Summary: I was successful in getting a stable overclock of 3.5GHz in which it passed 24hrs of Prime95 testing. I probably could have gotten it to go faster, but have a low end motherboard with limited overclocking capabilities (ASUS P5GC-MX/1333)
Summary: I installed this processor in a PC I built 1.5 years ago. It's a great comprimise of price and perfomance. It's not the fastest, but it is stable and reliable. Has never overheated. I do primarily gaming (online),video editing, and file converting. Recommended for mid level PCs.
Summary: I bought this processor to replace an E5300 in my HP. I bought it new for the same price I bought a used Athlon 64 x2. This runs much smoother than the Athlon (Athlon runs hotter because of smaller heatsink fan atm) I bought, and I didn't even replace the heatsink fan!
Summary: very good, on time, iteim as discribe, well wrapped great communicater. aplus aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa
