An e8400 is dual core, the quad core chips all started with Q rather than E
I still use an e8400 with fanless Nvidia 8400 GT as a linux, server, and/or freenas playground
Before I moved my windows installation off of it (3 month ago) I had been running Plex on it, and it was transcoding just fine. I don't transcode that often, but I did use it for blu ray rips of Wall E, John Carter, and Silent House as well as a few dvd rips like supernatural and friends.
Thanks for sharing your experience on using the 3570k
