After installing the mobo and quad and booting it up, I couldn't believe how fast and beautiful a quad is. The CPU is more snappier than my old one. (Granted it wasn't a E8400). I could multitask four programs at once. Two virus scans, installing a program and listening to music on Youtube without any slowdowns.

There are downsides though:temps and vid.
Temps: mild usage (high 30's to low 40's) I have not stressed it yet.
Vid: 1.2375 My cousin's same quad has a vid of 1.1500.


Thanks for reading.

It was an E4500 overclocked to 3.2Ghz.
When I played Cod4 and ran a virus scan, it stuttered really badly. I had to pause the scan or set the affinity and set the priority to high.

As for the two virus scans, it's one virus scan and one spyware scan. AVG and Spybot.

something is up with your cpu

i can run a game, download, scan/defrag, transfer something, or run an ecoding at the same time.
