Nov 2019 - Business Computer Pros: Been operating for basically 5years straight for 24hours a day, 7days a week. Cons: Struggles to run Win7 in a prebuilt Dell PC with 4GB of ram. Company software barely functional. Office 360 and Outlook 360 lag. Chrome tabs are a quick way to kill it. Just forget multitasking.

I have it since 6 Years and it stil works (But don't buy it! Its to old!)


17 months ago.

anyone who says it is not overclockable, it IS in fact overclockable. you just need a compatible motherboard. (Asus's P5KPL-AM for example.) 3.37GHz with +150mv runs as stable as stock.

just overclocked it to 3.66ghz (11x333mhz) ..works great with new ssd and cheap radeon hd5450 (60fps 1080p in youtube) Win7 64bit. didnt play any games. completly satisfied.

Probably the best value performance CPU you can get back then. It's still used commonly for office PC at this day provided you install SSD first to cover very weak processor performance!

La CPU è ancora discreta con Windows 10 a 64 bit
