Just ran back from the Richmond retail store !! :D
I also bought the AS5 thermal paste that's on sale this week too!
Thanks to the staffs who has taken my suggestion for this promo.

I've got the most recent production/packaging date - 04/ 12/ 07
FPO/BATCH # : L652B289

L652B289 - B2 stepping??! if so this will be an awsome overclocker..

L652 is the "Week"

Please refer to this site for C2D batch# and specs:
http://www.hardforum.com/showthread.php?t=1138241

As others have mentioned, it's like a lucky draw for getting the best overclocker and this is certainly the MOST EXPENSIVE LUCKY DRAW I've ever purchased. Hopefully I could bring this baby all the up and above 3.6Ghz AT LEAST with my superior air cooled rig - Antec 900 + Zalman 9700NT + Noctua&Thermalright copper heatsinks for NB/SB.

Additional notes:
I've just did quick search online and found out that this is the newest batch L652(week) for C2D 6600s and 6420/6320 newer processors. This batch, week L652, members on [H]ardforums said it's a better overclocker than the L642/644/645 that shipped from other retailers so it really depends where our retailer, NCIX, got the batch from the supplier.

So, WISH ME LUCK GUYS!!!
As I'm eagerly wants to overclock it to the max but as per AS5 thermal pastes official user document suggested, wait for 200hours for the thermal compound to reach its max potential with intervals of rest in between. This is what you guys should do before you start overclock the C2D beast start from day 1.

I use CPU-Z program to check mine, v1.39
It read B2 revision for the newest batch (week L652)
I think B2 revision is the same thing as B2 stepping?
People usually refer to this and the week L6xx batch # to make an overclocking potential on the particular C2D.

I received my E6600 yesterday and my batch is L646G509.
CPUZ says that my CPU revision is B2 and stepping is 6.
I am running it on a Gigabyte DS3 rev. 3.3 and I am not getting good results.
The best I can do is 3.3GHZ.
I have a 6400 that can do 3.6!

Just received 5 minutes ago:

L646G509

It's made in Malaysia. Apparently these ones don't overclock as well and need a lot of voltage.

I'm not planning on overclocking, so it's fine for me. But it looks like in order to meet the demand in anticipation of the the price drops, additional production was put onstream in Malaysia.

I confirm that my L646G509 is a "poor" overclocker.
It needs 1.54375v to boot at 3.4GHZ and ORTHOS runs error free for 10 seconds!
I am testing it at 3.31GHZ (9*368) using 1.51875v and ORTHOS has been running for 6 hours.
I am using OCZ Plat. Rev2 DDR2-800 on DS3 with Zalman 9500 at full speed.

Take my advice, go with the E6420!

NEW UPDATES:
http://i41.photobucket.com/albums/e288/iamtiramisu/Capture4.jpg?t=1177794512

Like some many others have reported in the new batch, I could only do 3.2Ghz stable, that's right, NOT EVEN ONE MHZ higher!! The voltage reading is not at 1.28v but it's actually at 1.5v at 100% Orthos Blend full load and it's 1.56v in BIOS !!! Tried with 1.55v flat in BIOS and I got BSOD 22mins after...$&#$*

Could someone please explain the "PHENOMENON" for my E6600 chip to run only at ~45degrees even at an insanely ~1.55?!?? Also it's Idling at exact 23 degrees on both cores as of now at ~1.55v???! what the heck...as all others get at least 30+ idling and 50+ degrees FULL LOAD testing with MUCH LESSER VOLTAGE but again they've a much better OCing chip but not as Temp friendly as the "lemon" E6600 I've in hand?? Would I be right to make an assumption that an excellent C2D chip should have the NORMAL temp by the norm standardard. Since in my case, I'd have to bump insanely HIGH voltage to get terribily OC result but get insanely "GOOD" temp??...

I even tried lowering down the multiplier down to *7 and *6 being the lowest and the DS3 Rev3.3 could only reach ~440FSB with this particular E6600 chip.

Not matter what the math calculation you tried with this chip, it will not POST AT ABOVE 3.2Ghz as the absolutely the max threadshold for this chip.

At first I thought, right, it got to the the well known "FSB HOLE" that becomes the "FSB WALL"...I'd LOVE to get IT instead if this is the case, but NO!! tried it with a lowered multiplier down to 7 or 6 and posted right up.

On [H]ardforum, there's a thread of people reporting the newest batch, which is the L652B2 suppose to be a better overclocker than the older batch starting with L642/644/645 but now I honest think this is not a reliable source speaking from my own bloody experience. This batch # (week) is the same as the new 6420/6320 that has just released...but don't take me as I meant they're going to suck as this chip becouse at the end...

[B]IT'S ONLY A MATTER OF WHAT YOU'LL GET FOR YOUR LUCKY DRAW[/B]

An E6600 OC'ed at 3.2Ghz to me is = GARBAGE really. For a well renowed 65nm Core 2 architecture that can only do 33.3% OC is VERY BAD as I consider myself in the enthusiast level.

Just before I replaced the P4 Prescott(hot) 640 2mb OC'ed to 4.28Ghz with this, that old 90nm chip back in 2005 could do 33.75% OC from stock and at the CPU score was RANKED #1 on FUTUREMARK's ORB database at 1280 2006 edition and 8100 for the 2006 edition (for a single core P4)

I seriously couldn't take the hit that the E6600 is doing THIS BAD...sigh...
sorry for the long rant guys. Until you've got yourself a very unlucky and unpleasant lucky draw, you'd feel me totally.

