Re: Is my Q9550 2.83GHZ/12MB L2cache
No, I have a 775 socket x3210 quad xeon, which is close to being a Q6600 except for multi. The Q9550 is a next gen @45NM processor , Have one too, both still have long legs......
Here is the build: Note:I have switched both X3210 and Q9550 and both run great.
Having a great motherboard and quality parts help much.
AC Freezer 7 Pro H/S/F
Xeon X3210 Quad (skt775)2.3 @3.6Ghz
Asus Rampage Formula/1 X 4 GB Gkill DDR2
Sapphire HD4890 1GB PCIe Graphics Card
2x36Gb WD Raptors Raid0[Win7Pro]
2x80Gb WD Spinners[Win8.1Pro/Win10 Build
OCZ 550W Fatality Modular PS
Antec SX1040 Performance Case
To tell you the truth, its fast in current terms and solid as a rock. I have since completed 2 new builds and to be honest, this old machine is almost as fast as new builds for anything but gaming, still good but cannot be maxed out in newer games.
Without knowing your hardware, a GPU upgrade might be a good addition until a new build is done.
