Processor and motherboard are humming right along in their tower as I have come to expect from Intel products and I'm a happy camper. All information provided is subject to change at any time, without notice. It is intended to be a spare processor for an important machine. Low power consumption for the performance it gives Still a lot of heatsinks out there that are compatible with this chip. Will alter my review if something comes up. We won't share your email with anybody. Was nice and clean when I received it, old thermal pad removed etc.

Condition: Used, Clock Speed: 3. Extended Page Tables in Intel® Virtualization Technology platforms reduces the memory and power overhead costs and increases battery life through hardware optimization of page table management.
I still have the stock fan that came with it. Had a very hard time finding one, till I came across this refurb. Built-in visual technologies, like Clear Video and InTru3D, support high-definition and Blu-ray playback. When I received it had a sticker that was not able to be removed on the connecting section of the item. International returns require buyer to cover all shipping costs.
Intel processor numbers are not a measure of performance. Contacted Amazon and they overnighted a replacement shipment. Max Turbo Frequency refers to the maximum single-core processor frequency that can be achieved with Intel® Turbo Boost Technology. This efficient, multi-core-optimized implementation increases the probability that each core can access data from faster, more efficient cache subsystem resulting in significantly reduced latency for frequently used data and improved performance. Additionally, the i5 comes with Advanced Vector Extensions, a set of instructions to improve software performance for intensive applications like audio processing, audio codecs, and image and video editing applications.

Turbo Boost for Extra Processor Speed The Core i5-2400 features Intel Turbo Boost Technology 2. It delivers an even greater automatic speed increase by allowing processor and graphics cores to run faster than the base operating frequency for demanding applications if the processor is operating below power, current, and temperature specification limits. What used to take 30-40 to convert a 20 minute video from. I had to stress more than once that I wanted to return and get a refund. The heatsink includes thermal coupling already applied, so all you need to do is click the heatsink into the motherboard and plug in the fan.
Cons: Today's stuff isn't much faster, but is a bit more power efficient. Other Thoughts: Aside from the price, which I think could be lower, no real complaints so far. By on January 24, 2011 With Sandy Bridge, Intel has set new standards in both performance and power consumption. Cons: Since this is a refurbished item. It is quite possible that it would. Other Thoughts: Although I have not purchased this exact refurb chip, I have been using an i5-2400 system for 3 and a half years and it never skips a beat.
I was in dire need of an upgrade. As my headline says, it is a great value. I edit and render videos that I get from my Tivo. This reduces latency and improves performance. I'm seeing 8300 on GeekBench, putting this machine in the same league as previous generation i7 processors.
It is possible to slightly overclock this processor from 3. Pros: Worked great right out of the shipping package. Especially if you have no need to overclock. Please refer to the Launch Date for market availability. Price is still up there, even for a refurb chip.
