Intel Core 2 Duo E6420 Conroe Dual-Core 2.13GHz LGA 775 65W Processor BX80557E6420

  • 1066MHz FSB
  • 65nm Conroe 65W
  • 4M shared L2 Cache

Crush you enemies, climb the tower of paperwork, do both at the same time. Intel's Core 2 Duo E6420 not only makes it possible, it makes it easy. Carved from a Conroe die each of the 2 cores runs at 2.13GHz and shares 4MB of L2 cache.

This processor is an integral part of Intel's Viiv technology. Your Viiv-based PC can easily access a wide variety of on-demand entertainment sources that you can display on either your monitor or play through your home theater setup. But it’s not just movies, there’s also TV, music and games. It also makes it easier to manage the music, video and photos on your PC.

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 Dual-core Processing with 4MB Shared L2 Cache The Intel Core 2 Duo E6420 Conroe processor features two complete processor cores in one physical package. Significant performance headroom, especially for multi-threaded applications, helps boost system utilization through virtualization and application responsiveness. Its 4MB shared L2 cache increases efficiency of L2 cache-to-processor data transfer, maximizes main memory to processor bandwidth and reduces latency.
  • 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 Intel Virtualization Technology (Intel VT) Intel Virtualization Tehcnology makes it even easier to increase server utilization in your data center by consolidating more applications, while improving data center reliability and adding robustness to virtualized 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 eggsE6420 is a solid overclock

Pros: Overclocked with a Asus P5bDelux, on the MB had to change many options but I'm stable at 3.2 and its been just under a year. Great Chip!

Cons: none! if anything umm nope none!

Other Thoughts: i think the mb helped with the overclock but great chip

5 out of 5 eggsgreat

Pros: first build. easy install. fan is pretty quiet. running WoW, bioshock at max settings and no issues (besides a bum video card). rips cds very fast. WoW used to hitch up a lot when running a site with flash ads--not anymore. can alt tab while running more than one processor intensive apps and pretty much no slowdown. best thing? haven't even overclocked yet.

Cons: no problems.

Other Thoughts: fan IS quiet, but seems to make a--ghostly?--whining sound. don't know if this is normal, or even actually the processor fan itself. i'll probably replace the stock someday, or see if manually turning up the fan speed stops it from slowing down/speeding up.

5 out of 5 eggsCouldnt be happier

Pros: CPU is awesome. I've been a long time AMD fan, but couldnt resist crossing over for a taste. Im hooked. This CPU performs 10x better than expected. Able to play games like CoD4 and AoC at max settings with no hiccups at all.

Cons: none at all

Other Thoughts: For the price you definately get a bang for your buck. Intel has definately won me over.

4 out of 5 eggs

Pros: It does what Intel claims it does. What more do you want?

Cons: Buggy microcode. Then again, all processor vendors seem to be shipping processors with code bugs, as they seem driven more by market demand than pure technical excellence. The errata listed in the processor documentation (see http://download.intel.com/design/processor/specupdt/313279.pdf) listed over a hundred bugs the last time I checked.

5 out of 5 eggsBlazing fast yet ice cold.

Pros: Runs incredibly fast, even at stock. Smoked my old Pentium 4 in everything at stock. Overclocked to 3.4Ghz and it ran even faster. Also cool as could possibly be. Ran at 55C at the highest, even 1.3Ghz over stock.

Cons: Intel hasn't dropped its price that much in the past couple of months. Processors now are better value than this one is.

5 out of 5 eggsCore 2 is the way to go

Pros: This thing performs like a champ. I went from a p4 3.4 to this and the difference is amazing. Everything: games, photo editing, multi-program browsing runs faster with this CPU.

Cons: None so far.

Other Thoughts: This thing also runs really cool. It runs so much cooler than the p4 I can't believe it (about a 10-15 Celsius decrease).

4 out of 5 eggsVista? Go higher

Pros: Great processor for the price! High cache

Cons: If you are using Windows Vista Premium/Ultimate, I would recommend you go a little higher in speed.
