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!

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.
Not up to the performance of the latest and greatest, but for a basic home or office PC, perfectly adequate.
