Strengths: Fast, low temps

Weakness: None

I am running it on ASUS Maximus Formula with 4GB Crucial Balistix and Vista x64. Processor overclocked to 3.6 with Zalman cooler, and Probe II show tempreratures around 15C idle and 25C under full load, even if you don't believe ASUS Probe, adding another 15C still a good temperature.

Core 2 Duo E6850 Dual Core Processor

Strengths: Runs fast and can be overclocked, although I haven\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\

Weakness: EasyTune Pro 5 can be a little buggy. Depending on what other programs you have running (in startup) it may fault on startup and it will either no load when you try to start it again or it will.

I am an AMD guy but AMD just isn\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\'t the top dog right now so I went with Intel and I am not disappointed. I can run World Community Grid using both processors and still play games: Crysis, Civ 4, Half Life 2, Team Fortress 2, Portal.

Intel Core 2 Duo E6850 Processor

Strengths: Fast 1333 MHz FSB, 3.0 GHz processor speed, easily overclocked, runs cool.

Weakness: None

The Intel Core 2 Duo E6850 Processor is an outstanding performer with it's 1333 MHz Front Side Bus and 3.0 GHz processor speed. I installed this processor on a new Gigabyte GA-X-38 DQ6 Motherboard and it performs flawlessly. It handles multiple applications with no problem at all and runs quite cool even with the stock heatsink and fan.

Runs Fast, Runs Cool, It Rocks!

Strengths: Works very fast

Weakness: None at this point

Easy to install, just push pins down and it snaps into place. This processor can handle all of it and it's very fast and runs very cool. One great chip!

Core 2 Duo E6850 3GHz

Strengths: Powerrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr!

Weakness: None

If you are tired of waiting for your programs to load and you are drumming your fingers waiting for things to process you may want to consider this processor. Everything I use is running many times faster than before with my ancient Athlon XP2400. The dual processor allows things like a virus scan to run unnoticed in the background.
