Great CPU

Anonymous, Newegg
30 June 2015
  • Pros: Saved money since it was possible to upgrade an old PC running Windows XP with DVD burning software that won't run on Windows 7. Also great at crunching video edits and conversions.
  • Cons: Runs at 50 deg. C despite using the same fan that keeps Q8300 and Core i5-3470 at 35 deg. C. Cost twice as much as the Q8300.

Refurbished Intel Q9300

Micah M., Newegg
5 April 2015
  • Summary: I am happy with it overall. Getting lousy overclock, but not Newegg's fault. I'm running it on a Gigabyte EP43 UD3L mobo, and I guess P45 with DDR3 works better.
  • Pros: Well, it works. Got it to replace my Core 2 Duo E8400. Does what it's supposed to.
  • Cons: Has a warped shell that has questionable contact. May have to lap to repair. Will re-do with silver-based TIM and revise, if it has better contact. Cores 1-2-3 are running 17c hotter at idle than 4. (49-51-51-35c). Using Hyper 212 EVO cooler with 2 fans.

Great 4 Core

Vincent S., Newegg

  • Summary: I wish they didnt do away with the 775 boards as I liked working with them the most but everything changes. I think that upgrading your system helps save you a lot of money. Instead of buying a newer system that should be custom built by you for what you want and not just factory made systems.
  • Pros: Well if you have a 775 board which I have I wanted to upgrade from a Dual Core to a Quad Core for playing games with much better performance and graphics as this proccessor handles much more then a dual core does .
  • Cons: I actually have no complaints about this processor at all.

  • Summary: Intel Core 2 Quad Q9300 (M1) Yorkfield 2.5 GHz 6M L2 Cache 1333MHz FSB LGA775 Quad-Core Processor. The Youngest of Yorkfields, the nominal frequency of 2.5GHz, but is sufficient to do every daily task.
