4 out of 5 eggsLasting performance throughout the years

Pros: - Two cores with 2.4 GHz; outdated today but fantastic in 2006

- Handled gaming very well until 2011

- Good balance of value and performance

- Performance was definitely improved by higher-speed RAM

Cons: - Only two cores which was sub-standard by 2010

- Gaming capability fell substantially by 2011

- Did not pair well with AMD video cards

- Speed plateaued at 4GB of RAM

- Overclocking was virtually impossible when this card was current

Other Thoughts: I had this CPU running with 2GB of 1033MHz RAM for the first year I had it, then upgraded to 4GB of 1333MHz in 2011. As mentioned, gaming performance fell later in its life, but was excellent until 2010. I also rendered video with it without problems until 2012, but never exceeded 1080p. Anything above 1080p would've been slideshow city on this thing. Still a great CPU with long life.

5 out of 5 eggsThe little processor that could

Pros: 7 years strong and still chugging along just fine at 3.2ghz.

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: A 2.4ghz processor overclocked an extra 800mhz. Pretty impressive. Even more impressive that its ran for 7 years with a 800mhz overclock and still running strong with no sighns of death in its sight.

Intel just did the C2D series way to good.

5 out of 5 eggsRock on Intel (again)

Pros: Reviewed this back on 11/5/07. At that point, it had been running smoothly since February of that year. I managed to get this chip up to 3.6Ghz shortly after 11/5/07 and it stayed there until 1/2009 when I put it in a rig for a friend. Due to MOBO limitations, I was only able to clock it up to 3.4Ghz, but it is still humming along in that same PC. So, the way I see it 6 years in service (and going) at 40-50% OC without so much as a hiccup should be worth more than 5 eggs. Alas, Newegg only has 5 eggs to give :)

Cons: Considering the price I paid, how well it overclocked and given that it STILL fights like a champ 6 years later, there can't possibly be any cons.

Other Thoughts: If you need an older LGA 775 chip for a system and you can't afford or don't need one of the quad-core chips, the E6600 (Conroe, not the Pentium version) should be on your short list. For the record, the only remaining original components still in service from my 2/2007 build are this CPU, the PSU and...the case. If only all computer components had this kind of longevity after years and years of abuse...

5 out of 5 eggsGreat CPU

Pros: Good CPU never had any problems

Cons: Couldn't over clock

Other Thoughts: Listed under Cons but not really a con. just could not get this guy to over clock, maybe just the outside of the wafer stamp. but could not get this beast to overclock past 2.6 from 2.4 even with a good motherboard (BFG 680i).

5 out of 5 eggsMultiple units still going strong

Pros: Years after their introduction, I still have these chips powering my NAS and servers. They have no problems handling the moderate 24/7 workloads I give them.

Cons: Not Ivy Bridge?

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent

Pros: Intel, not AMD
Fast
Reliable

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: Bought it in 2007 and it still just plain rips.
No reason to go to a quad yet, my Conroe is still cruising along and does everything I need it to.
