Intel Core 2 Quad Q8200 2.33GHz LGA 775 95W Processor BX80580Q8200

  • 1333MHz FSB
  • 45nm 95W
  • 4MB L2 Cache

Crush your enemies, climb the tower of paperwork -- or do both at the same time. Intel's Core 2 Quad Q8200 not only makes it possible, it makes it easy. The Core 2 Quad Q8200 has four cores that run at 2.33GHz and shares 4MB of L2 cache.

Quad cores means true multi-tasking and multi-threading. Tasks or threads get their own core; no more sharing one core and set of clock cycles. This lets you turn your system into the ultimate home entertainment center PC. One core handles the usual action on your operating system, while the second can play a DVD on the TV, the third download a file from internet, and the fourth one sends audio to the kids in another room with no lags or stutters. All this is made easier with Intel’s advanced Digital Media Boost.

The 45nm Intel Core 2 Quad processor is armed with Intel HD Boost, which implementing new Intel Streaming SIMD Extension 4.1 (Intel SSE4.1) instructions for fast high definition video editing and encoding, enhance the multimedia performance.

  • newegg Intel Core 2 Quad-core Processor With four processing cores, the multitasking monster Quad-Core Intel Core 2 processor delivers fourfold the performance on highly-threaded applications, taking your desktop PC experience into a completely new realm of mega power. The powerful processor delivers serious performance on the ultra-demanding games of today and tomorrow. The innovative 45nm quad-core technology optimizes thermal performance for reduced power consumption and noise.
  • newegg Intel Advanced Smart Cache Intel Advanced Smart Cache Technology dynamically allocates the shared L2 cache to each processor core based on workload. This efficient, multi-core-optimized implementation increases the probability that each core can access data from fast L2 cache, resulting in significantly reduced latency for frequently used data and improved performance.
  • newegg Intel Wide Dynamic Execution With Intel Wide Dynamic Execution, each of the four cores can complete up to four full instructions simultaneously, improves execution speed and efficiency, delivering more instructions per clock cycle.
  • newegg Execute Disable Bit (EDB) Intel's Execute Disable Bit function can prevent certain classes of malicious "buffer overflow" attacks when combined with a supporting operating system. Execute Disable Bit allows the processor to classify areas in memory where application code can execute and where it cannot. When a malicious worm attempts to insert code in the buffer, the processor disables code execution, preventing damage or worm propagation.

5 out of 5 eggsWhy am I Reviewing this Again?

Pros: 4 and a half years into my ownership and several computer revisions later its still the processor in my primary desktop...i have a laptop that i use more now but for this c2q being as old as it is, as many corners as i cut building this rig originally, and as many updates as i have done to the rig, its still rolling right along ready to see what the next 4 years will bring

Cons: Its not a shiney new Haswell I7.....

Other Thoughts: Considering that its paired with a radeon 7770, has been paired with a 4670, a gt9600 and onboard graphics, and hasn't had issues with any of them, we are doing good. besides that there is the random offbrand psu's that were in this computer at one point (since replaced with a OCZ ZT 750 watt psu) and it still works like a champ...and better than quite a few cheap processors (Pentiums and Celerons and even some I3's)

Im Considering replacing it but not because its a bad processor...its Just getting to the point where its cheaper to replace the entire computer then it is to replace the mobo and ram to get more than the 4gb ddr2 i have currently in it.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat CPU for its time

Pros: This CPU has gotten me through the ages when I've needed it most. Was great for games, ran smoothly, and took most of all I threw at it. Now for modern times in 2013, there are obvious betters that I would recommend (3770K). Its still working just fine in my custom setup, but it's about time I got an upgrade. It definitely beat the AMD that I had, which failed one after a few months.

Cons: None, really! It always has nice, smooth low resource usage. :) ...except when rendering/converting video.

Other Thoughts: I wouldn't recommend this in today's age, as all the software has been made for faster processors, though this is still. A great CPU for web browsing and simple office. It never gave me any troubles that I was able to trace back to it!

5 out of 5 eggsGood CPU

Pros: - Quad Core
- 95W TDP
- Low cost, many features

It performs very well. Does exactly what I wanted it to, and that is to run a mild gaming rig, with the ability to do other everyday things. I use it to edit video, photos and audio, play games, code, and it takes it like a champ. Given my system (listed in other thoughts) I haven't seen a bottleneck anywhere.

Cons: - No VT. I've never needed it, and don't see why I would with this processor.

Other Thoughts: I don't know why people are saying "it doesn't overclock well". I've OC'd mine to 3.00 GHz (429 x 7). Yes, I had to do it via the FSB, but my vCore is nominal, and it's stable. Has been for over a year. Yes it stinks the multiplier is locked. It's an ecobox. It's not meant to perform super fast like a "K" series processor.

Setup:
- ASUS P5Q Deluxe motherboard
- This Intel Core 2 Quad Q8200
- EVGA nVidia 9600GT 1GB vid card
- 8 GB (4 x 2GB) Kingston HyperX DDR2-1066 memory
- WD 1 TB HDD
- ASUS Combo Drive
- Thermaltake 700W Toughpower PSU
- Sabrent 68-in-1 Card reader
- NZXT Sentry 2 Touchscreen fan controller

5 out of 5 eggsStill working and as fast as ever

Pros: Works awesome, only have maxed it out 3 times in the two and a half years i have had it, plays nice with the HIS Radeon 4670 that i have.

Cons: no virtualization support (minor but would be nice)

Other Thoughts: I built this system in June of 2009 for a computer to replace a antique junker that i was using...a p2. at that point i downloaded win 7 rc for it and it was great...a cuple years later its still running, win 7 sp1 now but still fast, still great. i have upgraded the graphics 2 times now and this processor i have looked at replacing but that was only for virtuization support not because of lack of power. i have tried over clociking but that does not work with this one...oh well, had to try. the stock cooler keeps it at about 115 degrees F (47C) doing web browsing and Minecraft. if i let it idle it drops to about 100 F (38C). either way nice processor

4 out of 5 eggsAwesome Everyday CPU...Plus A Little More

Pros: Low power consumption and it's a robust quad core. This thing can take a beating. I can and have put it in my pocket, stored it in a plastic baggie, dropped and even kicked and yet it's still going strong. I've tested this CPU countless times and still performs like it should.

Cons: Only 4MB Cache. Doesn't overclock well, in fact it seems to run slower when overclocked 5%.

Other Thoughts: Had to choose between this and the XEON X3210. I bended up buying both just in case.

5 out of 5 eggsGood CPU

Pros: Bought this around 1yr ago to put inside my gaming PC I built. And so far it has been running smooth. Photoshop CS5 64 bit opens in matter of seconds along with Maya 2011.

Cons: Wouldn't really consider this a con but if you plan to get this for some gaming, don't use the stock cpu cooler. It overheated too fast and shut down my PC. I just bought another CPU cooler and it as worked fine so far.

5 out of 5 eggsQuad

Pros: It's a quad core, works hard that's for sure. Easily overclocked.

5 out of 5 eggsNice little Quad

Pros: I've had this installed and running smooth now for almost six months now. Easy to install, no weird issues to report. Super fast little quad core. Runs the latest games just great.

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: Apps that utilize all four cores run great on this CPU. Even single threaded apps and games don't skip a beat.
