  • newegg The Power of Dual-Core Delivers Exceptional Benefits to Your Platform. Intel dual-core processors have two complete but distinct execution cores in one processor package running at the same frequency. Both cores share the same packaging and the same interface with the chipset memory, but they operate as distinct execution cores. Dual-core processing is one way of delivering a higher level of performance while balancing power requirements.
  • newegg Intel Extended Memory 64 Technology (Intel EM64T) Intel EM64T provides an enhancement to Intel 32-bit architecture by enabling the desktop processor platform to access larger amounts of memory. With appropriate 64-bit supporting hardware and software, platforms based on an Intel processor supporting Intel EM64T can enable use of extended virtual and physical memory.
  • 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.

4 out of 5 eggsReally good Processor for Price

Pros: I got this processor because I was on a tight budget and wanted the most bang for the buck. Processor has not disappointed me. Some users state about the heat issue. I bought a Coolmaster Centurion 5 case and with the stock heatsink and fan I idle at 40C and max at 52C.

Cons: The problem with heat is not a issue for mine but I have notice that you cannot make the stock fan run at full speed. Tried to set my bios up so it would just run the fan at 100% speed like I've had it setup on my other computer but no matter what you do it controls itself. The problem with this is that the processor could easily run in the high 30C idle and max in the 40's if I could just have the fan run at full speed all the time. It seems even when on heavy applications running I can get The fan speed to get up into 3200 rpms but I've seen it go as high as 3600 rpm. It idles normally at 2000 rpms so missing out on 1600 rpms of speed which is my only problem. Pent D may run hotter but they are designed for that. The heat threshold seems a bit higher then on other processors. When I first installed processor I didn't put enough thermal compound on so my processor was idling at 80C and was still stable.

Other Thoughts: Pocessors have far past the need for so much power for the normal gamer or computer user. With this processor I ran C&C tiberium wars and it only uses 30% of the processor. If you looking for a cheap strong processor Pent D do the trick.

5 out of 5 eggsFaster and cooler than its 805 brother.

Pros: This is a very nice cpu, it's faster than the 805 and runs cooler. The 800mhz front bus is very nice over the 533mhz on the 805. I've used five of theese in builds for friends and a machine for my mom. They take on all the games without a hitch and run quiet under stock settings.

Cons: Use good paste on the heatsink, the stuff that comes on the stock intel is a little square of stuff thats not better than playdough.

Other Thoughts: Even though its not as fancy as the Core 2 Duo chipset, it's still a great dual core for gaming, multi tasking and general use.

5 out of 5 eggsBest for the price.

Pros: -Dual cores and nice overclocking possibilities.

-Runs pc games very well.

-Works well with a 680i lt sli motherboard.

-With an asus 10 dollar cooler it is running cool, i didn't attempt using the stock cooler.

Cons: -Video encoding for burning dvd's seems slow taking atleast 40-60 minutes for an hour long movie but i have not compared it to any other processor.

-In Battlefield 2 and 2142 it helps my video card run at max settings although map load times are incredibly slow, atleast 10 minutes at the least which is unacceptable.

Other Thoughts: -This cpu has lasted me a year and a half so far and soon will be replaced with an e6600 not because of performance but just to keep up with technology.

-If you are looking for something to just do regular things and entry level to moderate gaming then this is great for you although its worked for everything i like to do including gaming and everyday jobs.

-Paired with a single not sli evga 7950gt ko superclocked and getting an average of 80-110fps in gameplay and 112.25 on video stress test, clearly not bottlenecking the card,

-When compared to my Pentium 4 540 the performance is almost the same although i get 1-4 more fps with the pentium 4_3.2Ghz_, But this is the newer technology and also has more L2 Cache.

-I paid a bit more for mine a while back but for 82 bucks this is a steal for a moderate level computing experience

-Thanks to newegg for getting it to me fast and easy!

3 out of 5 eggsProcessor Throttling

Pros: Improved performance when running at full potential.

Cons: Gets so hot that it throttles back the power to half of it's rated capacity.

Other Thoughts: I wish I would have paid a little more and got the 6300 or just stuck with AMD.

5 out of 5 eggsgreat 4 the money

Pros: very fast chip. vista scored it at 4.7. u cant get a beter chip 4 the price imo. the best part about it is that i got a killer mother board that suports quad core so when that puppy is about two to three bills....;)

Cons: some what hot but not realy 50c when the heat sink kicks into high gear it will go down to 40c.didnt work well with dual core center. 1 day the high fan setting is at 4600 rpm the next its at 3600 if any one is familiar with MSI dual core center let me know.

Other Thoughts: in a year i get a QUAD CORE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! ya

5 out of 5 eggsIt runs well but hot

Pros: It's fast it's fast and did i say it's fast

Cons: it runs warm

Other Thoughts: I got this thing for $120 almost a year ago and it still runs fine. As i type this i'm listing to the fan catching up with the stress test i have it under. It's running at 65c and is still stable as a rock. The fan is doing 1910 rpm. At idle it runs at 57c at about 1200 rpm.
