Absolute Junk, do NOT buy.
Strengths: First one was D.O.A. Second one runs only at default speed, but only with voltage cranked up to 1.276 volts.
Weakness: will NOT overclock at all. Buy a high-end dual core. These will overclock to insane speeds.
Way overpriced. Buy an i7 920 CPU if you want a good overclockable quad-core CPU. Buy a top of the line dual core if you are a gamer and want to overclock for insane frame rates on all the current top-rated games.

Strengths: Easy install
Highest speed Quadcore processor, and overclocks well. Using on a Shuttle SP335P2V2 intel p35 chipset Core 2 Duo bare system. Works well as a gaming processor, would highly recommend to anyone.
