Summary: Was delivered promptly within 3 days of order. Processor was functional on my DG965OT motherboard (in excellent condition) as part of an upgrade project to install 64-bit Windows 7 from Windows XP. This replaced and E6400 along with a 2GB to 4GB memory upgrade. This is a G2 Stepping Q6600 with a TDL of 95 Watts.
Summary: We were upgrading our pc, and wanted something a bit faster without having to replace the motherboard and spending a lot of money, and this processor seems to fill the bill. It wasn't in a factory carton, but seems to work fine, with no problems.
Summary: Bought this CPU used for a PC made up of leftovers from other upgrades. Quite adequate for Windows 7 with a Windows benchmark of 7.1. Not up to the performance of the latest and greatest, but for a basic home or office PC, perfectly adequate.
Summary: Come from an E5200, this is what I needed for a low cost. So far I can play BF3 when on a server with more than 32 slots, which is what I bought it for. This still runs all my older games well and even the newer ones that have been released.
