2 cores for half the price
first off let me say getting any intel product doesn't come cheap. especially higher end products. let's take a look at this model. "Intel® Core™2 Duo Processor E6750 (4M Cache, 2.66 GHz, 1333 MHz FSB) and lets look at the e6550 model- Intel® Core™2 Duo Processor E6550 (4M Cache, 2.33 GHz, 1333 MHz FSB"(intel.com) the only difference is clock speed and the e6750 gains a +1 to its Bus/core ratio. anyone looking to update there old 775 p4,celeron D, or the dual core Celeron D, don't look any further if your on a tight budget. the e6550 sells currently 175 through tigerdirect.com that i know of, but with some luck you can get the e6750 on ebay between 80-90 dollars. plain and simple you save about $80-$100 through ebay. thats 80-100 you can put to other uses...say upgrading the ram or the graphics card or whatever else you can think of. happy bidding ebayers!!!
this processor is really a beast in it's time even though i'm not a overclocker but there is somebody can get this item to 4Ghz on air..sure with intel new item this item price will get lower and after it's EOL this item is still looked for and a lot of people still using LGA 775 as their system because it's still worth the money and performance...
E6750 Core 2 Duo
The Intel E6750 is an excellent processor--capable of more speed than the stock cooler will allow it to produce. It is a fine and capable CPU at the stock speed of 2.66 GHz, but is capable reaching higher speeds. I ran mine to 3.2 GHz without trying hard at all. For most computing, more than stock speed is a waste and possibly harmful to your processor. The 6750 in my computer runs about 43 degrees celcius at stock speeds and about 58 to sixty when overclocked. Investment in a good, aftermarket cooler might be good for running this processor, especially if any long-term overclocking is a desire.
E6750 is good CPU for upgrading a slow computer using a LGA775 motherboard.
| Yes, I would recommend this product to a friend.
Intel E6750 cpu, for the price of under 7 dollars is just what the doctor ordered. This cpu and 2 others just like it are being used in Qty 3, HP IPIBL-LB motherboards for the computer systems that I have rebuilt. Next to the Intel E8400, E8500 or E8600 the E6750 is the next best cpu for the money. The E6750 is a 65 watt CPU requiring the cheapest Intel cooling heat sinks. I have noticed that this cpu might be used in some Apple computers also, I almost think that is why Intel made this off the wall chip. HP does not list the E6750 as a cpu that can be used in the IPIBL-LB motherboard, it stops short at the E6700. I bought one chip for $6.49 just to see if would work, it worked great, so I bought 2 more each for $6.75 shipping included on eBay. These cpu"s are not being used for gaming, so I do not know how good they are for gamers, but to run Email, Facebook, and OpenOffice it is lightening fast, gamers are well beyond this 2 core chip anyway. I have a very large OpenOffice spread sheet that takes 14 seconds to fully open using a E8400 cpu running at 3.00g, the E6750 running at 2.66g takes 16 seconds. A little slower but for the price I am not complaining. I have a Gateway computer running an Intel G630 which runs this spreadsheet in 12 seconds. As you can tell I am not one that is in the fore front of technology, to waste money like that on the newest thing is not me, but to get the most for my money is, that is why the E6750 is worth every cent for a used cpu at this time. 8-13-2014
Shipping worth the wait
I purchased an Intel Core2Duo processor. It took awhile for the item to get to me, about 2 1/2 weeks. To be fair, I live in New England and had a blizzard, so it may have been a weather-related issue. I never actually got to the bottom of it.
Long story short, however, the item arrived and worked beautifully. I really put my computer through hell with all the gaming and graphic art I do, and the speed jump from dual-core to core2duo was AMAZING. No issues with the processor at all.
