From what I have read at xtremesystem, the q9650 are a given for at least what i have managed. If you have a decent mobo, you can get them to 4ghz!

My mobo is x38 chipset and from what I have read over there, the x38 mobos are 45 nm quad cpu limited.

Some guys with p45 mobos are getting past 4ghz!!!
