5 out of 5 eggsSucceeded, but it had a good run

Pros: -Very Fast Performance
-Dual Core

Cons: -Newer 955 Presler chip out for little more money and greater performance
-Runs hot under load
-Expensive

Other Thoughts: Have owned for about 6 months. A very fast processor. Idles at about 26*C (With a Zalman 7700-Cu at 1400 RPM). Runs at about 45.5*C to 48.3*C gaming (With the Zalman 7700-Cu at 1800 RPM)

Reccomendation: If you don't know the EE955 Presler is out, it's less than $100 more, and it will run cooler and faster (65nm manufacturing process and clocked at 3.46Ghz with a 1066Mhz FSB). If you are considering this processor just buy the EE955.

5 out of 5 eggsIf yours is hot you're doing something wrong

Pros: Power of the gods fast. Runs super cool compared to my 3 gig Prescott single core.

Cons: Price for those that have to pay for it.

Other Thoughts: I have mine in an Antec P180 case and a Thermaltake big typhoon heatsink on it. Idles at 25, temp for max load on Sandra is 46. This processor does everything fast. You better have fast memory and hard drives to back it up or you are wasting your time.

4 out of 5 eggsIndeed Hot, don't let anyone fool you.

Pros: This is a fast processor. Couple it wiih a 64-bit OS and watch out! I built a system for a customer and they were extremely happy. But he doesn't know the technicalities.

Cons: Hot, not a very good architecture, expensive. The processor truely is hot, too hot. From the start, any of Intel's dual-core procs have been two Prescott cores forced together, and the Prescott is the hottest running thing out there. For the price I would expect something built a little better. Athlon is a personal choice for all these reasons.

5 out of 5 eggsHot!

Pros: Oustanding processor. With a motherboard that supports it and a 64-bit operating system, be prepared for a nice step forward in the eternal progress of computer technology. While it runs hot, overclocking it does not seem to impact this as much as it does other processors. Very interesting.

Cons: 56 Celsius. This is my average idle temperature with a high-end liquid cooling system installed in a massive heatsink of a case. Gaming temperatures have not been dangerous, yet, but I wonder if that will remain true with the more demanding games of the near future. Even if you have water cooling, be prepared to do something more to relieve this brave little hero.

Other Thoughts: Perhaps it will seem like mollasses in five or six years if processor speeds manage to rise out of their current rut in their rate of evolution, but right now it is like butterscotch, baby. Butterscotch.

5 out of 5 eggsput the pipe down hippie

Pros: Performance for novice overclockers

Cons: Price for people who have to buy it themselves..

Other Thoughts: If this processor is running too hot, you are either doing something wrong, using a po$ mobo, or have it severely overclocked. If this processor is running extremely hot under 4ghz, do urself a favor and sell it, you dont need it...

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Processor

Pros: Easy overclocker, with a good H/S or watercoolin kit you can get to 4.4-4.5, high temps start to kick in around that range, need phase to get to the 5 ghz club. Dual core, is what the future is about.

Cons: N/A

Other Thoughts: If you wanna have a top notch computer, add this to ur mobo along with some good ram, and ur set for a couple of yrs!

5 out of 5 eggs840 EE @ 4GHZ

Pros: Mounted to a P5nd2-sli deluxe, this dual core is one heck of an overclocker. I run mine @ 4.0ghz with a 5% NOS boost when needed & its just as stable as if it was @ 3.2. With a $xx. watercooler it idles @ 96*F.& 106*F.loaded.

Cons: doesnt like some older games

Other Thoughts: They are kinda picky about wich speeds. Mine does'nt like 3.45, 3.5,3.55,or all of 3.8ghz range

4 out of 5 eggsMommy, my wallet hurts!

Pros: Two cores, two threads per core
Fast, especially for video-related tasks

Cons: Heat (although that's a problem with almost any Intel processor)
Cost... I didn't buy it for myself, I used it in building someone else's computer. If it was for myself, I might have had to take out a 3rd mortgage.

Other Thoughts: In response to the previous review, I know people who have gotten well over 4 ghz on air cooling, and some who have even reached 5 ghz without needing to use phase change (if you don't know what that is, don't ask).

4 out of 5 eggs- - - - - - - -

Pros: Dual-Core, HT.

Cons: Heat, price.

Other Thoughts: First, this processor does work on any version of Windows XP. If you run it on Linux, use Red Hat to take advantage of it's power. Second, you DO NOT need an 8-pin power connector, you need a 4-pin (that's your +12v line), like any other processor. Next, 4 Ghz isn't a stable speed for any current generation processor, especially with a stock heatsink, so you should use a water-cooling system. And, for the record, the AMD X2's do beat these processors in nearly every benchmark that's a standard test.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Stuff!!!

Comments: First of all I built a file server recently and bought 99% of all my hardware on NewEgg.com. All of my hardware are in tip top shape, including this proc. I got the Asus P5MT mobo and Asus's proc fan and this puppy is cool to the touch. I was hoping for +4.2Ghz but I guess it didn't want to go faster than 4Ghz, so she's stable at that speed. Another excellent proc from intel...
