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.

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.
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!
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.
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.
Great processor, can convertxtodvd in about 15 mins, photoshop, virus scanning everything is so fast! can run multiple apps no lag including converting software. watching movies and running adobe and internet movie wont even lag! great.. previous processor was a 2.4ghz p4 lol
