5 out of 5 eggsQ9300 was a good upgrade

Pros: Was a great upgrade from my duo core, overclocked on a gigabyte mobo from 1333 mhz to 2500 mhz. using the ga965p-s3 rev 3.3 mobo. does what is needed to bring new life to an older mobo.

Cons: none.

5 out of 5 eggsQ9300

Pros: This little CPU is surprisingly fast with low thermals from its 45mn manufacturing process, also utilizing a 1333mhz fsb this processor is easily compatible with ddr3 motherboards.

Cons: No real cons from my experience.

Other Thoughts: I used one of these little guys for a good long while overclocked to 3ghz to replace my HOT q6600, it remained cool at 1.3v's vcore and matched a far more expensive Q9650 in performance.

3 out of 5 eggsWas an okay chip for its time

Pros: Quad core in 2008
Could handle even today's top notch games when pared with a decent card
95w which is high for a Quad of its type now, but was much lower than the first Gen i7s and first gen Phenom X2s.
I have one and it is still running today.
LGA 775. There are Hundreds of upgrade/downgrade options for this chip as well as thousands of heatsinks for it.

Cons: Doesn't overclock at all. Tom's hardware did a test and only got 15% at max with insane Voltage increases.
Slow and power inefficient compared to today's stuff.
Required a decent cooler. Stock cooler I had finally died. I just replaced the fan on it and its 10 times better than it has ever been. Not complaining about the fan's life, but a generic 80mm fan should not keep the thing 20-40c lower than the stock fan... Perhabs a bad mobo sensor on my part... Board is also 6 years running.

Other Thoughts: The asking price for this chip is still way too high on any market considering price/performance of what is out there today. Especially since it cannot be over clocked to meet today's standards.
If you are still clinging on to LGA 775 equipment, this is you best bet, if not go with AM3+ or 1150 (or higher).
This had its place in time, but that time is gone.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat CPU

Pros: Saved money since it was possible to upgrade an old PC running Windows XP with DVD burning software that won't run on Windows 7. Also great at crunching video edits and conversions.

Cons: Runs at 50 deg. C despite using the same fan that keeps Q8300 and Core i5-3470 at 35 deg. C. Cost twice as much as the Q8300.

4 out of 5 eggsRefurbished Intel Q9300

Pros: Well, it works. Got it to replace my Core 2 Duo E8400. Does what it's supposed to.

Cons: Has a warped shell that has questionable contact. May have to lap to repair. Will re-do with silver-based TIM and revise, if it has better contact. Cores 1-2-3 are running 17c hotter at idle than 4. (49-51-51-35c). Using Hyper 212 EVO cooler with 2 fans.

Other Thoughts: I am happy with it overall. Getting lousy overclock, but not Newegg's fault. I'm running it on a Gigabyte EP43 UD3L mobo, and I guess P45 with DDR3 works better.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat 4 Core

Pros: Well if you have a 775 board which I have I wanted to upgrade from a Dual Core to a Quad Core for playing games with much better performance and graphics as this proccessor handles much more then a dual core does .

Cons: I actually have no complaints about this processor at all.

Other Thoughts: I wish they didnt do away with the 775 boards as I liked working with them the most but everything changes. I think that upgrading your system helps save you a lot of money. Instead of buying a newer system that should be custom built by you for what you want and not just factory made systems. Everyone cant build computers so they get store bought systems. I'm thankfull for stores like Newegg

5 out of 5 eggsworks great

Pros: Works great, had no issues

Cons: none at this time

Other Thoughts: Was reluctant to buy a refurbished but took a gamble. Replaced a dual core E5200. Took Windows 7 rating from a 5.9 to a 7.3. Works great, not bad for an older computer with a 775 slot.
