Go for the Core 2 Extreme QX9770. The QX9770 ...

  • 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.

Great CPU

  • 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.

Finally Upgraded

Amazon Customer, Amazon

  • 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.

Upgraded LGA775 (E8400) to QX6850

  • 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.

Fast processor, but not for this price!

  • Summary: This thing screams, circa 2008. In 2013, it's an old socket type. I actually laughed out loud at the $1450 price tag. You can buy a much, much faster processor for about $500, and a faster processor for $200. Just get an i5 or an i3.

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.
