Summary: I purchased this a couple months ago used and after trying it on two motherboards I started to worry it was dead, then after some research I found out that most often the problem will not be the processor but either the memory or the motherboard.
Summary: I remember I bought this chip 4 years ago when I built my first computer! Wow time flies. I'm way more advanced now than I ever have been. I still have this in the computer I'm using now. It's been an amazing processor!
Summary: This is a good little cpu for the price. i have it in my living room's htpc and it does the job. its basically the old core 2 duo 6300, both ran at 1.8 had the same cache and so forth. it you are looking to put a good but inexpensive computer together this is not a bad one to get.
