Give me faster lock speed and now I have 4 cores!

This processor was a replacement for a failed chip in my computer and works just fine.

Everyone seems to love the idea of overclocking it; maybe I'll get to that sometime.

My Dell Dimension came with an Intel® Core2 Duo Processor E6420 with 4M Cache, running at 2.13 GHz with a 1066 MHz FSB (a 65 nm Conroe chip). According to Dell and various chat rooms, I could upgrade this processor on the stock Dell motherboard and current bios up to a Core2 Quad Q6700 processor. What I found that I could easily afford was the Intel® Core2 Quad Processor Q6600 with 8M Cache, running at 2.40 GHz, with a 1066 MHz FSB (a 65 nm Kentsfield chip).

These links are to the Intel product pages for each chip.
[...]
With my Core2 Duo E6420, my overall PassMark rating (score) averaged 922 over three runs. After the swap for the Quad 6600, my rating averaged 1235 over three runs. Very good improvement! However, my CPU test speed more than doubled after the swap, and my sub-scores dramatically improved for RAM, HD access, and 2D and 3D video scores. Only my CD-ROM test scores did not improve.

My Windows Experience Index for my processor and RAM were both at 5.4 with the Duo. With the Quad, both scores jumped up to 7.1!

Note - I have Win 7 Home Premium on this computer, with 4 GB DDR2 PC2-6400 RAM (Kingston HyperX), and an NVIDIA GeForce GT 240 video card.

So far, I'm very happy with the Quad 6600, and I expect it to "future proof" my computer for a couple more years.

2013 and i just got myself the Q6600, paired with a micro ATX ASRock G41 mobo. gotta say its a sweet little combo. for the people complaining about the price... its worth it. i paid 90 plus shipping for a used one, don't pay more then 140 for one new OR used. unless your still with the 775 socket. mind you even though its an older outdated socket type/CPU it kicks A$$! upgraded my Pentium dual core E2160 running at 2.8Ghz with a windows rating of 6.2 and took it to a 7.1! at the stock clock 2.4Ghz, i currently run it at 2.8Ghz "1333 FSB limits anything higher on MY mobo"
CPU mark score of 3255.
only cons i can think of offhand is lack of L3 cache. but the 8MB makes up for what it lacks. 105 watts is pretty high but with all the cores loaded, after using Antec diamond formula 7 thermal paste it stays nice n warm around 120-130F with a stock,not so good condition HSF. for the price id say if you don't want to go with the intel i series, i3 etc, stick with this CPU. its on par with my old AMD quad core which was a Athlon II 640 stock at 3Ghz. which got a CPU mark of 3500. with a good board and water cooling, a 3.4Ghz clock on this bad boy will surely crunch out some impressive scores in many aspects!

I could do pretty much all I wanted til the RAM usage was full... overclocking this was super easy, and when I made a mistake, the CPU shut down and did not damage itself. My average temps with an Arctic Cooling Pro heatsink was averaging 45c under heavy use, and I think it could withstand more than that.

For around $50, I'd still use it, but there are things that handle today's technology much better.

I needed an upgrade from a Core 2 Duo and I'm very happy I went with this one. There are vendors now selling it for $120, so its pricing is on par with a modern i3. Its performance is, by benchmark, slightly worse than an i3, but one can use the same old 775 motherboard you have and probably keep your old memory. It also have a massive L2 cache (8mb) and 4 cores compared to the smaller l2 (4mb) and 2 cores of the i3. This is an entirely respectable upgrade even now and it should continue to run things rather well for years to come. Everyone seems to love the idea of overclocking it; maybe I'll get to that sometime. Stock, I went from a 5.8 to a 7.1 on the windows 7 experience index; your mileage may vary.

I previously had a 1.8 GHz dual core processor in my computer, but it was so slow, I figured it was finally time for an upgrade. The processor installation had no complications other than those caused by my own stupidity. Always update your BIOS before installing the new processor.

Was delivered promptly within 3 days of order. Processor was functional on my DG965OT motherboard (in excellent condition) as part of an upgrade project to install 64-bit Windows 7 from Windows XP. This replaced and E6400 along with a 2GB to 4GB memory upgrade. This is a G2 Stepping Q6600 with a TDL of 95 Watts.

We were upgrading our pc, and wanted something a bit faster without having to replace the motherboard and spending a lot of money, and this processor seems to fill the bill. It wasn't in a factory carton, but seems to work fine, with no problems.
