could someone tell me the diff between B0 and C1 stepping? I'm trying to decide between P4 2.4 (B0) or P4 2.5 (c1)

Banned, well res' should have taken my reading advice and taken a few deep breaths.

Back on topic,

The C1 stepping has 2 differences from the B0,

1. A minor fix that gives the C1 a slight performance advantage clock for clock over a B0 chip.
2. A default Vcore of 1.525v instead of the B0's 1.5v

Generally they seem to overclock better but as always with overclocking YMMV.
