This review is from: Intel Core 2 Quad Q6600 Kentsfield Quad-Core 2.4 GHz LGA 775 BX80562Q6600 Processor
I've had this GO stepping chip since December of 2007 in my first build with an ASUS Maximus Formula X38. I had it overclocked to 3.4 ghz for almost a year and half until I found out I could tweak it a bit and run at 3.0ghz at less than stock voltage (much cooler). I have dozens of things running all day and I just forget because it doesn't slow down. It even runs current games. I play Battlefield 3 at high settings and full 1080p and it never goes below 25fps. I am very attached to this processor (and motherboard) and hope to get another few years out of it. No processor has lasted me this long. Its very durable. As a teenager I threw some pretty high voltages at it and even turned on the computer once with no heatsink. It will always be my favorite cpu :) I think of it as an old, but still worthy muscle car. It is and will be my 1st cpu love.
No. That would be like talking bad about a best friend.
