Small price for a very large upgrade

Upgraded a Gigabyte EP45-UD3R with the x5460. Amazing performance increase over the old Core2Duo e8400. Easily overclocked to 3.60 GHz and haven’t tested the limits beyond that. It was super easy to install...just like any other CPU (just had to pay attention the notches are in the correct position). Not sure if it was even necessary, but I patched the latest microcodes onto the latest F9 bios and flashed into the board - no issues whatsoever ever. Delidded dot Com has lots of info into this whole process and was very helpful. Highly recommended upgrade for any compatible socket 775 motherboard.Read full review...

Very bad scratches

Purchased via fcoronado74

Cosmetic:
First thing I noticed is that this is the most damaged pair of CPUs I have ever gotten, I have bought even older used CPUs.

Preformance:
Temperature in C.
Fine preformance, idles at 40-50. Maxes out at 85 via prime95. I lapped them and got temps down 10 deg.

Nice upgrade for Socket 771

A pair of these made my older HP Workstation get up and dance. Only a small performance difference between these and the top-of-the-line CPU's at a fraction of the cost, plus the TPO is only 120W vs 150W for faster CPU's. I'm running these on stock single-stack CPU coolers with no problem. I just had to add a 5th pin to the stock coolers and jump it to pin 3 on each one to fool the MB into thinking it's a double-stack cooler. (This is well documented on the web.) IMO, it's the best bang for your buck if you have one or more LGA 771 sockets to populate.Read full review...

Cheap upgrade to an old computer

It performs well,easy to install and gives a nice little boost from a core duo however it is loud when u have more than 3 windows open at the same time.It seems to put the fans at wide open during FB Game room app running. and I also haven't been able to flash a new bios for it yet,that will probably quiet the fans down some once its been flashed with latest Bios

Eight years old, but still great performance at a cheap price

I purchased this CPU after I found out about the modification that will allow socket LGA 771 CPU's like this one to work in some LGA 775 motherboards. I have mine installed in an Asus P5Q motherboard with a modified BIOS and cooled by a Cooler Master evo 212. It easily overclocks to 4.1GHz without issue. It really breathes new life into an aging LGA775 platform at a cheap price.Read full review...

Great for 771 mod: Gaming on a budget

I decided that I wanted to get into PC gaming again, and instead of building a whole new computer I decided to upgrade my existing lga 775 rig. I slapped in a GTX 750 Ti and this processor. In order to install this CPU into a 775 board, all you have to do is buy and put on a 771 mod sticker onto the bottom, cut a part of the mobo and slap this puppy in. I was able to easily get it to 3.5GHz, and was only restricted by heat. I'm sure I could push more if I added a better heatsink to it. Cinebench R15 scores increased from 183 to 294. Not a huge increase, but I notice a much bigger impact on in-game performance compared to benchmarks I've run. Definitely a worth-while upgrade for old lga 775 computers on a tight budget.Read full review...

Old Cheap but Powerful CPU

This is a CPU from 2006!!! However it was at the time a server grade CPU and still can perform quite nicely in 2017. Good!
