Summary: I didn’t read any review about this processor when I brought it 8 months ago, never though that cooling was a problem since I’ve been with INTEL CPUs since pII, and so on. Never like to overclock my CPU since I usually just use stock cooling sink, plus doesn’t make much of difference if you don’t...
Pros: fast, speed ok
Cons: slow down after 8 months of used, power supply was fried in 7 months, not sure if it has to do with this CPU
Summary: Intel D 930 rocks. It is based on 65nm manufacturing and the heat from the CPU is low compared with D 8xx series. When I used this CPU in Abit AW8-MAX with Scythe Ninja SCNJ-1000P cooler (the included cooler is loud), the temperature is mostly below 40C (idle temp is below 35C).
Cons: Core 2 Duo (Codename Conroe) makes this chip obsolete.. EIST is supported only from C1 stepping..
Summary: I used the Pentium D930 as a temporary processor in a Abit Aw8-max until I was able to get my hands on a D950. I was satisfied with the results and will be building another system so that I can use it again. The D series rocks.
Summary: I have been a long-time fan of Intel processors for home-built computers. In well over a decade, I have never had any trouble with an Intel processors. (I can't say the same for other processor manufacturers!
Pros: Great Intel Quality and Reliability, Complete Package with Cooling Fan, Excellent Instructions
Cons: Pricey Compared to Competition, but well worth it!
Summary: Let's just cut to the chase--I've got this installed on an ECS P4M800 PRO motherboard inside an Antec Sonata II case. The temperature at idle is 60C. If I let the stock fan go full blast (3000RPM+++), it idles at 48C+. And that is one noisy fan.

Summary: If you want to go dual core then this is one of the best price/performance you can get right now since AMD dual core processors are priced higher. While a single core may give you higher performance for the same price for single applications, a dual core processor is better at running multiple...
Summary: Ask 9 out of 10 people who have purchased this processor and the first thing that they will say is that it does run hot 60C or so at 100% duty cycle. If yours does there are two areas to check, the mounting of the cooling fan sink to the motherboard, often the mounting pegs will pull free causing...
Pros: Lightning fast running x64
Cons: It does run hot Intel could have done better with the CPU conections and the mounting of the cooling fan.
Summary: Just replaced Pentium 830 with this one (did not cost me anything, otherwise would be waste of money). Running it on Asus P5wd2-e with no problem, overclocked 20% with stock cooling. Successfully ran Battlefield 2 server and client together, applying one core to each - no lag, smooth.
Summary: the price is only a couple of dollars higher than the pentium d 920 when I purchase it. It is relatively easier to overclock than the 8XX series, mainly due to its 65 nm design (as opposed to 90 nm in the 8XX).
