Ok, having just updated my PC's processor I have my old one for sale. I've had it in my PC since October and had not one single problem with it. It's a high spec chip, and handles modern games well. It's been out about a year now, and to be honest the price hasn't budged since then - it still costs about 110 squid new. Selling this for £70 quid delivered, comes with the reference Intel cooler which has thermal paste on it already.
The chip is based on the 65nm 'Conroe' Architecture, and needs a Socket 775 motherboard. Half the reason I've bought a new chip is because the architecture has been shrunk and the new core is code-named 'Wolfdale'. How cool is that....
This is the review written by Custom PC last year:
Intel Core 2 Duo E6750

Verdict: At £116, it's almost too good to be true
The P35 chipset has been out for over a month, but itís only now that we can officially tell you about Intelís brand-new 333MHz FSB (1,333MHz effective) Core 2 Duo CPUs. To distinguish these new chips from their 266MHz FSB (1,066MHz effective) forebears, Intel has added a Ď50í to the model number.
The first of these new chips is the E6750, which, despite its higher FSB, runs at the same 2.66GHz frequency as the existing E6700. Like the E6700,the E6750 has two cores, each sharing a 4MB Level 2 cache. Despite the increased FSB, and therefore theoretically higher memory bandwidth, the E6750 performs almost identically to the E6700 in our benchmarks at stock speeds. As Intel hasnít made any other enhancements, both chips achieved an overall score of 1.84.
However, this isnít all that surprising, since weíve always known that Core 2 Duo CPUs arenít limited by memory bandwidth, unlike their more bandwidth-hungry quad-core cousins. With a VID of 1.3V, the E6750 proved to be very easy to overclock; by raising its vcore to 1.525V, we managed to increase its FSB to 458MHz, boosting its frequency from 2.66GHz to 3.66GHz. Clearly, the latest Intel chips (as with all Core 2 Duos) have plenty of overclocking headroom.
While the E6750 isnít any faster than the E6700, thanks to the price war between Intel and AMD, itís much cheaper. In fact, the Intel list price is the same as that of the 2.13GHz E6420, so the E6750 is more than 40 per cent cheaper than an E6700. As such, the E6750 is simply stunning value for money.
