£54.92 @ Scan
Just seen this on Scan`s website for £54.92. Bargain considering it can overclock to 4Ghz. Anyone got one who can review it? EDIT: Price dropped to £53.76 :). - Thewyzewun Read More

Can't guarentee the overclock but still hot
#2
brand new model, nice
#3
Good price for people who have motherboards that don't overclock too well.
Can be overclocked to 4ghz.
It's being overshadowed by the E7200/E7300 which overclocks even better plus they are not that more expensive.

E5200 v E7200
200 (800) FSB v 1066 (333) FSB
2mb v3 mb Cashe
12.5 v 9.5 multi

The E7 series has a 50% larger cache and Overclocks better.

In the end it's what you want it for
Good price though
Voted hot

I've just got the E4600 for £75 :w00t:

Might have to become faulty :thumbsup:

Nice but I don't trust Scan after they sent me a used 6600GT once, I had masses of trouble trying to get them to take it back for a refund, they refused to accept it was used even with the pics I sent them with the serial number and everything, very poor service, was the first time I used them and the last time, cowboys. In the end I got so fed up with them I just sold it on Ebay and made a profit lol.
#6
The OP has slipped up. The E5200 is £54.04 in Today Only at Scan, now that makes it a bargain.

I have used scan many times and have found there customer service excellent when you phone them they are generally helpful. I never use ebuyer or dabs now as both of there customer service is terrible I bought something from Ebuyer once using Google checkout (never buy using this if you think you are going to return the item) I send them back the item but they refused to accept they have recieved the item even though I have the DHL tracking number! complete idiots

Im not say that the item you had was not used but the fact is many IT suppliers get stuff sent back to them due to the distance selling act then the company will just sell it as new again when it is basicly not that I condone them doing this. I would give scan another go considering most people now get free delivery of a spend of £20 or more! :)
#12
Scan used to be very poor for customer service but in the past few years they have turned themselves right around and are now very, very good.

I'd be tempted but I'm currently eyeing up a E7200 for my new build.

And on hexus too... but remember you need to spend over 20 quids (or 23.50 if you include vatts)
#14
Scan have terrible customer service. Especially so if you go into the warehouse, they take an absolute age and their receipt system is horribly out of date. They've just purchased the two adjoining units at the Middlebrook centre though which will hopefully mean an overhaul of their systems.
#15
Scan in my opnion have the worst collect service. Have you ever been stood in the q, with the sales guy on the counter talking drivel about fans, with a noob who doesnt know what he wants.
#16
Can only say good things about ebuyer.com, placed dozens of orders and always provide a first rate service. Customer service also very good.

My 2p worth.
#17
I have one of these sitting nicely at 3.5Ghz, Superpi 1M comes in in 16s dead. The E7200/7300 may well clock higher but you have to run those at stratospheric fsbs due to the much lower multipliers so for a heck of a lot of motherboards this will be the better option. If your motherboard can't do in excess of 400Mhz fsb then this is probably better for you: you wont reach 4GHz on the E7 series at any less than 421fsb after all.

I got mine from Scan with free postage and no problems last week by the way for near enough the same price
#18
Price Dropped to £53.76
#19
they will all be droping as intel have cut the prices to make way for the i7 Nehalem cpu's that are due anytime now so not such a bargin as they will be cheaper over the coming weeks and anyone who has bought one to build a new rig a round should have waited as it will be outdated straight away.

If you have a old board check to make sure these newer C2D will be supported because im sure they are a 45nm part so unless you are using the latest stuff you may buy a unsupported cpu even though they use a 800fsb the same as the E4xxxx series they are not made the same,

Just checked and they are a 45nm cpu so the same as the E8xxx stuff so it may not work in older boards or you may need a bios update if there is one for your board
#20
Very good chip in my opinion but I like the E8400 the most.

The E5200 is a great overclocker and at this price it is a red hot bargain. As for Scan very poor customer service.
I notice their site fluctuates a lot, it is up and down more times than a yo yo. But with the addition of free delivery I wouldn't complain.
#21
4Ghz seemed to be an engineering sample, most likely released by Intel to create hype ;)

Still, the chip performs remarkably well.

Got mine at 3.4Ghz so far (only started overclocking last night), and even with half the cache, it eats my old E6550 @ 3Ghz.

Runs very cool as well due to being 45nm :)
#22
I've lost track of the relative merits of Intel CPUs. How would this compare with a Core 2 Duo E6700?
banned#23
Looks like live2giveuk and others havent been in for a while. My last collected order took only a couple of mins - and the lady at the collection desk was very friendly indeed.

(Had a quick look at the xfx buggy as well while I was down there!)
