Excellent buy 12/11/2008
This review is from: Intel Core 2 Quad Q6600 Kentsfield Quad-Core 2.4 GHz LGA 775 BX80562Q6600 Processor
This chip is phenomenal. Installed on an Intel DP35DP motherboard, 2 sticks of 2GB G.Skill DDR2 667 (4GB total RAM), and it runs like a champ. No heating issues, just keeps going and going.
None from the product itself, just what I installed it on.
I've been running this chip on stock cooling at it's native clock speed since I got it and it's great. I've never had it under a full load, nothing I do seems to get it there. I mostly game and some 2D art programs (Adobe Creative Suite) so there's no video rendering but still.
I've heard this chip is excellent for OC but unfortunately, the board I installed it on won't support overclocking, so I'm stuck at the stock clock speed. Like I said though, I've never managed to push all the cores to 100%, so it's not really necessary.
This is an excellent processor. I would (and have) recommend it to anyone.
The machine is as follows:
Intel Q6600 Core 2 Quad 2.4 GHz
Intel DP35DP Motherboard
4GB G.SKILL DDR2 667 RAM w/ heat spreaders
500w Antec Phantom PSU
Sapphire Radeon HD4850 512MB
120GB Western Digital HD 7200 RPM (I forget specifics)
250GB Seagate Barracuda 7200 RPM HD
