Summary: Excellent upgrade for my old HP Slimline. Low power consumption model (S designation) was more expensive than a higher speed model but the efficiency & lower thermal (heat) output beat more speed.
Provides a nice performance gain over Duo-Core, LGA775 series processors.

Summary: I ordered this CPU to extend the life of my current gaming system which has an older Intel Duo-Core CPU. The Package I received was brand new and unopened and the CPU fired up first time and is running nicely @ 3.1MHZ with a slight Overclock.
Summary: I've upgraded my HP EX495 Server with this processor and it's made a big difference. Prior to the new processor the server was pretty laggy, in fact, I started to consider other options. This processor breathed new life into the server and it's now a snappy little machine.
Summary: I was going to just build a new PC, but this with a new video card works fast enough for me. I can encode a video,play a game and copy files from one drive to another , and not notice any lag.
