  • Summary: Go for the Core 2 Extreme QX9770. The QX9770 is the king of the 775 socket, though this one here I bought is the king of the 1333Mhz front side bus speed on the 775 socket. The QX9770 has a front side bus speed of 1600mhz, hence the king of the 775 socket.

Its a cost efficient way to extend the life of your Socket 775 system!

  • Summary: She is a beast. While it is no Intel I5 it still holds up extremely well for it's age. I personally will not be overclocking this processor as it is for my son to play some games, do homework and other things. I have it paired with a Radeon HD 5770 and 8 gigs of DDR2 memory. It will serve him well for the next year or so, then I was thinking about converting the system into an emulator box.

Great CPU

Buying_Stuff "Quotes", Amazon

  • Summary: Wanted to breath some new life into my aging computer, so I found the best processor that my board would accept, this is the one. The dual core that I was using before would regularly run at 100% and eventually overheat, this one stays cool and I've yet to use more than 70% of its power. If you're looking at this CPU, you're probably in the same boat that I was, well, the claims are accurate, these are awesome. Arrived in pristine condition and fired up right away.

Finally Upgraded

Amazon Customer, Amazon
19 April 2014
  • Summary: I bought my Gigabyte motherboard several years ago and opted to go with a more expensive model with room for expansion. At the time, money was a little tight so I only bought 2 GB of memory and went for a 32-bit dual core CPU. I knew I would need to upgrade at some point but the build fit my budget and gave me room to grow. I finally upgraded last week and went with the Intel Core 2 Extreme Quad Core and tripled my memory. Just like getting a new computer!

  • Summary: Prompt delivery. Chip was tested prior to shipping. Did not come with box or OEM fan as pictured (no issue -this chip gets hot and needs better heat sink). No complaints, very satisfied.

Worked with the Stock board on the Asus CM5671-05

  • Summary: Great upgrade from Dual core processor. I was worried it might not work with my motherboard but it did. Installed in ASUS CM5671-05 stock motherboard. Asus does not have much info on the motherboard on their website because it was a OEM built PC.

Asking price is too high for this old technology.

jeffdavismyphu, Ebay
21 August 2012
  • Summary: If I were to do it all again, I'd probably just bite the bullet and get a new mobo and memory and get a modern i5 processor instead. I wanted to save the expense of the mobo purchase, but this processor should not still cost what you can get an i5-2310 for, which will crush this older processor. That said, this thing still runs most games acceptably well and handles other tasks on a performance level most people will be satisfied with.

  • Summary: I Upgraded from a Pentium 4 Extreme Edition 3.733 chip (Single Core) to this awesome Quad Core Extreme, the performance is unbelievable. Day and night difference, this chip runs cooler and way faster than the old one. Very happy with this CPU.
