HASH(0x9fc591e0) out of 5 stars Great Processor March 15 2010
By Ciaran - Published on Amazon.com

I was looking for a dual-core that wasn't super expensive but would get the job done. I am a photographer, working with high-quality RAW image files in Adobe Photoshop CS3. As I write this review I am converting and editing over 400 RAW image files (a total of around 5GB of data). This may not seem like a lot but on my older processor (dual core but way slower) this was a serious chore.

With the E6500 I can run Adobe photoshop (which starts up in under 3 seconds btw) batch convert, edit files, write this review, and in a second I am going to jump on Left4Dead 2 - a pretty intensive video game.

All that to say this processor can handle whatever I throw at it. I do some HiDef video editing from time to time and matched with my 4GB XLR8 PNY memory I have yet to encounter lag or stuttering.

An absolute gem of a processor, well worth the what...sixty bucks I spent on it (as of 03/15/2010)??? I would have spent [...] bucks on this processor without sweating it now that I have seen what it can do!

I have done mild overclocks on this processor without any problems, but then again nothing major so I cant really comment. This processor works great without the extra bump!

HASH(0x9fc59408) out of 5 stars Functions within prescribed tolerances July 11 2010
By Jeremy - Published on Amazon.com
This processor is very easy to install and it allows programs to run with relative ease. It was only running at 2.5 Ghz when I installed it. I realized that I needed to change the multiplier setting in my motherboard's BIOS. After I changed the setting in the BIOS, it ran at the prescribed 2.93 Ghz.

HASH(0x9fc594ec) out of 5 stars Best Bang For Your Buck March 18 2010
By B. Campbell - Published on Amazon.com
This is one of those hidden gems you don't hear much about... a Core 2 Duo processor with less cache and a few multimedia extensions disabled (ones that most software doesn't support and few users will miss.) What remains is a fast, dual-core 64-bit processor that scores a solid 6.4 on the Windows 7 CPU test and is plenty fast for most users... all for about $85.

Combine one of these with an Intel G41/G43/G45 based motherboard, add 4GB of RAM, a DVD-RW and a nice fast hard drive like a 500GB WD Caviar Black, and you'll have a great 64-bit Intel-based Windows 7 budget build with lots of room for upgrades.

If you're building a home theatre PC, swap out the DVD-RW for a Blu-ray reader and add a Raedon HD 5570 card, and you're good to go. If you're a gamer, invest the extra cash in a Raedon 5700 series card and you should be set for most current-generation games out there.

Point is, this processor is a great building block for a versatile system. Only heavy-duty gamers and people who do heavy-duty photo editing or media transcoding would realize the value of a higher end processor.

HASH(0x9fc59660) out of 5 stars best for the price Nov. 21 2010

I was surprised how cheap this processor was. I bought it for my build up computer and saw the specifications and liked it. When i got it in the mail it came with the CPU cooler (which it doesn't mention in the product specifications and could have saved me the time with another CPU cooler but thats besides the point). When i was done with my computer build up, it was a nice start up. What annoys me a bit is that sometimes it takes a bit of time to start up any program and there tends to be a lag. I'm not sure exactly if its the CPU, the RAM (4GB installed) or the video card (1GB Radeon video card). Other then that I'm happy with the purchase and the price of the product.

HASH(0x9fc59bd0) out of 5 stars Good CPU July 26 2011
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
This is a good basic 775 pin processor. If you have a 775 pin motherboard (MOBO) with a slower processor or building a new machine, this makes a nice upgrade for the price. It works well with the cooler that comes with it unless you plan on over-clocking. In that case buy a better cooler!

I have built more than five systems with ASUS PQ5 Pro MOBO's; two of them using this processor and all are performing well. Please note, this may increase your computing power. But, More RAM will increase speed and the number of applications that can be ran at once.

Don't run out and buy a new PC just because the old one is running too slow. There are many factors that influence PC Speed.
