Nice processor

Brian J. Buehler, Amazon
21 November 2008
  • Summary: This processor is a huge step up from my 7 year old computer. While I'm very happy with my purchase, the Intel Core i7's seem like a better choice once you get into the above $200 price point.

Great performance for the price

Jeremy K. Archie, Amazon
21 November 2008
  • Summary: Excellent performance for the current price. Runs cooler than my Q6600 (B3 stepping) at its higher base speed (2.5 GHz). Max OC achieved = 3.3 GHz, with 1.33V Vcore, and ZEROTherm Nirvana NV-120 HSF. Could possibly go higher, but water-cooling is required.

  • Summary: I currently own 2 of these which I bought online as OEM. 1 I am using right now & the other is for backup never used. I am thinking of selling both of them & getting a newer socket type motherboard that will allow me to go up to 64GBs of DDR3.

Lisa Bodnar, Amazon

  • Summary: Had old computer for kids using an intel core 2 duo 6570 in socket 775. The q9300 was expensive (top of the line) when it was first released, but has siginicantly dropped in price. Swapped processor out, systems back up and running again.

Get rid of your Duo

John, Amazon
21 November 2008
  • Summary: Dual cores are pretty much finished. Breath some life into your computer with an affordable upgrade. 2 extra cores go a LONG way even if the freq. is lower. I used this for an old 775 setup turned frag-box. With the Cooler Master 212 cooler I can't even break 60 deg Celsius.

Good for an Aging Processor

21 November 2008
  • Summary: It's the max my aging motherboard would accept but I knew that. Fine for everday computing, surfing, etc. and things that don't demand a high capacity processor.
