The CPU itself is INCREDIBLY slow and awful to run pretty much anything with. However, it does have one thing definitely going for it. Despite me having used it pretty much 24/7 for the past 7 years, and the SFF Optiplex 760 it's on, having only been cleaned 3-4 times in its' whole life, because I didn't know how to clean a PC until fairly recently. Yet the E5300 STILL runs after all these years, and only begun getting any noticeably slower in the past year or so. This kind of reliability is far more than what I can say for Intel's high end CPUs from just the past year. Because half a year ago I finally managed to get a new computer to replace my Optiplex. And so far I've somehow lost TWO CPUs in a row. First the original i5-11400f I had bought, and then the i5-11500 I bought as a replacement.
