Recommended Posts

i want to buy a new cpu and it should be a quad core. whats better, Q9300 or Q8400? i would say its the Q9300, because it has more cache.

I'd say Phenom ( :O ) coz the q9300 despite being better than q8400 is quite costly and getting a phenom system with 890 series mobo would be a more future proof thing..

Staying on topic I say the Q9300 just because it's better tech all around and if you OC it will go higher on average than the Q8xxx series. Every Q8xxx I've gotten my hands on was a pita to get past 3ghz whereas the few Q9xxx I've had the pleasure to OC all hit 3.5+ with extreme ease.

Really? I go unstable just after 3,4 GHz on my Q9300. Might be my ram though.
