I just bought a new computer. I was told it had a Core2 Duo E5300, but when I look at System Properties it says it has a Dual Core E 5200. Did I get "taken"? Should I take this back and demand they give me the E5300?
Wow, I'm shocked! I really thought I was sold a Core 2 Duo. However, I did read that the E5200 has a 12.5 multiplier--not that I understand that--and can be overclocked, if the motherboard is good. Can you tell me if the Gigabyte S-series G41M-ES2L is a good one for overclocking? The box says it supports Core 2 Duo and Core 2 Quad.
Actually, it wasn't so much that I was promised an E5300. But the spec sheet hanging from the computer said Intel Core 2 Duo E5300 2.66ghz 2mL2 CPU. Now that I realize that the E5300 is not Core 2, my confidence in this place is shaken!
