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....
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 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!
Summary: I love building intel and Nvidia together no driver issues. You pay a little more but you don't have to keep getting drivers and it just works right out of the box. AMD builds tend to be a lot of extra work after the build to get everything stable.
Pros: This is a great processor for either a workstation computer or for someone who wants to be able to surf watch movies. You wont get enough power to smoothly use newer applications or games.
Cons: I have been working with my q8300 processor for years I love this processor for what I do. Windows Experience ranks that processor at a 7.2 out of 7.7 and recently when I built a six core amd build it only ranked a 7.4. This processor with E6500 only will give a windows experience of a 5.4 which ...
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.
Cons: With Win 7 64 bit it was really quirky, would get BSOD (blue screen of death) errors. Needs to warm up before u try to use it heavily. Put in a Core 2, and i was good to go. No more errors. Just get the more expensive core 2.
Summary: Why would they give it the same model number as a core 2 duo?
Pros: seemed to overclock well
Cons: I bought this to upgrade My HP desktop based on the information on HP's website that a E6500 would work on my motherboard, but it turns out only the E6*** series core 2 duos will work wouldn't evan post. I tried it on another 775 board but it gave me errors in windows
Summary: This product is overpriced. Newegg has either failed to leverage it's position as a top retailer to bargain for reasonable prices, or is over charging for this product. Coupled with poor shipping practices leaves a five star product at 3 stars.
Pros: Does what it's supposed to do, and does it well.
Cons: None. With the exception of Newegg shipping. Product arrived quickly but under-packaged. Which is strictly a Newegg problem, not a manufacturer problem. Newegg does not, and hasn't for quite some time now, ship products well.
