I have just built a new computer using a Quad Core CPU. The MBD is Intel D975XBX2KR, Intel Core 2 Quad Q6600 Kentsfield 2.4GHz 2 x 4MB L2 Cache LGA 775 Processor, Crucial Ballistix 2GB (2 x 1GB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 800 (PC2 6400) Dual Channel Kit Desktop Memory. Sata Hard drive, and 550power supply. I had a Core 2 dual before this and it was snappy, I am not very happy with this one. Just looking for a few answers.

Thanks.

My CPU is the B3 stepping, and the temp I am not sure. Is there some software that I can load in order to see that?

I have the latest Bios update, Have EIST enabled in Bios. I set the power scheme to Minimal, and pressed ctrl-alt-del, and pressed performance tab. It never stays at 0, it goes between 0 and 1. When it's at 0, I goto My Computer properties and the two cpu speeds are always the same. I also ram memtest / ram passed. I ran tests on cpu, hard drive, psu and all hardware it all passed. I am running Windows XP Media Center edition with SP2.

Is the B2 speed stepping a little more fussy than they GO?
The computer seems to be running a little better, but my Core 2 duo ram much faster and there where no hesitation as there are with this one.... Once and awhile the CPU will not respond right away.
