This was my first build & like other first timers, I wanted the best, but had to settle for what I could afford. After looking & comparing CPUs I settled on the E6600, At the time it was in the middle of the road, as processors go, But boy did it have the power. Along with a micro-board, fitted with 4 GB ram, 750W-PSU, 1 TB-HHD, XFX-NiV-9600GTO 750M, Video Card,. With this setup I found that I could Play All of my games at Nearly Full power, with the exception of Crysis2 or some of the newer games coming out. I forgot to mention that this was ran bt a Windows XP Pro - System 3 Build Program. As a matter of fact, Several years later, I'm typing this down on that very unit.
My old Asus P4P800-E Deluxe fried, so I needed a new solution.
The ASUS Core 2 Quad/Intel G41/DDR3/A&V&GbE/Micro ATX Motherboard s P5G41T-M LX is a fine replacement, and works very well with this 3.06Ghz E6600 Dual Core. I'm running a 1 TB SATA Drive (WD Cav Black), using the onboard graphics, and running Win Server 2003. Absolutely no problems building thus far. I installed 4GB of 1333 DDR3 RAM. All 4GB is recognized. Generally easy to install.
My only complaint is that the heat sync that came with this Processor is tremendously horrendous. It's worse than my old P4 3GHz. Plastic attachment to the mobo just sucks.
If you know what you're doing, this is an affordable processor for a new build. Again, not something I'd use to upgrade on an older board.
So, off to find a new processor. There weren't many to choose from, but this one would work.
Installation was easy and it fired up on the first try. It is fast and supports most if not all of the current software and peripherals.

From E5200 to E6600 you would assume it's a huge jump. Wrong, it's not. In fact there isn't a different. I wouldn't buy this cpu if I could go back. It works, what else can I say. Read morePublished on February 17, 2012 by Tony

Bought this to upgrade an E6300 which should have been a simple drop in upgrade, but NOOOOO. PC wouldn't boot once I put this in, upgraded the BIOS just in case, still no go. Read morePublished on September 28, 2010 by E Leigh
