Summary: I ordered this CPU to extend the life of my current gaming system which has an older Intel Duo-Core CPU. The Package I received was brand new and unopened and the CPU fired up first time and is running nicely @ 3.1MHZ with a slight Overclock.
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.
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...
Summary: Ich habe diese CPU in einen Barebone-PC (Asus P6-P5G41E) eingebaut. Durch den geringeren maximalen Stromverbrauch - 65 statt 95 Watt (Standard-Q9550) bleibt die CPU im Durchschnitt 10° C. kühler und der Geräuschpegel der Lüftung/Kühlung fällt etwas dezenter aus - OHNE Abstriche bei der Leistung!
