This thing just keeps on running after many years. I've gotten pretty good performance out of it actually. If you run a cleaner/tune-up and update your drivers regularly, you'll be fine. I use AVG for both. It won't do gaming, but for work from home, Amazon Workspaces, e-mail and internet, it's surprisingly good and very consistent. It's like having an old Toyota Camry or something. Gets the job done every day.

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.

 Frequently Asked Questions

 Best User Rated

Why does UserBenchmark have a bad reputation on reddit?
Marketers operate thousands of reddit accounts. Our benchmarks expose their spiel so they attack our reputation.
Why don’t PC brands endorse UserBenchmark?
Brands make boatloads on flagships like the 4090 and 14900KS. We help users get similar real-world performance for less money.
Why don’t youtubers promote UserBenchmark?
We don't pay youtubers, so they don't praise us. Moreover, our data obstructs youtubers who promote overpriced or inferior products.
Why does UserBenchmark have negative trustpilot reviews?
The 200+ trustpilot reviews are mostly written by virgin marketing accounts. Real users don't give a monkey's about big brands.
Why is UserBenchmark popular with users?
Instead of pursuing brands for sponsorship, we've spent 13 years publishing real-world data for users.
