  • Summary: I matched this order to a new motherboard. I don't have any idea what I received, because it was not new in the box. It failed, and the motherboard sales support said that they did not see the quad as a genuine upgrade for this motherboard. I had visited the Intel website to get all the specifications, but I no longer have accounts with Dell, Intel, or Microsoft as a result of either billing or shipping clerk interference with my order.

Be careful if buying used CPU, check that seller will garantee 4 cores work

  • Summary: I installed this Q6600 processor on my desktop, which has a BIOS and motherboard that supports Core 2 Quad processors. Unfortunately, Windows Vista (and CPUID CPU-Z, Core Temp, HWmonitor, etc.) only sees 2 cores instead of the 4 cores the processor is supposed to have. I don't know why this is, perhaps there are issues on the motherboard (though it works fine with 2 other processors), or perhaps the CPU has problems.

Are you kidding me?

  • Summary: For that kind of money, you can buy a chip that is twice as fast (Intel or AMD) and a new motherboard with support for SATA III hd and USB 3.0. I'm sorry, but that is just way too much for a two (3?) generations old processor.

  • Excerpt: I'm still currently using this process to this day and it performs flawlessly. It's been able to run all of the new and current games with ease still paired with one 6850 ATI Radeon card.

  • Excerpt: Honestly, I am upgrading soon to a SB system most likely, because performance in some stuff is iffy...but I'll be sad to see this guy go. Probably use it a HTPC for a new TV I plan to buy.

  • Excerpt: It certainly seems like a long time since I let go of my 775 build. When I built it 4 years ago it was running like a dream, the temps were pretty decent and performance was great.

  • Summary: Für die jenigen, welche mit dem Gedanken spielen diese CPU zu kaufen - Achtet welche Version Ihr bekommt (Stepping B3 oder G0) Ich pers. bevorzuge die G0 Version mit weniger Stromverbrauch, kann mehr Temp. vertragen etc. sSpec Nr SL9UM (Stepping B3) oder sSpec Nr SLACR (Stepping G0) siehe dazu auch: http://processorfinder.intel.com/List.aspx?ProcFam=2774&sSpec=&OrdCode= ggf. beim Händler anfragen, welche Vers.
