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.

  • Summary: great price just hope i do not have to return and get one that is really 2.6 hoping it is a mother board error.
  • Pros: Works installed easy and seems to be faster than my 3.2 celeron D.
  • Cons: My mother board and easytune6 both sat it is running at 1.7Ghz? windows XP says it is a 2.6Ghz? I am not too sure which one to believe.

So far so good

  • Summary: Wanted to upgrade from a E2140 give my system a little more speed. I don't game like I use to. With the state of pc gaming I actually own a console now. I figured this will at least give me enough speed for any decent future pc titles that aren't re-hashes of old.
  • Pros: Faster than the E2140 that I had. One more meg of cache. The mobo I have isn't worth trying to overclock, so if your into that this proc could have a better rating. Not that it's bad, but it isn't spectacular either unless your coming from an old P4.
  • Cons: I think this proc could be a little cheaper than the $73 I paid. 775 is a dead spec. Don't think its worth spending the $150 or more for the better procs and quad cores. I would hope that Intel does lower the price on the E8000 and quads to $99 some day, but you know they will high ball the consu...

Warning f672cr mobo owners (ie. acer 1610)

bob, Amazon
7 January 2010
  • Summary: This chip does not replace the stock E2140. Bus speed match. Socket match. Is in Acer's compatibility list, but NOT COMPATIBLE. Upgrading bios didn't work. Intel tech support said they didn't know, ask Acer. Acer said, "Sorry for the inconvenience." Additional commentary unpublishable.

  • Summary: Ein schneller, leiser Prozessor der auch noch Strom spart. Genau das was ich von Intel erwarte! Jeden mit einem kleinen Geldbeutel kann ich diese CPU ans Herz legen. Wer auch seinem Mainboard ein Sockel 750 hat kann sich freuen! Dann geht er nämlich super!
