Summary: Honestly, I tried to watch the market go on ebay and even give results. At $ 10, how to get to pay for the CPU score is incredible. Computer performance, rose visibly and that only $ 10. Thank you, eBay!
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 think that the processor is a good one, however, I bought it by mistake,(my own). It would not work in the situation that I wanted it for. I'm sure that there is nothing wrong with it, I just misapplied it.
AMD 64 Athlon 754 or 939 Socket mother boards processor

Summary: This processor is Fast But If purchased make sure this doesent happen!! The Pins Can Be Damaged Quite easily thus rendering the processor virtually useless, so if purchased handle with very cautious care in order to not damage the gold pins or the processor will not work in your mother board,also proper thermal grease is a must and must be a fresh clean application to the processor before mounting the heat sink and fan, never use pre existing grease from a used processor...
Summary: I havent completed building the new pc with the newest A64 3200+ I bought. But for a little over $30, which included HSF, I could not pass up this cpu bargain. I just recently gave away a 4 year old model that has never stopped kicking.
Pros: Still working strong after 4 years, so I bought a new one for 20% of what it cost back then
