Intel to launch new entry-level processors in August and October

Intel plans to introduce two new entry-level desktop processors in August and October this year, and will drop the price of previous entry-level processors, according to sources familiar with Intel's plan. Intel will launch the new Pentium E2180 with 2 GHz frequency, 1MB L2 cache and 800 MHz FSB on August 26.

In October, Intel will launch the entry-level Core 2 Duo E4600 processor with 2.4GHz frequency, 2MB L2 cache, 800MHz FSB and a price of US$133. The previous E4500 will drop from US$133 to US$113, while E4400 and 4300 fade out the market, added the sources.

I tired running the F@H console on pc1... temperatures of 80*c lol... might need to wait I guess :P

I will suggest the Thermaltake TR2 copper cooler. It only cost me $19 for this Northy and it keeps it really cool... It barely even gets warm to the touch compared to the all aluminum sink that was on it before, it would scorch you!

Cant seem to find that one :S

the only "Arctic Cooling" was Arctic Cooling Freezer 4 (Socket 478) CPU Cooler . ? :(

WOW, 80oC.. has that PC never been run at 100%?

23-06-2007, 17:28:26

Erm most likely its been to 100* ALOT lol I build it back in 2003,
but I stopped caring about the temperature after the 1st week :P
14, lazy with the "if it works don't try and fix it" attitude. :P

Gonna build another rig before Xmas though, but still want to
either sell this or change it into a HTPC.


that isn't healthy is it?
oh yea I took a look at the CPU Heat sink.. its caked in dust as well :O
