Great low end CPU!
6 September 2013
Summary: This is a great (best?) 800mb front side bus processor! It's faster than any Pentium D, even those with faster clock ratings. It uses much less power,thereby saving you money. It also runs much cooler than any Pentium D, and works great with stock cooling. If you have a socket 775, 800mb fsb motherboard, this is the cpu for you!
Upgraded processor allowed use of newer software application

Summary: I got this video processing package and it would not install on my machine with Windows XP on it. I'm fond of the machine because I do all my audio music management on it - iTunes, CD Cassette, and Vinyl transfers using the hardware on that computer. And when I got a VCR to USB transfer dongle it needed a Dual Core processor in order to run the new video processing software. Research and a little time made this one a whopping success.
Summary: This was a great processor. However the fan mounting simulated srews were terribly designed and I used my old fan. This was Intels lack of thinking though. Seller of this product was on time and the product works great.
Summary: The wrong CPU was shipped the first time. There is no label on the packaging to confirm which CPU, you get so you must read the tiny lettering of the label on the CPU. I contacted them and they quickly shipped the correct one with a shipping label for prepaid shipping of the old one back to them. Customer service was quick, Friendly and efficient. The E5800 was a good upgrade to replace the old E2140 CPU that I have had for 7 years.
Summary: I bought this to replace a tired 1.8ghz core 2 duo. I was limited by the 800mhz front side bus, but this cpu has been a real contender. It sees daily use from simple browsing to medium gaming. The is a great midrange cpu and a nice upgrade if you are on the socket 775 platform or want to build a light gaming rig on a budget.
Summary: I have an old socket 775 motherboard, (DFI DKP35T2RS)left since I've moved on to the newer sockets. However I picked up an e5800 for a good price and it's been fun to put life back into the old computer. It's about the same as running a core2duo like an e8500, but it actually runs cooler because there's less cache to heat up. But 1mb cache per core is pretty good, even today. It's easy to get this CPU to over 4ghz. It has a clock multiplier of 16x.
Summary: Great Processor for the value, ill just recommend it for home use, definitely not for mid-hardcore gaming, if you need a PC that just going be checking emails,documents,music and low graphic games then it would be just perfect for you i just build it for a home office and runs awesome, but if you think that you're going to use it for more than that them ill would suggest you a Core 2 Duo or a Core 2 Quad.
Summary: it was easy to install and works great. this processor is very power efficient compared to the power hungry P4 prescott 630 3Ghz i previously used. it makes multitasking a lot more faster. no problems with it so far.
