Summary: This was sent quickly but due to the type of HP computer I won't be able to use it. The HP photos showed several types of processors and I ordered the wrong one . That was not the sellers mistake, but mine, and they did a great job delivering what I ordered.
Summary: It didn't help so I don't know if this used cpu was dead, of the computer motherboard is dead. so i can't rate this as good or bad. But the shipping was cheap and on time and it came packaged fine, so there's that.
Summary: Not sure which chip this is. I ordered 3 Athlon 64 CPUs, 2 of which came in with smashed pins due to horribly improper packaging. The third one was packaged very professionally and securely. I used it to convert a former 32 bit socket 754 Sempron box to 64 bit Socket 754 Athlon 64 to support CentOS 6 x86_64. It does what I need, but is nowhere near as fast as my current 4 core AMD 64 chip...
Summary: I have acquired the given processor having made a choice almost casually and have been extremely surprised by its characteristics. It really was cold without overclock really from 30 to 40 degrees. It was overclock without problems to frequency of 2.45 gigahertz(without overvoltage). I am very satisfied by this processor.
