games then the native quicker clock speed of the dual gives them the advantage.

Although not many programmes/games support dual core at the moment never mind quad core, BUT these quad cores are brilliant for multitasking where each programme you have runnning takes up 100% CPU usage on each core, meaning tasks get done a lot faster as that particular core is being assigned to that task alone. So basically you can have 2 or 3 programmes running away in the background all the time and then play a game without any slowdown. Just bear in mind you do need a decent amount of memory for this to work - I would say 2 gig is a minimum.

I'd say 2Gb DDR is a minimum anyway these days! It's a sad state of affairs!

Hot deal.


They are good when you ruturn faulty items too, for a replacement. :thumbsup:
#18
Quad core might not be as useful as dual core now, but the prices have just dropped and the Q6600 looks good for the price, and soon when games start to utilize more cores you'll be laughing. As crofter said as well for multitasking theyll **** on anything else, ordering a new system tomorrow with one :)

I started this morning having a look at this offer again, and seem to have somehow ended up staring at a cart load of stuff. Still busy debating with myself on wether i need it or not. Could all the kind people here help me decide? I have a now 5 year old pc, been slowly updating it piece by piece, but i need to take the plunge soonish and future proof the motherboard and processor, as i am noticing a huge decline in speed ( all these programs now days take up so much! ) I need some help in choosing all the pieces i would be buying. Could someone have a look on ebuyer and let me know if these would all work together
131566, 131950, 129125, 105994. Basically wanting a kick ass computer, and since there is no one here ( in rl ) computer literate, thought i would bounce it off the knowledgeable bargain hunters. Many thanks

Reaver, you don't need the fan. The CPU is boxed and comes with a decent fan. Unless you're doing some mad overclocking, then I suggest you go with something else altogether fan wise.

I highly recommend getting 2gb Ram not 1gb. Motherboard is fine and processor is sweet.
#21
Reaver - yep they will work well and be a good system. Make sure you get 2 sticks of memory though (works in dual-channel pairs so get two identical sticks). You'll want a decent case/psu for it (have a look at the Antec ones from ebuyer). You don't really need the after market cooler (CPU comes with an intel cooler) but it will probably allow you to overclock the CPU (although if your current PC is 5 years old this will seem lightning fast anyway!). What do you plan to do for your graphics card?

NB If you are after a monitor they have a decent Hyundai for £150 (see this thread).
#22
Ok, i have taken off the fan, and can just about afford 4 of those sticks of ram. I recently bought a fairly nice 19" cibox widescreen flatscreen monitor, and have a pretty nice case ( forgotten the make, but is pretty damn big, with tons of expansion slots and tons of extra places to put fans, with an inbuilt temp monitor. Only got the two going just now ) As for graphics cards, they will probably have to wait till next month :-( I have a couple mid range ( about £50 ) cards lying around just now, will just have to make do with them till i can really splurge :-D. How about 120375 for a PSU, would that be sufficient, or would you recommend a higher model? Let me know what which model you think would kick ass for around £50 ( may reduce the memory back down to 2 sticks ). Many thanks on all this help :D
#23
380W should be sufficient with anything but a high-end graphics card, but if you are planning on getting a high end card (Radeon x9xx, Geforce x8xx etc) look to get a 450W - 500W model just to be sure (whilst you will likely draw less than 350W even with a high end card, its better to run a PSU at two-thirds its rated output than almost maxed out...). If you are using XP or Vista 32-bit stick with just 2GB of ram, if its Vista 64-bit 4GB is nice (although you could just get two for now and see how you get on...)
#24
So this would be a better PSU just now 120377. Any other recommendations? To me this system is seeming pretty future proof ( well, the back bone of it is anyway, can always upgrade the graphics cards and such later ). Also if you can think of any changes i should make to the motherboard? i can go to about £100 for one. Again, thanks for all this help
suspended#25
Mate PCIe 2.0 comes out with intel's new X38 chipset. I would wait for this as it will be out by the end of the month. I would get a ACF7Pro to overclcock with and some spare theremal paste if you have none already, as it is easy to mess up the installation.

I reccomend http://www.buildyourown.org.uk , put a spec in the proposed section under general discussion and we will help you, as here are some remarkable deals atm if you search hard enough ;)
