Summary: At 3.5ghz the 7200 in everest cpu zlib is just as powerful as the i5 760 2cores enabled at 4ghz! may be because i'm using the h55m board instead of the p55 board. The i5 clocks easier with less vcore and of course 4cores enabled the core2 is no match!
Pros: These are good cpu's, ran an e7200 about 2yr's!Had it on msi p35 board with 2 gig's corsair ddr2 800, cpu would do 4ghz and ram 1100 mhz plus!Most the time cpu was at 3.5ghz, and according to everest clock for clock was better than my i5 760 that i have now!
Summary: just keep in mind the upgrade potential if buying this in conjunction with a new motherboard. there are bunches of boards that can upgrade from this processor and go get the quad core!!
Pros: i love this processor. i'm definitely behind on getting the latest and greatest, but this is one fast processor! Being on a budget, and to see a nearly 200 dollar difference for just 1 MB cache more and a lower internal frequency, i came back to the e7600.
Summary: Product not as shown. I do not recommend buying from them. They should not show retail box if that's not what they are selling. All I received is the processor, which appears to be working, but this did not include a fan....not satisfied.
came as described the seller was nice enough to respond to my questions waited a bit ...
