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.

Summary: I bought a refurbished Dell Optiplex 380 computer from another site that was very inexpensive, but came with a Pentium Dual Core processor at 2.6GHz. The service manual for the workstation indicated that a core 2 duo or core 2 quad processor was supported by the motherboard.
