The Intel Core 2 Quad processor is the latest in cutting edge processor technology for the desktop PC. Based on the Intel Core micro-architecture, the Intel Core 2 Quad processor delivers four complete execution cores within a single processor, delivering unprecedented performance and responsiveness. More instructions can be carried out per clock cycle, shorter and wider pipelines execute commands more quickly, and improved bus lanes move data throughout the system faster. Four dedicated, physical threads help operating systems and applications deliver additional performance, so you can experience better multi-tasking and multi-threaded performance across many types of applications and workload. A 4-pin connector is included for fan speed control to help minimize the acoustic noise levels generated from running the fan at higher speeds for thermal performance.

Intel® Core™2 Quad-Core Processor Product Highlight
By including up to 8MB of shared L2 cache and Front Side Bus speeds of up to 1066 MHz, the Intel® Core™2 Quad processor pushes the technological innovation envelope farther than ever before. For demanding users, this means the latest and most advanced software applications will open and work faster with excellent responsiveness. When used with the latest multimedia software and next-generation games, dropped frames, long waiting times and stuttering performance are history.
Intel® Wide Dynamic Execution. Enables the delivery of more instructions per clock cycle for shorter execution times and improved energy efficiency—accomplish more simultaneously and with greater efficiency.
Intel® Intelligent Power Capability. Turning off portions of the processor when they aren't being used improves overall energy efficiency and reduces heat production, resulting in a quieter, more energy efficient system.
Intel® Smart Memory Access. Increasing available data bandwidth means more multitasking with less slowdown—run more demanding applications simultaneously and accomplish more in less time.
Intel® Advanced Smart Cache. Placing data closer to the processing cores improves platform responsiveness and performance with a wide range of applications.
Intel® Advanced Digital Media Boost. Accelerates performance with a broad range of applications including video, speech and image, photo processing, encryption, financial, engineering and scientific applications.
With professional-grade photo, music and HD video editing software readily available for consumers, it's becoming increasingly popular to create, edit, and share entertainment with friends and family. Unfortunately, these same applications are notoriously performance hungry. Built to handle the most demanding software, the four cores of this Intel processor help ensure that when you're working with high-resolution photos, exporting your next audio mashup, or editing HD-quality home movies, your computing platform will be able to keep pace with your creative muse.
A computing platform featuring the Intel Core 2 Quad processor maximizes processing efficiency, allowing users to juggle multiple projects in multiple applications without experiencing the slowdown typically seen with traditional single-core processors. As a result, work and creative projects will get done sooner.
Next-generation gaming is more than just pretty environments and smooth motion. Behind the incredible visual realism of waterfalls or the unlucky ricochet of a bullet are intense, high-speed calculations of asset streaming, terrain generation, 3D rendering, and physics effects. When running select next-generation games, each of the cores in the Intel Core 2 Quad processor can be dedicated to individual processes, resulting in smoother, more lifelike graphics and further blurring the line between virtual and reality.

I purchased an Asus P5K PRO back in June and tested it with an Intel Celeron Dual Core E1200 1.60 GHz and it ran OK. I decided to buy this Intel Core 2 Quad Q6600 processor, and here's what I experienced.
This processor totally surpasses my AMD quad core by a lot. Not only is the computer faster, but my games run faster. I had noticed some FPS slowdowns with the AMD paired with an NVIDIA Geforce GT 630, and some occasional lag during games. The AMD board has PCI Express x16 2.0 while my Intel board only has gen 1 PCI Express x16, and the video card performance is better. Also probably is because of the better motherboard.
Windows 8.1 Pro boot time is 10 seconds faster with this processor and motherboard. I can honestly say I have missed out on the power of Intel CPU's.
I like both Intel and AMD boards/CPU's. I prefer AMD because of price, and have great potential. But this processor and motherboard has shocked me. I'm very interested in buying more LGA 775 Asus boards and Intel Core 2 Duo/Quad CPU's. Rock solid hardware.

Definitely recommend this CPU to anyone in high end gaming(all on Ultra except Shadows I disabled, but can run it if wanted)with a decent GPU(so it will not bottle-neck system performance). Movies, Blurays, and buffers YouTube with extreme quickness. No more seeing that awful Buffering Circle while watching YouTube on HD nor on any HD movies.
If you have a beefy cooler you can even overclock it quite far iv got mine at 3.3GHZ on the stock cooler but its quite hot so i might turn it down to 3GHZ
