BIOS and Microcode upgrades may be necessary 5 April 2011
By MindlessBrains - Published on Amazon.com

I installed the Intel Core 2 Duo Processor E7600 3.06GHz 3 MB LGA775 CPU, Retail BX80571E7600 CPU to upgrade my wife's computer (HP/Compaq dc7700) and soon realized that I would have to update the BIOS and Microcode versions on the motherboard (chipset Intel Q965). Luckily, the firmware is available from the HP website. If you are going to upgrade an older machine then I highly recommend updating the firmware before installing this CPU. And don't forget to purchase a thermal compound such as Arctic Silver 5. Using a thermal compound between the CPU and heat sink will avoid burning up and destroying your brand new CPU in a few seconds...

Also, I bought the faster CPU because I replaced the older Windows XP (32-bit) operating system with the newer Windows 7 (64-bit) and wanted to boost performance. I am happy to report that after installing the CPU and additional memory (Corsair TWIN2X4096-6400C5C 4GB XMS2 PC2-6400 800Mhz 240-pin Dual Channel DDR2 Desktop Memory) the system's performance has drastically improved!

I am very satisfied with this small investment in hardware ($222) and so is my wife...

Good Luck!
Intel duo Core CPU is great....Fan Install Feature Stinks! 5 Oct 2010

I upgraded my PC cpu to the Intel Core2 Duo Processor E7600 to be able to run Parallels and multiple OS's. The cpu installed easily and works great, however, I could not properly install the NIDEC cpu fan that came with it. I tried to carefully follow the graphical procedure (no written instructions are provided) shown in the Booklet. I aligned the four plastic inserts with the threaded holes on the motherboard, push down on each plastic cap to snap the four corners in and then turned each cap 90 degrees to lock them. Unfortunately, two caps did not and could not be locked in place. I had to foreably remove the fan and use the original cpu fan (with locking screws) in its place. I contact Intel(email) to get a replacement cpu fan, however, so far the only response I got was an email acknowledging that they will respond as soon as possible.

Can't beat the quality 2 Sep 2012

I love the price vs quality of this processor. For the price, it has always been dependable and with the 4gb ram, and 1gb video memory I haven't found anything that has prevented it from offering satisfactory results. I would buy another in a second!

It's been some time since I bought this processor, and I've been using it with Windows 7 and 8GB of Ram. This processor is extremely fast, and has never let me down. I have run many programs at once without having a problem. This processor has held up through the years and my computer still runs like new. I've run video editing software along with photoshop and many other really heavy programs that should have put a strain on the computer, but it held up and performed beautifully through all the challenges I've put it through.
