Very good overclocking potential. Running everything quite smoothly.

You can find this CPU for only 20 Dollar/euro, it's still an absolute good CPU. Back in the days this CPU cost over 1000 euros

Love it still is a beast in 2020 and competes with Ryzen 5


Good

Good overclock speeds but lacking in IPC - It's days are numbered but it still hits hard and totally relevant paired with a modern GPU. A 2080ti is the limit as it saturates the PCIE 2.0 in the x58.

I have two Dell T3500 systems. One for gaming and the other to stream my games. The streaming system is running Manjaro Linux and it rocks.
