Beast processor during its time, when single core performance was king, but also software support, starting with Windows itself, was a major factor, it's crazy because all the benches at the time showed the e8500 beating the Phenom II 965 in gaming( the reason I was building a system) at the time, especially when it came to OC. Crazy what the benches are now, if you have Phenom II now with a mobo that works it may be useful (but they aren't very power efficient) but I burnt my mobo out overclocking so the point of what either processor could do 5 much less 10 years later is pretty moot. [Feb '21 qnytech1]
