I'm not sure what the multi is...have to research that later.

EDIT: OK I see. It has a 8.5 multi, 1/2 multi higher than Q9450. With DDR3 and 470FSB I could do 4G with that thing. I think it would be possible on the Maximus Extreme. Maybe.

I reckon it would be a better folder than the Q6600, too.

I may be answering my own question here but if you have an opinion, chime in.
