Q9450 - Great processor but read my review

mlongbsa, Ebay
9 December 2012
  • Summary: This LGA 775 chipset is fantastic. I upgraded from a E2180 and can tell a difference. I'm using it with an Asus P5N-D motherboard. However, if your looking for stable overclocking and hardcore gaming on a budget (be mindful of your motherboard and PSU when overclocking) get a Wolfdale E8600. Wolfdale is the code-name for the E8000 series of Core 2 Duo desktop processors.

Power on tap!

Gordon Ewasiuk, Amazon
12 March 2010
  • Summary: There is something eminently satisfying about seeing FOUR cores listed during BIOS POST. TWELVE Megabytes of L2 cache? Fast, fast, fast. Installation was slightly annoying though. The processor/heatsink attaches to the motherboard with some plastic thumbscrew rubbish. It requires a specific order to press and turn the thumbscrews. Removal of the heatsink requires a bizarre turning, lifting, then turning combination of movements.

The Intel Core-2 Quad 9450 - Great Performance at a Price

Mark "Technology, Music and Movies", Amazon
12 March 2010
  • Summary: I've been building a number of systems lately, and needed to put together a few of my own too. So in addition to building several servers based on newer Xeon chips, I also have had the pleasure of building two core 2 quad systems recently. Intel's entire lineup of new chips have some real positives.

a pricey varient of the QUad core 6600

Kid Icarus "The Lad from Hades", Amazon
14 May 2008
  • Summary: If you are a power user, at this time you are still a "power user" with the old(recent) 6600, if you are playing games this is overkill. If you are "future proofing" don't bother, things happen to alter what archecture gaming will utilize in the future so it ain't a gaurentee, only a huge gamble and waste of money. Games may not impliment even quad core before some new unknown concept for CPUs comes out.

Mycket bra

Robeloto, Prisjakt
18 January 2013
  • Summary: Sent med omdömet här, men iaf. + sval + snabb (då, 2008) +klockvänlig Klockade min till 2,96GHZ, ändrade ej volt. Med Noctuas NH-U12P blir det cirka 55 grader i load. 41 grader i idle. Som föregående talare är denna processorn utdaterad, särskilt om man ska spela de nyaste spelen. Visst fungerar det, men men. =) Kan säga att när jag testade Borderlands 2 med denna processor och GTX 680 så var processorn en flaskhals för grafikkortet.

Mycket bra

Snillet, Prisjakt

  • Summary: Fungerar perfekt, stabilt vid 3.6GHz dock med rätt hög Volt; 1.375V på en pencilmoddad ASUS P5Q SE2, som annars har löjlig Vdroop (100mV+) Börjar dock kännas att processorn är utdaterad.

Spitzen Prozessor mit Reserven und niedrigen Temps.

Bonsai80, geizhals.de
3 August 2008
  • Summary: Der Prozi läuft bei mir in Verbindung mit einem ASUS P5Q Deluxe und 2x 4096MB DDR2RAM Corsair Twin2x 6400C4DHX. Er wird mit einem Noctua NH-U12P im Idle auf 30°C gekühlt. Unter Last sind es ca. 10°C mehr. Bisher keine Beanstandungen! Bin sehr zufrieden! Mein Fazit: Spitzen Prozessor mit Reserven und niedrigen Temperaturen bei einem guten P/L Verhältnis!

Zu empfehlen? Ja! aber leider nur bedingt.

  • Summary: Ich hab den Q9450 tray seit dem 2.4.2008 verbaut und hab mich deswegen schon sehr mit ihm beschäftigt. Zu Zeit läuft er bei 430Mhz FSB was 3,44Ghz entspricht. Als Mainboard verwende ich ein Asus Maximus formula. Leider ist bei mir bis dahin auch schon Schluss. In vielen Foren ist aber auch ähnliches zu lesen. Nur wenige bringen den auf 3,6ghz oder sogar noch mehr. Schade eigentlich, denn von der Spannung steckt noch eine menge Potential in ihm.
