Qx6850?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Recently, one of my uncles passed away at a young age of 38, and was a computer enthusiast. Knowing I was fond of computers, he left his old computer stuff to me, most of it was pretty standard, some older graphics cards etc.

There however was a real gem in his stuff, an unopened Core 2 Extreme QX6850. It is compatible with my current motherboard, the P5N32-E Sli plus.

How well do these CPUs overclock under Air? I wasn't sure how well it would overclock, being several years old now.

it can get to 4.0GHZ just fine.

It's still a 65nm quad

if you want 4.0 get water cooling.
