Upgrade 2009 monster machine builders box. Pulled dual core for Q9550 2.8. Added updated video, ram to 8 gigs. Old big board Asus still rolling. With windows 7 64 bit, all came in at 7.3 on the 1.0 to 7.9 scale. Only turtle component is the hard drive 5.9. Only fix now solid state drive. This PC still has plenty of life in it for my needs.

I stream from a media server to 10 devices. I used an old HP workstation that I loaded with 16 Gig of RAM. No matter what I did I couldn't get my streams to stop buffering.... Until I got this little monster! No matter what I stream or how many devices I stream to simultaneously it runs all smooth as silk. I highly recommend this CPU if your a serious HPC nerd with more enthusiasm than money. Arrived at my door on time and the kit even included the heat sink jelly. Nice touch, guys!

Got this used as an upgrade to my old Core2 Duo in a home-brew SteamBox I put together. It can be a bit daunting to swap out a CPU but this particular upgrade was literally two screws and a spring clip to remove the fan/heatsink assembly and extract the old CPU, then drop in the new CPU, put Arctic Silver on it and put it all back together. Passmark says it's more than double the performance and the SteamBox is crusing along better than ever now. Next... video card upgrade. I'm a bit leery about buying used CPUs, but this one JUST WORKED, first try. That's how I like it.

I had some concerns about the pre-applied thermal compound and contacted the seller, IT Hardware, and they got back to me within hours with an explanation. I installed the processor and it worked flawlessly from the beginning. I am very happy with this purchase and would have no hesitation to buy from IT Hardware again. I am using this processor on a Supermicro C2SBX+ motherboard and it is performing great. Thank you IT Hardware!

Ordered this as "used" from "Entermediaplus" March 17 2016. Received it promptly on the 21st. Packaging was minimal. Wrapped in bubble wrap in a large envelope. Good enough, I suppose. Anti-static bag would have made me feel better but it survived the trip. I installed it into a Asus P5E3 Deluxe WiFi-AP @n. BIOS version 1415. Replacing a oc'd Q6600. Why? Better bus speed and lower power consumption and less heat. Initially didn't POST. Was getting worried. Cleared BIOS by jumper and it POSTED. Checked the BIOS and looks fine. I have been running the system 24/7 ever since.

Good replacement for a core 2 duo. If you have an LGA 775 socket, this will work. Fans and grease are critical, though. These are good processors. In their heyday, they were somewhere around $1000 new. They will, all things being equal, rival the performance of some of the i5 processors, so if you're upgrading an old workstation to avoid the economic impact of buying a new system, this is an alternative

All motherboards are different, especially the older ones. And I have an older Maximus Formula that was just shy of a trick to update. So just make sure you do if you need to before installing the chip. At any rate, she sure runs smooth and perky with 4 on the floor just using the stock cooler is good enough without overclock. You can't beat a used CPU as usually are the last to fail and of good value. Was well worth the money going up from e8400. And the company was also great & reputable that sent it JSM, was only a few days!

first off ill say I had a few speedbumps at first to install it because I had a backplate from old heat sink so the pushpins wont work I'm to lazy to remove the whole motherboard to remove a backplate so what I did was cut the pushpins off and luckly found 4 M3-.5 X 12MM bolts with another double pair washers and now it fits and tighten perfect I was worried t first because I used old bolts from old heatsink that i modified and it didn't tighten down the Heatsink it was lose for the new intel stockfan was worred I ruined the TIM Thermal material I got temps reaching 90C on load so I immediately shut off pc till I bought bolts at home depot TIM didn't seem to break when I added these bolts everything seems ok I get 40C idle 60C load overall I love this deal a lot thanks a million ETARATECH guys ! :)

Great condition, PnP, for boards that support it. Performance is on-par with modern-day laptop CPUs, such as the i5-6200u, which is 2c/4t. This, being 4c/4t, it's Single core performance is a little more exaggerated, as each core will have 100% scp, versus the i5, which will probably have around 50% scp per thread. All-in-all, still a very reliable cpu, almost a decade from it's release date (Q1'08).

I bought this CPU for my old HP 4600 workstation to put a little zing back in. But it was very little zing. I kind of knew that before purchasing and it is no fault of the seller. The seller was great and delivered the CPU in a timely manner. This CPU was very easy to install and it works fine. Just not a big increase in speed.
