Great Single Core CPU

Jammin, Amazon

  • Summary: I saw the current price on this ($400.00)? and just had to comment. I purchased this cpu 2 years ago for around $139.00, and have to say it was (and still is) a great single core cpu. I have used it for intensive gaming and video editing as well as day to day internet,word processing etc.

Great upgrade for me

  • Summary: Supposedly this chip can be significantly overclocked. Practically impossible to find this at a good price now since it's the end of the line for this chip. Upside with the box is the 3 year warranty and comes with fan.
  • Pros: Plug and play. Significant speed increase over my older Athlon XP 3000+
  • Cons: End of line for the 939 socket.

Excellent!

  • Summary: For the price, well worth it! Would buy again but I am upgrading to a higher end processor. Still sticking to AMD though. Other brand runs too hot and seems to not run near as fast as these do at single core!
  • Pros: Excellent speed for the price! Have had for a year and have had no problems runs nice and cool at stock, but went ahead and slapped some Arctic Silver and there just to drop the temps a few degrees.
  • Cons: I assume the bad things about this processor go here.

  • Summary: Other than my limited understanding of overclocking interfering with getting the most out of it , it is great.
  • Pros: Fast, cheap, easy install. Does what it is supposed to.
  • Cons: I am only a novice OC'er andits probably entirely my fault but it hasnt been to friendly for me to OC.

Tis worth it.

  • Summary: Go for it if you play older games,and don't need anything better. As for me. An X2 is on it's way.
  • Pros: Good processor for the price. Runs some games good. Can multitask a little.
  • Cons: If you play any newer games, E.G oblivion or whatever. This processor won't give you the full potential. It bottlenecks, horribly. Overclocked at 2.5ghz it got a 910 in 3dmark06.

Great CPU!!!

  • Summary: Great CPU. Especially now. I would suggest this CPU to ANYONE that doesn't want to spend too much money. It runs GREAT for anything. It multitasks very well for a single core!
  • Pros: VERY low price now! Does a pretty good job multitasking and playing games.
  • Cons: Nothing to complain about but the price drop. Yes. I'm complaining about the price drop. I bought it nearly 2 months before they dropped the price almost double.
