Pros: Quad Core, Low VID, High Performance, and Bargain!
Cons: No Hyper Threading, No Turbo Boost, No Built in Graphics Core.
This chip is pure awesome 775 Quad core with low VID (mine 1.175V)
With Great overclocking potential!
Performance after overclocking is close to high end 1st gen SB i7s!
With this minor upgrade from E5200, I can definitely say my next major upgrade will be done in 2015!
We have a **Q9650 Club** on OCN. Check it out!
Recently, I've pruchased ASUS U3S6 to make my current sig rig to last longer!
Update: I've added the ASUS U3S6 in the product database and have written a review on this expansion card.
