Pros SLACR revision runs slightly cooler with less power consumption. Super Fast
Cons Fan that comes with it is adaquate, but 3rd party cooling can do better
Summary If you want to get a good fast processor for a PC, this is it. You will want to take advantage of the 64-bit architecture, but it will still run 32-bit windows. I am running 64-bit XP (vista is still dog food) with 8GB of dual channel DDR2 ram, and I am amazed at how awesome this processor is.
Keep it cool, and you should be able to do some over clocking. I turned my ASUS auto overclocking off since I really dont need to over clock (& void the warranty).
I'm not going to dock any points for the cooler, since a better one is only really needed if your planning to overclock.
Pros fast, quad-core, runs cool, doesn't eat up power like P4
Cons most apps doesn't take advantage of quad-core YET.
Summary cheap alternative to the QX6700.
i take this over the QX6700 because this one runs cooler, cost a lot less, and has only 200mhz less power.
for me, QX6700 is basically overkill and i'll rather save up the extra 400 bucks for something else.
Pros Quad Core, 1066 FSB, fast at 2.4 GHz
Cons I found out this model has bugs, 129 of them, but they're minor.
Summary My dad got a Dell Inspiron 530 with the Intel Core 2 Quad Q6600 processor (Intel jingle!) back in 2007. The Desktop got very good marks in proccessing power but stunk in graphics. I just learned htis particular model has 129 minor bugs, but I haven't yet noticed.Oops! I meant to say Tower of Power not Power of Tower

Updated on Oct 13, 2009I have a Dell Dimension 4600 with a 2.4 GHz Pentium 4 w/512 KB L2 cahce and a 533 MHz FSB (the core is Northwood), but this Core 2 Quad (using the Kentsfield core) kills it in any application.
Pros Es el mejor procesador en el mundo no tiene nada q envidiarle a los procesadores extreme.. de verdad unico y no lo cambiare en MUCHO tiempo
Cons nada de verdad nada
Summary LO MEJORRR
Pros very fast, overclockable , managed to reach 3.0ghz with stock cooling,mulitasking is deam come true. cant get it to run at full trottel ,am happy i made a right decision !
Cons nothing till now..........
Summary its a quadcore with 8mb L2cache, can handle all ur tasks with great ease,my system doesnt reach 100% cpu utility ever, have over clocked it to 3 Ghz with stock cooling and FSB 1333, and still runs silent !
enjying every bit
