And i agree with you puddle jumper, people have taken a 9650 past 4.1Ghz, which people would struggle to do with a QX6850 which is the same spec with 65nm process. The only disadv for 45nm is less posible vcore voltage, but 1.4v Max is stil safe. My Q9450 takes in more voltage than my PD (1.28 vs 1.20), and is still happy.
