Summary: This chip is an oldy but goody , FX cips are among the best you can get regardless of the speed , very stable chip and good over clocking ability. Would suggest it to anyone wanting to build a mid level gaming machine. Obviously theese chips are A-1, AMD is bringing back the FX architecture in the New Bulldozer chips ... That speaks for itself and says there is something great about the FX chip. If your on the fence about buying an FX chip do it!!!
Summary: Installed this with no problem on my Gigabyte Socket 939 Motherboard. I also installed a Ultra Chilltec Silver Socket 775 to keep it nice and cool because I plan on over clocking this beast. I definetly noticed a drastic speed increase from previously installed AMD 3000+ CPU. Glad to get one of the greatest socket 939 AMD processors!
