Intel Pentium E2160 Allendale Dual-Core 1.8GHz LGA 775 65W Processor BX80557E2160

  • 800MHz FSB
  • 65nm Allendale 65W
  • 1MB L2 Cache

Make the universe submit to your will. It doesn't matter if it's the newest video game or multiple spreadsheets, documents and database files, Intel’s Dual-core Pentium processor can manage it with ease. The two cores run at 1.8GHz each and share 1MB of L2 cache.

Two cores means true multi-tasking and multi-threading. Tasks or threads get their own core, no more sharing one core and set of clock cycles. This lets you turn your system into the ultimate home entertainment center PC. One core can play a DVD on the TV, the second sends audio to the kids in another room with no lags or stutters. All this is made easier with Intel’s Digital Media Boost.

  • newegg Specialized Dual-Core Microarchitecture The Intel Pentium Dual-Core processor includes two complete cores in a single processor to enable execution of parallel threads or applications on separate cores with dedicated CPU resources. The results enable outstanding dual-core performance and greater system response when running multi-threaded or multiple demanding applications simultaneously.
  • 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 Intel Extended Memory 64 Technology (Intel EM64T) Enhances next-generation IA-32 platforms with 64-bit addressability and related instructions, allowing flexibility for both 64-bit and 32-bit applications and operating systems.
  • 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 eggsAMAZING

Pros: fast highly overclock-able. medium power consumption not too hot at high OC on air cooling.

Cons: older outdated LGA775. low Cache. not really a con though since its a great chip.

Other Thoughts: while i may not be "verified owner" i assure you i have and am currently running one, at 2.5Ghz and its a sweet little chipset. 2.5ghz on air cooling on a stock HSF i already had i havent hit past 109F. seen many people get 3Ghz + stable on air cooling. if you like to see my video im on youtube my name is demonsparkx

5 out of 5 eggsawesome

Pros: I ran this processor with the stock cooling at 3.2ghz for a year straight. (gigabyte p-35)

333
1.55v

If you're looking for a budget gaming machine these allendales are a good choice, but you can't skimp on the motherboard.

If you need a system for more entensive work, I'd spend a bit more for a core 2 duo.

For instance, 100fps in COD4... shoddy experiences in Lightroom managing medium sized catalogues.

Cons: Dated

5 out of 5 eggsBuy, Buy, Buy

Pros: Do not know how it works stock, since I set at 9x333 (3ghz) @ 1.34volt prior to installing the OS. Matched perfectly with my HD 4850, and plays all of my games at high setting without issue. All for only 70 bucks.

Cons: Not really a con since this is obvious. The stock HSF blows. But I guess at stock 1.8ghz speeds it might be okay. I quickly replaced with a CF900, but like I said before not really a con since I knew this going in.

Other Thoughts: I can hit 8x400 (3.2ghz), but 3ghz is okay for now. Idle/load temps are 36/60, since I still have the speedstep enabled so it runs 6x333 (2ghz) at idle.

5 out of 5 eggsGread for budget builds

Pros: Bought this for my new build since I was on a pretty low budget. I would recommend this to anyone who is doing a budget build. I have read reviews saying that this CPU was hit 3Ghz with the stock cooler, but I haven't tried it yet. I have only tried up to 2.4Ghz and I'm sure I can push it harder.

Cons: None that I can think of

Other Thoughts: Newegg is great, fast shipping!

5 out of 5 eggsNice

Pros: Excellent little cpu. I did the bsel pad mod on mine because there was no way to unlink the pci bus on my $20 board. Pad mod took me from 1.8 to 2.4mhz. No issues what so ever. During the day in my unairconditioned shop it runs at 43c on stock cooling with artic silver. In the evening when temps drop I'm runnin at 36c.

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: I'm pleased with the performance to dollar ratio of this cpu. The bsel pad mod allowed me to at least get an ok overclock on a board that won't allow even the slightest tweak.

5 out of 5 eggsThe Little Engine That Could

Pros: Easily overclocked to 3.0Ghz. Since I'm running a media center computer, my issue is noise and heat rather than speed, all I need it to do is stream video. I have it underclocked at 1.5Ghz and it's enough to stream 1080p video in conjunction with an 8400GS.

What more could you want for this price?

Never seen it higher than 35 degrees in my small form factor Shuttle PC.

Cons: For $70? Not sure.

Other Thoughts: I'm not using the stock Intel heatsink that comes with the CPU. I'm using a Shuttle ICE Genie small form factor heatsink.

Works wonderfully.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat CPU

Pros: This is a great CPU, is quick by itself, but with a good MB it an be clocked high without much effort, got it running at 3GHz on stock voltages with no problems.

Cons: None

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: It has a great price to performance ratio, and that's even more so if you're overclocking, which then makes it probably the BEST price to performance ratio CPU right now. Sure, there's the new E7xxx and E8xxx series, but at the price this is, it's still too hard to ignore the bang for the buck this offers. It's a great dual-core CPU with great potential at a great price, and if you get it here, it's from a great retailer too.

Cons: Low L2 cache, but that's the difference between the E2xxx, E4xxx, and E6xxx series. xtreview did a review on the effects of L2 cache, and there is a difference, especially in heavy tasks and gaming. The difference between 2MB and 4MB isn't that big, but the difference between 1MB and 2MB is larger. 1MB just hinders the architecture a bit, but it's nothing night or day here, and you can overclock to offset it some. I'd suggest stepping up to the E4xxx series, but with the E7xxx and E8xxx series out now, that may be what you're looking at if you're more serious and have the extra budget.

Other Thoughts: I bought this (and some other parts) to replace the internals of my secondary computer. The old Pentium 4 2.8GHz HT and 6800GS AGP were showing their age and lagging behind my E8400 and 8800GT in newer LAN games. Since it was a secondary computer and not used too often, the key was to keep it cheap. Cue the E2xxx series, a motherboard, and some RAM (I already had a 8600GTS). I've gotten it overclocked to 3.0GHz right from the start easily with 667 MHz RAM and the stock cooler, and temperatures aren't too high and it's fast enough for me. Great performance for cheap is never something you should complain about, so even though it's not my E8400, I can't knock it.
