Summary: Pros: works well. It's pretty fast even without overclocking. Cons: I can't mount the fan on my dell vostro. Finally I use my old fan and put the gel of new fan on the old one with a small knife.
Summary: Overclocked to 3.2ghz with stock heatsink and fan. Didn't even have to change the voltages yet but as soon as i get my cooler master 212 ill be overclocking to 4ghz. Stable at 4.0ghz and doesn't break 50C
Summary: Processor works and is the unit advertised. Was very low cost!!! Cons 1. Had scuff marks on it took some pictures. Did not appear to be new. 2. Shipped from east cost to east cost took too long. See log and notice Thanksgiving day happened while USPS had the item.
Summary: In the past I've usually gone with AMD for desktops, but some of these recent Intel chips are very competitive.
Pros: Excellent performance for the price. 2MB L2 cache doesn't seem to be much of a hindrance. Running at 3.24GHz (240 * 13.5) on a Gigabyte GA-EP43-UD3L at stock voltages with included Intel cooler, 100% solid in mprime(Prime95) & memtest86+ overnight. Reaches 65C on one core, 59C on the other at thi...
Summary: Not a "Core2", older CPU with less cache, but I had to bid against a cheap "name brand" system using the same CPU. On XP Pro, 2 GIG RAM, it'll run all your Office / Internet apps w/out hesitation.
Pros: Perfromance per price ratio makes this chip a very good buy. Runs as cool as newer Core 2's
