Default Q9400S & Q8200S: Intel's 65W Quad-Cores

The benefits of a low-TDP processor are obvious, but a usual downside is also obvious: low clock speeds. Intel's changing that thinking with their Core 2 Quad "S" series, which includes the Q9550S, Q9400S and also the Q8200S. Compared to their non-"S" variants, they draw less power and run cooler, all while retaining the performance they've become known for.

You can read the full review here and discuss them here.
Intel Core i7-3960X, GIGABYTE G1.Assassin 2, Kingston 16GB DDR3-2133, NVIDIA GeForce GTX 770 2GB
Kingston HyperX 3K 240GB SSD (OS, Apps), WD VR 1TB (Games), Corsair 1000HX, Corsair H70 Cooler
Corsair 800D, Dell 2408WFP 24", ASUS Xonar Essence STX, Gentoo (KDE 4.11. 3.12 Kernel)
