Still kickin'

Melody P., Newegg
13 December 2011
  • Summary: It's a great CPU, and still holds it's own to this day, it has it's limitations, but, it's held up much better than I thought it would over time. It overclocks nicely, no volt mods, air cooled, and able to run as high as 2.75ghz stable, not bad.
  • Pros: I've had this since 2006, it still works great, I'm running it OC'd on air @2.7ghz, I could easily take it higher, but won't on air. (Need a nice liquid cooler, or something..) I can still play most modern games with this and the rest of my build at fairly high settings. (ex: I was running Oblivi...
  • Cons: Well, it's a great cpu, but really cpu heavy modern games requiring quads, etc, can bring it down a bit. (The only game I've played that I would call unplayable, is GTAIV, even on low, it was running like 15-30fps, depending on the scene.)

great price, great processor

markgil, PriceGrabber
1 March 2007
  • Summary: i replaced an xp 2000 with an NF2 mobo with this and a biostar NF4 mobo. the difference in speed and performance is very noticable and the price can't be beat. i'm not into overclocking as i would rather have the 3 year warrenty. amd by far gives you the most bang for your buck.
  • Pros: socket 939, 1mb L2, very inexpensive
  • Cons: none

Great Chip for the Price

Big Daddy, PriceGrabber
4 February 2007
  • Summary: I picked this chip for my first home built computer. It took a bit of digging to figure out the difference between the CF and the BN part numbers - one is Venice and this one is San Diego. I think San Diego is better because it's the basis of Athlon's FX series.
  • Pros: Price, San Diego Core, 1MB L2 Cache & 939 Socket
  • Cons: OEM fan is heavy otherwise none

Good

Seungbae K., Newegg
27 January 2007
  • Summary: Before I purchase this CPU, I was considering between AMD Athlon 64 San Diego 3700+ and 4000. Because 4000 was OEM which is not contained Heatsink and cooler, I ordered this item. Now, I overclocked to 2.6Gh with no additional voltage and a basic cooler. Excellent item ever.
  • Pros: I upgraded from Pentium 3 series. Of course, it is much faster. BN gives good overclocking rates, too.
  • Cons: No more BNs.

  • Summary: Wouldn't it be nice if it were only one really superfast CPU for every PC... I digress.
  • Pros: The heat output from this processor(89W) is quite low. I recieved measurements of circa 45C @ idle to <= 55C full load. The mem. controller on the K8 CPU releases the mobo from performance limitations, blah, blah, etc. Beautiful proc. for <$100. I OC'ed mine to 2695 MHz(i.e. 11 x 245) it's a step...
  • Cons: what do expect? it is, as it is a few hundred million transistors. Perhaps that it is not true artificial intelligence on the CPU die!!! lol

  • Cons: The price is so low compared to when I bought it.
