    Specifications: Selling an Intel Core 2 Quad Q9650 SLB8W processor, 4 Yorkfield cores (no HT), 3.00GHz max frequency, 12MB L2 cache, 1333 MHz FSB, 95W TDP

    More info: http://ark.intel.com/products/35428/Intel-Core2-Quad-Processor-Q9650-12M-Cache-3_00-GHz-1333-MHz-FSB

    It was taken from my sister's desktop, which has been replaced with a lower power LGA 771 Xeon. It was known as working when removed.

    I bought it two years ago in UK, during my period of use I've not overclocked or modded it.

    Besides a few marks on the lid it's in pretty good shape, no PCB damage, no missing chips underneath.

    Lid has already been cleaned with ArctiClean, when not in use it's always in a plastic protective case.

    Please note that NO cooler is included to save shipping cost. (No cooler was included when I bought it, too)

    Nevertheless, a genuine Intel plastic protective case (and a rather tough one) will be included.

    IMPORTANT
    Please note that the price does NOT include postage cost, but since the package is so light I may as well provide free postage, depending on your location. Therefore, please PM me your location if interested.

    HK post offices are closed on Sundays and public holidays (the upcoming two are 1st and 3rd of May, Labour Day and Buddha's Birthday respectively), as such I won't be able to post items on these days.

    [For international buyers only] Currently I accept PayPal as the sole payment method, to protect your transaction and conform to the rules here, you must pay the items as merchandise and goods.

    Nice!!! I'm interested to purchase. I'm sleepy and plan to make the payment after I wake up tomorrow (if you don't mind :p ). If you would like me to make the payment by tonight however, please feel free to inform me (before I sleep :p ).

    Thank you.

    I would like to inform you that I have received the CPU few days ago. However, I only installed it on my sisters PC yesterday because I was a little bit busy few days ago. Below is the results before and after the upgrade:

    So far I think the PC still feels laggy. I will proceed upgrading the RAM if necessary.

    Hello. How are you? Sorry for not contacting you for a very long time because I was busy lately.

    I received the memory modules that you sent 2 weeks ago, but I only installed it onto my PC last week. Below are the result:

    I will discuss in detail about the result in the original forum thread.

    Hello, how are you?

    I would like to do the following things:
    1) Continuing to upgrade my sister's HP dc5800 small form factor's memory from 8GB DDR2 800MHz to 16GB DDR2 800MHz (and also NVidia GeForce GTX1050/1050Ti). Please read the following link for more detail:
    http://forum.notebookreview.com/thr...actor-if-possible.795605/page-6#post-10687484

    2) Building another custom desktop with P45 (or P43) chipset (because I have a spare Intel Core2 Quad E8600, and can consider to upgrade with Interl Core2 Quad or Core2 Extreme). Please read the following link for more detail:
    http://forum.notebookreview.com/thr...ntel®-core™2-quad-q9650.813781/#post-10697245

    Please let me know if you have some more of the items below that you would like to sell:
    1) 4 x 4GB DDR2 800MHz (for my sister's HP dc5800 small form factor desktop)
    2) NVidia GeForce GTX1050/1050Ti (for my sister's HP dc5800 small form factor desktop)
    3) P45 or P43 chipsets that supports 16GB of DDR3 memory (for my custom desktop)
    3) Intel Core2 Quad Q9650 or intel Core2 Extreme QX9770/QX9650/QX6850.(for my custom desktop)

    Thank you very much.

    I used to run a Q9650 at like 4.5ghz with a water cooling setup I used to have, was a great CPU, back then we had these FSB holes that were hard to avoid, which made you think you reached the limits of what was possible, unless you overstepped them and went way beyond them.. was all good fun

    I would like to purchase another used Q9650. Is it a good idea to purchase it? Somebody from other forum told me that it is not a good idea to purchase overclockable items because those items might be abused / heavily worn-out during overclocking by previous owners.

    If you're getting one for your P43 motherboard, you may have a look on LGA 771 Xeon: they're cheaper and for some models (L-series and E-series with 1333MHz FSB) they have lower TDP.

    However you'll need a modded BIOS and a pin mod sticker on the contact pads. Also (the harder part) you have to remove the two plastic tabs on the CPU socket with a razor blade (unless you bought one that has modded tab holes), it's risky but as long as you don't put too much force you won't break the pins, I've done quite a few times without bending a pin.

    The Xeon equivalent of Q9650 is E5450 (80W TDP) and X5450 (120W TDP). I think I still have a spare E5450 with the sticker applied.

    pffft this chip is hard as nails, I ran mine OC'd for over a year at 4.5Ghz and it was like brand new.

    However, I also lapped the IHS to the copper and pasted it properly, that made all the difference in the world.

    The thing needs lots of voltage, I forget what but like 25% to 50% more then it uses at stock clocks to go 4.5Ghz, sure is a lot of power and heat, but it was a fun chip.
