Shift your 3D gaming into high gear with radical, performance enhancing features that Intel designed to wow those living on the edge: larger cache and Intel® Smart Memory
Intel® Core™2 Extreme Processor Cooling Solution
We listen to our customers. Intel received overwhelming feedback from our customers that the previous Extreme Edition processor cooler needed improvement, so here's what we've done:
- Lighter by Design
- Innovative thermal chamber technology allows rapid heat transfer from the processor for a much lighter thermal solution & worry free shipping for pre-assembled PCs
- Easy to remove active fan for quick & easy cleaning
- Thermal Performance to Spare
- Designed to meet and exceed thermal performance needs for the Intel® Core™ 2 Extreme Edition processors under normal use conditions
- Provides additional airflow to motherboard components helping to achieve stable platform performance under heavy stress conditions
- Split Personalities
- Quiet Mode limits CPU fan acoustics to a maximum of 35 dBA minimizing
unwanted work or play distractions due to noise
- High Performance Mode allows the fan to operate at higher RPMs to provide maximum cooling capabilities
- Quiet Mode limits CPU fan acoustics to a maximum of 35 dBA minimizing unwanted work or play distractions due to noise
- Quad-Core Processing
Provides four independent execution cores in a single processor package. Four dedicated processing threads help operating systems and applications deliver additional performance, so end users can experience better multitasking and multi-threaded performance across many types of applications and workloads.
- Chipset Support
Intel® Express Chipsets offer an array of exciting capabilities including dual graphics and deliver an impressivelevel of performance for demanding users. Other third-party chipsets may support Intel Core 2 Extreme quad-core processors; contact your board manufacturer for compatibility.
- Intel® Wide Dynamic Execution
Improves execution speed and efficiency, delivering more instructions per clock cycle. Each core can complete up to four full instructions simultaneously.
- Intel® Smart Memory Access
Optimizes the use of the data bandwidth from the memory subsystem to accelerate out-of-order execution. A prediction mechanism reduces the time in-flight instructions have to wait for data. Pre-fetch algorithms move data from system memory into fast L2 cache in advance of execution. These functions keep the pipeline full, improving instruction throughput and performance. 45nm versions further improve this feature, with more efficient methods of loading and storing data in main memory.
- Intel® Advanced Smart Cache
Dynamically allocates the shared L2 cache to each processor core based on workload. This efficient, dual-core-optimized implementation increases the probability that each core can access data from fast L2 cache, significantly reducing latency to frequently used data and improving performance.
- Intel® HD Boost
Accelerates the execution of Streaming SIMD Extension (SSE) instructions to significantly improve the performance on a broad range of multimedia and compute intensive applications. The 128-bit SSE instructions are now issued at a throughput rate of one per clock cycle, effectively doubling their speed of execution on a per-clock basis over previous generation processors. 45nm versions include a new Super Shuffle Engine which improves existing SSE instructions while enabling significant gains on the latest SSE4 instruction set. SSE4-optimized applications, such as video editing and encoding in high-definition resolution, will see additional performance improvements.
- Intel® Virtualization Technology (Intel® VT)
Allows one hardware platform to function as multiple “virtual” platforms. Intel VT improves manageability, limits downtime, and maintains worker productivity by isolating computing activities into separate partitions.
- Intel® 64 Architecture
Allows the processor to access larger amounts of memory. With appropriate 64-bit hardware and software, platforms based on an Intel processor supporting Intel 64 architecture can allow the use of extended virtual and physical memory.
- Execute Disable Bit
Provides enhanced virus protection when deployed with a supported operating system and prevents the code from infecting the system. Memory can be marked as executable or non-executable, allowing the processor to raise an error to the operating system if malicious code attempts to run in non-executable memory.

Fantastic! Unprecedented! Cool! Kool product! Yes I like it! Overclocked is nice! U should get it too!
- Jul 14, 2008
Amazing and definitely not worth it!! It is blazing fast!! I got it up to 4.42 with overclocking and a 100 dollar third party (Zalman) fan. I can definitely say that a Core 2 Quad 9450 can achieve the same potential as this one, or at least very close and about $1100 less!! This is for the most serious video editing, not gaming although gaming does feel the power of this thing, not much of it really. You would do way better with a quad with 9600 gt's in sli than with this and only 1 top card like a 4870. Do yourself a favor and get the quad for now til the new intels come out. They will also be expensive, but by the time you need THEM they will be cheap. Vote is Q9450

This Processor is a beast it handles anything in it's way extreme peformance :) CON: it's expensive
