Oh. Why did you switch then? The 6600 was a good CPU.

The Q6600 went out for whatever reason and the Q9550 was on sale. I bought it because I was aware of the upgrades I was doing later on.

Oh. I see.
I already have my AM3 mobo and I don't even have a CPU for it yet. It just sits there in the box until my next paycheck.

How much do you have to underclock?

I wasn't so lucky. The CPU died and had to be returned so I could buy the replacement.

7-8 Months. Then again, I was pushing it very hard. in the 4GHz region. The G0 stepping just doesn't go /that/ far.

I didn't have it replaced through Intel. TigerDirect took it back.

EDIT: I wouldn't call this one a "thread jack". He's the OP...
