Excellent Upgrade

B. Christopher, Amazon
4 weeks ago
  • Summary: I purchased this as an upgrade for my HP EX495, Windows Home Server. It was a completely painless upgrade. All you need in addition is a little bit of Artic Silver thermal paste.

Great upgrade for an older PC, easy installation.

Wayne James, Amazon

  • Summary: The Q9550S doubled the processor power of the E6550 it replaced. My OptiPlex 755 SFF has been given few more years of life to it. Windows 8.1 64 bit system running great! Highly recommended.

HP EX495 Server

Mike Murray, Amazon
19 August 2013
  • Summary: I've upgraded my HP EX495 Server with this processor and it's made a big difference. Prior to the new processor the server was pretty laggy, in fact, I started to consider other options. This processor breathed new life into the server and it's now a snappy little machine. My next step is to upgrade the memory.

  • Summary: I was going to just build a new PC, but this with a new video card works fast enough for me. I can encode a video,play a game and copy files from one drive to another , and not notice any lag.

Tha fastest LGA775 CPU fitting into 65W TDP

aspt611, Ebay
9 September 2012
  • Summary: I've got a micro-desktop PC (3-litre Acer) with LGA775 socket and max CPU TDP of 65W, and wanted to get maximum performance out of it, so the choice was quite obvious. As these Quads are essentially two Duos on one die, there were no problems with rather old BIOS of my PC - it already contained the required microcode. The performance in amazing - decoding 1080p H.264 video takes only 20 to 25% of CPU time on this processor.

Received the processor & fan. Missing parts for fan.

zelfren, Ebay
11 January 2011
  • Summary: I received the processor and fan. Processor works fine. But the fan.. the installation parts were missing so I have a nice "paperweight". I contacted Zalman about available installation parts but no response so far. So it appears I can not use the fan nor will I be able to resell the fan. Maybe I can get a couple bucks at the recycler for scrap metal.

Temperature sensors are of bad quality

sonicmixmaster, Ebay
16 February 2010
  • Summary: CPU runs great! The only problem i notice is that the temperature sensors on each of the 4 cores are not really accurate and vary at full load and idle drastically. I'm talking about that all temperatures should be fairly equal on each core but they are not. At idle core 1 and 2 are at 27 Celsius and core 3 is at 35 core 4 is at 37 and the last 2 cores are "stuck" in this temperature until processor exceeds those temperatures.
