Summary: Socket was replaced with no problems. Complete assembly with fan was a surprise. Description said processor only; however the packaging was complete assembly. Good Price; even though the processor was outdated.
Summary: I COULD USE THIS ON THAT BOARD TOO ALL THREE WOULD GO TOGETHER WELL . OR PUT IT TOGETHER FOR SOME LIL BOY OR GIRL TO BE FAST AND HANDLE CERTAIN GAMES ON AND GOOD ENOUGH TO MULTI TASK WITHOUT IT FREEZING ALL THE TIME
Summary: I used to use Athlon 64 3000 and 3800. My concern was that this Athlon 64 3500 was new but more than few years old. I tested this CPU in my computer and found no sign of troubles. This Athlon 64 3500 met my expectations.
