Summary: This processor was to upgrade my old one, and work just fine, just uninstall old one put this new one and I had no problems, delivery was on time and package was good. I made a simple check whit intel cpu verification program and it was as described....
Summary: Purchased it used for about 25% of the new price, and it works like new! Not an i series CPU but it is a quad core and according to the benchmarks it is about 5 times better than the core 2 duo 3.2 ghz that it replaced.
Summary: The Intel Q6700 is a real workhorse. All my applications are noticeably faster and more stable. Matched with DDR2, Radeon 5670 and Intel G33 chipset. W7 loads in less than a minute and has a WEI score of 7.3. I believe this to be compatible to an I5.
Summary: This processor is good, when I got it I and install it, I was not able to install the fan cooler that come with the processor in the box. I have to use my old one that was with the old Processor on my pc.
Summary: Previously, I had a Intel Core 2 Duo running at 2.66 GHz installed in my Dell OptiPlex 745 mini-tower. While it was fast, this just blows it out of the water. WEI scores at 7.2 for the Core 2 Quad. I use this as a server and it is able to handle tasks at ease compared to the Core 2 Duo. It also has increased my BOINC scores by an incredible amount. If all you're doing is office work or some Internet browsing, this is overkill.
Summary: I built my own computer for music production and I believed that my dual core processor would suffice. It didn't, so I decided to goquad core. I could've probably just got a faster dual core, but for the price that I received this one I didn't think twice- plus it's faster than my dual core and have twice as many cores. You won't be able to live with a stock cooler. I had to get a better one- Durin D982- and it keeps me with an operating temp of around 40.
Summary: I have an old Optiplex 360 System that runs a minecraft server and is like my home terminal when im not home and its old E1400 2 Ghz Celeron was not cutting it installed this thing through the thermal compound on worked like a charm even passed the stress test no problem :) Absolutely Love IT I WOULD RECOMMEND THIS TO ANY G33/G31 Board owner
Summary: installation of this processor took my windows rating from 6.2 to 7.2. I installed a GTX 650 video card at the same time so my PC (Dell OptiPlex 755, WIN7 64Bit with 8GB of memory runs like a champ. I'm quite pleased with my purchase.
Summary: I built myself a C2D 6600 system back in 2006, with the plan to expand if needed. I now am using applications that can use quad core, and took a gamble on this. I am not disappointed. For the money I spent, I got a chip that looks almost new, and runs flawlessly. I have yet to OC, as it has not given me reason to. I have yet to hit 100% cpu load. All in all, I got a new machine for just a few bucks, and have easily gotten a few more years out of my 680i motherboard.
