Noticeably improved performance with an older motherboard (Asus P5Q)

Summary: I got this for an older motherboard (Asus P5Q) that I'm trying to nurse along for a little while longer. I went from a Core2 Duo 2.38 Mhz CPU to this CPU, and there was an immediate and very noticeable improvement in speed. One example is the performance while playing Dragon Age: Inquisition.
Summary: All is well so far...problem with fan/heatsink that came with it though. could not get it to stay firm in motherboard. Kept jiggling around so gave up after an hour and used stock sync n fan. Running cool though and effficient otherwise.
Summary: I received my new CPU quickly and was able to do fast install, I was up and running within 5 m and everything is running great now , Thank You. I would recommend this company products for quick service and timely support with any issue you may have.

Summary: This review is for: Intel Core 2 Quad Q9650 3.0 GHz 12M L2 Cache 1333MHz FSB LGA775 Quad-Core Processor I'm not an expert in computer things, but by December 2009 and January 2010 I armed two computers by myself (my first time). I was lucky, no big problems, thanks to Amazon, great service...
Summary: That is a good processor for an upgrade on socket 775 if you want not yet pass to core i7 or i9 (for example if you have already a strong motherboard with a lot of RAM like me). Difference in game isn't so important (in comparative with i7) with a good GPU.
