E6850

Helen S., Newegg
3 December 2008
  • Summary: For the price and the overclock you can achieve on this cpu, it is well worth it.
  • Pros: I have this installed in the 790i ultra motherboard. Comes clocked at 3.0 ghz. and I have it clocked to 3.71 ghz. stable 24/7 on air using the core contact freezer cpu cooler. Tried it at 3.8 ghz. but BSOD. Idles 40 degrees celsius and load is 50 degrees celsius. Not bad for a 65 nm chip with a 7...
  • Cons: Can't think of any.

Definitely compares...

  • Summary: The E8500 is definitely nicer, but that's to be expected.
  • Pros: Stands up to the E8400 and might even be a better overclocker.
  • Cons: None apparent.

Chip is great.

Anonymous, Newegg
14 November 2008
  • Pros: Chip is great and got it on sale of NOV of '07. O/C'd to 3.4ghz on stock cooling. Was stable at 3.6 with stock cooling but wasn't too comfortable with temps. Great price at the time. Even better deal now for budget rigs.
  • Cons: None.

Intel does it again!

Rick L., Newegg
13 November 2008
  • Summary: Dont waste your money on a quad processor exspecially if your a gamer. Games aren't even accepting quad processors. So go with the speed and reasonable price on a high GHZ core 2 duo like this.
  • Pros: This processor is very fast at 3.0 ghz and the price has come down considerably. Intel makes better processors than anyone else Stays strong and will not let you down
  • Cons: NONE

Heres a trick

John D., Newegg
22 October 2008
  • Summary: Here's a trick for installing the stock clips on this heatsink. Pull the feet off and stick them into your motherboard. You know, the ones with the 2 clips on the bottom. Now line up the heat sink with the marrying parts to the pegs in the MB. Then just do one corner at a time.
  • Pros: I have the 6600 running for 2 years overclocked to 3.0 1333 FSB. This processor is so good I ran the original thermal grease until it got bad and dried up one me. The proc. ran on bad grease for about 6 months. I was a little lazy about it. Just re-applied the grease and the proc. is up and runni...
  • Cons: None. An incredibly stable and strong bull dog of a proc.
