My new Intel Core 2 Duo E8400 arrived. Installation was mostly painless.

What impresses me the most isn't the speed or anything like that. It's how cool it runs:

The E8400 runs even cooler in my existing setup than my E4300 did. Very nice.

Overall I'm seeing a notable improvement just about everywhere. My VMWare sessions are a lot smoother. Apps do launch faster and seem to be more stable. There's a lot less 'stuttering' than before, particularly when I drag app windows around.

One thing I'm really pleased about is how much better Flash works. I can view full-screen YouTube HD flash videos like this one easy now.

So, yeah. I'm a happy guy. 🙂
