got a new used cpu

INTEL CORE 2 DUO PROCESSOR E6850 3GHz/4M/1333MHz SLA9U CPU

to replace

Intel Pentium D 805 2.66 GHz LGA 775 CPU SL8ZH 2M/533 dual core 64-bit
Based loosely on benchmarks. Maybe x4 performance increases with
cache and improved technology.

Really wanted a quadcore, but. . .

Paid $10 for the D805 long time ago. Paid $10 for the E6850 today.
(A quad might run $70 for the better cached sized series, 12M.
They're, those old Intel quads, are sure holding their values for
entry $40 AMD quad technology.)

HWiNFO provides:
ddr3 sdram
666.7 pc3 10600
g skill
unbuffered dimm
max supported memory clock 533.3 MHz
(266.7 2:1)
6-6-6-15

&

Looks like NewEgg is still selling that (2G) module - hopefully, the
exact same G Skill module still wildly so popular and by far.

Hope I don't get bit in the butt - I'll be going from a x20 FSB > CPU
multipler down to a X9 with that E6850.

Auto detect, naturally, with preferably no nasty beeps, black screens,
repeated goop HSink application and repeated CPU swaps on a friggin'
spring-pin LGA setup. Much preferably, indeed, just a sweet and clean
swapout will do fine.

Depends on whether your motherboard is a good match for it.

Check the bottom of the new CPU, to see that it's clean.
The LGA bites into the gold on each insertion, and the lands
can get chewed up depending on how many times the processor
has been handed around.

It will probably save you a little bit on the electricity bill,
compared to the D805.

Should be...
Gigabyte G41MT-S2PT F2

I made the choice off an provided listing of compatible Intels
http://www.gigabyte.com/support-downloads/cpu-support-popup.aspx?pid=3960

Ah, yes - now I remember hearing that. Wasn't exactly looking for
wear pits in the gold contacts, nor exactly would call Intel LGA my
favorite contact socket. Never have purposefully removed the D805
after my first encountering with a S775 when putting it in. Same will
go for this new one. Case of do it right (seat CPU, seat the HS) and
be done with it - permanently. Way too delicate and I'd being doing
AMDs if the Intel CPUs were any more expensive and less performance
oriented.

Avoided quite a few initially for a "green shop" type setup shop with
regular Ebay dealings and some ratings. That's where I bought with at
least a return policy.

Maybe not as good a Conroe potentially as the Wolfdale series at
45micron, although, initially, appear about the same. I looked over a
few reviews after I'd written that first post and couldn't believe I'd
stumbled onto that particular model. It's a super popular CPU for 5
for years ago. Of course I could be totally wrong about expecting it
to blow that D805 clean out of the water - looking over a few CPU
performances matrices. And a lot of people were looking to overclock
that CPU to 4Ghz (even more/easier with a Wolfdale). Fully expect to
see some searing better results on processor intensive jobs I
occasionally do with the D805.

Unless I'm wrong, there's simply not much difference -on performance
ratings have nothing whatsoever to do with the real world- there's a
memory mismatch, something equally insidious, that won't handle it, or
I loose that wind in the sails and get a CPU that's as braindead as a
gold-plated, cast-iron pancake.

(ps- I strongly resisted the temptation to buy Chinese Xeon
substitutions for a quadcore, complete with ostensibly promised MB
code revisions for rewriting BIOS compatability and variously
implimented hardware S771 pin-strobe modifications. Inspired by
America's workforce office Dells, I suspect. Nice and interesting
looking chips, though, those wily Xeons. Reminded me of AMD K series
and squeezing out an extra 25Mhz from a tiny bottle of autostore
liquid-circuit tracing.)
