Summary: perfect arrived on time and everything was in order.Installed it and ran my computer and all was well. the only worrisome thing is that the fan runs on full throttle all the time maybe due to the thermal paste but i did a heat test and found no problems on max load.
Summary: I just bought this cpu in 2015 and it still runs strong, I already had a heatsync but intel's works just as well. I put this in an old emachines w3629 along with 4gb ddr2 ram and a radeon 6450 and it works well.
Ok, but not what was expected. Purchase description not accurate.

Summary: I expected to get the processor along with the heatsink and fan. I assumed this was all there. It did not seem this item was new. It was not packed in an original Intel box. Just a chip wrapped in bubble wrap and placed in a box. Not what I expected.
Summary: I purchased this CPU because I had a good motherboard laying around with a LGA775 socket. This Dual Core Intel CPU features a 3 MB Cache memory and clocks at 2.93 GHz. I installed it into a media center build and this is a fast CPU. It runs cool (for an Intel chip) and it is easy to overclock.
Summary: Purchased this as an upgrade for an old ECS 945-GCT-M v3.0 mainboard. Old processor was a Pentium IV-HT. Had to flash the bios, but this new dual core runs at the same clock, but performs twice as fast due to dual core and larger cache. Highly recommended affordable upgrade.
Summary: Purchased this processor to upgrade a QNAP 509. Installed easily and doubled the performance of NAS. I also installed a SilverStone low profile fan and the system has been running as expected.
