Default Advice needed - G0 Q6600 or B1 QX6700

I have an offer for a cheapish QX6700 ES (Engineering sample) which is a B1 stepping. I'm considering whether to take it or get a G0 Q6600 instead. The 6700 will run hotter and not overclock as much but I believe it will reach 3200 which is what I am hoping for. A new 6600 will cost about 60% more and while a used 6600 will be about 20% more I can't find any available at the moment. Do you guys think I should hold out for a used G0 Q6600 or take the QX6700?

Go for G0. I have had huge problems convincing my QX6700 (B3) to run @3.2GHz, and then I switched to Q6600 (G0)

Thanks, worth the premium then eh? I just calculated and the electricity for one year would wipe out the difference in cost so yes I'll go for the Q6600 G0.
