Pentium D 940 Dual Core Processor (3.2GHz, 4MB,...
24 September 2007
Summary: This is a good processor. It works as if your system has two processors. I did benchmark with Intel core 2 quad 2.4 Ghz. I was expecting that It will will have half of quad core speed. But it has only one third speed. Good purchase for the price.
Summary: I installed this processor in a compaq system the originally came with a celeron d 356. I primarily use this system for video conversion from dvd video to mp4 for psp using nero 7. I also use a system with an Athlon x2 3600, and a laptop with a core 2 duo t5200. This pentium d 940 beats them all, and runs cooler than a normal pentium 4. Idles at 28C and full load is 50C, using stock cooling in the compaq and only one exhaust fan on the case.
Pros: Simple upgrade, powerful video compression, runs cool.
Summary: I purchased this processor at the same time my friend bought a processor and mine is running like a champ. His has had problems non stop. I would recommend this processor to any one who doesnt want to run a dual core. You will get what you pay for. Thanks Price Grabber.
Pros: Everything about it. It stays cool it runs fast. What more can you ask for. Well maybe the 3.4 Ghz. HaHa!!
Cons: None, and ive been running it non stop for about three months. When its not taking a nap...
Summary: I upgraded to this CPU from a AMD 2800+. I can say, I notice increase speeds in everything from program application to game play. Easy to overclock, runs at around 113-118 - so doesn't overheat like many think. However, I heard that it does run hot (haven't experienced yet). I think this processor is great - perfect balance of price and speed. Recommended!!!
Pros: Cheap price, best deal for price range, huge 4mb L2 cache, Intel quality
Cons: Heat, runs very hot, not sure if its a TRUE dual-core
Summary: I do a lot of online gaming, and sometimes run 3 or 4 clients, as well as a browser and Trillian IM client, plus all the background apps, and i have not had any problems since. Thank you Intel for programming your processors to shut down when they overheat. The first time i installed this proc, i didn't get all of the little feet snapped in on the HSF, so it wouldn't boot due to the proc overheating. Took off HSF and re-installed it and its been working perfectly since.
Pros: Great proccesor. Fast, powerful number cruncher. Great for multitasking office work and for gaming.
Cons: Runs pretty hot with the stock fan. Also, stock fan is really loud. Stock HSF is a little hard to get on, just be careful, and no problem.
Summary: I install this pentium D 3.2gb cpu with asus p5wd2 premium motherboard, everything go smooth without problem. I try to overclock to 3.8gb, My computer working perfect without any overheating and install OS just take 15min, this pentium D 3.2 cpu is brilliant, I will recommend this cpu for other user.
Summary: I installed this processor on Gigabyte 8I945PLG motherboard. Easy installation was easy. I have been using it for last four months without a problem. I burn and played DVDs and CDs with no problem. I reinstalled OS several times without any problem. My computer never got stuck. I am not a gamer so I don't how it is with gaming. I recommend this processor for the price it selling now.
Pros: Dual Core with 3.2 GHz speed, Comes with heatsink and fan
Summary: Recently bought this CPU and an Intel motherboard as a combo at an electronics giant superstore. With the release of the speedier Conroe chips, the pricing for this CPU has made it quite the bargain compared to a year ago. Installation was a breeze, but I suspect that I would need to upgrade the included stock fan to do any decent overclocking. Nevertheless, I am glad I purchased this to replace my vintage P4 2.8 Northwood.
Summary: I use this processor with a ASUS P5P800 SE motherboard and it rocks. It installs the OS fast. I installed the WinXP 64bit and everything works great. Haven't tried overclocking though (dont need it at this speed.) I tried running the virus scanner and the disk defragmenter both at once and the processor stayed at 65%-70% usage. Plus I was able to surf the internet at the same time without any kind of slowness. That's cool.
Summary: I have mine installed in an Asus P5P800-SE motherboard. My original plan called for an overclock to 3.60. It was so easy to get it to 3.60 that I just kept going. At 3.90, heat becomes an issue even with the Zalman 9500 cooler. For me, this was to be a budget upgrade using some parts from my 3.0 Prescott. I used the drives, memory (Corsair XMS), 9500 cooler, 1 120mm 57cfm case fan and the Video card (AGP). I spent a total of $375 including tax and shipping.
Pros: Great overclocking ability to 3.80+ even with DDR400 Ram. Runs very cool with a Zalman 9500 Cooler
Cons: It takes a decent quality motherboard to bring out the best in this chip.
