Download and install CPU-Z and it should tell you on there.

Download CPU-Z and look at the area that I've indicated in the screenshot. If your's says G0 there, then you have that stepping model (SLACR). Yours will look different from mine, as I have upgraded my CPU recently...but as long as yours says G0 in the Revision box, then you have a great OCing 6600.

I overclocked my old E5400 and am going to OC my new Q9400 i have after market cooling for it so its safe. but when I had my old E5400 i done it all on the FSB option under the BIOS getting it from 2.7 to 3.2 with out having to change voltage as this was perfectly stable and this is the safest and best way i found to d it after doing alot of research i found this to be easier to do and only touch voltages when going to an unstable level.

I remember this one time when I was overclocking my machine with the stock cooler and everything was working great until it started to get warm and then it rebooted a couple of times then when I finally turned off the machine and let the smoke clear I rebooted into bios and then switched the settings back to normal and let it run for a few days and it was fine then I tried to overclock it again and it was fine for a little while then I smelt something burning and turned the machine back off and opened up the case and the cpu cooler fell out because I didn't put any glue on the cpu to keep the cooler attached and then when I put the glue on and let it get hard I turned it on and it worked perfect for an hour or two then it just shut off so I called up Dell and told them what I was doing and they asked me what kind of glue I used and told them and they said to use this other glue and they sent me one to put onto the cpu and after I did that it has been working for the past 2 months and I have been a very happy camper.

Your CPU cooler fell off? I know it had to suck at the time, but that's pretty damn funny.
