    and on pg 7, that comment about it being for the enthusiast segment..... i'm not so sure...... since if its basically just a higher FSB version, most enthusiasts will just take it way higher anyway

    More upgrade confusion..great if you have wads of cash. Not so great for Intel as most people don't.

    Best and most greatest selfish example of industry driven dribble I have ever seen. Pointless and further more petty baby steps towards getting the high stand. Nice.

    Can't really see the point of this CPU.

    Apart from neding a new chipset, what's the deal with a mere 5% performance increase for an additional 40% more power consumption.

    Given the impressive energy efficiency of the QX9650, I don't understand how so much extra power is drawn for the tiny boost in performance - what's going on?

    I think its important that you incorporate into your review on the qx9770 the following info I got from Intel support:

    Thank you for contacting Intel(R) Customer Support.

    The only cooling solution we recommend for this processor is the liquid based cooling. We can not guarantee performance nor reliability if an air cooling solution is used.
