lol i must say that awnser confused me much more than i'd like to admit
Usaully later cpu steppings (ie revisions) means lower voltage (VC= voltage to cpu) for the same oc as previous steppings (G0 is the most current for Q6600 and for most/all current intel quads i think), and sometimes means a higher max OC as well but not guaranteed. Higher VC will increase temps under load (+ power consumption) so without better cooling your max oc will be limited due hardware instability as temps go far > 60C.
