Great Processor

Seth Mykut, Amazon

  • Summary: This processor gave new life to my aging compaq and runs (in my opinion) easily as well as one of the new i3 processors. You cant beat the price on this processor new either. Works great!

Good

  • 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. So after reading on the Intel support that not all memory and processors work together(800mhz processor 1333mhz memory might not work) I purchased an 800mhz memory stick and another board(the third).

  • 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!

C2D 4300 smokes!

M. Thompson, Amazon
23 November 2008
  • Summary: Don't know how Intel found the magic recipe, but this processor is great. Its running in a Gig P965-ds3 board, which is a great overclocking board. I have it at a FSB of 333 MHz, bought come Corsair PC-5400 memory, and the stock cooler. This runs the system at 3 GB, just amazing. Its cool, great benchmarks, totally stable. Buy it, you won't regret it.

Great value in a processor. Unbelivable price to...

  • Summary: This chip is phenomenal. I have mine overclocked to 2.8ghz easily on stock voltage (8x multiplier, 333FSB) using some cheap DDR2 ram I purchased. Using an asus P5N32-SLI Plus for a motherboard. I would recommend researching the motherboard extensively, some motherboards will take a "BSEL" pin mod which will make over clocking much easier on an inexpensive motherboard (it fools the system into believing that the front side bus speed is much higher).
  • Pros: Good out of box performance. Exceptional overclocking ability. BSEL mod for cheap performance on some non-overclocking motherboards. Relatively low heat processor.
  • Cons: 2mb of cache vs. the 4mb of the 6 series. Need a motherboard dedicated to over clocking to get the most out of this chip. Batch to batch variation on how high it can be overclocked.

Great Intel C2D CPU

  • Summary: I have bought for over 1 month , it's easy install and setup,and it runs fast and stably , I haven't overlock yet because it's already fast enough, if you use you PC for browsing internet and watching movie and playing mid-level games, I strongly suggest you to choose E4300.
  • Pros: fast speed,duo core,easy overlock
  • Cons: should come with a better cpu fan

Great performance and value

xiaowei, PriceGrabber

  • Summary: The E4300 is a great CPU for overclockers. With the stock heat sink / fan, I can get 3GHz (333MHz * 9) with only 1.35V vCore. It's multiplier is 9 (vs. E6300's 8) so you don't have to use super high FSB for overclocking. Generally speaking, Core 2 Dual is awesome. You may already know, 1MHz in C2D is not the same as 1MHz in, say, P4. A 3GHz C2D beats 3GHz P4 by a great margin, while generating less heat. Also, as a bonus, Vista is more efficient utilizing C2D than XP.
  • Pros: highly overclockable
  • Cons: none
