Got this along with a budget build PC that I got. Runs fast, highly overclockable with the right motherboards (I got a EP35-DS3L, also from NCIX). Right now running on 3.34GHz on air with a rather crappy cooler. If upgraded to a better cooler, it can certainly hit 4GHz easy.
I replaced an old Pentium D 805 that I had with this. The computer that it is in runs as my home file/media server. It's cooler and more power efficient than the former processor, so I have noticed a marked decline in heat, cpu fan speed, and I'm actually saving on my power bill! I have not overclocked it, and I don't plan on it, so I won't comment on that. Good processor for a home server, overall.
I don't overclock, so I can't say much about that aspect. The chip is very cool (runs cool). I can have it with my scythe ninja on passive. It's quite speedy as well. I also have the E8400 and I think that the speed of this and that chip are pretty equal.
Recently did a system flip flop going from AMD back to Intel. I must say that intel always seems to be somewhat better designed in terms of temperature and performance. The only thing this processor may benefit from is maybe another megabyte of L2 cache
I'm amazed by this CPU. It's very powerful yet it saves energy when not fully loaded. Paired with my Gigabite Mobo and its EnergySaver program it consumes much less power by using dynamic power phase, dynamic voltage and frequency. I am very happy with this purchase.
