Summary: What other cpu can be ran at an almost 100% overclock for YEARS on stock cooling with zero problems?
Pros: I bought this chip when they first hit $70 on newegg years ago. From day one I overclocked it to 3ghz on stock cooling with plenty of thermal headroom to spare even during a hot day. This chip still runs strong in a rig I built for my mother to this day. I can not recommend it enough.
Summary: I know I'm comparing it to an older processor, so I guess it's probably a pro that the E2140 can do the same thing at 2.0 Ghz that a PD 840 at 3.2 Ghz can do and the E2140 also consume less power and runs way cooler while doing it.
Pros: It's a decent value, even cheaper now than when I bought it. Great budget cpu to get you going and upgrade later down ther road. I put this in a GIGABYTE GA-73VM-S2 and modestly overclocked it to 2.0 Ghz right away. It works great.
Cons: I know the E2140 is better, but I honestly can't tell any difference between this and my Pentium D 840 from 3 years ago. It just slightly surpasses the PD in the PC mark tests I did. But it only did that when overclocked to 2.0 Ghz. Don't get me wrong I still like it. I guess this isn't a con whe...
Summary: this is great for casual gaming, email, or anything. It is also fast enough for Vista.
Pros: I was a little skepical buying a pentium dual core with such a low clock, but after booting up the first gmae, i realized this CPU, a graphics card, and 1GB of ram was awsome. i imagine it can be overclocked very far, but i didnt want to blow it, and this computer was for a customer.
Cons: i wish it was cheaper/faster, but w/e, its not for me.
Pros: Working Great so far. Amazingly fast to me since my old PC is a Dell with a P4 2.2 Ghz. I read lots of reviews before deciding on this. Of course this processor had good reviews. My goal was to build an economical, rock solid PC with decent speed for home video editing. I put this processor on a ...
Summary: E2140 @ 3.4GHz, Tuniq Tower 120, Gigabyte DS3L, XFX 8800GT 512, G.SKILL 2GB DDR2 800, Corsair 520HX, Antec Nine Hundred gives me 12,200 3dmarks with 3DMark06. I love this processor.
Pros: For gaming, this CPU is all you need. No need for $250 Q6600's or $260 E8400's. This processor easily overclocks to 3GHz-3.5GHz and runs Crysis on high settings and CoD4 at high settings 170+fps at 1024x resolution.
Cons: None. Smaller L2 Cache isn't even noticeable.
Summary: The Dells these are in allow up to 45 nm, which will be the plateau of the 775, I suppose. So I can go to C2-Q sooner than later. E2140 / 2 GB CORSAIR DDR2 667 / FOXCONN BOARD WITH G33 CHIPSET / MSI GeFORCE 8400 256 MB / XP PRO SP2 ( ALL FOR 320.00 ! ).
Pros: This chip is in my new Dell Vostro 200's. I have been building AMD for many a year, and this chip seems to be faster than my slightly overclocked x2 3600 +'s. It seems to do the typical pc stuff faster right away.
Cons: None for the price of my systems, which were so low it is sick !
Amazing, overclocks to 1333 FSB on stock voltage! Free performance!
8 March 2008
Summary: If you cant hit 1333fsb for whatever reason (such as your motherboard) You can at least overclock it to 266 on the FSB, giving you 2.1Ghtz free without touching the voltage at all.
Pros: This is actually an update from an earlier review. I overclocked this amazing little thing on a Gigabyte DS3R, got it to an amazing 1333 FSB, which made it run at a multiplier of 8 x 333fsb....which is 2.66Ghtz!! stable at stock/normal voltage! I set the memory divider to make my DDR2 800 to run ...
