this review makes the processor questionable
Tech Level: high - Ownership: 1 month to 1 year
Pros: Cheap, Cheap, cheap. good at multi tasking, ect. Does NOT RUN HOT. for all the reviews you read about processors overhaeting with the stock fan, is because they didn't set the heatsink on right. runs 30-32C idle.(or sufing ect). The stock heatsink is designed for it! of course it works! Now to the cons.
Cons: NOT FOR GAMING WHAT SO EVER!!!!!!!!!. My 3 year old p4 2.8Ghz 800FSB, SMOKES THIS THING. This supposed dual core beast takes over 8 mins to load a single map of BF2, my p4 does it in about 60 seconds. WITH THE SAME SETUP. acutually my system has a slower speed ram so WTH!. Anyways I am VERY surpised at just how lame this thing is, for $xX less you can get a faster Processor, the p4. It does everything you want it to, but lets put it this way, its not much faster then a celeron D.
Other Thoughts: Don't buy this thing its no good, your better off buying a P4, or an AMD of similar price. Or if you have the cash for the LOVE OF you know who(Xamn you newegg) BUY A CORE 2 DUO!! Belive it or not, if you game you'll regret it. p.s Im not the only one whos mentioned this. Stop censoring me NEWEGG!, you do rock though:P
all i do is game!~
wow after reading alllll these reviews...this thingis like a souped up celeron d...its multi tasking but SUCKS for gaming!
may look for something else now...amd?
