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.

Pros: Rock solid and has withstood the test of time

Cons: None

Overall Review: I placed this CPU into a custom built rig in 2009, and it is still going strong. I have updated many parts and parcels (SSD, RAM, Video Card) along the way, and the C2Q never misses a beat. Temps stay constant and currently runs Windows 8.1 just fine. It's a shame they don't make things like they used to.

Why am I Reviewing this Again? 10/12/2013 11:20:58 PM

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.....

Overall Review: 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.

Great CPU for its time 8/20/2013 2:42:18 PM

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.

Overall Review: 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!

Good CPU 7/26/2012 8:21:38 AM

Comments: 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

Awesome Everyday CPU...Plus A Little More 10/25/2011 3:45:12 PM

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%.

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

Good CPU 4/27/2011 12:35:23 PM

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.
