Summary: Why buy? Along with the RAM I bought, this upgrade improved performance as expected. Equivalent to replacing a stock V-6 with a stock V-8. Likes and dislikes. You still only go from stop light to stop light, but you have more headroom, just not in the cabin. Comparisons Intel chips don't fit into an AMD motherboard, and it is the fastest chip the manufacturer recommends for my MB. Extensively reviewed on web.
