Intel proves that 64-bit processing doesn’t have to be expensive. Their Conroe-L based Celeron 440 has Intel 64 architecture which allows it to address more memory when using 64 bit operating systems. The LGA 775 socket means it can take advantage of some of the most current technologies on the market.

The Advanced Digital Media Boost improves media performance for audio, video, image processing, multimedia and more. 128-bit SSE instructions are now handled at 1 per clock cycle, effectively doubling the speed of execution over the previous generation of processors.

  • newegg Intel Celeron Processor The Intel Celeron processor delivers a balanced level of proven technology and exceptional value for desktop PCs. Based on a new energy-efficient microarchitecture, this Celeron processor enables smaller, quieter, and more capable desktop PCs.
  • 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 of the memory where application code can execute and where it cannot. When a malicious worm attempts to insert code into the buffer, the processor disables code execution, preventing damage or worm propagation.

5 out of 5 eggsGood Performance @ Good Price

Pros: Snappy performance, runs Win XP really well, can transcode video to Divx slightly faster than real-time

Cons: I feel fifty bucks is still too much to pay this processor...thirty-five to forty dollars is my preference, does hang on some applications but generally runs smooth

Other Thoughts: I wrote review several months ago on a Celeron 420 (1.6GHz) and said basically the processor was the pits. I still stand by that statement for the Celeron 420 only. The Celeron 440 is nothing like the 420. This guy has snappy performance and doesn't cause the CPU fan to rev up to high speeds making lots of noise. Much of the reason why I am happy with it is because it is mated to an Intel DG45ID motherboard that has intergrated graphics hardware acceleration built-in. Thus, it did not require me to have a powerful processor.

Overall, I am very pleased with the purchase. It was better for me to have started with a powerful processor, e8500, and then fall back to the Celeron 440. I now know what I am missing and not missing.

System Specs:
Windows XP Professional SP3
Intel Celeron 440
Intel DG45ID
Crucial DDR2-800 (8GB) - I went back to XP Professional from Vista Ultimate x64 - what do I do with the extra 5GB?
LG Blu-ray/HD DVD

5 out of 5 eggsDo it.

Pros: Dropped this in a NAS I built for personal use. Cheap and works fine.

Cons: None so far.

Other Thoughts: Great low-end proc for certain applied uses.

5 out of 5 eggsUpdate!

Pros: Well it has been about 6 months of use and I still find this processor to be a workhorse. I have nothing to say but good things. This is my first intel processor since the good old slot series. I have been a huge AMD fan and still am. But I love this 440. I have done a huge amount of HD tests and this processor has passed them all. PERFECT HTPC cpu.

Cons: I did however have the stock heat sink pop off of the board. The plastic clips are horrible. I did have a Pentium D dual core heat sink sitting around new. The Pentium D has metal brackets for the pins. Plus the Pentium D heat sink has a smart fan and copper core and its taller. This mounted much better than the Celeron HS.

Other Thoughts: With the new heatsink the fan stays at 700 rpm no matter how much load I put on it. The processor sits at 18 c all the time. Perfect!

Dswanson's comments are correct. CPU makers have reached a limit on speed and ability to create new hardware. So they will double up useless cores to make it seem faster. Nothing is multi threaded and if it is it doesnt use the cores effectively. The only thing that does is cpu testing software. But real world they arent faster. You buy them and want to think they are faster. You do not need a multi core cpu to multitask.

4 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Performs extremely reliably with acceptable performance for a home file server running 24x7.

Cons: Stock cooler is pointless ... get a better, quieter one. Could be faster, but you get what you pay for.

4 out of 5 eggsGood value processor, bad heatsink

Pros: Decent performance, inexpensive, low power consumption. Performance running Ubuntu 8.04 is very acceptable.

Cons: The included heatsink is loud and hard to mount. Like the other stock Intel fans I've encountered, the fan makes a buzzing sound. The plastic lock retention system is horrible.

Other Thoughts: I managed to get the system running fine, but could not get all the locks inserted 100% (in a Shuttle K48). Processor performance is absolutely fine considering the price and the power used. But I would recommend swapping out the heatsink and fan for something quieter with a screw mount.

5 out of 5 eggsRecommended!

Pros: Great performance from a celeron processor. More than enough power for HTPC and HD video or blu-ray. Plays 1080p on ITX Zotac board with geforce 7100 no problem at all and I mean built it and play no software to mess with. No heat at all stock HS is more than efficent, Cool to the touch at all times. Even multi tasks while watching HD really well.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: Hd 1080p Play back with 30 to 40 percent cpu utilization leaving plunty of websurfing power or other things. Cool low power consumption. Want to built a HTPC? I recommend this CPU. I also recommend the Zotac ITX 630i board with geforce 7100.

Zotac 630i ITX, 2 gigs of 667, 160 gig HD, DVD burner.

5 out of 5 eggsCPU works great

Pros: I had no problems with the CPU. I did have a little trouble with installing the heatsink mount. The plastic lockdowns will break easy so be careful and make sure it is pushed in all the way before twisting into the locked position. ALSO be careful with the pre-applied thermal paste on the heatsink.

Cons: None so far

1 out of 5 eggsFailed

Pros: None to evaluate.

Cons: Not sure if it was the CPU or the motherboard I put it in:
"Foxconn 661GX7MJ-H LGA 775 SiS 661GX Micro ATX Intel Motherboard - Retail"

Other Thoughts: Try, try again?

5 out of 5 eggsIntel Celeron 440 Conroe-L 2.0GHz

Pros: Intel reliability, speed, ease of installation, web site, and support are top-notch. Newegg's price could not be beat.

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: I was unable to find this exact processor anywhere else at a better price. Neweggg is very competitive in terms of pricing and special offers.

5 out of 5 eggsFast and Low power!

Pros: This is an awesome processor. I have been so bummed with the power consumption of the P4 Generation processors. This Conroe-L fixes all that!! The excitement in computing is back with Celeron 440 and Ubuntu 8.04. No more hot computer room with a sluggish loud computer.

Cons: The supplied heat sink is very cheap. Intel has several different heat sinks, and they only give you the one that they calculate is enough. Since this processor is so efficient, they give you the cheapest heat sink. It is very thin, and has no copper core. I have a lot of them laying around, so I used one from a hotter processor. I'm sure that the cheap one is good enough unless your PC is in a glass factory, but as an engineer I just like my stuff to run smooth and cool...

Other Thoughts: Single core. This may or may not be an issue. Intel has spent a lot of money trying to convince everyone that they need multi-core. There is a simple reason for this, they are running out of ability to scale the speed of the cores up. The best thing for their sales and stock price is to change the perception in the market. It is not easy to write clean bug free multi-threaded code. It is not even possible for some tasks. So buyer be ware. You may not get any performance out of multi core, but you WILL get increased power consumption, noise, heat.
