Experience: 5 Years
Amazing, fast, efficient, relatively quiet.
Could be a little better at multitasking, but it got the job done.
Have had this for 5 years and love it. Sad to see it go but I'm upgrading to a 3930K. You've been great, old friend. I'll miss ya!

Would recommend for any starter system.

Experience: 5 Years
was very fast
dual core
Had this for 5 years now. Served me well. Going with 3930k for an upgrade

Experience: 2 Years
dual core, fast
It's not a quad core
It's a good processor for a HTPC or for light gaming. There are better processor's out there now but this was AWESOME when I first got it.

Experience: 6 Months
Fast, affordable, easy to Overclock.
found this to be an excellent overclocker as many review sites have pointed out. Running 4.2Ghz easy.

Experience: 6 Months
 Verified Owner
Great oc capability.
Runs solid with everything out today.
Runs cool if you set it up properly.
Requires a significant step up in voltage over 4.2 Ghz.
Can run hot at anything over 4.2 Ghz.
What else can be said about possibly the best CPU Intel have ever created. This thing is good aout of the box and great after you put the juice to it. Try to keep it under 1.365V after you burn it in, GL have fun.

Experience: 1 Years
Good reliabiltiy
Great heat preformance
good dual core use in OS
Very good custmoer support
Hard to overclock
I bought this CPU in a computer system. I am still using it today and it is serving me well. It works very well with the newest graphics apps and games (perfect with GTA 4). It uses its ful dual core potential and boots very fast with the OS. Its very good in terms of temps, which are mostly under 40C with stock cooling. Overclocking is a bit complicated buy thats mostly attributed to my mobo. Definitely a to buy and a very worthy product for your PC!

Experience: 5 Months
Intel Core2 Duo architecture
High frequency
Low price
The overcloackability, you have to be lucky and get a good chip to get some descent result before C0 stepping
For gaming Core 2 are way better than Quad cores, video games as of now cant take much benefit of more than 2 cores , also with core 2 you get higer frequency for lower cost than quad cores. Frequency is really important for videogames compared to the number of core.
For gamers its the thing to get. Also compared to e8400 the average 60$ diferrence really worth it.

Fast without being ridiculously expensive.
None yet.
Great proc for those on a budget, but still looking for a good chip. Make sure you get a good mobo to OC it with though, as it can run above spec with no probs. Fast enough for everything I have thrown at it so far.

The E8500:
1. Runs much cooler and with greater efficiency than it's predecessors and many of its contemporaries.

2. Amazing $/ power ratio. seriously... amazing!

3. Huge headroom for Overclockers (which further enhances point 2)

4. Very good access and process time. (I threw an 8 enemy 1000 unit limit map of Supreme Commander at it. I finally got lags around 6000 units)
It's not the latest thing, but that can be a plus for the budget conscious.

Takes a long time to OC, anything more than medium sized bumps it won't take.
If you are looking to build a strong machine, or upgrade an old one, and don't have the money throw away at a whim. This is a superb chip.

Fast, fast,

Comment: can over clock to 4.2 on air
Posted by: dan_b @05/09/08
Comment: Enthusiasts have been waiting on the 45nm Wolfdale to appear since Intel first announced the line. The 3.16 GHz Core 2 Duo E8500 sits at the top of the Wolfdale food chain, and offers a very compelling mix of high performance, low power usage and insane overclocking.
