“A Return to the Intel Fold”

Blistering performance. Good overclocker. 64-bit p...

Pricey. Heat sink and fan is a little strange.

Since building my first PC in 1999, I had used AMD processors. Initially, it was just an enthusiast, cost-based decision. But as the Athlons improved, and then gave way to the Athlon 64s, I truly believed that AMD were making the best processors. It was with a feeling of unfaithfulness, then...

One word, awesome. That's the only way I can think to describe this processor to you. The performance that you get with this CPU is astounding, destroying my petty benchmarks. With very little effort I was able to overclock it to far faster speeds than the top of the line Conroe processors, and...

None! It's so good! :)

This is a fabulous processor! I recommend you buy this product as it is not expensive compared to others and I'm having no issues with it whatsoever. I'm very pleased with my purchase :) My old Intel processor had trouble coping with the heat and I couldn't play games when the weather was hot so...

The Intel Core 2 Duo E6600 Boxed processor is my first try at the world of dual-core (and eventually multi-core) processing. After building my computer consisting of the Intel processor, EVGA nForce 680i SLI motherboard and EVGA 8800 GTX graphics card, topped up with 2 GB of Corsair XMS2 8500 RAM...

Not the best out there but worth it if your thinking of building a computer for soft media or for multi-tasking this could be the answer. A little over priced but ease of installation makes up for the extra . Works well in conjuntion with most graphics cards and at least 1Gb RAM , overclocked and you wont need anouther processor for a long time . Stable at high usage , Could have been 3.0 GHz at the same price all in all a good Chipset to use as a first .

though intel's products cost a little more than amd, there compatability is better than amd so the chance is you wont have to change your motherboard and potentially other stuff in order to upgrade in the future, being intel has also brought out a quad core processor if you wanted to get that when it comes a little down in price then that will be able to put that onto the motherboard you alwready have with this intel chip.

great speed and multitasking , big cache

price (worth the money )

have changed from a pentuim 4 3.2 to ASRock ConRoe945G-DVI i945G SKT LGA775D with an E6600 CPU and the difference is outstanding. Being a 65nm Chip, it uses less power and thus produces less heat, this save money but most importantly enables better overclocking potential. I run my 2.4GHz CPU at 3...

40% faster 40% smaller

This chip is the dawn of a new age in CPU power. Thinking of an upgrade, this chip is yours. No need to even buy or upgrade RAM, 256mb or even 512mb is enough. I tested this chip it is a benchmarking monster. I've given the Core 2 Duo a benchmark it will never forget. It anhilates AMD in game...

Fast, energy efficiant, cheap

intel have announced 6 core cpus on the way

Excellent Processor, the usual simple to install and the stock fan does its job well. Very overclockable and can easily reach speeds of 3.0ghz without having to change the cooler. In my oppinion certainly worth picking up as great value for money also with the release and rapid take up of quad...

Its not for free... yet...

I recently upgraded from an athlon x2 3800 to this beauty and am very pleased. Of course the difference between my old x2 3800 and this the 2 Duo would be hugeeee, but I didnt expect it to be all that much. It runs about 10 degrees cooler than the athlon and thats on stock cooling and overclocked...
