Yea thats what i heard as well,i got like 800 bucks or so saved up for the 3.0 quad version an i want to figure out exactly when it is coming out,the money is itching me to spend it lol.
Nov 12th along with the new Nvidia cards the last I saw.

Hey will the penryn's have 1333 fsb
Yep thats what i like about it,the entire quad line up is 1333 fsb
hmmok i just might wate
Well from a japanese site i seen it seems penryn won't come out until jan,the only penryn processor being released in nov is the 999 one which is the 3.0 version..
aw craap i guess ill just get q6600 i cant wate till jan because the new processor is a birthday present
yea =/ thats what sucks cause penryn comes out but a lot of people wanna build now =/.
im about to bulid a new computer and i want to wait until the penryn E5420 comes out, i will be using an EVGA 680i A1 motherboard. will the stock BIOS work long enough to install windows and flash the BIOS
Not to sure about evga but if you have a asus board they already have info on the boards that will work on penryn etc.
better wait believe me it worth it. Penryn kicks a**.
^^ sure right,less wattage,larger l2 cache,and i am sure you can oc those babys pretty good.
nice article posted on tech spot about penryn and some info.
i would like to see the Q9450 (2.66GHz, 12MB) hit atlest 4GHz on overclocking.
