First Core 2 Duo to really make the brand stand out. An excellent processor.

Quicly fell out of popularity with newer, cheaper, and better chips like the E6750 coming out shortly after.

I had mine for a while with an 8800GTX. Stock speeds were fast enough for games, but there might be limitations in newer ones. OCing puts this as a decent dual core chip even in the days of 45nm quads.

Overclocks easily. I had mine at 3.2GHz for ~6 months before I sold it and upgraded to an E6750.

I bough one Aug07 ish (right when intels quad core came out) and still use it on my workstation with a freezer7pro. I remember a really good batch came out and was actually a topic of discussion for some time. I was a lucky one and have had it OC'ed at 3.2ghz stable since I bought it. A 50% OC is crazy. Originally had it paired with an EVGA 680i but my memory and mobo crapped out last year. Still running strong with my 780i. Great OC potential.
