I've got an E8400 and 4GB of XM2 DDR2 coming for $10 from a mate off here biggrin.gif

I'm waiting for my Optiplex 780 with the same processor to come in the mail right now smile.gif

Nice! Well they're $12 on eBay Australia, but it's free so it's good as.

Well I paid for shipping, even if some of the RAM doesn't work I have some 667 here which should still get a bit out of a Q6600 as I'll probably be running that anyway.

I've got a Optiplex 780 SFF which had an E8400. It's now a 9550S which I paid way too much for. Running at stock you can't do much with these machines.

Thanks, Revhead

I just want to do basic tasks on it, then in the future I will probably throw in a 771 Xeon and do some slightly less basic tasks on it.
Either way, E8400 > Pentium 4 so I'm content.

E8400 will be a very good machine for basic browsing if you have enough RAM (4GB or more) and an SSD.
Would suggest overclocking it if possible, but if not it's still not bad at 3GHz.

9550s was a thing? Yeah that'd be rare as hens teeth right now. tongue.gif

What's the power draw compared to a regular 9550?

Draws 65W. Paid $A100 at the beginning of the year. More than the $A67 I paid for my X5470 or $A110 for 2 x E5450's. I believed at the time the Q9550S was the most powerful CPU my 780 would run - bearing in mind its SSF which doesn't allow much room for a decent heatsink. I even shelled out for a 95W rated heatsink (has a small patch of copper over the core) only to find out the heatsink that came with it was the same. LOL

Thanks, Revhead

Not sure if I'll pick up an SSD or not (already has 500gb HDD), but it already has 4gb of DDR2 which I plan on upgrading to 8gb of DDR3 and upgrading to some-odd-xeon and throwing in an HD 6450 so I can use it for light gaming (DS games + anti-aliasing is a must try if you grew up with Nintendo) and getting a low profile cooler for some overclocking.

It depends on the board you have as to whether or not you can upgrade to 8GB of DDR3. You might be able to get some 4GB sticks of DDR2 (assuming it only has 2 slots) and run 8GB that way.

Yeah, all Core 2 Quads came with the copper cooler, the Core 2 Duo's past a certain revision did not. IIRC.

$100 for a Q9550s isn't bad, but yeah considering you can get the xeons with low TDP's cheap it's not the greatest deal.

I'm not going to xeon mod my board, I've got a Q6600 and an E8400 as I've mentioned as well as other chips available, potentially some through work out of scrap machines. smile.gif

I believe the 780 supports up to 16gb DDR2/DDR3 except for the USFF model which supports 8gb DDR2/DDR3.

I'm running 8GB of memory in my 780. 4x2 as I recall.
Mine came with an E8400 aboard, so I'm not sure how it ended up with the copper heatsink?

Thanks, Revhead
