  • newegg Versatility, Performance and Reliability to Meet All Your Computing Needs Everyone wants something different from their computer—work, play, Internet, music, learning and more. A PC featuring the Intel Pentium 4 Processor opens the door to many new experiences and is as versatile as you are.
  • newegg Greater Performance with Hyper-Threading Technology (HT Technology) Hyper-threading enables multi-threaded software applications to execute two software threads in parallel, thereby improving system responsiveness. Intel Pentium 4 Processors enabled with HT Technology deliver performance and multitasking gains that result in increased productivity and efficiency.
  • 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) Combined with a supporting operating system, Intel's Execute Disable Bit can ward off certain malicious "buffer overflow" attacks. Execute Disable Bit allows the processor to classify areas in memory by 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 eggsjust love it

Pros: idles around 22-25c all day long a lot better than my socket 478 prescotts. I actually had to double check the temp since prescott and 22c very rarely used in the same sentence.

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: I always use artic silver which would be a good idea for everyone and you can't beat the price and the fast shipping

4 out of 5 eggsExcellent Processor.

Pros: This is an excellent processor! Compared to my old CPU, which was a 2800+ AMD Sempron, this is able to run all of my games and other media without any error or interruption. Also, above all, the price of this processor could not be beat. I recommend this for anyone who is bound by a strict budget but does not want to have quality badly affected.

Cons: The installation was a bit tedious -compared to a Socket A CPU- but the great performance quickly turns that experience into a distant memory. Also, if you plan to over clock I would likewise recommend buying thermal paste or a more robust cooling fan.

Other Thoughts: This CPU reminds me of something General LeMay once said: "You get more bang for your buck." Overall it is an excellent processor for a good price.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat

Pros: I've had this for nearly a year now and it performs great; runs everything very fast and handles multitasking very well; some say it runs hot but that's how hot intel p4's run, around 115 degrees F.

Cons: No cons with this processor; great price and performance

Other Thoughts: You may as well go dual core though now days with the PD820 only a little more and the Core 2 E4300 about to drop in price.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat for non-gamer

Pros: Cheap, rock solid stable CPU (when not overheated)

Cons: HOT,HOT,HOT esp when gaming 70deg+ playing CoH and when editing video. Bought a Thermaltake BFF* and actic silver, that helped some, but not enough.
*BFF BigEffinFan

Other Thoughts: The heat makes great excuse to give this sysem to my relatives and build a new dual core!
Again, no problems AT ALL when subjected to low stress day-today use.
