    Ned, there are q6600 with b3 steppings in the channels? How do you know which one has G0?
    You can check the codes on the box:

    SL9UM = 105Watt B3 tepping
    SLACR = 95Watt G0 stepping

    So far in the UK we still have all old B3 stock. No one has reported receiving a newer G0 stepping from a retail purchase. Some suppliers are offering G0 steppings at inflated prices but to date these are still showing as pre-orders as no stock appears available yet. I guess it's just a question of shifting the old stock first before Intel start pushing the newer steppings into the supply chain.

    You look for SLACR (not a SL9UM)

    Happy hunting.........

    People want the G0 steppings because they think they'll overclock better. ATM with both steppings in the supply chain, some people will pay a small premium to guarantee getting the G0 stepping - it only takes two minutes for the retailers to sort the boxes into two piles - B3 and G0 steppings.

    Re: The Pond Quad Core Thread

    I think I may have found a case for my new Quad core behemoth:



    I found a place selling a Sun 450 Server chassis and it looks ideal for a cool custom modding project

    I've always liked some of the custom SGI case mods I've seen, but can't find any cheap SGI machines or cases to use, but one of these SUN Server cases has come up. These things would also be great for large water cooling set ups (although I'm not planning water) as they basically roll in under a desk. You could probably even build two systems into one of those cases - two 2-way quad core Xeons for a 16-way system anyone

    So, what do you reckon is a reasonable price? They're asking 85 plus 50 shipping. I'm thinking of offering 50 plus shipping maybe.

    Re: The Pond Quad Core Thread

    Ned, looks like you could put several quads in there, Adam, and still have some room!

    you could mount a wall unit AC on one side!

    heck, its already got wheelS, throw in a steering wheel, and enter the soapbox derby! LOL

    seriously, that looks huge!

    Re: The Pond Quad Core Thread

    Yeah Ned, What T said, It looks humongous, Any bigger and It would be a good temporary substitute for a chair, I'd say grab It If You can, As to two PCs in It, Water cooling w/a TEC wouldn't be a bad idea, especially if overclocking. In any case Ned go for It! You'll have a bit of the SUN in Your office even on a cloudy day.

    I really have no idea what SUN gear fetches so I have no idea if it's reasonable or not. I know a large custom PC case with wow factor is gonna cost upwards of 100 so from that aspect, I suppose it's not bad although I'd have to figure in what I may spend converting it to take PC components. Anyway, two weeks left on ebay for me to make up my mind

    All my systems are naked atm, sat on open racks under the desk. Here's an old photo of the first rack I built:

    I thought about something like that, but with drawers or shelves on slides. Even tossed around the idea of just going rack mount, but those racks get pricey!!!
