|You can increase your system's power, efficiency, and lifespan with the Intel Core 2 Duo E5000. This quality product features Intel's 45nm process, which can lead to a markedly low power draw of 65 watts. With low power comes low CPU heat, which in turn can translate to a longer system life. Its 6MB and a front side bus speed of 1333 MHz can keep your system responsive. It also has Wide Dynamic Execution and Smart Memory Access to boost execution speed and memory access. Combined together, these features can make for a faster paced gaming experience and support lag free photo and video editing. The E5000's specialized dual core microarchitecture can optimize thermal performance, which can lead to reduced power consumption and noise, which can make it a great choice for both home and office use.This Intel Core 2 Duo E8500 3.16GHz has dual execution cores that can enable the execution of parallel threads or applications to be on completely separate cores. This can result in dual core proficiency that is much more efficient. It can also mean that it has an impressive system response when multithreaded or multiple applications are running simultaneously. The 45mm dual core of this Intel Core 2 Duo E8500 3.16GHz Processor can optimize its thermal performance. This can result in reduced noise as well as reduced power consumption. This product has a heatsink as well as a fan to keep its temperature cool at rest or work.This Intel Core 2 Duo E8500 3.16GHz features Intel Advanced Smart Cache. This technology allocates the L2 cache to each of the processor cores depending on the workload. This can increase the chance that each core will be able to access data. This can reduce any latency and improve its overall efficiency substantially.This Intel Core 2 Duo E8500 3.16GHz features Extended Memory 64 Technology. The Intel EM64T can enhance the Intel 32 bit architecture by allowing the processor platform to access large amounts of memory. This can enable the Intel Core 2 Duo E8500 3.16GHz Processor to have access to extended virtual and physical memory.The Intel Core 2 Duo E8500 3.16GHz is integrated with Enhanced SpeedStep Technology. This can enable the Intel Core 2 Duo E8500 3.16GHz to adjust its voltage and core frequency to decrease overall power consumption. This can also help to lower overall heat production and provide a balance between providing power and conserving power. This 3.16GHz Core CPU has an Execute Disable feature that can prevent malicious buffer overflow attacks. It can allow your CPU to find areas in its memory where application code can or cannot execute. If a malicious worm tries to input code into the buffer, your CPU can disable code execution in an efficient manner. This can prevent any damage or unwanted worm propagation in your Core CPU.With Intel Virtualization, your one hardware platform can function as multiple virtual platforms. It can offer manageability for your business by limiting downtime and maintaining productivity. It can also isolate computing activities into different partitions. In your home, Intel Virtualization Technology can create unique user environments. This can allow multiple family members to use the same platform at the same time.|

Easy to install
Brought new life to an old pc!
I upgraded from an E5400 Pentium Dual Core to this E8500 Core 2 Duo on my second old desktop pc built on an Asus P5QL SE m/b from 2009 which was left aside for a couple of years and the performance results absolutely exceeded my expectations. I needed an inexpensive upgrade for this pc for every day use (no OC and no gaming) and this used CPU was a cheap and easy, yet amazing improvement. We've been using it on a 10 h daily basis for about one and a half month now with no problems at all. I'm so impressed from its speed compared to the previous CPU (almost double) that decided to take the upgrade a little further and install an SSD for the OS. I'm really glad I did this instead of moving to another newer processor version (i series) which requires a substantial upgrade cost in m/b, ram, etc. So if you have an old pc with LGA 775 m/b, want to keep your gear and be able to work faster, buy one of these. You will not regret it!

Reboot Loop / BSOD Errors
I would like to be able to enjoy this processor but it gives me constant Blue Screen errors and automatically reboots my system. Bought it to upgrade my HTPC setup for streaming. EVGA 680i board with latest P33 BIOS. Spent hours troubleshooting trying different voltage settings and memory timings to no avail. The Wolfdale line is supposed to be comptible with this motherboard but I haven't had any luck so far.

Intel Core 2 Duo E8500
The Intel Core 2 Duo E8500 is a great product that worked perfectly when installed. It replaced an E5200 that was the original cpu in an older pc. The difference in efficiency and speed is quite noticeable. A simple fix/upgrade like this can save you the cost of buying a new pc depending on your requirements. Check out Intel's specs to ensure your pc will accept this class of cpu.

Great for basic Windows apps and even many games! These CPUs are plenty speedy for the average user. If you are still working with an older system, try a 10,000 RPM hard drive or SSD for better performance, and of course, 3GB of RAM (memory) is a bare minimum.
