Well it's the fastest CPU that motherboard can hold! And yeah, I know, it's old, but hey, it still works.

I do have another motherboard, memory modules and power supply lying around. I'm considering buying something like a Q9550 to put in my rig and build another rig with my E8400 and my spare parts. The problem is, I find it a bit a waste to put a E8400 in a "I have close to nothing to do" rig. And then, building a new rig will put me 500$ back (if I buy a Q9550 + video card) vs maybe 20$ for a new fan. And saving 480$ is always great... at least, for some!
