Re: Anyone running a Q9650 here?
I toyed with the E8400 and E8500s too. The quads are more work on the motherboard and more heat was generated from the NB to the CPU itself. The E8400 is a nice chip and sure it's cooler but the quad will crush it in multithreaded apps and multithreaded games. Unfortunately the heat comes with quad.
i7-2600k @ 4.6Ghz, Zotac GTX 680 (1310/7000), 16GB DDR3 1600, 2 x 1TB Samsung F3 RAID 0, Windows 7 x64, CPU and GPU custom watercooled
