These are great CPUs

Patricia S., Newegg

A Solid Performer

Danny J., Newegg

  • Pros: A nice low power processor that has worked out nicely in an XP-SP3 system and now in a Win7-SP1 64-bit system (that unleashes the full potential of this processor).

Great for HTPC

Anonymous, Newegg
24 April 2011
  • Summary: I barely need the CPU fan to run but I keep it set at a constant 40% so that it keeps nearby components cool.
  • Pros: Underclocked it to 2.6 GHz and was able to undervolt it to 1.04 volts (stock is 1.425) for a HTPC. Power consumption when under load (Intel burn test) dropped 37 watts.
  • Cons: Temperature sensors are wrong--they read below ambient at idle. The temps reported by the motherboard seem more realistic.

Outstanding CPU!

Michael H., Newegg
15 January 2011
  • Summary: I plan on upgrading away from this processor someday, but as of now this thing is rocking my world combined with my Radeon HD 5670 1GB DDR5. I only have 2GB of DDR3 @ 1333mhz running on windows 7 64-bit. So far... smooooooooth sailin.
  • Pros: I just finished building my computer today. I already can tell that this CPU is worlds better than the Pentium D 3.4ghz, and scoffs at the Core Duo. I haven't even overclocked it and I don't know if I ever will. Whats the use if it does the job as is?
  • Cons: It isn't cheap enough ( bless my sarcasm ) .
