Good way to extend the life of old desktop, good CPU in its day
2 May 2012
Summary: Installing this processor doubled my desktop's PassMark score and reduced CPU heat dissipation by a third compared to the Pentium D 805. With the cost below $35 it made sense for me to extend the life of the old desktop rather than throwing it away since it had a low end video board and 4 GB RAM in it already. The BIOS automatically accepted the processor and the mechanical installation is straightforward. There is lots of guidance on the net for the procedure.
Well worth it if you have a need for an older CPU.

Summary: I give it a 4/5 rating because it is good at being a 2.2g processor. The truth is it's old and hasn't been mainstream for some time, and unless you have a specific niche for this CPU it would be best to look at more current offerings. This is a decent CPU for everyday use but it would be a big step up for users who have have a Celeron or single core CPU and want more power without buying a new computer.
Summary: Received a GO stepping that runs cooler than e4300 I have overclocked. Hits 3.2Ghz easily. High multiplier helps with budget boards. This is a very economic and stable processor. If you do not need VT or the higher cache of higher end Intel dual core this is a very good chip for overclocking.
Pros: Overclock to 3.2Ghz, cooler running than other e4xxx, high multiplier
Very good Core2 Duo processor with helpful feature, much suitable for general users.

Excerpt: BACKGROUND INFORMATION Processor can be considered as the most important part of a computer. It is an electronic circuit that allows the computer to execute various computer programs. It is also known as central processing unit (CPU).Though in modern days, the size of processors has been reduced significantly, but it used to be a larger and bulky unit consists of electrical circuits and wires stored inside a big hall/room to operate an old day's PC.
Excerpt: "...in memory. In modern days, Intel is one of the main resource and provider of different types of processors to the consumers. Intel is an USA based semiconductor company widely renowned for manufacturing different types of computer peripherals such as processors, motherboards, network cards etc. ==INTRODUCTION OF THE PRODUCT== The core 2 duo is one of the latest technologies in the field of computer processors. It consists of two cores, allows ...
Pros: High FSB, large L2 cache memory, 64 bit architecture, operates in low voltage .
Cons: Does not support Hyper - threading technology, very poor L1 cache memory .
Summary: Este procesador tiene un buen desempeño en juegos,musica,video,etc.....aunque lo mejor de este procesador no es su rendimiento en si que tambien sino su precio y su bajo consumo y lo frescos que son estos micros en cuanto a temperatura. Tambien es muy recomendable para ordenadores de empresa y usuarios poco exigentes ya que es un micro barato y con un buen rendimiento en casi todos los programas,este procesador es unos de los mejores en su gama de calidad/precio...
Pros: precio,consumo,baja temperatura del micro,buen OC
Summary: e4500 si può definire come il dual core di base perchè rispetto ai e2xxx non si basa su architettura pentium. Tenendo conto che un e2180 equivale a tre volte la potenza di un p4 2.8 single core, l' e4500 è un otttimo dual core. Buono per i giochi, consiglio di abbinarlo ad una scheda video di fascia media come la ati 3870 e nvidia 8800gt e delle belle ram pc6400 con cas 4-4-4-12 come le Corsair, Geil, Tema group o A-data.
Pros: Ottime prestazioni per l'ufficio, il video, i giochi; Ottimi margini di overclock
