Intel Core 2 Duo E4300
Released December, 2006
The Pros:Excellent overclocking capacity for this type of processor, can hit speeds in excess of 3.0GHz. Remains cool, stable temperatures even when overclocking. Good performance while gaming, even under heavy load temperatures are in low 50s.
The Cons:2MB cache where many competing models have 4MB. Stock cooler must be upgraded to reach highest clock speed potentials.
The Intel Core 2 Duo E4300 is a 1.80 GHz, 800MHz FSB processor with 2MB Cache and falls at the bottom of Intel's line of Core 2 Duo Processors. All processors in this line have 2 cores (hence the name) meaning they have two distinct processors on one chip allowing them to work seperately or together on a single large task.
