Built on the innovative Intel Core micro-architecture, the Intel Core 2 Duo E4300 processor features two independent processor cores in one physical package operating at 1.8GHz with a full 2MB L2 cache and an 800MHz FSB to provide truly parallel computing for enhanced multi-application performance. PC users are running multiple, intense software applications simultaneously and demanding more on hardware resources.

In office, PC usage has changed from data entry and word processing to e-Commerce, online collaboration and an ever-increasing need for continual security and virus protection. In the home, interests have shifted from low-bandwidth photos and Internet surfing to downloading and viewing high definition videos as well as advanced photo and video editing. The all-new Intel Core 2 Duo processor was developed to meet all these demands.

There are reviewers who say that this is a CPU design for Intel which will really change the industry and what gamers consider as the CPU of choice. Other features including Intel Wide Dynamic Execution, Intel Smart Memory Access, Intel Advanced Smart Cache and Intel Digital Media Boost, all help the processor do more in less time.

  • newegg Dual-Core Processing with 2MB L2 Cache The Intel Core 2 Duo E4300 processor features two independent processor cores in one physical package running at 1.8GHz with 2MB L2 cache and a 800MHz FSB to provide truly parallel computing for enhanced multi-application performance.
  • newegg Enhanced Intel SpeedStep Technology (EIST) EIST allows the system to dynamically adjust processor voltage and core frequency to decrease average power consumption and average heat production. Combined with existing power saving features, EIST may provide an excellent balance between providing power when you need it and conserving power when you don't.
  • newegg Scalability and Performance with Intel EM64T Intel Extended Memory 64 Technology (Intel EM64T) can improve performance by allowing the system to address more than 4 GB of both virtual and physical memory. Intel EM64T also provides support for 64 bit computing to help handle the applications of tomorrow.
  • newegg Execute Disable Bit (EDB) Intel's Execute Disable Bit function can prevent certain classes of malicious "buffer overflow" attacks when combined with a supporting operating system. Execute Disable Bit allows the processor to classify areas in memory where application code can execute and where it cannot. When a malicious worm attempts to insert code in the buffer, the processor disables code execution, preventing damage or worm propagation.

5 out of 5 eggs4 years, Overclocked to 3.0 GHZ, Still running strong

Pros: Purchased in April '07, overclocked it to 3.0Ghz with MSI P6N SLI-FI LGA 775 MB., and over 4 years, I've had maybe 5 BSOD's running WinXP64, and for the past few months, Win 7 Pro. Great chip, and finally looking to upgrade the rig. Fetches a 6.4 in windows experience.

Cons: Half a dozen BSOD's in 4 years running WinXP64 and Win764.

5 out of 5 eggsMore bang for the buck

Pros: Overclocks better than anything I've ever owned. Have been running for months and months at 3.0GHz with no problems at all. AND...that's with the stock heatsink and fan!

Cons: I love it so much I may keep it far beyond its "useful life" to a tech geek. =D

Other Thoughts: I'm still amazed at how well this thing runs, and will be hard pressed to replace it when these new 45nm processors really get rolling. Then again, new toys.....

5 out of 5 eggsOverclocker

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent overclocker

Pros: Runs great on a Gigabyte GA-P35-DS3L at 2.9 without a hitch. I'm sure I could push it a lot harder if necessary.

Cons: None.

5 out of 5 eggsGood OCing, stable

Pros: Good Overclocking, I got it to 2.7Ghz with stock cooling and no Vcore messing. It runs cool at this speed too (30-40C).

Cons: Only 2mb cache, but really take a look at the charts, the difference of performance between 1,2,4, and 8mb of cache is 10-15% from 1mb to 8mb

Other Thoughts: Very good CPU, but the E2180 or E2200 are better deals now

5 out of 5 eggsNice for OC novices

Pros: Very nice overclocker. Using a EVGA 680i, and Zalman fan, OC'ed to 3.15Gz. Others may get better numbers, but I don't have the guts to go further.

Cons: Only dual core (vs. quad core), but hey, no one has written quad core programs (or will in the near future).

Other Thoughts: First time OC'er, and this was a relatively easy setup (look on the web for guides). A must if you want to OC.

5 out of 5 eggsBest OCing CPU ever

Pros: This CPU is the best overclocking chip Ive seen since the celeron 400. It has the perfect multiplier, paired with an Nvidia 650i board, and cheap ram. Anything less than 3ghz, your not trying hard enough. Mine is stable at 3.45, with very very little (+.1 volt) core voltage tweaking.

Cons: Its not free and cant give backrubs. Its not even hot enough overclocked, to cook anything with.

Other Thoughts: They are getting more and more rare, but the price/performance of this chip overclocked beats ANY other dual core cpu. AND EVEN BETTER THAN SOME LOWER END QUAD CORES!!!

5 out of 5 eggsOC Magic

Pros: Bought this b/c did not want to spend $1K on a quad core processor that could only be a dual core in "real life". Got 3.15 Gz after OC w/ Zalman cooler. Occ glitches (once every 3-4 months) with very high processing (i.e. boku multitasking), but works very well, even on my processor intensive applications.

Cons: see above

1 out of 5 eggsdon't waste your time

Pros: CPU worked really well right out of the box but thats about it

Cons: After a few months of having this CPU, it is running incredibly hot and I'm getting multiple BSOD's relating to the CPU. I'm not running THAT much, sometimes just firefox and my outlook, and I'll get a BSOD because of the CPU.

5 out of 5 eggsWhats not to love

Pros: If you are looking at this CPU you probably know it has a reputation for overclocking, and it lives up to it. Using a gigabyte P35-DS3L and an Arctic Cooler Pro 7, I am easily able to get this CPU to reach 3.2Ghz without even upping the vcore. Buy it!

Cons: None, maybe intel should ship them with arctic cooler 7.
