    They are compatible from a socket standpoint and the T6600 is actually a newer release which means it *should* work but I don't know for sure if the microcode is in the BIOS for the Qx9300.

    Microcode allows you to run a specific CPU on your motherboard. There are many different CPU's so sometimes they don't all have the microcode needed to work. The Extreme should work because it came out before yours (it's older, but faster). The motherboard should support anything your CPU or older, but I don't know for sure.

    in theory yes it supports it, but whether or not the bios supports it, asus north america never tested it because we have never brought in that CPU.

    the price of the cpu to performance ratio, you're better off selling your current notebook and buying a new one. you wont see any extreme gains. your gaming is depended more on the GPU
