The Q67 is a better overclocker but runs hot and has a much smaller MTBF than the Q84 which runs at a lower stock voltage due to the 45nm architecture. As well as the Cadmium Transistors that can take a little more abuse. But the Q67 has 2Mb of level 2 cache per core instead of 1Mb and has large multipliers. The Q67 could probably come out on top if you overclocked both their maximums.

If you'd like a little help overclocking, hit me up on AIM or by PM here at CF. I used to overclock my Q66 pretty hardcore.

Hey. use promo code EMCLTNP29 to get $10 off if you are going to buy from newegg.
Sorry grantofhell, but I think the 8400 is a better OC'er.

Depends on the board, too. The Q67 can go a long ways on Intel's X48 chipset.

True, but it has already been replaced and is out of production. Where would he even get one?

I have always been and always will be an AMD fan, so I'm not really an intel expert.

I'm an overclocking expert on the Intel Quad-series The Q67 has a 10X multiplier and the Q84 only has an...8 I think. Same FSB on any board with a 2x difference. Just assume a new 790i with a 1600MHz capability: (1600/4)x10 versus (1600/4)x8

EDIT: Math corrected
Oh, and TD and NE sell them I believe.

TD - Q6700 OEM
NE - Q6600 Retail

huh. OK. i didn't know that. AMD has unlocked multipliers on most of their CPU's now, so that isn't a problem to me.
