Intel Core 2 Quad 9300 Processor Review - 45nm Yorkfield
5 Star Review  legitreviews.com - Dec 31, 1969

The Intel Core 2 Quad Q9300 processor is the entry level 45nm quad-core processor from Intel, but that doesn't mean it doesn't perform well! This 45nm quad-core 'Yorkfield' processor is operates at 2.50 GHz with a 1333MHz FSB and 6MB L2 cache. The Intel Core 2 Quad Q9300 processor should be a decent overclocker as it has a 7.5 multiplier. Just how high can you get the FSB is the question...

Intel Core 2 Quad Q9300
3 Star Review  productwiki.com - Sep 8, 2011

The Intel Core 2 Quad Q9300 is one of Intels new generation of quad core processors that is energy efficient and powerful. The Q9300 codenamed "Yorkfield", features two 3 MB of L2 cache which gives a total of 6 MB of L2 cache, a core clock speed of 2.50 GHz, and a front side bus of 1333MHz. The CPU is manufactured on a 45nm die and contains 4 processor cores. Designed to deliver a high power efficiency, it has a Thermal Design Power of 95W. For the full report, refer to Intel Core 2 Quad. Features Core Clock Speed: 2.50GHz L2-cache: 2 x 3072KB Front Side Bus: 1333MHz Thermal Design Power: 95W Socket: LGA 775 Release Date: March 10, 2008 Price: $266 ... PROS: (1) Low voltage usage even at maximum possible overclock speeds (2) Receptive to overclocking, and stable at around 3200MHz (3) Lower power consumption than comparable AMD models (4) Faster performance on demanding tasks than some slower quad-core processors ... CONS: (1) Stock cooler does not effectively cool at overclocked speeds, tends to heat up (2) More expensive than many Core 2 duo models (3) L2 cache capacity is lower than comparably priced processors

Blazing fast speed, an amazing value!
5 Star Review   By member predatorz6 - Dec 29, 2008   

Strengths: Powerful 4 core proc, fast speed, 64-bit capability, overclocks fairly well, new 45nm, and runs cool too!

Weakness: You will most likely need a new motherboard

I bought this processor for my new PC build this past summer, it has been about 4 months, and I love it! It powers through video-editing, games, movies, and music all in HD. Although I don't have a 64-bit OS currently, it certainly supports the technology, and I hope to upgrade to 64-bit Vista soon. (Works fine on my current laptop) This proc also overclocks fairly well; I'm running it at 2.8GHz, but I know a lot that are currently at 3+... Overall, it's a great processor for the value, and I would certainly go back and buy it again.

Intel Core 2 Quad Q9300 2.5GHz 13333FSB
5 Star Review   By member IbarraYJ - Jun 2, 2008   

Strengths: Quad Core! 1333FSB!

Weakness: None that I can think of.

For the last couple years now Intel has been kicking AMD around the block and the Intel Core 2 Quad Q9300 is no exception. With 1333FSB at 2.5GHz this processor is a addition to any system, unless you want to upgrade to its big brother the EE Core 2 Quad and pay the big bucks. My only gripe with this processor is when I dropped it inside my ASUS P5E the Mobo didn't automatically detect all the proper configurations and I needed to update the BIOS.
