Still relevant after SIX years.

  • Summary: I bought this processor for a build I completed in 2008. I have overclocked it to a very stable 3.8Ghz. Under heavy load, temperatures never exceed 60C with the STOCK fan. With a Geforce 650ti boost I have played all current games at maximum or nearly maximum settings. I paid around 180 for this brand new in 2008. It is still going strong and I wonder if it will ever stop working. I am looking to upgrade, but only because I feel like having something new and shiny.

Not much different

  • Summary: Compared to old CPU (E6500, oc to 3.4GHz, 2meg cache), this CPU (oc to 3.4GHz) is not much different in CPU speed (both got WEI=6.7). The difference is only in memory speed due to a higher bus speed of 383MHz and score 7.0 on WEI (old one - 333MHz, WEI= 6.7). Oh, it runs hotter than my old CPU due to more caches and I can hear the fan whirling now when playing games (not hearing on old one). Well, it's only $19, so what can I say!

Very good performance for the price. Works perfectly for my needs.

  • Summary: First - I am not a gamer. I bought the Intel E8400 to replace an older E2220. In my opinion the Core 2 Duo processors are very capable of handling day-to-day computing needs. There was a very noticeable response increase over the E2220. I also have an E8500 and the E8400 is very close in performance.

  • Summary: This worked well with my second hand ThinkCentre MT-M-7298-Q3U that I only paid $119. for off lease. The processor was a good deal too from the seller making this PC a good deal for me.

  • Summary: Got this to upgrade an old Pentium D 805 machine and was blown away by how much faster this CPU is. I can now do HD videos without a hiccup and scans run faster as well. Would buy again.
