Running since 23SEP2008

Kevin B., Newegg
30 March 2016
  • Summary: I have 2 of them running on ABIT IP35 Pro XE LGA 775 Intel P35 ATX Intel Motherboards
  • Pros: Both have been overclocked to 3.2Ghz on stock Intel coolers for almost 8 years.
  • Cons: Robbed me of the fun of upgrading because it works so well.

2 February 2016
  • Pros: This has been running extremely smooth since I first got it in 2007, my first gaming rig. I decided to swap out my old HD 3650 (yes, ancient hardware) with an R7 240 and everything has run smoothly (don't you worry, this is only a temp. replacement :)) Will remain as one of my favorite CPUs of al...
  • Cons: Didn't come with a picture frame to hang this masterpiece from

  • Summary: I have been an avid AMD fan for years, but with the aging socket type and no major advances until mid 2016 I moved to an intel chip. I was on a budget, a slim budget and had to make due, so I chose to go with this particular chip. For its age this thing works very well on my Windows 10 build.

Richard O., Newegg
31 December 2015
  • Pros: Has been running 24/7 for 7 years+. O.C. @ 3.6 ghz. on a 790i ultra board.
  • Cons: Only issue is I can get the 2x 4mb Memory to 2000 but I can't get the FSB past 1600-LOL. Oh well- I'll keep trying.

Inconceivable!

17 December 2015
  • Summary: Sometimes I open the side panel of the case and just stare in awe, much like i used to do to my fishtanks when i had them.
  • Pros: Running this @3.2ghz, on an ASUS P5K3 Deluxe mb, with Corsair Dominator 4gb ram @1600 (6-7-6-18), and an MSI GTX 560 Ti. Now granted the ram and video were upgraded in 2011, but the cpu and mobo have been running completely stable on air @3.2hgz since October 2007. That's a 33% OC folks - this ha...
  • Cons: They stopped making them.

Amazing Indestructible CPU

Anonymous, Newegg
7 December 2015
  • Summary: Running DDR2 8500 1066 speed 3-4 gigs, XP & Win 7. Got a new GTX 750 TI sc 2 GB in the Pci E 2.0 slot. Kids had new Battlefront doing 60 or 70+ fps, it looked and played great.
  • Pros: Intel Q6600 man! Quad core. cache size. Bought it around Christmas time 2008 from right here at Newegg!!...with a GIGABYTE GA-EP45-UD3R mobo & a simple $35 Zalman CPU cooler fan. It has been O.C.'ed from 2.4 to 3.0 Ghz since day one (I could have clocked it to 3.3 Ghz or higher but I didn't, beca...
  • Cons: I understand it draws a few more watts of power than the newer CPU's do...so? It's not an issue for me...so negligible, its not worth mentioning even if my electr bill is off a few cents a month...fans on low probably offset cpu's higher wattage draw, It runs cool...
