How can I tell if my Q6600 is a B3 or G0?
I been reading many reviews on the Intel Quad Q6600. Most if not all of them say that there are two different types of Q6600. B3 and G0 versions. B3 I think was the first iterations possibly and the latter the latest made. I just bought a bundle from Frys Electronics. I want to make sure I have the G0 version before I open the box. Is there any possible way to tell which of the two CPU's I have by a serial number or something? Thanks in advance. Laterz.

You need to know the sSpec number. it should be on the box by the barcodes.
The G0 is SLACR. The B3 is SL9UM.
Did you get that Q-ECS 279$ bundle? If so don't worry whether it's a G0 or not. That mobo is a horrible over clocker. If it's not a SLACR, exchange it, tell the guy at the desk you want the SLACR.
Actually I did buy that bundle plus a AMD 4800 bundle for $99.00. It was a G0 version. Now I need to find a good board to put it on. In fairness tho the motherboard it came with seems to have some positive reviews. Considering that it is a ECS mobo.
