Still a beast even in today's computer world.

Summary: I love it for my old system , there are a million reviews on this so one thing I will say is that even though it is old it still is a beast with 12mb of L3 cash. I was able to over clock it to 3.5 with air cooling only (Arctic 7 ) with no problems and with water cooling i know that It could do 3.8...
Summary: I've been running the Q9650 since 2009, and currently run Windows 7 Professional (about to upgrade to Windows 10). Seven years later, and with a few upgrades to my hard drive and GPU, my custom machine is still flying along.
I can see a good difference in music and video rendering on my PC ...

Summary: I have a motherboard that can handle a processor compatible with an LGA 775 socket. After some research and comparison I have discovered that this processor is the most powerful. I also compared with the core i7 of my laptop through the website cpubenchmark and I was surprised to see that actually...
Best 775 socket CPU you can buy. Runs everything we've thrown at it and we are gamers...

Summary: Works great. The people I bought this from sell great products at wonderful prices. This is the fastest standard 775 socket cpu made (excepting that terrible over-prices custom "production" overclocked affair). It breathed new life into an aging 775 socket system and runs super fast.
Summary: Socket LGA 775 processors are becoming expensive because the LGA775 is being outdated. That being said, I absolutely love the processor. Its 45 nm keeps it cooler than the 65 nm q6770 processor and under my system, its under a heavy load.
Summary: For just $124 delivered (used), this processor was a bargain! In technology years, my old Shuttle SG33G5M system, which I built in 2007, is a dinosaur. Even so, I wasn't ready to kick it to the curb, so I decided to upgrade with a new CPU, more memory, an SSD, and a new fan to replace the original...
Summary: The Q9650 was just what I needed to upgrade my computer so I could stream TV shows and movies to my television. The processor came in an anti-static plastic case. It also came with a lifetime warranty! The seller included 2 syringes of thermal grease and a personal note. Nice touch!
Summary: Still a monster today. I have owned this CPU since 2009, OC'd to 3.3 using an Arctic Cooling Freezer Pro 7. It has been running pretty much 24/7/365 since then and still holds its own in late 2014. Would I do a new build with it today? Maybe, maybe not...depends on what I need and why I need it.
