Default G0 stepping doesn't seem all that great...

Take a look for yourself:

Are new G0 chips really too good OCers? - No! - XtremeSystems Forums

I am very dissapointed now with "this new magic G0 cpus" ... i have TWO pretty new Retail E6750 chips and E6650 chips. First E6750 is Orthos stable only at 3400MHz at 1.55V real ..., second is very similar ... 3400MHz at 1.53V - this is very poor score.
=(

the thing to keep in mind is that all CPUs overclock differently and a new stepping isn't going to change that. just like not all B2s are killer chips but some are...some are beyond killer. some G0s are going to be great, some are not going to be good at all...luck of the draw.

don't let one user who doesn't understand how "luck of the draw" works to turn you against grabbing a G0 chip. it's just the same as its always been. do your research for what weeks are showing up to be decent (we will obviously have to wait for that data to filter out), find one from that week, and cross your fingers because even with a killer week...you are still guaranteed nothing when it comes to overclocking.

or just do what i, and many others do...buy about a half dozen, test them all then sell the rest ;)

I think everyone got the impression that all G0's were good overclockers. I'll probably buy used then.
