Intel Core2 Duo E4300 

Released July, 2006
  • 1.8 GHz
  • Dual core
4.6 Out of 10

This is the baby of the Intel bunch (unless you count the 'Pentium Dual-Core' range, whose 1Mb cache means it's not as well suited to gaming).

Got it for my birthday, it can go to 3.2GHz with the P35 of my friend.

Reviews Word on the street for the Intel Core2 Duo E4300


9.0
Ours went to 3GHz on the standard Intel cooler (and dedicated sorts have taken it to 3.5GHz).

8.6
Stock performance is too limited for gaming.

Overall

8.9 Out of 10

What People Are Saying Give it to me straight

Socket Type

Sporting only 2Mb of cache and an FSB of 800Mhz compared to the E6 series' 4Mb and 1,066Hz, on paper it appears hobbled.
by Tech Radar (Aug, 2007)

Overclocking

The cache doesn't make a vast difference, and the artificially lowered FSB means you can add a dollop of overclock sauce, with huge results thanks to a generous 9x multiplier.

Cache

the L2 Cache is low.
