      I believe oem cpus are out now but you will pay a premium for them, apparently the retail chips should be about next month, don't quote me on that though.

        If you look around there's quite a lot of stock. Unfortunately they're all OEM and way above RRP.

          ok i guess it keep a eye on it then, the only 3 thing's i need is the psu, gpu and cpu

          i hate sitting around waiting, it could be a possibility to get a Q9300, few difference between the Q6600 is 2mb cach, 0.1ghz, fsb speed and 45nm

          if i get money before this thing comes out then i'll get a Q9300

            6600s should overclock more due to being more able to handle higher voltages in my opinion.

              the q6600 also has the advantage of 1066 fsb

                  7 multi cipples clocking a 9300, you need aboard that can do monster fsb.

                    Q6600 ftw, overclock better alot cheaper and only marginally lower performance clock for clock. The Q6600 is a whole lot better value for money, imho.

                      Q9450 (or Xeon X3350) FTW - get an ASUS P5E-VM and run the FSB at 500MHz - get a CPU with more cache, more optimised instructions and running over 4GHz on Air cooling...

                      All i have to do is fine one

                        Problem is not many, that i know of, run anything like 4ghz and those that do require dangerous volts, anything over 1.45v on a 45nm chip is apparently asking for trouble.

                          i guess no one asks if you overclock i guess its taken for granted

                          IF i overclock it will be a SLIGHT overclock like taking the Q9450 to 2.8 from 2.66 or the Q9300 from 2.5 to 2.7

                          this it my first system i have had my say on everything that goes in to it, my first system was pre-built and second a pc shop built it up it up for me so this is just i dont want to kill one part to much

                          i know overclocking doesn't kill it but me with my knowledge of the bios system would most likely do something wrong and kill it

                            Just bare in mind that regardless of how much you overclock your CPU, by 200MHz or 1000MHz you still can't get away with little or no overclocking knowledge. It's a very all or nothing situation.

                              If you have a half decent modern board overclocking will be painless.

                              My board it can be either done in the bios or the easier way (IMHO) by a jumper on the board itself.

                              IE all I did was change the Front Side Bus jumper from the system default (200, albeit the processor over rides this to it's minimum of 266) to 333. taking my q6600 from 2.4Ghz to 3.0Ghz.

                              BUT...

                              The harder part and more time consuming part is to make sure the system is stable, in my case 12 hours of Prime 95 and 4 hours of memtest.

                              Then if required adjusting the voltage in small incements to get the system stable (I was lucky I didn't need to change the voltage at all)
