Summary: From the shipping package too my computer up and running without errors or Blue Screens was lass than 15 minutes. Was concerned about this being a Pull,but they said Tested, and it proved to be a great value.
It was and is still one of the BEST socket 775 dual cores EVER MADE...

Summary: This lil guy is a TROOPER.. and I'm told when paired with a decent ASUS / high-end motherboard, it is easily overclockable up to 3.5-4 ghz if you have a robust enough heatsink / fan on it. With water cooling? Perhaps even better. I'm not currently using it, but I MIGHT reassign it to a small bitcoin mining machine. We shall see...
Summary: I thought I new about how to put together computers. I know better now. The motherboard that I had bought this for ended up being bricked by it. Was my fault though. Further research on the net said that happens with that motherboard. I was even sadder to find out that the second motherboard that I bought wouldn't work either. Gave up. Came back three months later. To discover that I hadn't seated the memory properly. Now everything works great.
Summary: With a windows rating of 6.6 out of 7.9 this item is a good buy if you are looking for a cheaper processor with a lot of power for it's class. Though the stock heat-sink might not fit all mother boards.
Summary: A thunder storm fried my motherboard and the cpu. I went from a celeron to a pentium processor and the difference was noticeable, how ever the improvement also was due to an upgraded motherboard.
Summary: OK, just so you know, when you order this, it does NOT come with the thermal paste. You have to buy that seperately. They need to add that somewhere in the description. Without the thermal paste, you can not play gmaes like LoL or CSS or Programs that use alot of RAM on this processor. It will last about 30 minutes and then your computer will shut itself down. I had to order some thermal paste because they dont send it like Intel does with their usual processors.
Great processor, esp. when matched to a Pent. 4 Board.

Summary: I used this processor on the motherboard I purchased from the same vendor (see other review) and it has worked great! It was easy to install, works fast as lightening, and works smoothly with Windows 7 with no problems. Be patient during initial setup, as this process is a little time consuming, but well worth it. Fantastic upgrade for older slower units without having to buy a completely new system.
Not a bad processor if you're stuck with a 775 socket.

Summary: For the value this 775 is good.. especially compared to other 775s that are only marginally better but quite a bit more expensive. I had to buy a heat spreader as this one got pretty hot using the standard Intel fan. It still runs hotter than I would like but it's in safe operating ranges when running processor intensive applications such as games and 3d modeling software. I typically verify temps running SpeedFan and CoreTemp and at the hottest see temps around 47* ..
Summary: cambie mi viejo dual core E2180 por este E6700 y me ha ido de maravilla la tengo trabajando a 12x y 1.30v y corre cualquier cosa que le pongas sin dudar en los juegos como crysis2 es muy bueno acompañandolo con unas buenas memorias ram y una buena tarjeta de video sin tener que gastar tanto en un core 2 duo o en el muy bueno pero super caro quad core mi configuracion: Gigabyte Core 2 Quad/Intel P43/DDR2-1200/A&GbE/ATX Motherboard GA-P43-ES3G Intel Pentium Dual-Core...
