Didn't fit in my PC.... Why?
25 July 2013
Summary: When I bought this I made sure it was compatible with my (now) old PC. Intel's website said it was. Turned out after attempting to put it into my PC it was not compatible. Based off this review I wouldn't even take this review into consideration.... considering I don't know if it works or not.... Sorry.
Don't be fooled by the photograph. No fan. NOT boxed version.

Summary: Haven't fired up the CPU yet because I was stupid and only looked at the photo and thought I was getting the boxed CPU with fan. Instead I got an envelope with the CPU on foam inside a small plastic case. I ordered a CPU cooler so hopefully all ends up well.
Summary: This processor shipped quickly, as always from Amazon, and works just fine. I am using it in a simple desk top application for email, web browsing, on-line applications, etc. Nothing that requires extreme performance. It works great for those requirements and the price/performance is right in line for my needs on this machine.
Summary: This is a good basic 775 pin processor. If you have a 775 pin motherboard (MOBO) with a slower processor or building a new machine, this makes a nice upgrade for the price. It works well with the cooler that comes with it unless you plan on over-clocking. In that case buy a better cooler! I have built more than five systems with ASUS PQ5 Pro MOBO's; two of them using this processor and all are performing well. Please note, this may increase your computing power.
