5 out of 5 eggsGood cpu

Pros: Good upgrade choice for 800fsb limited mobos,65 watts
can handle a large workload,G0 stepping.

Cons: doesnt have 4mb L2 cache,In same price point as the higher end Phenom X3's whcih offer higher multitasking capabilities.

Other Thoughts: It's really made for a specific purpose,If you have a 2006/2007 retail desktop that came with a P4/Pent-D
or celeron and The motherboard is Core 2 duo capable,
anyways I used this for a drop in upgrade from a Celeron D 360,have it OC'd to 2.85ghz with clockgen,running seti@home 24/7

5 out of 5 eggsawesome just awesome

Pros: this processor is just amazing, i did not need quite the power of a quad core but wanted to get rid of my old Pentium 4 and decided on this excellent processor. overclocks good on evga 680i mobo, (from 2.6ghz to 3.5ghz on stock cooler at 13x)

Cons: none so far

Other Thoughts: all in all i am very happy with my purchase although now the q6600 are now hovering around 189 dollars
running in an antec 900, rocketfish 800w ps, evga 680i mobo, 2x2gig trancend 800mhz ram, zotac 8800gt sli, 320 gb hdd

5 out of 5 eggsNice for low budget PC

Pros: Inexpensive. 800MHZ FSB. Can OC easily. Great upgrade for motherboards with a limited FSB. Runs a lot cooler than a P4 or Pentium-D.

Cons: The stock heatsink is small and not as efficient as it could be. Mine idled at 42c using stock cooler. Got a good 3rd party cooler and now it idles at 24c.

Other Thoughts: Wish Intel hadn't cheaped out on the stock coolers.

4 out of 5 eggsSolid upgrade option

Pros: Bought this to upgrade a friends computer from a 1.7Ghz single core Pentium 4 on a 400Mhz mobo. Put it on a 800Mhz mobo and added some RAM (cheap as dirt) and now he's got 3X the machine it was before and spent (total) less than $250 on the upgrade

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: It isn't the latest, greatest proc on the market, but especially considering the nominal cost, it can offer a huge performance increase in an upgrade scenario, and thats where the real value comes in.

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Runs cool and fast. I can run the CPU fan quietly at 50%.
It will have the power I need if I ever have to resilver those 1TB disks.
Wikipedia says the idle power consumption is 8W. Very nice, since this system will be idle most of time and there are plenty of other power consuming parts in it.

Cons: I don't expect any. That's why I got it.

Other Thoughts: I chose this CPU for building a very cool and quiet Solaris ZFS storage system with plenty of room for expansion:
* Lian-Li PC-P80B case
* COOLMAX CUG-950B power supply
* Tyan Toledo i3010 (S5197) motherboard w/4GB RAM
* 2 x SUPERMICRO AOC-SAT2-MV8 PCI-X 8-port SATA cards
* 3 x Addonics Disk Array 5SA
* 5 x Seagate Barracuda ES.2 1TB hard drives

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: very fast, certainly for anything i need it to do

Cons: a little pricey, but not too bad

Other Thoughts: one of the best cpus I can use in my board, a Foxconn P9657AB-8EKRS2H. I found out after i bought the board that it can't do 45nm chips, so i'm glad i bought this cpu

4 out of 5 eggsGood choice...

Pros: Good choice for a motherboard with a maximum 800 MHz FSB. The fastest chip you can get with this FSB. Runs very cool compared to a Pentium D 805 or 9xx. This chip will not tax the CPU fan and makes for a quieter system. I replaced a PD 805 which could fry eggs under load with the E4700.

Cons: Not a lot of pop with the 800 MHz FSB bottleneck. Only about 50% faster than a PD 805. But that's to be expected.

Other Thoughts: A good choice to wring the maximum performance out of a 800 MHz FSB value-oriented motherboard. Enough faster than an E4500 to justify a few extra bucks, but only barely. The real benefit is the lower power consumption and heat load compared to earlier generation Pentium D chips.

4 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Really goood midrange chip.

Cons: There are other Intel CPUs that are cheaper and better. The E7200 completely destroys this chip, but the E7200 is about 4 bucks CHEAPER, and it can OC better.

Other Thoughts: If you have a 45nm compatible mobo, get the E7200, not an E4xxx series chip.
