Summary: I purchased two of these processors for two separate projects and I am extremely happy with both. One was built into a home server using WHS 2011 OEM software and it works great. The other is a security video camera system, using Vista 32 bit operating system, that records video 24/7 outside of my home. It also is a workhorse and without any problems. This CPU features 2.93 GHz clock speed with dual cores and has a 2 MB cache for fast operation.
Summary: I used this processor to upgrade an Acer PC I had previously rebuilt with a new motherboard, memory and hard disk. Initially, I re-used the old (2005) Celeron D 3.06GHz processor primarily because it was capable of Windows 7 64-bit operation but I realized after a few months of use that this old-style (256K L2 cache/533Mhz FSB) Celeron just wasn't going to do the job.
Summary: I installed this processor on my mo board and works great and the cooling fan keeps it cool. The processor works good on XP, vista and win 7 and even on 2000. Have not over clocked it realy dont need to works just fine at normal settings. I recomend this one.
Summary: The Intel Dual Core processors are fast and flexible. I build and repair a lot of older computers and to take an older one and bring it to life with one of these dual core 2.93 processors makes it a lot of fun for me. This was a good product at a fair price on eBay.
Summary: Super stable at 300 Mhz FSB, and runs cool. Absolutely the best bang for your buck. Here's my setup: Gigabyte GA-ep43-UD3L mobo, 4 gigs Kingston HyperX 800 Mhz DDR2 RAM, Radeon 500 meg PCi-E video card, Suntech 680-watt PS, Intel 6500 CPU. I use it in a Multimedia system, and it runs all day at 300 Mhz FSB without ever hanging up. Couple it to a nice big HDTV LCD monitor, and a 5.1 or 7.1 channel sound system, and you might never come out of your man-cave.
Summary: I do like the fact of it being a dual processor. I was building a new system from scratch and found almost everything I needed on ebay. I just wish there was a dual core processor that was 3 or more gigs for each processor and not 3 gigs split between the two. But all in all I am happy..
Summary: How can you argue with a fair price, low or free shipping costs and it's NEW in the box. Easy to follow installation instructions; I had the unit installed and operating in about 10 minutes! The included fan/heatsink is adequate, but I'd like something with a bit more surface, the fan is quiet and seems to have an adequate air flow to keep the CPU within a comfortable operating-temperature range.
Summary: Bot this hoping to upgrade a Dell 620SFF, no dice and no clear info anywhere re:whether it would work with 960 mobo (in 960SFF case). It does. Finally got OG261D wi DW017 htsnk and bingo! it works. BTW tried it first in 755SFF,no go in 620 case. Runs much cooler that Pentium D 805 but I'm not a gamer.
