awsome

Joseph L., Newegg
12 August 2010
  • Summary: great CPU for the money and runs cool 48c on ful load and OC'ed to 3.25 did go to 3.4 but the gskill ram i bought wont do its 1600MHz as advertised so i had to detune ram to get to 3.4..... bumped the ram to about 1400 and now sitting at 3.25.... buy good ram if u intend to OC
  • Pros: Fast and and easy. i put this in an ASROCK p45x3deluxe and this non server board found it without a hitch.

Excellent Multitasker

Arturo V., Newegg
2 July 2010
  • Summary: This proc is quite the performer for the money. I typically run several applications simultaneously, and my PC is very responsive. Among the apps always running: iTunes, Google Earth, DVD Decrypter, Firefox, Photoshop CS3. All of this running on a Windows 7 64-bit backbone.
  • Pros: Excellent overall performance, barely slows when launching applications, perfect for those who multitask for a living
  • Cons: I have read cons concerning the fan and heatsink. I ordered a Zalman CNPS9500 AT 2 Ball CPU Cooling Fan/Heatsink combination and installed it during the build. I have had zero heat concerns, and the combo is very quiet.

Worth the Investment

Chris T., Newegg
18 July 2009
  • Summary: At first I had a problem OCing this, but then I ran it at stock first, then OC'd it. I OC'd it before I ran it at stock first. I did not totally need a new chip, but now dealing with HD, I needed something with a little more bite.
  • Pros: 12MB cache, 1333Mhz FSB(mine runs at 1600mhz), SSE4 and multiplier at 8.5. All of these add up to better performance than the X3320 which this replaced.
  • Cons: Fan is smaller and LOUDER! It is probably smaller because the chip is cooler, bu still... Was not about $250!

Ronald G., Newegg
23 April 2009
  • Summary: My system: Gigabyte GA-EP45-UD3P Intel X3360 o/c 3.4 Gigabyte GV-R485ZL-512H Corsair 8gb 4x2gb DDR2-800 Seagate 500gb 2x Raid0 As always Newegg is awsome!!!
  • Pros: The Xeon is defenatly the way to go. I have it O/C to 3.4 with no voltage increrase and on air. Runs cool around 42c working and 30c idle (email, web ect.) by the Motherboard monitor. See below. This CPU is way fast and runs ProE and Solidworks great!
  • Cons: The core temps read way different than the motherboard reports, 70c working and 55c idle. I received a C1, not a E0. But runs like a champ.

BEAST!!!!

Anonymous, Newegg
26 December 2008
  • Summary: If you are considering the Q9400/Q9500 series or this for a server build, go this route. Intel made these especially for highly utilized TCP/IP I/O requests.
  • Pros: Okay...this was going into a small business server build, and I wanted it to be capable of handling multiple TCP/IP & svchost requests. It has gone above and beyond my expectations. Very fast and cool. Installed with an Arctic Cooling HSF & A.S. 5 thermal paste. Very impressed.
  • Cons: Well....I guess I would have liked a Core i7, but it hasn't ventured into the server realm full fledged yet.

1U ASUS Server

Noone E., Newegg
26 December 2008
  • Summary: -
  • Pros: This CPU is basically the pinnacle of what you will find for a LGA 775 socket. I placed this CPU in a ASUS RS100-E5. It's a 1u server with a small heat sink and CPU still stays very cool.
  • Cons: Few users will actually push this CPU to it's potential.

Awesome

Anonymous, Newegg
22 December 2008
  • Summary: Wear sunglasses when you open the box. The chip is very shiny and might blind you with its awesomeness.
  • Pros: Woah! Amazingly awesome processor. Runs very cool, runs fast, runs epic! I was able to overclock this +1ghz on a stock cooler, with absolutely no sweat at all. Good stuff.
  • Cons: The heatsink is... small? But I used the older Intel heatsinks and it's good.
