Wait, you're spending $1500 on a chip and not doing a WC setup?

Save yourself the money and get a Q9450. If you won't be using this chips full potential, don't get it.

I have absolutely no interest in water cooling and will not consider it in the future , and I have no plans for Q9450 or Q9550.

Why spend $1500 on a CPU if you won't be using it fully? It's almost a waste.

And why don't you plan on using a Q9450 or Q9550?

My goal is to have an ultimate "all-in-one" system with top of the line components but I will aircool it with a TRUE. The reason I asked was because the COSMOS-S cannot fit a TRUE so I wondered what kind of temps with stock heatsink inside a COSMOS-S.

I see. If you plan on building the ulitimate system, then go ahead, but I wouldn't buy a Qx9770 without some serious cooling setup.

It doesn't matter whether you can afford it. Even if you can afford it, it's not worth the money at all. When overclocked, both the Q9450 and the Q9550 perform identical to this overpriced thing. We're not criticizing you, we're critizing Intel for charging triple the amount of what the chip is actually worth! Don't fall prey to the claws of Intel's Marketing Machine. The only thing 'QX' means is: 'I've just paid triple the amount of money for NO gain in performance'.

Sorry if this sounds like a rant. If you somehow see a benefit in the QX9770, by all means, go ahead.

Note that the QX9770 isn't even the top-of-the-line... Skulltrail (dual CPUs) is.

I just read the whole thread and they do seem to be a bit harsh on you. I don't think any of them realized you were from Canada and your temps will be better than any of theirs just on account of the weather there.
If you wait a couple of months and open the windows while overclocking( wear a coat please) those guys will be jealous of your temps even with the stock cooler.

Which part of your research did convince you that a QX9770 is a better overclocking chip than the Q9550 or Q9450?

And again, the ultimate is the Skulltrail platform:
Two QX9775 at $1,548.99 a piece and a motherboard for $659.99. A lot of money, but in this case it's actually worth considering it(!) I know, I'll be receiving flak for that comment also.

Thus, either the Q9550, or go all out for Skulltrail. The QX9770 is a rip-off.

Note that members here value a CPU or any other component on overclocked performance. Agreed, on stock speed, the QX9750 is the fastest chip (compared to the Q9550 and Q9450). However, either chip overclocks similarly, and thus the speed difference at stock will disappear.

The Skulltrail platform is an exciting platform by Intel... expensive as heck, yeah. Fast, heck yeah. Contact CyberDruid if you want more info... he has a Skulltrail rig running

I don't want to debate weather or not it is a waste of money, but the only Quad I've seen so far over 6.0 is the QX9770. It seems like a better OCer than the QX9650.

Please correct me if I'm wrong. I'm certainly not an expert.
I know it's on phase, and he's getting nowhere near that. I'm just talking about highest clocks.
Oh and Chozart, I'm not giving any flack, this is just my 2 cents.
