Summary: I purchased this Processor in September 2012, in Refurbished condition For 30.00 + Tax. i have an H.P. Pavilion a1310n P.C. from 2006, that i just pulled off a shelf. and i laughed when i fired it up and realized it was a single Core... this processor was available as an upgrade from H.P.
Summary: Cheap upgrade from single core to dual core. No problems at all. Enjoying the nice processing power increase. The machine can now run another 2-3 years and still keep up! Buy some ram too if you need them.
Summary: Bought this cpu as it was most my mobo supported without an upgrade. Pretty good for the price, noticable FPS improvement in games. The stock heatsink isn't very good so I kept using my old one. Run's pretty cool on idle 30-40 celcius. windows rating of 5.3.
Summary: Reliable chip, no problems. Had to apply a good amount of thermal paste, to dissipate the heat. I'm not saying it runs hotter than it should, and the fan that came with our very obsolete computer can handle the extra heat well.
Summary: I got this along with an asus system board at a lower cost on ebay and 60 of these boards with the processor were sold and pulled out of unused machines. The tech they had helped me set up the board for free over the phone. [...] They sell the board, processor, cpu fan, heat sink and the back plate.
Excerpt: AMD Athlon64 X2 Dual-Core 4800+ 2.5GHz 2x512kb Boxed är i mina ögon en prisvärd processor, som erbjuder bra prestanda. Med min processor fick jag även en kylare som håller en mindre god kvalite kyler relativt dåligt och är rätt högljud.
