outstanding

Strengths: better performance than 8500 for less money

Weakness: overclock can be trickier than some processors

Great processor for the money. If you're building a PC for gaming or more serious processor intensive tasks, this processor has the best price/performance ratio out there for now. Later, when more apps have been written to take advantage of 4 or more cores, that will change. But for now, this is the way to go. If you take it slow and do your research, you can easily get this processor to 3.4 or...

Fast, cool

Strengths: Runs fast and cool. Stock fan actually quiet.

Weakness: none

I wanted a quiet, fast PC. This processor is great for that. No problems installing. I had planned to buy a premium cooler for a quiet run, but no need. This fan is quiet, especially when modulated with MOBO software.

intel e8400 e0 step

Strengths: runs cool. large cache. easily overclockable with air.

Weakness: 775 clips confusing first time around.

I broke a clip on my stock cooler so ended up buying a XIGMATEK HDT-S1283 cooler. Normally, I'm not an overclocker and get all paranoid about running a chip with higher voltages and higher temps, but with this combo i am running at 3.825ghz at stock voltages. 39C under 100% load. This is only 1C higher than stock cooler at IDLE! I'm amazed enough to write about it here. FSB speed is at 1700mhz...

iNTEL E8400

Strengths: CHEAP, FAST, 45 nm, GOOD FOR CRYSIS AND DIRECT X 10

Weakness: COULD BE FASTER BUT I DONT OVERCLOCK BUT U CAN ALWAS OVERCLOCK THIS CPU TO BE ALOT FASTER.

GOES REALLY GOOD WITH A MSI P7N PLATINUM MOBO, AND A 9600GT PLAYS ALL THE DX10 GAMES GREAT AT 1440x900 ALL SETTINGS SET TO HIGH. SO THIS IS A GREAT BANG FOR YOUR BUCK CPU!

Great Processor

Strengths: 45nm, 6mb cache, 1333mhz

Weakness: none

This is a great processor that appears to overclock well. Along with a great price.

I used to use AMD, and when I first installed this I was shocked to see that Intel has no pins on their cpu's. I never knew that before... I'm not sure if thats a good thing or a negative.
