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.
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.
