2013 and it's still going strong!

Kirk T., Newegg
15 November 2013
  • Pros: Replaced my Wolfsdale E8500 with this, been great for years and still playing games on highest settings. OC'd to 3.6Ghz.
  • Cons: Stuff changes to fast with intel and this is a good example. This CPU still does a great job and plays everything on highest setting with no problems.

Q9550S Low power great performance.

Jonathan M., Newegg
18 April 2011
  • Pros: I run a Linux server in my house, and I try to be as efficient as possible to lower the cost of ownership. Before I had a core 2 duo, after upgrading my server used around 55 watts on average, now it is down to 40 watts witch equates to about $35 dollars a year in energy costs. The chip is extrem...
  • Cons: It is pricey, but I am pleased with the results.

who needs a i7

LETICIA D., Newegg
20 September 2010
  • Summary: very good proc but if you don't want this i would recommend a i7 920 if not then get this one. its a very fast processor and mine destoys amd phenoms all day.
  • Pros: i got this proc over a yr ago and still running great. i have since oc'd this up to as far as 4.2 Ghz per core and its very solid even at 3.8Ghz. this thing generally does keep up with a couple of my friends i7 machines. so all in all very good for the price and with e0 stepping its all that much...
  • Cons: the price on newegg isn't cheap neither is tiger but i got mine for 240 last year and i see its only jumped up in price.

Love Intel, getting mad at newegg.

TRAVIS S., Newegg
5 August 2010
  • Summary: Been a loyal customer since 2001 or so. Placed mearly 30k in orders for me and others since then. THis had better not be the start of a new trend of saving three cents on a $800 order by not putting in packing peanuts or air bags.
  • Pros: Went with this processor and an USB 3.0 motherboard with DDR3 instead of upgrading to a newer socket after looking at head-spinning reviews of having a huge L2 cache. THis has 4MB more than most of the tests ive seen!
  • Cons: Newegg shipped this in a huge box with NO PADDING AT ALL inside. It had twelve inches by nine inches by five inches of travel on 3 axis. I sure hope it works. What's wrong with you, newegg?

cool processor

Doug N., Newegg
12 July 2010
  • Summary: I added a GTX480 to the cooling loop so I'm not exactly sure how much heat this processor is producing by itself. HWMonitor reports some strange numbers occasionally. I'm very happy with this so far though.
  • Pros: under liquid cooling my HWMonitor still reports one core getting close to 150F. it is odd to me that different cores report radically different temps but w/e
  • Cons: price is almost 100 more than the non "S" version.

Awesome processor

Roland W., Newegg
2 July 2010
  • Pros: Rock solid processor. It's been in use 50-60 hours a week, overclocked to 3.6GHz for 9 months. Using clock multiplier of 8 (rather than the max of 8.5) with FSB base frequency of 450 - which works out to a CPU clock of 1800Mhz versus the standard 1333 FSB. Using the memory multplier of 2.4, I hav...
