Are socket 775 chips still available?

Recommended Posts

This account sucks and is pretty transparent in it's bait-and-switch suckiness. I am however grateful that people jumped on board to offer not just help, but potential hardware.

Nothing at umart so I figure they've been superseded?

 

about 8 years ago

along with since then 1156,1155,1150

we are now on 1151 of which there has been a number of revisions incompatible with previous models

...or post a Wanted To Buy around here, perhaps. Never know your luck...

 

Else any particular reason you need one? Might be easier/cheaper to upgrade to a lter CPU 'n mobo.

I've got lots of dual core 775 sitting on my work desk from gutted machines scrapped at work, most are the lower end variety. Some are celerons.

hm, so old to ask for that chips. How about latest chip, you can think about it instead of finding this old chip

 

This is the last desktop socket 775 (Core 2) - Q9650. Get the Q9550 if you can't get one

I am ignoring the QX chips here as they are rare as hen's teeth.

Problem with LGA775 is that the high end ones still worth having cost too much on the used market.

Most Core2s will overclock at least to the next 33 MHz FSB boundary and generally you can bump the multiplier down as well.

 

So it can be worthwhile getting a midrange quad and flogging the arse off it - just note that you need to be running the thing about 20% faster than a 1st gen i7 just to be about par, so a Core2Quad @ 3.2-3.6 GHz sounds cool but won't exactly set the world on fire.

so start with a legit related question to the forum then swap to spam good one...

Evolution of the spammer. 2 years ago they were blatantly obvious due to no av and nonstandard font, with junk link embedded in OP.

 

Next up, user with av and use the default font.

 

Then, question only that sounds half legit, with second new user coming along 3 days later with junk links.

 

And now this.
