I purchased this to upgrade my HP Mediasmart Server ex485, which came with a Celeron 440 35 watt single core CPU. This CPU is rated at 65 watt but still able to operate at the same temperature as the 440, most likely due to the fact that the core has being reduced from 65nm to 45nm so it's much more efficient. This is very important to me because the HP server only has passive cpu heatsink and the stability of the machine will be depending on it.

My goal is to be able to transcode 1080p video from my server to PS3 without stuttering. The 440 was only able to manage up to 720p and E3300 handled this task effortlessly. Don't be fooled by the Celeron branding, this is a very fast chip. According to Wikipedia it uses the same Wolfdale-3M microprocessor design as the Core 2 E7xxx series, the difference mainly being the smaller L2 cache. It also supports many Intel technologies that's not offered with 440, such as virtualization, speedstep, Enhanced Halt State. Best of all it's a core 2 duo for under $100!

paired this fifty dollar cpu with a decent abit p35 motherboard I had, 2gb of kingston hyperx ddr2-800, a kingston v-series ssd, and windows 7 32-bit, and holy cr@p this cheap setup rocks out of the box! Web pages, photos, HTPC use, etc. No problem at all, I put an old 8800GT in there and it can play games like Call of Duty Modern Warfare just fine. It was pretty easy to overclock to 3.6ghz, and just for kicks I put a huge heatsink on it (noctua nh-12p) and removed the fan. With this setup the cpu can take 100% stress load and not go over 50c.

I've built some high-end rigs but this one has become my everyday favorite and also a great silent HTPC

Great processor for the price! Even though it's a Celeron, it performs very well for what I use it for. I'm using this processor in a net desktop (a PC that only goes on the web and nothing else) I built. It runs without any problems, however the fan seemed to operate a little odd. When the computer was running, the CPU fan didn't seem to be spinning fast enough, when compared to other Intel CPU fans I've installed and used. Maybe I'm just seeing things.

All-in-all, this CPU works great!

I needed to upgrade a file server/Active Directory box with a more modern CPU and a bit more memory. This little CPU was the right price (cheap!) and performs quite well in its duties. I'm happy with the purchase. I installed it into an ASUS motherboard and had the PC up and running pretty quickly.

This product gave me no worries. It worked the fist time. I would recommend this product. If I needed more I'd buy it again.
