This is basically a budget minded core 2 duo; it has less cache granted, but at 2.5Ghz, this deal ain't bad at all. Especially considering the higher end C2D E8200 @2.66Gz still costs more than 100 quid.

Spec:
2.5Ghz dual core based on core 2
2MB L2 Cache
, 800MHz FSB,
Socket LGA775, 45 nm,
3 Year Warranty, Retail Boxed

Supposedly they overclock like a dream!

hot price..

yeah the 5200, 2200 and the 2160 clock like a dream - you can grab a 2160 from various places from about £25 - £30! And they all clock the same regardless - only diff is that the 45nm chips run a bit cooler and use a little lett power... sweet ain't they - just picked up a 2200 myself

FYI: PC Pro magazine did their annual CPU review this month and came up with the E5200 as the baseline VFM CPU to buy.

If you do miss out on this offer worth also considering Scan.co.uk at the weekends as they typically have many CPUs on 'special today only' over every weekend (£59.33 currently) though they charge for P&P - unless you're in one of the favoured free delivery (over £25 or whatever) groups.

my E8400 is on 4GHz, on air,
both cores are normally 40°C,
58°C under max load :thumbsup:

Nice work, BTW, what motherboard are you using?

Any decent am2+ boards going? I want one of those so that i can eventually upgrade to the phenom II 940

NOVATECH = Asus P5KPL-AM iG31 = £43.69
Intel Dual Core E5200 2 x 2.5Ghz = £59.79

this is a bargain bobafett but i am only a mile away from novatech and they have great customer service team.

The daughter has one of these at 3.4ghz and it did that on very little voltage but its in a rampage board and with some messing 3.8 should be within reach and they run lovely and cool. I put it up against my media pc with a e4400 at 2.7ghz remembering that the e4xxx series where a lot more money and the e5200 murdered it i couldn't get close.

But for those thinking that they will get 4ghz don't rely on it most people that reviewed it where using pre production ones that intel sent them that's why 4ghz was reached because intel knew they would get 4ghz and it would get good press for being massive budget clockers but some couldn't get no where near or they where using water and massive amounts of voltage and it will require decent memory and a decent motherboard and psu as for the deal what deal its been lower than this on scan so cold its normal price.

I'd agree on not relying on it, but only because each CPU varies slightly. You might well get an E5200 that can't even make 3GHz, it's all luck of the draw.

That right but by mentioning the 4ghz that some professional groups got while benching pre production models will make people on here assume that they will get e8600 crushers for £50 what im saying is its a great chip and 60% will clock past 3ghz but its not guaranteed some will be lucky to do 2.6ghz and it all comes down to skill to push for massive clocks juggling voltage and fsb and temperatures and you will also need quality kit you wont get one of these to 3ghz+ on £30 motherboard with some generic ram and a £10psu and you will need a decent hsf because the retail intel one is lucky it can cool the cpu's at stock speeds

At this point if i was going to buy everything motherboard CPU memory i would wait as in a couple of months Intel is launching its new CPU and there will be the accommodating motherboards from the usual manufacturers the chip will be the i5 a cut down i7 chip with some of the fancy stuff gone and the new motherboards will be the P55 a follow on from the P35 and P45 no doubt followed by other cheaper motherboards based on different chipsets and it will be using ddr3 which is dropping in price everyday and is as cheap if not cheaper than current ddr2 and speculation is that for a whole new rig we will be around £300.

I know its a lot more money than this but it will be the latest and greatest stuff that will be good for a long time where if you buy this it will be out dated instantly this is a great CPU if you have a capable motherboard that you have a dual core celeron or a single core p4 that you want to squeeze another 12 months out of but if your looking at a full new build keep your pennies and get the i5 in June. if your thinking of overclocking and like the high spec stuff and you like to be at the cutting edge wait.

£5 cheaper without fan and 3% quidco

novatech.co.uk/nov…00O

Obviously if you need the fan and feel the 3 year warranty is needed (CPUs are near impossible to kill) then the OPs item is for you.

Will this work in a Shuttle SD30G2? The chip in it at the moment runs terribly hot (and slow with it!)

The specs are here if anyone would be kind enough to confirm one way or t'other.

Hmm processors are getting more expensive in the UK as this can be had for $70 in the States.. Paid £70 for my E7200 (@3.8 stable) half a year ago when it first came out. Brought my mate a Q6600 around about the same time for £110 and now its £160+!

Seems like we're getting even more ripped off the way our economy is going.

come to think of it, the government did cut VAT. but the price is still

£XX.99

did any of you notice the prices. it should come down right? but most of them did not. for example fastfood(i.e. burger king, Macdonalds, Kfc, etc......). i am quite confused.

some foods are zero rated remember, alongside some are 21% VAT :thumbsup:

Well, the pounder is weaker, so to obtain profit margin, foreign firms like sony chose to increase their price by quite a bit. Afterall, a year ago, a pound gets you 2 dollars, now onlyy about 1.4 dollars...

I don't understand - why is this deal hot?

Can be had for around the same price at most places.

VAT at 21 (or 21.5% since Jan 09 I think) is Republic of Ireland - no?

Erm, how is that more expensive ? :?

$70 is £51 right now. Add on our 15% VAT, and you get £59.

It's £2 cheaper over here.

One of the best cpu's ever made.

consumes hardly any power, and overclocks like a dream.
