4.8 Out of 10

. . If you are looking for a great overclocking CPU and are on a tight budget than look no further than the E5200.

Not to mention, the 45nm technology that it uses, you are looking at a CPU that can easily compete with some of the more "power" hungry processors in the Dual-Core market.

Reviews Word on the street for the Intel Pentium E5200

Mine's a R0 revision/stepping, and many said and has shown that the M0 revision/stepping that launched before R0 has an even better overclocking potential.

What People Are Saying Give it to me straight

Socket Type

I recall my friend spotting the bargain deal for this product on Tiger Direct near the year end of 2009.

Overclocking

I think that this processor was released more or less for the overclocking enthusiasts as the potential that it had was quite remarkable compared to other Dual-Core models that were on the market at the same time.
by mega_option101 (Nov, 2011)

Power

I use it as it is the only processor that I own that has a low wattage foot-print and that will not bottleneck with my GPU.
by mega_option101 (Nov, 2011)

Count

I know I could have sold it... or now replace it with a quad core... oh well.
