    Q9650 @ 3.4 GHz

    I had a PC with that processor until an year ago. It's one of the best Intel CPUs of its age. Its stock speed is 2.83 GHz but I used to have mine @ 3.33/3.39 GHz on air. I don't remember what voltage setting I used, but I remember that I had to push it up! My motherboard was an ASUS P5B.