It's literally $300CDN down the drain....literally by my standard as I cannot be conservatory for a 65nm Core 2 architecture E6600 especially.

Complaing a product is working 33% faster then it specifies?

I wish my CBR 600 got only 200cc more displacement as a problem !!

As an enthusist you know that it's hit or miss, my mobile Barton clocked to 2.6G, and my S754 A64 doesn't do much of anything really. Thats the way it goes sometimes. Sometimes you win, sometimes you lose, it's an expensive risky game we high end computer users play.

Can't win them all.

A 3.2G C2D bad? I am sure there are many people who would love to have that piece of junk right now ;)

PS I just got the same stepping, when the vid/ps/case arrive and I get some time off work I will see what mine ends up doing. :)

Just an update:

I returned the 652B E6600 today and bought 2* E6600 and 1*E6700. I havn't break the seal on any of them yet. It's funny that one of the E6600 I've in hand happeneds to be a 646G510 exactly the same as you've there.

Sorry to hear your loss.
Thanks a lot for sharing with us so I know this one I can cross out from the group.

On the other overclocking forums I've read, one 645G and 649G have being reported to be a fairly decent overclocker. They havn't reach to their max potential yet but are stable with a relatively low voltage at ~3.2G

Another member from Anandtech who got exactly the same batch as I did, L652B, and he also did not have success with OC beyond 3.2G+ no matter what combinations he tried.

Everyone knows the 65nm Core 2 took overclocking to another level. Almost every review we read anywhere online have an average OC increase of 50% or more. The overclock-ability on the new Core 2 architecture is what attracts some of the buyers to move from an older P4 or AMD platform and I'm no exception. It's clear that with most recent batches after L644 week, higher rate of dissapointments from OC enthusiasts have being reported on various forums. Xtremesystem, Hard OCP, Overclocking, extremeoverclocker, etc. more members have reported their poor OC experience with some of the later batches. It's really hard to simply categorized the good from the bad batches becouse there are just so many of them and each case may vary. At least, we can rely on the statistics shown on various OC forums database to get a sense of the overclockability fo certain batches.

Please read my other thread I've created under CPU discussion for the lists.

GOOD LUCK TO ALL!

Finally someone else that actually have the latest batches.

The one tiramisu had was from 2006 december so not exactly latest,packaging date and actuall date of the batch is not the same no offence.

Mine is even more new then yours its L711A146 and i have no clue how it will perform.
I mean L7 =year 2007, 11= week, A146 code and stepping.

Made in malaysia .
Since you have one from 2007 aswell if you OC please post how it went , I'm kinda curious

Well so far so good, I'm doing 3.2 right now on stock voltage and no problems running two concurrent super pi calculations. At this rate I don't think 3.6 will be too hard to hit.

i have the same CPU as you BJ, and im at 3.6ghz at 1.52 volts with air cooling running at about 50 to 52C, if i had water cooling im sure i could do better that person that did 3.6ghz with 1.48 had a kick*****water cooling system, but the L709 is a very good week, im just happy i got lucky :). any way u should be able to hit about 3.3 or 3.4 on stock voltages, you may need to bump up your northbridge core before you even need to bump up your CPU core depending on what board your using LOL

Sweet yeah I'm at 3.3GHz right now still at stock voltage. I ran it through super pi, memtest, 3DMark 2001, and it's been priming Large FFT's for over 7 hours and counting with no issues. The temps accourding to Intel Thermal Analysis tool are around 48C on one core and 43C on the other. I'm using the EVGA 680i (A1) board right now along with OCZ2P800R22GK memory.

Lol it's actually not too bad. I slept all last night with it on about 2m away from my head. I don't even have an exhaust fan on the back of my case because the Panaflo shoots the air right through the heatsink and out the rear vents. I do have two Scythe S-Flex intake fans at the front of the case though.

Now the old Vantec Tornado I have, that one sounds like a jet (and probably generates a fair bit of thrust too lol).

Hey doger_666 what sort of heatsink/fan are you using on your chip? I got to 3.6GHz but the voltage required causes my temps to hit about 61C according to the Intel Thermal analysis tool, which I understand is too hot for these chips. I had set 1.55v in the BIOS but the actual voltage applied to the chip is closer to 1.5v.

My guess is that I'm not getting good contact between the CPU and my Ultra 120. I've already lapped the Ultra 120 but I'm thinking I should lap the CPU IHS as well. I tried remounting everything but it had no effect on temps. Any tips/ideas?

Currently using: L646G510
Motherboard: EVGA 680i (A1 version)

I was looking for some information on this batch before I opened it up and after seeing nothing but one or two posts on scattered forums saying that they were poor overclockers, I just shrugged my shoulders and broke it out anyway. I've either gotten really lucky or perhaps the others that were having issues have other hardware limitations they're not taking into consideration.

Current overclock:
E6600 e 3.2Ghz (1.3438 vcore)
Stock Intel OEM fan
Idles at 33-34 celcius. I've reached 57 celcius at 8 hours and counting of small FFT Orthos load according to TaT. CoreTemp has it a little higher at 59. So, I'm sorry to add conflicting information to the bin here but I've been pleased with the chip so far. I'll push it farther when I get my aftermarket HSF in and a new case (opening the side of my current case gives me a 3 degree temperature drop under load) and let you guys know where I max out.
