With two computing cores, you'll experience great performance.
Intel's Intelligent Power Capability ensures optimal energy efficiency.
By using two processing cores, the E8600 can deliver higher performance with greater energy efficiency than older single-core processors. The E8600 brings robust performance for both home and business software applications, and users will be able to run more applications simultaneously with less stuttering and slowdown.
Everything including email, downloading, online shopping, and video editing can be done simultaneously and with greater efficiency. No longer is it necessary to choose between work and play--with the E8600 you have it both ways at the same time.
New Technologies Provide Higher Performance and Better Energy Efficiency
By using hafnium, a naturally occurring element, Intel engineers were able to shrink the size of new Intel processors and pack more computing technology into less space. The processor also features Intel's Intelligent Power Capability, which allows it to turn off parts of itself when it isn't in use. The result is improved performance with less energy wastage and a reduction of heat and noise, making the processor easier on your wallet and easier on the environment.
Intel has packed the Core 2 Duo E8600 with cutting-edge technologies for better performance. Wide Dynamic Execution allows the processor to do more tasks simultaneously by enabling the delivery of more instructions per clock cycle, while Advanced Smart Cache technology improves performance by physically placing data closer to the processing cores. And Smart Memory Access, which increases available data bandwidth, means you'll experience less slowdown while multi-tasking, so you can get more done.
Multimedia Acceleration for Faster Content Creation
If you are editing HD video, manipulating professional grade photos, or working with music, the E8600 will let your computer keep up with your imagination. The processor features Intel's Advanced Digital Media Boost for accelerating performance of a wide range of applications including video, gaming, speech and image, and photo processing among others. Additionally, Intel's HD Boost technology further improves the performance of SSE4-optimized applications, such as video editing and encoding in high definition.
The Intel Core 2 Duo E8600 allows for a quieter, more energy-efficient PC while still maintaining a high level of performance. It it backed by a three-year warranty.

** Overclocking is generally not recommended due to the potential to damage the components; Safe overclocking is possible with the right hardware, the right expertise, the right voltages, the right cooling and the right guidance **
If you do not overclock your PC, then the E8500 or E8400 will give you the most bang for your buck. If you DO overclock your PC, the E8500 or E8400 will still give you them most bang for your buck. Any of the these 3 processors will overclock nicely. For a little extra $$$, you can get this E8600 and have a higher "starting point" of 3.33 Ghz at 1333FSB. In my case, I run a 680i board with a maximum declared FSB of 1600Mhz. I also run 8 Gigs of Hyper X DDR2 at 800Mhz. Doing the Math, I found that I can adjust my FSB Overclock to a flat 400Mhz, giving me a resulting 1600FSB at a 1:1 Memory Ratio, giving me a Solid 4.0GHZ for CPU!!
Here is the math in case you were wondering...
- default settings = 333Mhz CPU X 10x Multiplier = 3.33Ghz..... 333Mhz X 4 (quad pumped FSB) = 1333Mhz
- my Settings = 400Mhz CPU x 10x Multiplier = 4.0 Ghz..... 400Mhz X 4 (quad pumped FSB) = 1600Mhz
I have no intention to go beyond the 4.0Ghz specification, since 4Ghz is plenty fast for my needs.Read more ›
Vista 64 is snappy and games play real smooth. Load times for everything are quick.
If you plan to surf the web, watch Youtube videos, Facebook etc, this CPU can still do that.

Nice fast cool duo. Died after 2 years, but thats cause I didn't get it in the blue box. Used OEM.
Other than that I loved the thing.
