Summary: Got this to upgrade an old Dell 210L, it arrived quickly, in perfect shape, dropped it in, and works like a champ. Running windows 8.1 32bit, windows 10 tech preview 32bit, and Gnome-Ubuntu 64bit, passes memtest86 flawlessly. I also upgraded the cpu cooler to Dell's copper heatpipe model that fit this PC, to eliminate cpu fan kickup. With this in place, it runs smooth and quiet.
Summary: I bought this Intel processor to replace an old one that has burned out on me. The new processor worked flawlessly and I got it a price that was much better than what I would have paid for it at Staples!
Summary: Processor did not work, I guess I got what I paid for. Now I have 2 processors that don't work. The original 4 core and now this 2 core. I will go to a store to get the processor, this way I know it will work. Don't by electronic components over the internet is what I learned.
Was Great deal and product works perfectly I am very satisified

Summary: This was a great deal and was handled very well from start to finish of placing the order. I wanted to update my CPU and this was a nice unit even though used works perfectly and no problems,I have had no problems at all with this unit.
Summary: I have new pc, but also Im using old one with celereon D 336 - 2.8ghz. Im still using it becouse old canon scaner and samsung printer which are still pretty good, but they have xp drivers. I have 1gb of ram, and very good ATI gpu, with 500mb ddr 2, but cpu was just to slow, he couldnt do the job anymore. I purchase this intel pentium 4 , and man its just great, much faster, no freezes anymore.
Summary: Used this processor to build-up a computer for my girlfriend. Her old computer was super slow. New motherboard, more RAM, and had really add some super cooling for the processor. Results was a super bad to the bone computer with lightning fast speed! I would recommend this processor for anyone with the proper motherboard.
Summary: I bought the Pentium 4 650 3.4GHz Processor because it was the fastest chipset rated for my motherboard. I was running a centrino 1.8GHz...the slowest rated CPU. This increase in speed was Phenominal. I never changed internal parts on a computer before but after reviewing the information from the intel website where I looked up the information on my intel motherboards, it was a snap. five minutes tops and I went from ultra slow to blazing speed.
